First : 4 Unholy albums out via Peaceville records in few months. Demo - albums out via Northern Heritage / Ahdistuksen Aihio also out soon. Thats todays news-flash :)


thats was short blog-news.
things are more complicated as you might think. first there are 4(!) labels releasing Unholy/Holy Hell, Relapse recs, Peaceville recs, Ahdistuksen Aihio & Northern Heritage but ill try to explain this mess shortly.


1 Peaceville has every copyright to all full lengths, which they will release in few months.
2 Relapse is interested for t-shirts etc shit (which we will decide asap, will they do it or does NH has better offer)
3 NH´s first plan was to release all demos + 2 first full-lenghts, but as Peaceville owns now copyrights it delayed NH´s all Holy Hell/Unholy releases+ NH will also release t-shirts etc usual band merchandise(not 100% sure as theres Relapse recs also interested)
4 AA recs plan was to release all albums in cd-format + 2 last albums as gatefolds.


As avantgarde recs didnt inform us they have sold copyrights to Peaceville all plans changed, it was very close NH/AA was about to releasing everything, but then we heard Peaceville has copyrights and we had to change all plans. Otherwise there would be a copyright issue and as Peaceville is major label breaking their copyrights would be a big mess. Luckily everythings ok now, but - delayd. So please wait for few months albums will be out, and i apology this delay.

not bad. The only record I ever see from them is gracefallen, which is good don't get me wrong, but the black doom stuff is gnarly fuckin doom.

Well, Peaceville owns the album recordings, so NH can only release the demo collection. When I was still on Firebox, we tried to obtain rights for Throes of Dawn, Thergothon, Enochian Crescent titles but any deal with Peaceville would had been a joke.

Apparently Avantgarde didn't much inform the bands when they sold their old catalog. I thought that "everybody" would had known that as it was pretty public thing back in time (late 2007 or something like that).

I can completely agree about Avantgarde NOT informing bands. We have not had any communication from them in YEARS!

true. AG paid royalties for us 3(!) times since 1994, end practically we had to beg em to to pay em.
roberto shitrellas replies were "im an vacation wait a week" last and final payment was 2 years ago with 2-4 year delay. also, AG didnt reply for me at all, last e-mail i got from em was 8-10 years ago.

he replied only for ismo /unholy and also only 2-4 times/year.

for peaceville: i disagree its bad label, they have hurried up this re-relesing + they have quarterly payments

if someone didnt know peaceville bought whole catalog of AG=every single bands copyrights from AG, so at for fans of ex-AG bands this is great,as finally albums are available worlwide.

unluckily its up to peaceville will they relese every bands albums they boyght from AG but no can do,thats up to peaceville. amen :p

Some news:
As commented in myspace site, We will release all demos in vinyl during this summer. We will also release the complete Unholy history booklet, sold with vinyls. Booklet will include years 1988-2002, with fresh comments and “delicious” disclosures from original members. We promise, it’s going to be really interesting…

Peaceville Records ( http://www.peaceville.com/ ) recently bought Unholy release rights from Avantgarde Music. Negotiations to reissue all studio albums by Peaceville is going forward.

There has also been negotiations for some merchandise stuff in near future.

about third coming ie new Unholy album, rumours regarding this issue are true. However, as we live million miles away of each other it will take 1-2 years to finish new album.
It´ll be mini cd/lp so no full length coming,also no gigs.

Norhern Heritage records ( http://www.cfprod.com/nh/ ) will release all Unholy (+Holy Hell) demos as a gatefold double pic-lp´s in coming months+ "complete history of Unholy" booklet. At the moment we are finishing new layouts for Peacevilles re-issues, as Avantgardes versions were full of typos, bad scans etc .

So, patience everything´s (re-issues demo-lp´s etc) out in following months..

You mean DOOM went straight to mid-price& got dissapointed for low royalties, or DOOMs ex-label sold em without informing em?= thats why "fuck peaceville"??

thats the business today, cd´s prices are low and big labels buy out smaller labels. No can do..


Practically peaceville bought Avantgarde as they bought they catalog=copyrights to every AG-bands.

Havent followed metal-scene much since nineties as (no offence) most of nowadays metal bands just copy what has already done in late 80´s and early 90`s. Thats goes for every metal genre.

Selling cd´s things are much different than 15 years ago.
Fex our 2nd cd sold 8000-10000 copies but today its great if band sells 5000 copies (and thats for "semi-famous" bands). For UG-bands sales numbers are from few hundred to max 1000.

The first two re-released studio albums will be Gracefallen and Rapture. Everyone’s working like hell with modified cover arts…

New artworks, or only re-adjusted for the new format? I think that in their own way, these were awesome.

no worries about re-issues layouts. "modified" is wrong word, we have hired gun with perfect (american)english as our english is typical finnish-(UK)english.

he hasnt re-phrased or corrected misspellings etc of the sites but when sites are ready he will translate/re-phrase everything with perfect english. now hes translating "complete history of unholy" which is 50-70 pages long, after he has checked it, he will check sites.

sorry for blaablaaing, back to topic : biggest change is new logo. it will be be in each album (click my homepage-its same but without eagle&arrow). for "rapture" & "grace" only change will be new logo + track-list with better scans and track-list is placed in better ( diiferent) way as it is in AG´s versions.

"from.." will have also this new logo + layout will be same as it was in original lethal recs version (=so theres this larger poster too).
lyrics come with different fonts but loyal to original lethal version.
ie "from.." will be as close to lethals version as possible.

biggest change will be on "second.." as AG lost original cover-art we hired mr vuorma (he did rapture and grace) among new logo he will re-make cover-art as loyal to original as possible.

i promise you wont be dissapointed with new lay-outs!
