..Bootleggers Continued.

...oh and I really hate to bring this up by like with my record on the old Great White North Records...the same thing happened to the band "Ade" from Italy(?) I don't know, on Blast Head Records which was an associated label of PRC, the same people.

The Ade album came out and was in the Century Media Catalog for two minutes and then Blast Head Records closed and some other label bought all their stock I'm just assuming they pulled it off the distro to bootleg or something, whatever.

Just A Quick Note About Heavy Metal Bootleggers etc.

I can't talk long on here because it's Memorial Cup Week in Halifax and I'm super busy, if you don't see me down at the game I'm watching the whole thing on Internet Stream. It turns out I am super busy and couldn't make it to all that, but I might be down there at some point this week.

If you don't know yet we're in the middle of setting up www.deathmetal.tv which is a Heavy Metal YouTube Channel we are making specifically for running on Blu Ray Players and Smart TV's, like a music television stream with metal updates etc. in it, like Netflix only it's for Heavy Metal on the Blu Ray and SmartTV YouTube app.

We are doing this on our own, this isn't backed by YouTube or anything but it's an internet tv music channel on the YouTube app. Hopefully it will go somewhere, for now it's probably just us on there watching it since people might not have those compatible devices yet, you can also watch it directly on YouTube on your computer for music playlists etc. 

This is still the early days of that and we're probably the only one on there. All that doesn't matter anyway, I like watching it. 

Here is the update on bootleggers in summary and it's approximate and I'm trying not to reveal personal information. 

It turns out that the original Great White North Records defaulted to me I am being told as I was a direct investor in the label by backing them with my record and my promotions which led to us getting concerts from tons of bands that are now on BMG etc, that all closed when Great White North stopped, in the middle of the promotion they abandoned the label.

That was when it just hit the major music distros like Century Media, Sonic Unyon etc. and places like Metal Hammer Magazine.

So when they closed and took off that cancelled the promotion to get the albums in Metal Hammer that I was working on by promoting Collapse and working as an investor in the label to help them get on Century Media distribution at the time and in Magazines like Metal Hammer with my record and money, outside of them here in Halifax, through places like CD Plus, HMV etc. what was happening.

I spent several years putting the record together and owned studio equipment etc. and spent thousands of dollars to record and put my first two records out. Great White North Records tried to cancel my investment of thousands of dollars out of my pocket and release the record for six weeks only and then scrap their label then they tried to cancel my record and waste my investment of thousands of dollars of recording equipment, music gear, concert promotions etc. and walk out with my album.

Then they tried to say I didn't own the record after I spent all that money on it and helped to promote it into places like Metal Hammer Magazine which it didn't get to before they closed. 

Right so, they can't do that...that are not allowed to walk out on my investments in the record label and make me waste my money, then they abandoned it and their label was never transferred it to me with the album catalog because they took off.

That means they are in default to my recording studio and promotions to get the album released on major distribution in stores like CD Plus etc. which is where it was going, meaning I own their album catalog anyway.

They tied to say that all my money and promotions with concerts that I put into that label didn't matter and they tried to cancel my money I put into it and walk out in six weeks after it's release and ruin my investments, that is not allowed so I own their records as an investor. 

Also, I kept the promotion running from Great White North Records for the last 11 years by holding on to my album and reissuing it on my own label Forward Regression, so my record was sill open but I never got the rest of their catalog as payment from my "contract". 

So my album promotion from my investment never closed, then they owed me their catalog as payment for abandoning the promotion for The End Records (BMG), Sonic Unyon, Century Media Distribution (Sony)  and magazines like Metal Hammer. 

Today they are closed and there is no one to contact so I own it alone at Forward Regression but I haven't had the rights transferred to me yet to print the catalog.

In fact, I can print the catalog anyway right now because if anyone tried to sue me for pressing the albums they would not win in court because of the above facts. So if I ran off their catalog, I would successfully be able to defend pressing it in court because I was invested in the company and they tried to ruin my investments.

However, that is NOT the correct procedure...to avoid lawsuits I am transferring the rights to the catalog to me FIRST then pressing it so their can be no outside challenge of my ownership of the Great White North Records catalog and Prodisk Music.

In fact, I have been getting a lot of demos of atmospheric Death Metal and Black Metal at Forward Regression that don't fit on my label, so I may re-open Great White North Records as a sublabel on Forward Regression to release to albums on Great White North Records.  

I could do that right now anyway for new albums, but I want to print the old back catalog as well. If  you interested in being signed to Great White North Records in the future when I reopen it send your demo to label@banzairecords.com and then you will be on the list of band submissions.

If you can't get on Forward Regression you might be able to get signed to the sub label Great White North Records later, that is the same distribution and on the same promotion but is a separate label. That will take some time to put together.

I just want all the albums in one place the new ones and the old ones, but I can still print new albums under the same name. 

If you demo is accepted we will inform you that it is for the new Great White North Records when it launches. 

