(Dario • ALTHEA)

"Markus is a true fan and supporter of Metal and it shows. He doesn't treat his bands as clients, but he works them like a real fan would.

"Markus Eck and METAL MESSAGE have helped us a lot over the last few months. Nice, competent and passionate!"
(Timo • TEZURA)

"To this day, my band, ROCKIN’ ENGINE, has been solicited by many public relations agencies and promoters throughout the world with their never ending sales pitch and their 'too good to be true' success stories. But one day, I met Markus Eck! We were put in contact by a common friend and radio station host in Germany and started talking like we knew each other for a long time, the connection was made immediately. Markus insisted that our first professional conversation was to be made via Skype in order to talk to a person and not just text messaging stuff, he wanted to know ME. Call me old school, but that right there told me a lot about METAL MESSAGE! Within the first five minutes of our conversation, I was amazed by Markus’s professionalism, respect, honesty, work ethics, but most importantly, his passion for metal! His passion is what struck me the most and believe me, it definitely shows in his work. Within only a few weeks, we were swarmed by album reviews, magazine interviews, air time in new radio stations, and all that throughout the world. But that’s not all! Markus also gave us very constructive advice on marketing, management, timing, presentation and work ethics, which really helped us grow as a professional band. In the end, I have recommended METAL MESSAGE to everyone who was serious about bringing their music to another level, and I will continue to do so with pride and honour!"
(Steve O Leff • ROCKIN' ENGINE)

"Extreme dedication and a transparent workstyle are what define Markus. Communication is always fast and easy. What he's done for us in under a year has exceeded our expectations by a mile. We're glad we took him and so should you."
(Maurice • BLACK LILIUM)

"There are so many charlatans in this business but Markus Eck is not one of them and METAL MESSAGE is something your band needs. The level of attention to detail as well as love put into his work is epic. I will be working with Markus again on the next Ruadh release for sure and I highly recommend you do the same. The message is indeed loud!"
(Tom • RUADH)

"Markus is a thoroughly sincere, honest and good person. A Metal maniac with all his heart and soul made of steel for the bands he is promoting. Always true to its motto: CLASS instead of MASS! Long live the underground! Many thanks to you Markus, for your great work, which we are guaranteed to use again."

"Markus is the best guy you can work with! Always focused and dedicated to his work he makes you feel like a brother - and the results of his promotional work are stellar!"

"I want to thank Markus for his great job! His skills about promotion are amazing and I'm glad we met him! Working with such a kind and positive person is a real pleasure!"
(Kremena • BENDIDA)

"METAL MESSAGE's promotional service is extremely smooth and cost-effective. In a short time, results are produced that you would not be able to do yourself with even great effort. The work is very holistic and results are generated on a daily basis. Reporting of results is also regular and the service personal. It is very difficult to imagine that the same level of service could be obtained from anywhere else, at least for the same price."

"METAL MESSAGE and Markus Eck do a really great and excellent job. It is really a pleasure to work with him."
(Vinnie • BENDIDA)

"Markus Eck does an amazing job from start to finish and is a wonderfully passionate, as well as kind guy! We're glad working with him at VARUS and already knowing him for quite some time. We already noticed more fans and a wider range soon after the first interviews and reviews were done. Thank you Markus and keep up your astonishing work! We'll always get back to, as soon as the next promo campaign or new album is about to be done."
(Konstantin • VARUS)

"As HARDLAND we may be the odd one in at METAL MESSAGE's roster, but we absolutely don’t feel like that at all! Markus got intrigued by our cover version of Tubeway Army’s 'Are Friends Electric' and although we are most certainly NOT a cover band, it did get us in contact with him. We’d also gotten great reviews about him by friends of ours (ROCKIN’ ENGINE), what made clear to us that Markus was the most ECK-cellent guy to take care of spreading the word for us! Right from the beginning, talking on the phone, we hit it off immediately. Common interests as our passion for music, LOUD music made our first conversation feel like we knew each other from way before! Markus makes no fake promises, he’s a straight shooter, NO BS! He works hard for his bands and does so with great passion, knowledge, respect, professional attitude and most important transparency and honesty! He’s helped us getting tons of interviews, reviews and airplay all around the globe. We will always recommend METAL MESSAGE to everyone who tries to get his music to a more professional level and needs advice and / or help from the MAN with a very strong MESSAGE!"
(Aeilko • HARDLAND)

"Out of all the people that work with us, Markus Eck is probably the best! He's really number one and has done so much, with incredible passion! Our intention as a band is to proceed with METAL MESSAGE again! Rock on!!!"

(Coldun • COLDUN)

"Outstanding work with serious devotion. There are lots of black sheep in the PR biz, but Markus is definitely not one of them. Relentless passion and goes for extra mile if necessary to get the things done. KING SATAN SALUTES!"
(King Seth Aleister Satan • KING SATAN)

"The cooperation with METAL MESSAGE is pretty much comparable with an Himalaya expedition on which Markus accompanies and guides your venture with Sherpa-like experience, instinct and consideration. He's not an arbitrary spreader of promotion material but a distinctive supporter of the artists vision whose motivation is always rooted in fortifying passion and authenticity. If you're looking for an enthusiastic crony and reliable connoisseur of the Metal world with all its heights and depths rather than a mere average promoter, Markus is your man. Highly recommended."
(Maurice Wilson • ANTRISCH)

"We worked with Markus for approx. six months marketing On Atlas' Shoulders second record. Highly passionate and service-oriented music enthusiast using his vast network to promote his clients. Uncomplicated and effective communication. We can definitely recommend his services!"

"The collaboration with METAL MESSAGE and my band CELTIC HILLS gave the band great visibility, much more than we had anticipated. Markus Eck works with passion and commitment and can be compared to a band member for how he is always careful to get the most out of it."
(Jonathan • CELTIC HILLS)

"There are many false prophets around but Markus isn't one of them. We, the CULT OF SALEM and our goddess Shub-Niggurath are very pleased with his excellent work."
(Dirk Whych Binder • CULT OF SALEM)

"Markus is an amazing PR agent! I have never seen someone work SO diligently and tirelessly, keeping you constantly updated with every bit of press so you know EXACTLY what is going on with your music/who is talking about it/what they are saying. He will also do his best to set up some interviews with publications WORLDWIDE! Being a band from the United States, we had always found it difficult connecting with foreign press due to language barriers, etc. Markus breaks down these walls and connects us directly to the different publications looking for interviews. He has everything set up and ready to go for you in a way that is easy to understand. Markus is VERY on top of new technology and applications, he is using any new methods he can to expand your reach in creative and exciting ways! He is also insanely organized, tweeting and posting every article you are mentioned in so you can have easy access to them as they appear! Even though Markus is not based in the United States, his English and comprehension is incredibly good! He is super easy to talk to and it feels like he is available 24 hours a day!!! This guy WORKS HARD and it shows. By far one of the hardest working people in music I have had the pleasure of working with. Would recommend EVERYONE selects him to do your worldwide PR, whether you are from the USA or literally anywhere else! Markus knows where to place you and how to get you there."

"KATRE worked together with Markus Eck in the dissemination of the album 'Behind The Resilience' and absolutely recommends the services of METAL MESSAGE Global. Markus understands your needs as an artist and details a plan to work out tailored for the band. He has a large database of bloggers and webzines, and you are most likely going to be asked for many interviews. This helps a lot in the beginning because as an artist, you need the feeling of recognition. After this, the reviews, social media posts, and similar will follow, because Markus gives his best to disseminate your work. Our warmest thanks to you, Markus. We now have a very dear friend on our side who understands our music and communicates with the right audience."
