Spread the Metal Records owes a debt of gratitude to Josh Hogan and his record label, Diminished Fifth Records, but also to his music solutions company, Red Tentacle. Learning about the music business is something that everyone involved in the industry should take an active interest in. When STM Records was just starting up, it was Josh who provided invaluable advice and who promoted the first few releases.
Nowadays, the team at Spread the Metal Records knows a thing or two about putting out albums and creating effective buzz around a release. We are expanding into music solutions ourselves and wish to offer bands not already signed to our label the same kind of support that Josh Hogan, Hassan King, and Red Tentacle gave to Spread the Metal.
Part of holding ourselves accountable to our clients is realizing our limitations. We know metal. That is our genre of choice and promoting metal music is what the label does exclusively. That being said, non-metal acts may not be able to benefit as much as bands that play metal. We can certainly set aside some time to talk and will be able to offer something tangible, but we do not want to promise the world and then not deliver. It is not good business, and it would not be the best use of your money. Metal bands will find our list of services to be just what they are looking for.
On the right is a list of services that we can provide to artists who are learning this crazy business as they go along. Spread the Metal Records will design a package that suits the individual needs of you, the artist. Peruse the following list and then follow up with us about how you would like us to help.
