BAND, PRESS AND PROMO CONTACT:

To the BANDS:
Our 2015 release schedule (yes, we work with schedules) is almost finalized. If you are interested in a release next year or later, there's a chance, but we're really picky bastards, so we must totally love your music to be interested in signing you (we like hundreds of bands, but that's not enough). That's still not enough though: your English has to be at least on a good level and you have to be ACTIVE as a band (playing a lot of live shows, maintaining good web presence, through your own website and social networking pages, mainly Facebook). And be realistic! Do you REALLY think your music fits to our label profile? And you are convinced that you can compete with the bands that are on our roster? If you're sure about it, then go on...

And, PLEASE READ BEFORE SENDING US AN E-MAIL:
If your main inspiration is Rhapsody of Fire and you call your music power metal or (especially) if you play nu "metal", emo, screamo, metalcore, deathcore, hardcore, grindcore, mallcore (or any "core" for that matter), goth, alternative, industrial etc. - don't waste our time with your stuff - and you will not waste yours. This is a METAL label, as the name indicates. If you're not sure what we mean, check the genres we're into (info on the right)... and listen to the bands from our roster!
We appreciate some old school death (bands playing in the vein of UNLEASHED, ASPHYX, AUTOPSY, DEATH...) and black metal (mostly the stuff from the 1st wave of BM), but there are very few bands playing these styles that could be interesting for us as a label. However if you play this special mix of thrash, black, doom and death in the true early '80s vein, it could be right up our alley (especially if you sound like VENOM or HELLHAMMER!).

OK... since in spite of what I wrote above, we still receive a SHITLOAD of requests from individuals, who are either illiterate or don't take their time to read what I wrote here (big mistake!) or are simply DUMB (unbelievable, but sometimes we do get a request from a metalcore band being convinced they fit perfectly to MOMR because they play "REAL" metal - yeah, THAT'S how skewed some people's idea and perception about metal can be, hahaha), let me reiterate it:

NO nu "metal", NO hardcore, NO mallcore (or ANY fucking "core" for that matter!), NO groovy modern tough-guy shit (à la Pantera, to give you a good idea), NO screamo, NO emo, NO alternative, NO post-anything, NO gothic (and any bands with FEMALE operatic singers in general!), NO glam, NO industrial, NO grind, NO ambient, NO drone, NO sludge, NO grunge, NO funk, or other styles that mainstream media try to sell as metal, but either have nothing or almost nothing to do with real metal.
If you play any of the aforementioned styles and you still waste your and our time writing to us, well, you're showing you're dumb.
And also "NO, thanks" to: Euro "power" metal (read: happy metal where keyboards are more important than guitars... we like only US style power metal), most black (especially symphonic... we like only the 1st wave of BM and bands that play in this raw '80s style, so if Venom, Hellhammer and Celtic Frost are your main influences, feel free to contact us) and death metal (especially brutal death metal... we like only classic old school stuff in the vein of Unleashed, Death, Asphyx, Autopsy...).

I read ALL your e-mails and check your music (unless I see from the e-mail or/and your page that it's clearly not our cup of tea - then I don't waste my time of course), but please DO NOT expect a reply, even if we might like your music. It's too time consuming to reply to all e-mails, so I decided to reply ONLY in case we are seriously interested in co-operation. Thanks for your understanding.

To JOURNALISTS and RADIO DJs:
If you want to receive any promo materials (albums for reviewing, music for the airplay, CDs for give-aways etc.), don't hesitate to contact me (Jowita). I will get back to you as soon as I can!

And a shameless plug: my artwork website...
