Yesterday, I made a comment at the end of this post on Metal Church, about how they’ve just recorded an album using their own studios, with no funding from fans.
The comment was that if Metal Church could self-fund an album, Austrian Death Machine surely fucking could. I got a bunch of email from people, including a few folks I respect.
This is non-fucking-sense. Tim Lambesis OWNS a record studio. He’s getting all his pals to contribute to the record.
I think Tim owes people a better explanation of where their money is going.
This, to me, smacks of the first crowd-funding campaign that’s more of a publicity stunt…with the ass tattoo option and all the rest of it.
Now we’re learning Triple Brutal will also boast a contribution from former Bleeding Through guitarist Dave Nassie.
Is the crowd-funding just to pay for all the guests on the disc?
Allegaeon’s Ryan Gilsan, Impending Doom drummer Brandon Trahan, God Forbid guitarist Doc Coyle, Carnifex vocalist Scott Lewis and ex-Sworn Enemy guitarist Lorenzo “The Main Event” Antonucci have all recorded parts for the LP.
This is just shamelessness defined.