The bootleggers did this, they tried to cancel albums on their way to Metal Hammer magazine similar to what happened with mine and then scrap their label deal. Then they tried to sell them as bootlegs under the table at shows and stuff small out of places like Metal Hammer magazine behind the bands back and rip them all off but they got caught.

They tried to steal larger artists by bootlegging them by closing their label before it hit the major distros, stores and magazines and bootleg them under the counter and at concerts to steal the bands money with no promotion or store distribution, that is also partially what happened to me meaning I don't know the whole story yet.

If you look on the internet they are the ones selling all those "unauthorized" metal albums, then they tried to steal real ones off the distro and magazines and they all got caught.

Stay tuned and thanks for your demo submissions.

Lawsuits Getting Resolved And New Stuff On The Way

Well this is pretty big to me for resolving multiple lawsuits in my favor. Basically the flaming and harassment of me plus theft and fraud all over the place from the thing at my old office is leading to this.

I own the Great White North Records and Prodisk album catalogs, however I can't print them yet. What is happening is later I am getting lawyers to file copyrights on their catalogs and logos etc. because of my court case, then I will own them and be able to print Great White North Records albums at Forward Regression, on the Great White North Records name with logos, excluding The End Records and Sonic Unyon logos which will be replaced by my logo.

Right so those label people lost all those album catalogs to me and they didn't owe the bands any money, which I will own 100% with no royalty payments to bands in my settlement which is what is happening.

In my settlement I will not have to pay anything to the artists that used to be on GWN or Prodisk and will own the albums 100% after the Copyrights get filed and then I will be able to print them.

It also gets better than this, I am also suing anyone pressing albums which featured the Original Banzai Records logo, this one:




So if an album was originally printed on Banzai Records with the original logo and then repressed OFF a major label I am suing them because I don't believe they are a real company. What I think is that they are bootleggers and I am looking for the people pressing Collapse bootlegs.

For example, Aggression - The Full Treatment was released on the original Banzai Records and Great White North Records,  I own the name Banzai Records www.banzairecords.com and I own the Great White North Catalog so I own the album on Banzai Records.

When I reissue Aggression - The Full Treatment on Forward Regression Records I own 100% of the money and I am paying no royalties after the material is copyrighted.

When I reissue Aggression - The Full Treatment I am putting the Original Banzai Records logo on it which I will also own. When that happens the original Banzai Records Logo will be my registered trademark on Forward Regression.

That means I own the original logo right now anyway duh because of all that, but I am not using it on any products until I register all the copyrights and trademarks and have their approvals.

So it is the same for now, I'm not using any of that until my reissues get processed by the copyright office and they give me the 100% green light, before that I am not issuing anything.

In the same situation with other labels over issues like harassment, plagiarism and copyright infringement I am also going to own their album catalogs which I will have to copyright with lawyers myself before I press the albums.

I don't know what catalogs they will be yet because I do not have a full list yet. That is the same thing as my Sobeys lawsuit and it's similar involved parties.

Like this, if anyone uses the Banzai Records original logo or presses an album that was originally issued with that logo I am suing them to see if they are a real business or bootleggers, that's because if they are pressing those albums they may be pressing Collapse albums and flaming me so I am suing them to find out, plus they are only doing small runs and I don't believe they are a real business.

This is not all albums that were on Banzai because some artists like Metallica and Slayer kept all their material on a major label, other's were not reissued and then used by bootleggers who flamed me and bootlegged my Collapse albums. 

I don't know what albums they are yet and will have to wait to find out. Even if after the band was dropped by Polygram and signed to a small label off the original Banzai Records the deal may not be valid because the company was actually bootleggers, and they lost all their albums to me through my lawsuit, meaning I would own the reissue. 

Also, companies like Sony and BMG Rights Management bought a bunch of that stuff or won it in a settlement and I may own a piece of those albums as well in my court case. That is the easy part, they just owe me a cut of those records or I may get the full rights to them someday.

I'm not in an argument with those labels it's just a friendly court settlement over my personal damages against the previous party. 

Albums like this:

Celtic Frost - Tragic Serenades EP
Raven - Live At The Inferno
Infernal Majesty - None Shall Defy
Racer X - Street Lethal
Cryptic Slaughter - Convicted
D├ętente - Recognize No Authority 
Iron Angel - Hellish Crossfire
Abattoir - Vicious Attack
Exciter - Long Live The Loud
Jaguar - Power Games
Sortilege - Metamorphose
Warfare - Pure Filth
Tyrant - Legions Of The Dead

All those albums originally had the Banzai Records logo on it, if they were repressed on a small label after Polygram dropped them I am suing those record labels because I believe they are bootlegging and not real businesses and I am looking for Collapse bootlegs.

Again, if you use the original Banzai Records logo or issue albums like the list above I am suing you to recover my Collapse bootlegs etc. and then I will also own the above list, or something like that, even if they were reissued by the band because the bootleg label lost the albums to me etc. like that.

