This going to be the random things that go on well running my label. As well as what release I am currently doing and stuff.
As some of you might remember in Oct. I posted about going over $1,000.
Well in two months I doubled that and am now over $2,200.
So everything is going good which is really amazing seeing as 90% of my sales are physical media and mostly cassettes.
Hopefully what I have currently planned will push my label even further. And maybe even to the point where i can live off it (Which would be a dream come true).
Anyways might as well show off some upcoming release.
Our next CD/Cassette release:
Adora Vivos - Toward the Empyrean. a five track EP from one of the top doom metal bands from Minnesota.
Devouring Star - Demo. A Two track demo from this Finland black/death metal band will be released on cassette.
and as a growing label there is always more news to come.

I currently have this contest running
Due to a math error we got an extra batch(100) of 17 min cassettes (Smokey Tint). *pictured below*
So we have decided to run a contest for two 50 copy cassette releases.
So if you are interested in have your/your bands music released on tape here is your chance.
All you have to do is have a release/set of song(s) under 17 minutes and post below or send us a PM.
You will be entered.
You have till the 31st of March to enter.
When we will compile all the bands that have entered and put up a public poll.
The two bands with the most votes will be awarded a free 50 copy cassette release.
All metal, Hardcore/Punk, and Ambient/Noise Bands/projects excepted
Link to original post:

Can you please explain why you are producing cassettes in 2013?
I found a cassette duplicator for $20. So I decided to run with it.
I'm curious as to who's still manufacturing them. Is it even still possible to buy cassette walkmans?
Congrats on the sales though. That's pretty awesome.
There are a few places but the best and most used is National Audio Company.
As far as I know Sony still makes them. (at least that is what wikipedia says)
I'm now 20 and have $200 more dollars to show for it.
