We salute you! We can't thank you enough for helping us out and saving some lives with us. There are some incredible perks ahead, but smaller donations mean everything to us as well and will add up to a huge difference. You will receive our humblest appreciation and gratitude on the STM website and Facebook page in the form of an official "Thank You" and a free song download from any band at the festival that you'd like.
This is just the beginning. It's fairly simple, you get your name on the offical STM website and Facebook page in the form of a "thank you" as well as a free download of three songs of your choice by any band you'd like. May we suggest power thrashers Edge of Attack? Heavier? Check out the new Suffocation album, Pinnacle of Bedlam!
The boys in Crimson Shadows can drink. And they want to buy YOU one! But they are not alone. Any support band at the festival will buy you a beer, and drink with you! You also get a digital download of their album to go with it! That goes for everyone except SUFFOCATION, THE AGONIST, AUGURY and SKULL FIST, and any extra headliner we may add later. But there are perks below where you can chill with them too!
We have some incredible bands who aren't even performing at the festivals but are still signing albums for the cause. It's pretty easy to tell who they are, as they will be posting on FB/Twitter about their participation. This is also where you can 'vote' for which bands you'd like to win the Battle of the Bands for both festivals. Simply add their name to the comments section to vote! We'll then hook you up with their album. Signed, sealed, and delivered.
Same deal as above. Band XYZ promoted the crowd-funding initiative on FB? Then write in their name when ordering this perk and receive the signed vinyl album of your choice from that band. Royalties go to the band for their recording, and the rest of your contribution goes to the non-profit organizations! Some POSSIBLE exceptions and/or limits might be announced, but this is how it's going to work for now. Email us any time with questions!
Kiva is one of the organizations that we're supporting this year. They fund small businesses in struggling economies worldwide and literally save the lives of the people that those businesses affect. So with this perk, you'll get a $25 loan to Kiva placed in your name, an official "thank you", and just to prove we haven't gone soft...a free digital album download from melodic death metal masters, Fallen Joy!
Hoo-rah. This is where it gets interesting for you music lovers. You like signed albums and guitar picks? Well with this perk, you get a signed album from the headliner (or any other band at the fest) of your choice, a guitar pick from your favorite headliner, an official "thank you", as well as a free album download from Israeli death metal/grind-core heavy-hitters, Whorecore!
We take a strong moral stance against service fees and waiting in line. So with this perk, you get a ticket to the festival, along with other cool stuff. Things like a signed album from the headliner of your choice (or any other band performing at the festival), a signed set list (again, from whoever you'd like who is at the festival), an official "thank you" from STM Records and a guitar pick from your favorite headliner! And you will also literally be saving lives. 'Nuff said.

With this perk, you get your chance to head backstage and meet your favorite headliners at the festival. They'll sign anything you'd like, share some stories or a beer. All for the cause! Tell us who you're coming to see, and what you'd like them to sign. The album itself comes with this perk, as well as their guitar picks and drum sticks. Not only that, but they'll sign their set list and take a quick picture with you! All we ask is that you remain respectful and let them have their space!

The name says it all...or does it? With this perk, not only will you be invited to the sound check and hooked up with a ticket to the festival, but the headliner of your choice will record an answering machine message for your phone. How cool is that? You'll also get a free digital download of the entire STM catalog! Oh yea, and signed albums and set lists from every headliner. You're welcome.

You hate them as much as they deserve to be hated. Well now here's your chance to get even. Matt Day from Spread the Metal Records will take the hit, quite literally. He has offered to atone for the sins of the entire record industry and for what they've been doing to artists all these years. You can punch him as hard as you'd like, on stage, with boxing gloves. Since you'll need to be at the fest, a ticket comes with this perk as well as signed albums and set lists from every headliner!

First of all, you'll be able to hang out with the headliner of your choice before the show and attend the sound check. We'll load you up with signed albums from all the headliners, signed set lists, digital downloads of the entire STM catalog, a ticket to the fest, guitar picks from the headliners, an official thank you, and signed shirts from every band performing at the festival!!! Do you play guitar? Bring it to the show and get it signed by a headliner! What else IS there???