The actual album list is to be determined, when I file the copyrights for the albums. In the mean time I have a claim on those records in court but nothing will actually be pressed until it is approved by the Copyright and Trademark Office by my lawyers.

After that I am doing official reissues of the albums like listed above on Forward Regression Records and I am putting the original Banzai Records logo back on them on Compact Disc, that's after the copyrights are in my name and finalized through their office.

I don't know how long that will take,and I don't officially own any of that yet, but I am working hard at it.

Life Discovered On Other Planets And Evolution Explained

A Black Hole Gives Birth To Life In The Universe
This is original research by myself plus traditional science etc. I'm not in a lab though it's observation and analysis only.

Not only are black holes in the news so is evolution, what perfect timing I thought because I was just saying not that long ago on this blog that there are no modern day examples of evolution and science went out and found one.

Bird Goes Extinct and Then Evolution Brings It Back


My first thought on that is that this is just the same bird anyway and it was hiding it the artic circle or somewhere like the Dodo Bird is and you just can't see them.

Well this story if the bird came back that is probably through interspecies cross breeding, making it some kind of Donkey like animal. 

Like I said, If I was wrong I would corrected myself because of my new information on Evolution, which now has to be corrected however I'm saying Darwin is wrong in his version and that humans are much older than they are saying and that the dates are wrong, plus they used the theory of evolution in a scam in the 1800's with the Royalty destroying their creditability. 

So there are several topics here, many years ago there may have been "proto humans" like other human species living next to us for example. Humans might have come from the cross breeding of proto humans like the donkey giving birth to us, regular humans.

In the fossil record the other early human like creatures, proto humans, may have lived next to us and went extinct. Similarly, like today, aboriginal tribes disconnected from society who can't talk and are cannibals etc. and living on secluded islands may in fact be these non intelligent proto humans, as we continue into the future they will probably go extinct, before they go extinct maybe they should go get a sample to study in the lab to see what their issue is, maybe they can learn from these human like people if they are determined unintelligent, like animals, and see if that's what they are.

It's my opinion that they should not be hiding in there anyway killing and eating each other and need to be stopped anyway and forced into regular society, when that happens we will find out if they are unintelligent proto humans or not, or leave them alone...that is not up to me anyway.

If I have to pick a main point in evolution it's actually the development of modern human intelligence when they began keeping records etc. and making society's that's recorded history.

I think that humans lived long before that like the myth of Atlantis which was apparently lost and the world fell into an unintelligent state where they lost records, plate shifting and massive global ice ages where those humans probably hide was in tropical regions during ice ages where they were probably of lower intelligence.

Like the cycles of the planet and universe like ice ages and plate shifting I believe that humans may go through a cycle of intelligence that rises and decreases depending on the background of the planet. Intelligence would be high during warm periods like on Atlantis creating super human like intelligence and science and then lower during ice age periods where we lived in the tropical regions during ice ages and plate shifting events. 

My theory is that humans may be a permanent part of the Earth since we are the main species and that Earth is probably a human planet anyway, with plant and animal subcultures. 

Two questions remain, when did we evolve to the point of actual human intelligence and when was that?

The reason I have my new updated theory is because of the discovery of the pictures of the inside of black holes or whatever is visible.

All material being ejected from black holes is "recycled" planetary material which is then used by galaxies to create planets and solar systems in a cycle the endlessly repeats itself, making the universe much older than even expected which would not be accounted for by science because we can not date the galaxy yet before it was destroyed in the past and recycled.

So the modern record of the galaxy would only be from the recreation of the solar system only and not before that from ejected black hole material.

Evolution therefore has to be true because when the planet formed it came from the black hole material of destroyed galaxies and when the Earth was made there was obviously no life on it yet because it was just formed out of the new material.

This material that came out of black holes from the center of the Galaxy contained life giving material samples that were trapped inside the Earth at it's formation with the building blocks of humans in it which we grew out of.

Therefore because of the black hole discovery life has to exist on other planets because the black hole material with live giving samples has to be locked in other planets right now when they formed, that's what scientists should be looking for.

In fact you can prove this for a fact because the materials that collected at the Earth would have also been distributed throughout the galaxy and been collected by other planets where they remain today.

What I believe is that the position of the Earth in the galaxy is set in some kind of "band" like a gravitational force that collected life giving materials at a certain degree or radius in the solar system. This is why scientists look for Earth like planets for life in outer space in a similar gravitational band around a star. 

However, there is no evidence that the size of the planet or it's position determines the gravitational band in the solar system and that life may be able to exist on any size planet potentially in similar gravitational bands as the Earth which is what they should look for.

That would be gravitational bands that are "life material collecting" from matter being ejected from black holes. So as you can tell the Universe is not only infinite outwards it is infinite backwards in time and endlessly recycles itself from black holes destroying and rebuilding itself and always contains life material leading to the obvious conclusion that there has to be life or was life on other planets or at least life building materials.

