It lasts pretty long to release such works filled with very own ideals.

Apart from the music itself, I always liked the beautiful and detailed front cover arts and I'm still totally fascinated by the graphical representations of many releases in Metal.

It oftentimes happened that I bought records only because of the cover, though the music did not please me that good. That's pretty crazy, but that's what an addict collector does.

That's why I think it's a shame that some genius cover artists, unlike the bands, did not get known accordingly.

One day I came up with the enthusiastic and richly inspired idea of ​​putting together compilations myself.

The overall concept of the series should be an opportunity for bands as well as for cover artists to get more attention.

That's why I always work very closely with the graphic artists who design the respective front cover according to my ideas.

After the realization of a new sampler I always send a lot of promo about it to countless media - and I never get tired of telling them that they should please write something about the cover artist involved as well!

There have been released really not less of underground compilations these past years, and so many of them all unfortunately were done without real heartblood & therefore with a very low degree of passion – especially in this unique musical genre, called Heavy Metal!

The Metal Message ᴳᴸᴼᴮᴬᴸ compilations on the other hand are created with a real massive dose of strong enthusiasm. I did them with my deepest dedication for the arts of the chosen participants and for the contributing cover artists.

For some of you it’s just music, simply just a specific period of your life. But for a small und rare amount of the other ones of us Heavy Metal means a unique way of life - bounded to an endless loving view on honest art.

Enjoy all the harsh beating rhythms, furious guitar-attacks & beautiful tunes – & stay mainly true to yourself!
