Willpower Entertainment has been faced with extinction many times, and have come back stronger than ever before. Our longevity and growth is and will be due to the fact that we see each failure as just a temporary defeat instead. In working with our bands, we believe that nothing great is accomplished alone, and we can serve each other in ways that neither band nor label has even thought of yet. But most importantly, we do what needs to be done, regardless of whether we feel like it or not.
In short, the label handles the business end of things and lets the bands focus on the music. It's a partnership, whereby we utilize the strengths of each individual band member in order to make the entire organization stronger. Straight answers are always given, fair royalties are always paid out, every legitimate opportunity is pursued, and metal is king.
In case we didn't make ourselves clear, Willpower Entertainment is gunning for the top spot, and our game-plan is one of fairness, mutual cooperation, and aggressiveness. Join us or get out of the goddamn way.

What the Future Holds
MAJOR GROWTH: We aggressively seek out unsigned talent, as well as established bands who have been given a raw deal with their previous labels. Our roster will become positively thick with deadly talented metal bands from all over the world (we've started already, as you can plainly see), and Willpower Entertainment will become a household name in metal.
HIGH PROFILE TEAM MEMBERS: As Willpower Entertainment expands, so too will our depth of contacts and our talent pool of managers and booking agents. This is of paramount importance to us. We are talking major players in the international metal scene, and they will have Willpower Entertainment bands on their roster of clients.
CONCERT TOURS: The label has tried this sort of thing in the past and learned some expensive, but well taken, lessons. In the future, Willpower Entertainment will be getting behind live music in a very big way. Give us some time to make it all happen.
TONS MORE: Who knows which opportunities will present themselves to us? We are constantly seeking them out, and rest assured, Willpower Entertainment will deliver big results.
Our Standard of Ethics
*Our bands retain creative control of their music. The label has no place in telling the artist what they should write about or how they should sound. We offer suggestions and advice all the time, but the artistic vision is the responsibility of the artist.
*The label has an open door policy with respect to our bands and their relationship with Willpower Entertainment is one of mutual cooperation. That means sales figures and statistics are always available to the artists upon request and our bands always receive a straight answer.
*Work ethic is valued above all else. We do what needs to be done, regardless of whether we feel like doing it or not. There is no other way.
*The music business is a volatile place full of empty promises and unreasonable contracts. It is for this reason that to stand out, courtesy and professionalism go such a long way. When you treat people with courtesy and deal with them in good faith, great things will happen.
*If you're not making someone else's life better, then you're wasting your time. We don't waste time, and we strive to make a positive impact on the world that has been so good to us.
*Bad things will always happen, but success comes from how you deal with them. As Shakespeare says, "Nothing is either good or bad; thinking makes it so". We live by that, and when we make mistakes, the responsibility is all ours. That's half of it. The other half is giving straight answers to anyone we wronged, and working together to find a solution.