The point of evolution of the Earth were humans were created would have probably been in the first  Oceans on the early Earth. I believe in the early days of the planet that it was completely covered in water and there land and continents formed later. At the time would be where most of human evolution began when the life giving materials first mixed and through interspecies breeding new creatures formed that eventually came on the land when it came out of the ocean and then they became humans and at some point intelligent.

For example, proto humans could be the cousins of humans on a different evolutionary path at the same time and we remained and they went extinct. I believe that this time period of the planet happened super fast in the new planet which would have been raw and with super heated oceans leading to a chain reaction of evolution and birth of new species.

Today, evolution would probably only be from interspecies breeding which is rare I think but could happen, in the future this "effect" could in fact turn back on by nature and make species cross breed to create new life forms that would continue, the old ones may also go extinct after the fact and be lost in the archaeological record. Why there ae no human skeletons or fossils found is because the human body and skeleton are too delicate and disappear to quickly to remain in the fossil record. 

At some point all that had to happen, they came up on the new land which would be the real planet as soon as it formed probably and grass grew and then became humans pretty quickly. 

You have to remember that the materials that made humans and their bodies also need the planets atmosphere, food, trees etc. to be sustainable. All those materials would have collected at the Earth from the black hole making this a human planet from the beginning. 

So the point of the planet is that it collected material that made it a human planet with super intelligent creatures on it...us. I think that the physical appearance of people may have come from the materials that made nature like the air, water and trees and that we are a product of those materials and need them to breathe and eat and that it is permanently locked in that cycle.

During the formation of the planet the creatures in the ocean would have been in an embryo state and the ocean acting as the embryo or placenta while the physical land, air and plants developed separate for us and then later when the land and all materials were complete they locked giving birth to todays planet when everything came up on land.

What I find most exciting about the new discovery of black holes is that if that material could be harnessed and we collected a sample, it might be able to be dumped into another planet like Mars to terraform it and force it to begin growing as a human like planet. That's if the gravitational band could support that and if not, other materials from black holes could be collected to adjust it and make it work in a different gravitational band, once it took off it would become an Earth like planet and possibly be sustainable for humans or even grow them on it's own.

That would work anywhere in the universe.

I also believe that the current cycle of the Universe is in it's infancy or just beginning and that humans are alone, materials on other planets may not have formed other humans or intelligent creatures at all or it is too early in the Universe for that to happen.

Likewise, it may be up to us to find these materials and planets and to terraform them and colonize outer space ourselves once we find the means, then we will be the humans on the other planets by terraforming them by ourselves when we achieve the means, at some point we will all be destroyed and recycled by the Universe and our materials used to create other planets and life forms. 

Finally, black holes contain the materials to grow life itself and have the power if harnessed to regrow human limbs and the human body. If properly harnesses this material may even have the means of life extension technology where we could extend our lives as humans for hundreds or thousands of years.

In fact, we could permanently preserve the Earth and ourselves by dumping these materials form black holes back into the Planet to continuously regrow the planet and our bodies which would then exist in a state of permeant preservation and we would never die.

What scientists should be looking for in outer space is planets with Oceans to find the "infancy state" on other planets so we can examine the "placenta" of the planet and possibly collect samples.

Mother's Day: Things You Crave When You Are Pregnant

Before women become mother's first they have to get pregnant which is a long and uninteresting process of romantic dinners and a large workload for most men who can barely bring themselves to participate in, that's why it take a great Dad to be a father.

If you're young what you need to know about that is that it take's a great man with plenty of time, patience and a stable income to impregnate a woman properly with knowledge of many topics like entrainment, dinners and other various grooming activities. 

Way too much work for most "rock music" type people like myself who fell off that workload years ago, maybe that was just nature and my job is now complete. 

When a women finally does become pregnant after years of hard work by a man who has some basic understanding of what the woman is talking about and is able to meet those demands during her pregnancy she experiences things like "food cravings", meaning she has to eat all these strong tasting food combinations for some reason which I will now explain.

Common cravings during pregnancy include:
  • Spicy Food
  • Chocolate
  • Ice Cream
  • Meat
  • Peanut Butter
  • Pickles
So what is all that about anyway?  Well my research has shown that the cravings are caused by the baby eating the nutrients in the womb through their embryo. Like pickles, that's actually the baby being hungry and apparently they are all addicted to pickles when their are in their mothers stomach.

The baby inside the mothers womb can not eat food directly, however the baby "absorbs" the chemical content of the food eaten by it's mother that's called nutrients.

Like in all humans, after the mother eats food the chemicals of the food are extracted by the human body and processed. What comes out is nutrients, like from pickles. The baby eats the chemical nutrients in the womb from the mother of the food she eats. Baby's in the womb enjoy eating spicy foods, cholate, ice cream, hamburgers, steaks, peanut butter and jam etc. just like all regular kids.

