We are a hard working unsigned Pagan Metal band out of Southern California. We have been helping build the folk/pagan metal scene, not just in California but throughout the U.S. for almost 4 years now. Our lead singer has been pushing the genre for over a decade. We have been called "pioneers" by our European peers and that is something we are deeply proud of. After 3 years of hard work, we got a break that almost never happens to unsigned bands, we were offered the chance of a lifetime. We were given the opportunity to tour with PAGANFEST USA!!! This is the pinnacle tour in the U.S. for bands of our genre. On this tour we were able to showcase our style of music to fans across the U.S. and Canada. Alongside ENSIFERUM, TYR, HEIDEVOLK, and TROLLFEST we played to thousands of rabid fans having the time of our lives and making great new friends in the process. Now we are in the next faze of our career. OUR DEBUT ALBUM!!! We need your help gathering funds for this. Basically we need money for recording, mixing, mastering, and printing. We are a humble band with limited means and funds. With your help we can continue to make this dream a reality.
What We Need & What You Get
We already have some money into this project and with $5000 more we can deliver an "industry standard" album that you would be happy to own and that we would be proud to sell.
We are great full for any donation and with most donations you will receive a hand written thank you from a member of the band. Larger donations will come with perks such as stickers, signed photographs, signed copies of our album upon completion, t-shirts, signed drum sticks, guitar picks, and more. Every perk besides the cd will be a limited edition run that you will only be able to get by donating to this cause.
If we do not reach our goal of $5000 we will still be completing the album and you will still be getting your perks.
All perks are to be issued after completion of the album. You will receive an estimated issue date and updates via e-mail.
If we have to complete this project on our own it is going to take a lot longer to get this amazing album out to the public. With your help we are looking to have a spring 2014 release date.
