What is this project all about?
It's about the CD- & Vinyl-pressing of our new double album "By Endurance We Conquer - Demons & Damnation" which is going to be released for GumoManiacs' 10th anniversary in autumn/winter 2017.
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
As professional musicians and passionate Metal enthusiasts, we want to create a first-class highest-quality piece of art in form of a musical product, which, on CD as on LP, will be supplied to like-minded metalheads, (audiophile) music lovers, and musicians.
Why would you support this project?
We prefer the support by fans of our genre (Thrash Metal) over
the forced and mainly financially oriented support by
representatives of the music industry:
- metalheads get a full load of Thrash Metal (20 songs on 2 LPs/2 CDs)
- (audiophile) music lovers enjoy the highest-quality production and CD/LP pressing (Anti-Loudness War Mastering)
- musicians will experience outstanding songwriting, arrangement, and real instrumental craft
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
The CD/LP pressing of “By Endurance We Conquer - Demons &
Damnation” will take place in summer 2017 and the perks will be
sent out to the supporters shortly before the official release in
All the money (minus Startnext platform fees and shipping) is 100% used for the pressing costs and it won't be eaten up by the bureaucracy of certain record labels and managers.
In case of over-funding, we'll spend everything over 5000€ in promotion and marketing of the album and/or even more exclusive pressings!