Only unborn baby's are still inside their mother so they have to make the mother crave the items of the food they want to eat so they can enjoy the chemical nutrients of the food so they can grow be born and become a regular kid, at that time they can go to McDonalds themselves, probably with supervision, and then eat their own hamburgers, pickles and  ice cream.

Big Boobs In Bikini!


I'm Just Getting Up This Morning To Check On Sobeys Unregulated News Stories

Uh, yea I'm Sobeys - www.sobeys.info
Sobeys to add 3000 ecommerce jobs in Quebec and Ontario, oh that's gonna save Canada I'm sure.


Federal and SEC regulators will probably make sure to get their cut paycheck from Sobeys in Ottawa for their new job at their ecommerce desk selling door to door meat just like Bill Sobey's Grandfather in my home town.

Yes the days are back, The Sobeys got the old meat wagon back out on a new website on the internet and bringing meat to your house again this time with a new ecommerce website, yeah no thanks you already came to my house once and tried to rip me off I don't think I'll be needing your grocery delivery service.

Who are all those people you're hiring anyway? That's all the people they get to work for cut wages and lead them around on a string like they said to me when I worked there, all while running unregulated on the Stock Market with no Government in Canada.

They should change the name of the Parliament to Sobeys, and just get SEC regulators to be their front desk secretary since they think they are so prominent in Canada.

Well if there's no Government anymore and they're all running unregulated with no interference against Canada's Constitution then I guess it's up to the public to go down there and resolve it.

I'm sure their not worried that the world hates them, they got a guy in Ottawa that says they get to stay open anyway, and no the SEC doesn't take complaints anymore so that's all over now. I just say don't go there.

Then I was sitting around enjoying a free society last night and I found the protentional ponzi scheme at Sobeys, that's like an illegal reinvestment scam.

So they take the money from their suppliers and hold payments for weeks to open new stores and now they have a new ecommerce website in an effort to raise money for some reason, I'm not sure why they need it anyway, they are unregulated after all.

Now those new jobs are being paid for out of the ponzi scam, no those wages are supplier money. The point there is you can't have all that going at the same time in a "company" like that. So it's illegal probably. I'll just leave a little bit of doubt there since I don't know the whole story.

Oh right the ponzi scam....so they take the suppliers stock and then don't pay them back....then they DISCOUNT the unpaid for inventory in a sell off to close their competitors with unpaid for food and inventory items.

Then later they'll be in a mad rush to make payments on it while in insolvency.

So the unpaid for stock buys the new stores, employees and ecommerce website.

Then they take the unpaid for stock and discount it in a sell off to get new customers to go there by selling it clearance by undercutting the wholesale price, that's to steal competitors customers.

Then they will try and keep the customers and make small deposits on the late inventory payments, that's classic insolvency and bankruptcy protection people. Cough, cough Neverland Ranch.

Yeah Freshco, that's gonna be big.

Anyway, that's all unregulated with no oversight. That is the worst company in the world. Visit my Sobeys Company Watchdog page at www.sobeys.info , plus be sure to check out my music if you have time...but don't try and steal my office work because I have a Corporate watchdog page now and I'd rat you out to the Government but since that's not there, I'll just tell all your neighbours about it.

Saddam Hussein: The Road To 9/11

Saddam Hussein: The Road To September 11th
Tracing the origins of todays Constitutional rights violations by fraudulent business people and political leaders takes us back to the early 1900's coming out of a time period of the United States Civil War ending in 1865 and the Foundation of  the Union of Canada in 1867. 

Later by the early 1900's that was the background of an unstable political system born out the chaos of the United States Civil War and their resolutions at the time to hold the United States together and solidify Canada with a new union in 1867 to overcome the turmoil of the American Civil War period.

Corrupt political systems, government officials and business men set up fake government branches in the United States and Canada out of this turmoil leaving us with a Constructional system full of holes and corruption susceptible to outside influence from overseas forces in Europe, The Middle East and Africa.

World War One, World War Two, Korea, Vietnam and numerous wars in the Balkans and the Middle East plagued the newly established United States and Canada after the American Civil War but in the end we prevailed eliminating all outside threats and wars from Canada and the United States leading to stability in todays society as we approach the year 2020 in the future of Planet Earth.

However, numerous holes and voids still remain in Canada and the United States today which are plainly visible in the public for a new generation of youth and University Graduates to resolve on our own with no parents as we arose out of the broken families of the war ridden 1900's  to reclaim the Earth for our future generations. 

This is why today we can not allow these unchecked government organizations operating in small holes in our constitution from the Balkans, Africa and the Middle East to continue as they try to bring us into the sink hole of the 1900's and drag us into an African like war ridden society. 

In fact, the many wars of the 1900's are all connected in ways and today I would like to show you all about Saddam Hussein and his role in these post American Civil War conflicts in the last third of the 1900's. This will help you to understand why Iraq and Saddam Hussein are guilty of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York City. 

