Ladies and Gentlemen – It is revealed! CORE IN CHINA was included in issue number 48 of the Painkiller Heavy Music Magazine as CD!!!
We are very proud that our project attracted so much attention not just overseas, but also in China itself, so that the guys of Painkiller decided to include the CD as free gimnick in their magazine to be distributed nation-wide!!!
For those who haven’t listened to the CD yet, get a free download copy here!
Same as the band EVILTHORN in the photo above, we are currently applying the last corpse paint on CORE IN CHINA. What does that mean?
Well, except having ended the official submission deadline, we have finalized the band and song selection for CORE IN CHINA. We have chosen 20 outstanding songs from all over China to be part of the compilation representing the new Chinese Metal underground on a global scale. And when we say represent on a global scale, then we mean global scale, because we are not lazy, but have started talking to magazines and webzines in Germany, South America, France, the USA, India and a couple of other countries whether they would like to review or feature the compilation. Unsurprisingly the feedback so far is very open-minded and we expected to be able to send out download links to most of our contacts.
If you have any contacts or friends or know someone that we should contact and forward the compilation (once it’s finished), tell us! Either send us an email to AZCHAEL AT ROCKINCHINA DOT COM or just post your comments here! We love to hear from you!
By the way, the photo is from a metal concert way back in 2008 in Beijing.
Today is March 15th 2012 and today is the last day for submission of songs for the CORE IN CHINA project. Hereby the submission is closed and we are very thankful for your songs! Over 20 bands from all over China have participated and send us their musical creations.
From now on Rock in China is coordinating with all bands to fix the band biographies, interviews (if not already happened), song lyrics and final version of the songs (good quality mp3). Everything considered, May 2012 is only one-and-a-half months away and there is a lot to be done! Let’s do it!
Note: Above photo is from the band Mary Dolls.
The last two to three weeks have seen further responses to the CORE IN CHINA project with especially Beijing and Hongkong bands answering to our call. Several bands have promised us to record a new version of a previously demo-released song and we hope to gather a number of songs next week.
For anybody out there still havent heard about the project or coming accross it right now, read this and send us your song!
