My friend and an awesome neoclassical shredder Borislav Mitic has recently signed for Lion Music which is the metal label from Finland that also released my album.

Just before he released his new record he posted a very seirous story about "The Murder of Music" on the Lion Music's website. Some of other Lion Music artists (including me) also gave their input on this subject.

CHECK IT OUT HERE!

I would be interested to see comments on Borislav's text from GMC community.

Artists have been poor through out all times, then there was a period where one could package music on f.ex CD's and earn very much; but that period is over.
- Alexander Bard

I guess there's some truth to that quote. Record industry bit it's own tail getting too greedy. Spotify and their likes are great for discovering new music, just great to be able to randomly listen (which radio isn't) and suddenly hear something that pulls the carpet under your feet.
I can't think of buying mp3's, music in the cyber void or on harddrives. So I don't think CD's - or some other format - will go away just yet.
At least I want music to come in a keep case.

No, Im speaking not about tomorrow... it will of course take some time (due to the stubbornness Im talking bout), but in a couple of years maybe.... I would personally prefer to buy an album the real old-fashion way, in vinyl with those great looking covers - but the kids growing up now are'nt thinking the way we do...l. sad.gif

Staffy, all of them (labels) have Youtube, Myspace, Facebook, Twitter etc.. channels smile.gif Plus they are in magazines, webzines and a lot more.

You said "why should they visit an online store to pay for them". Ok then where should people look to buy stuff?


First, I also have a Youtube channel, Myspace channel as well as Facebook, people hardly visit my pages either. What Im talking about here is paid advertising on the normal pages the users sees. There is hardly no advertising at all at Facebook for instance (which I visit daily) directed to me at my own page - even that the ads are for sale and they are incredible simple to advertise on. That the labels have their own channels doesn't mean that they are doin any effort to market their artists.

The answer on the last one is simple: People dont WANNA pay for music, they wanna to download it for free. So what to do? Let them download some teasers for free and then sell them a high quality product when they are liking your music. And now Im not talking bout some low-end MP3's that sounds like crap..... (I bought some music at Itunes and some of the encodings were TERRIBLE....) Thats why Im saying that the business must adopt a new format to get rid of pirating.

But how to make them buy your music if they like it. I see no way of making them pay for it. They have teasers available everywhere.