To understand this I will simplify the conflicts that lead to the 9/11 terrorist attacks from the Middle East and Africa beginning in the 1960's in Iraq during the Vietnam War with the United States. This material again I have to summarize and it is approximate as it will take several books to compile which hopefully someday I will be able to complete if I have the time. 

You have to remember that during the rise of Saddam Hussein the United States was at war with Vietnam and not involved directly or at least that's not prevalent in the public record as they were occupied in Vietnam.

Saddam Hussein rose to power after the Iraq Revolution in the late 1950's as a member of his new political party, the new President of Iraq after the revolution was Abd al-Karim Qasim who became President of Iraq when they overthrew the old Iraq Monarchy. 

Later Saddam Hussein's Political Party the (Ba'ath  Party) opposed things like a United Arab League in North Africa, now I may have this wrong but it's something like this, by the Iraq President seemed to be siding with this new Arab Political Movement.  

During the Presidency of Abd al-Karim Qasim turmoil gripped Iraq and Saddam Hussein who was in power at the time but not the President attempted to assassinate him with his fellow members of the Ba'ath Party which failed, later he was executed and a new President was sworn in during the 1970's, Saddam Hussein was Vice President at that time and formally took power as President in Iraq in 1979 shortly after the end of the Vietnam War.


Thus began the road to 9/11 and the terror attacks on New York City in 2001.


After Saddam Hussein took power in Iraq he invaded the neighbouring Country of Iran in 1980 in a war that lasted until 1988. That was the Iraq-Iran war, and Saddam's quest to annex pieces of Iran's Oil fields which still remain part of Iraq today.

The whole point of the Iraq-Iran war was Saddam Hussein was successfully able to annex a small section of Iran's oil fields in Western Iran and he won the conflict and gained control of a region of their oil fields.

During this time Iran seized a piece of Iraq in the Kurdish region which led to Saddam Hussein using Chemical Weapons to gas his own citizens to death to eliminate the threat of the Iran takeover of the region, later he was convicted of war crimes for the attack inside his own Country. 

Also during this time was the breakup of Yugoslavia by 1990 which lead to war crimes charges against Political Leaders in the region, that is known as The Balkan Region or the traditional Second World Countries. During the Iraq-Iran war the Balkans in Yugoslavia was also in a state of corruption and turmoil which lead to it's dissolution.

After the success of Saddam Hussein's victory in Iraq over Iran and the annexation of part of their oil fields Saddam invaded Kuwait in 1990 which is a region in Saudi Arabia to size their oil fields after his success in Iran. Saddam Hussein in the past was against the Arab League in North Africa and defied the United Sates in his invasion who were allies with Saudi Arabia.

The result was Gulf War One which took place during the same time as the break up of Yugoslavia and the reformation of the Balkans which lead to the Genocide in Bosnia by Slobodan Milosevic who was President of Serbia in the Balkans during the time of Gulf War One. Slobodan Milosevic was later arrested and convicted of war crimes for the genocide in Bosnia.

The United States intervened on Saddam Hussein in Kuwait under the late President George Bush Senior who was a United States World War Two hero and he recruited General Norman Schwarzkopf to liberate the region which he did in Operation Desert Storm in the early 1990's.

However the United States made a crucial mistake in Gulf War One, they Liberated Kuwait but did not invade Iraq letting Saddam Hussein to continue to remain President of Iraq which was a Dictatorship at the time and known as a terrorist state and one of the sanctuaries of Osama Bin Laden and the Al Qaeda terrorist group.

Osama Bin Laden who came from a wealthy family in Saudi Arabia who ran a construction business in the Middle East was Anti-American and had attacked United States interests through out the Middle East region during that time. 

It is believed that Saddam Hussein was harbouring terrorists in his dictatorship at the time including Al Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden and that Saddam Hussein let Osama Bin Laden carry out the attacks from his country of Iraq for retaliation of the United Sates invasion of Kuwait in Gulf War One and his defeat.

That led to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York City by Osama Bin Laden potentially from unstable Countries like Iraq who wanted revenge on the United States over their invasion of Kuwait in the early 1990's when they liberated the region. 

That is why Saddam Hussein is responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attacks because of his invasions of Iran and Kuwait and the harbouring of terrorist groups plus his quest for revenge on the United States over his defeat in Kuwait.

After the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks which were ten years to the date of President George Bush Senior's famous New World Order Speech on September 11, 1991 which he proclaimed a New World Order would be put in place from the United States to bring peace to Planet Earth is probably why they chose September 11, 2001 as the attack date from the Middle East - today our generation is New World Order bringing peace to Planet Earth just as George Bush Senior promised the world in 1991.

At the time of the September 11,2001 terrorist attacks we were under President George Bush Jr, in the United States who is the second best United States President next to the current president Donald Trump.

George Bush Junior, making up for the mistakes of his father in Gulf War One invaded Iraq immediately to quell the threat of Saddam Hussein in Operation Iraqi Freedom which he was successful in and destroyed the regime of Saddam Hussein and he was executed bringing a more stable Government to today's Iraq. 

