When a refund right becomes a crime…

It’s not even funny anymore: nowdays most popular sport is to claim back Paypal refunds. Customers want stuff in advance and they want it now, although most likely they will not care about it anymore the day after receiving it,  still… they want it now or even before.. yesterday! If they don’t receive what they...

Jewels we envy to other labels..

it’s not that many, but it’s quite a few. But talking about record that left some scars in me in the last few years, this one is still on top of them all. Have a look here gringos:  Blindead – Affliction XXVII II MMIX The beauty and the angst that are present in every single...
Past & Present...

Past & Present…

We were young and we are (getting) old: everybody should be conscious, to the extreme edge, of his own reality. We had the pleasure and related commercial success to work with bands like (***) Katatonia, Mayhem, Behemoth, Shining, Carpathian Forest, Taake and so on, and experienced the privilege to sell many records and, most importantly,...

Albums to check out pt.1

One year ago two different record labels proposed me to co-produce and co-release the new album of Finnish weirdos ORANSSI PAZUZU, due to the high recording costs they’d demand they needed another label to joint-venture this project. I didn’t have the balls to jump into the picture although I loved the band from their two...
They talk... they talk... they talk...

They talk… they talk… they talk…

Sometimes I get pissed off by the excess of communication we are sort of obliged to nowdays. Facebook was a genious invention of course, its success speaks for itself, but I wonder why bands have fallen to such low levels…:  their ”need to apologise” (in a way) and to explain everything they do is pathetic, and...

KAUAN @ KRUNA 2012

The live debut of KAUAN is just another good reason to turn on the lights on our super active friends of KOGAIONON and DONIS ART. It was indeed a big surprise for us to hear that Anton finally made it: recruiting musicians and starting to conceive KAUAN as a real band ready to performconcerts. A...
The still life of vinyls

The still life of vinyls

One thing that always amused me in these latest years is the utopia around the vinyl’s apparent new life… If somebody fancied the illusion, I am sorry to wake you up but the vinyls are not gonna save nowdays music industry’s fragile asses. Now, we are probably not the most reliable voice out of the...
In Death of B

In Death of B

Jonas Bergqvist died 9.9.11: apparently he didn’t wake up from his (last) sleep. I got the news the morning after from a friend close to the band. ‘B’ or ‘Nattdal’ were also artistic nicknames he used over the years with Lifelover, Woundism, Dimhymn and IXXI (as a tragic coincidence IX & XI are the numbers...

“Why did you guys decide to change Avantgarde ?” - Change ? What do you mean - “That now no more BM no more extreme stuff ?! Mostly Doom and “pop rock” releated stuff ?!” Ah ah, this could be integrated in the ‘mission‘ section…. however, I take the chance now by using this small Facebook...
