Metal for a Fallen World, Vol. 2
Hi y'all. John and I received some pretty fabulous news today. Our song Soul to Keep has been included in The Covenant Metal Show's compilation album, Metal for a Fallen World, Vol. 2. It's available digitally through their bandcamp page and will be released on CD at a later date.
Congrats, you two. Out of interest, how does that work? If I were to buy the album, would you get a piece of the action? How big a piece?
I noticed that one of the other bands is called "Taking the Head of Goliath." I misread it as "Talking Head of Goliath," which would be an even better name LOL
I may or may not be an enigma
Ha! Talking Head. I read it that way too when I first saw it.
Thanks Gavin. To answer your question, we would eventually get a small (very small) royalty from each digital sale. I don't know how it will work when the CD is pressed because that's part of a larger project (volumes 1 and 2 combined as a set with artwork and such) so there are more people involved in the production. For us, this achievement is more about exposure than about royalties. It's a way to grow our audience and be heard. There is no question that we get greater royalties from downloads that happen from Evans and Stokes via digital download sites like itunes. So, if you were wanting to support our work, that would be the best way to do that.
I know Gavin. But it was a good question. There are some pretty heavy songs on the compilation (what's called death metal) that I think might blow you all the way back to your homeland Scotland were you to play it. You'd find yourself standing on some heather clad slope near Ben Nevis wondering how you got there. Certainly Evans and Stokes are the "lightest" of the bunch, along with bands like Lordchain
Japov sauce... lol 🙂 We obviously need to broaden your base a bit Gav!
Congrats E/S !!! "Soul to keep" Is definitely one of my favorites, it's one of your more 'natural' sounding arrangements IMO 🙂
Thanks Tony. It is for sure. We're putting a few songs like that on our next album as well as some that are effects-ed to the hilt. Should be an interesting mix