Not only was George Bush Junior successfully able to capture Saddam Hussein and destroy his regime and execute him he also caught Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan later and also had him killed by United States Soldiers by entering Pakistan upon hearing of his location and killing him with machine guns as soon as they found him making him the Second Greatest United States President ever. 

They also executed Slobodan Milosevic in 2006 for his War Crimes and genocide in Bosnia at the time of Gulf War One bringing an end to this reign of terror in the Middle East and The Balkans.

That is why today in Canada and the United States we can not allow these groups from Countries in the Balkans, The Middle East and Africa to operate in these small holes in our Constitution created by the turmoil of the 1900's because they are also guilty in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks just like Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden as well as people like Slobodan Milosevic. 

So when you hear things about disconnected government branches overthrowing our laws in Canada and the United States form these terrorist regions in the Second and Third World and stealing from our stock markets with no regulation you have to remember that this is also the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York City and those companies and politicians are also guilty just like Saddam Hussein.

Today's generation must unite to stop these terrible people form continuing their backwards 1900's lifestyle and attacks on us from these corrupt terrorist states.

NEWS: Sobeys Parent Company In Breach Of Stock Market Again

Empire / Sobeys Stock Chart
Sobeys Company is currently in breach of Toronto Stock Market regulations in the News again just like I have been saying on this blog and I reported them for it ten years ago when I quit my job there, one of my roles was stock market compliance.


According to Bloomberg Canada Sobeys parent company Empire's 52 week stock price fluctuated between $20 and $30 per share - their stock price rose to $30 between February and May 2019 as Sobeys began new strong arming business tactics to suppliers and competitors while operating on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

This is approximate and I am simplifying and is protentional risk to stock investors. According to my research in the public record Sobeys remains unregulated by the SEC in Canada whatever that is as no public comment was made about their new Stock Market Breach.

Sobeys new business tactics which are outside of Stock Market Regulations is creating a risk to investor and suppliers of their store products who also operate on the Stock Market.

What the company is doing is using their credit from food suppliers as financial loans to open new businesses while not paying their debts, creating an unreported fluctuation in the Stock Market, meaning if the new stores are unsuccessful Sobeys will not be able to repay their debts to food suppliers meaning they will lose their inventory while it sits on store shelves and will impact suppliers stock prices.

This kind of financial risk is against regulations of the SEC but Sobeys remains unchecked in Canada. Plus, they are using the money to open new store to strong arm other business to close to steal their market share. 

Like this, Sobeys suppliers are issuing them food and products on credit then they are repaid later, Sobeys is now "extending" their payment terms back to their creditors by weeks. That is like you telling the credit card company that you will pay your loan back on your terms whenever you want. Then you would be using the money for your loan payments to make down payments on new loans in some kind of pyramid scheme or financial racket.

Like this, that credit repayment to food suppliers is hundreds of millions of dollars per week that is not being paid back on time to suppliers. So Sobeys is selling their food and products from suppliers and then "holding" the suppliers money in their possession from repayment - hundreds of millions of dollars per week.

This is the possible scenario...Sobeys is using the money from it's suppliers to open new businesses called Freshco that means the suppliers own those new stores because it was bought out of their repayment money.  If they don't get the money back.

What that is similar to is "flipping" houses.

The supplier money was withheld from repayment (that is not Sobeys money) and saved in their bank accounts. Then Sobeys is "strong arming them" by not repaying the depts. 

Then they are attempting to open new stores with the cash called Freshco, if an effort to raise money then they will repay their loans back out of the new business revenue.

What this means is Sobeys is close to a state of bankruptcy protection if the deal goes bad which is a risk to investors and their suppliers on the Stock Market.

Sobeys shares will drop and be worthless and investors will lose their money and their supplier stock prices will drop - this is because they are UNEGULATED on the stock market, or they can't do that. 

Here is a simple example - you hold back your house payments to the bank for several months to save a large sum of cash and tell them you will pay them back in several months.

Then you use the cash from not paying your mortgage to put a down payment on a new house, then you fix it up and sell and "flip it" for a profit. Then when the flip house sells you take a cut of the profit and then pay your own home loan back.

Typical ponzi scam? I'm not sure.

That's what Sobeys is doing I would guess. That's if I worked their and was from the SEC to watch them operate like what I turned them in for. If fact that was my job in stock market compliance at their company. 

That creates a massive risk on the stock market to all involved parties. All suppliers inventory could be lost if the deal goes bad, their stock will be worthless and suppliers stock prices will drop because of the massive amount of supplier lost inventory.

It's worse than that and also a breach of stock market regulations because they are using they money to strong arm smaller business to steal their cut of the food market by opening new cheaper stores or something next to them to steal their customers which is apparently their whole business model which I recently learned.

If I was a stock market regulator and at the SEC or somewhere I would rate this as a level one breach and call it stock market fraud.

