Every day is a good day at The Sonic Sensory, it’s not all about the big hitters of the music industry, in fact the smaller guys are more willing to talk, to take you inside their worlds and show you what pushes them towards certain genres and certain music. Crawling Chaos Productions (based in Australia) allowed us some time to cover the music they’ve got upcoming, opinions on the future of the label, as well as some other thoughts on this and that. This is what the man behind Crawling Chaos Productions had to talk about:
1. Where is Crawling Chaos Productions based, is it a singly operated business or are there others who help work the label towards a goal?
I am based in NSW, a couple of hours south of Sydney on the coast. CCP is singly operated by me, but I do occasionally receive help when needed.
I see the label plodding along and doing its thing, releasing music when the time is right. Our next release is a demo by a death metal band from Melbourne named CONTAMINATED. You can stream or download the demo in full on our bandcamp page; http://crawlingchaosproductions.bandcamp.com/album/pestilential-decay
I’ve been a fan of Australian metal for years and many of my favourite bands hail from this country. Obviously Vilifier, Vahrzaw and Contaminated caught my ear enough for me to release their music, but there are plenty of bands currently putting out quality material. I would recommend; Eskhaton, Impetuous Ritual, Grave Upheaval, Altars, Demonreich, Black Jesus, Wolfe, Bastardizer, Evil Intent and Hellbringer.
I believe the internet to be a blessing and a curse. Piracy is always going to be around and will always hurt businesses, but sites such as Bandcamp help allow labels and bands to get around that problem and meet customers halfway by offering paid or free digital downloads. I also find the internet, particularly forums and social media to be a powerful promotion tool. I would never have found even half of the music I listen to without it!
