Looking for a netlabel?
Be sure that your work is for Open Metal Records. It might be awesome quality but not fit here.
Your creations have to be innovative, and fit in one or several of those categories :
- Progressive Metal - Experimental Metal - Ambient Metal - Post Metal -
Or metal melted with one or several other genre that has normally nothing to do with. Of course sub-genres of the above genres are welcome too (for instance Progressive Death Metal).
Good quality production will be required, this does not mean professional - level recordings but if you recorded your band with a tape dictaphone in the drummer's bathroom... unless it sounds really cool by any miracle, it won't be released here.
All the albums / EPs / Compilations featured here are released under Creative Commons license, and spread over the internet by any means necessary*. When some materials are released here there is no turning back.
