061230 Happy new year! »
First of all we would like to thank all of you people who have put interest in our label and our artists during this fantastic year we've been in the business. We constantly receive tons of demos in the mail every week. To be honest, we never thought we would get this recognition this fast
The world is full of great music and talanted artist and speaking of talents - we are so proud over the three releases we've put out during 2006. And the buzz they have created. Not only in Scandinavia, but abroad as well. But there is more to come...
We are currently working on the next albums to be released on Alabama Records and dare we say that they are heavy. We've got some really interesting stuff coming up early next year and we are more than eager to put the pedal to the metal. If you catch our drift...
Happy new yearand see you all in 2007!
