Black metallers Woe offer up album
US black metal band Woe are offering their album "A Spell For The Death of Man" on a Radiohead-style 'pay-what-you-want' plan. Corpse paint is expensive so there's a saving to be made there I reckon.
"Woe is not a marketing scheme or career path. It is not something we do to get famous, get girls, get friends, get sponsorships, or look cool. (A good thing, too, since it has not and cannot do any of those things!) The amount of time, energy, and personal money poured into this project for no reason other than passion for the art is staggering and, as time goes on, will continue and increase. Below, a dollar amount of your choice can be entered and, when the process is complete, you will start the download of a zip file (approx 102MB) containing the complete "A Spell for the Death of Man" album in MP3 (320kbps) format along with the CD insert and lyrics. It is DRM-free so you can do with it as you please.
Just like every dollar that comes in from sold items and shows, this money will also go DIRECTLY to recording, merchandise, and travel expenses. While we do not mind if anyone shares our music, we would greatly appreciate it if you would direct those interested in downloading the album to this page. The CD version is still available from this site and www.strongholdrecords.net.
WOE have been attracting significant amounts of attention, gaining ravenous new fans with their debut full-length, "A Spell for the Death of Man", which was released in 2008 by Stronghold Records, and sharing stages with the likes of Profanatica, Nachtmystium, and Withered.