That means they are using investor money and supplier money to open new stores to strong arm other business by opening new stores form money gained from not repaying their debts while operating on the stock market, classic stock market fraud.

 If that is all accurate then Freshco actually belongs to their suppliers and their investors, not Sobeys.

That's because this deal would not be approved with proper stock market oversight in Toronto because it's probably illegal and too much of a risk to investors and suppliers.

When I am researching government constitutional breaches I would say that is what this is and would locate the parties at the "business strategy approval board" whatever that is who is not regulating Sobeys in Toronto. I don't know what all that is yet so I will have to do more research. 

What should happen is the Courts should be blocking Sobeys new business transactions but they are not, so that is where the breach is I would guess.

My advice would be that Federal Stock Market Regulators in Toronto or Ottawa need to intervene while the breach is still open and get the courts to block Sobeys business deals to get their suppliers money back, I would also assume that Sobeys is being sued in the courts right now by businesses in that local area for damages for constitutional infractions on them by Sobeys because they are using unfair tactics which are currently unregulated on the stock market to steal their businesses customers by opening cheaper stores next to them with supplier money - all against Canada's Constitution. 

If you want references SEC Regulators it's all over the news right now so go look it up and maybe try and figure out what your job is.

Coincidently enough if you watch the Sobeys graph as their stock price goes up, the strong arming tactics increase and this is also the same time period since last October where I was harassed and the public was flamed right at the same time as Sobeys public strong arming business tactics began.

Just like I said. 

Visit my Sobeys Company Community Watch Dog Page at www.sobeys.info which is currently an ad for my band Collapse and the album on the page is the one I was working on when I worked at Sobeys and was flamed by them when their staff tried to steal my work. Get all that yet people? Or what.

Things To Be Careful About In The Heavy Metal Music Scene

Be Careful Of Crowds At Concerts
This is some advice I have to people or kids getting into Heavy Metal music and going to concerts and stuff from my experiences and things that have happened to me. Heavy Metal and stuff is all super awesome if you're into it but here is just some stuff to watch out for, the bad part, that kids and parents should know. Not drugs specifically, that's the regular part.

The main thing is going to Heavy Metal concerts, in fact not many music fans even go to concerts at all or they only go once in a while, for me today I only go to shows put on by large labels like Sony or BMG which would be like a large promotion, like a huge Metal Fest or something and no small Heavy Metal concerts where the crowd harasses you.

Regular music fans will only go to a concert to see the band play and then go home, or even bands. They will just go play the concert and then leave and go home right away, maybe sometimes there will be an after party with the band or something that you might get invited to but that is only for ONE day.

After that the band leaves and you have to go home. 

What happens is people at these shows will try and get you to stay there with them and talk to you every day. They will say that's the "metal scene" but it's not, metal bands and fans do not live together and hang out and go to concerts and play shows everyday.

That is a different crowd, every one else just goes to the concert and then goes home. At these smaller non label backed concerts people there will try and "lure" you into a scene and get you to hang out with them and talk to them every day in a group and take up all your time.

When you get down there and start talking to them it's full of scams, crime and they bum you for stuff. They all say they are some "metal scene" but they all "live together" and hang out every day all talking to each other, then you find out later it's all bootleggers trying to get you involved in crime and trying to get money and stuff from you.

No one hangs out like that talking every day, you might have a few friends into metal and know some bands but you only see them at concerts and that's it. No one "lives in the metal scene", Heavy Metal music is just a hobby and people have a real life. Even if that's a record label or magazine that's just for work or concerts and they don't take it home with them.

It's usually only a few friends into that music and then they only see the other people at shows, then outside of that they have a regular life. Other people will try and talk to you all the time and tell you what to do all the time and try to tell you "how to be metal". None of that is a real music scene, that's people trying to lure you out and use you and manipulate you for financial gain or other illegal activities. 

Don't get tricked by that, no one hangs out like that. Then they all talk in this huge group about every thing you do, then if you say you don't like one person there they all get mad at you. That's probably because their all involved in scams and stuff and are covering for each other all talking and you can't say anything bad about them, if you do they all start fighting with you.

I don't hang out like that, I have a regular life and do music stuff as a hobby and now I have a real business that I've setup or am in the process of doing. Here is a story that happened to me.

People around me tried this scam on me that didn't work and I had to put the run to them but I also got ripped off as I keep saying on here to let people know that that these scams don't work on me. What they did was they were trying to "figure out" how I wrote my music.

First this all nuts talk anyway, but they were saying they wanted to know "where my music was coming from" in my band Collapse. They all thought that someone else was doing it or that I was copying other music they never heard of, then they tried to put me in a situation where they would make me follow them around and give them money, trying to boss my music stuff around.

Here is the stunt they pulled on me, two of them gave me Heavy Metal cd's of bands I  didn't listen to on separate occasions and then they started bragging them up saying how awesome they were and tried to make me say it back to them and start "following them" and making me "tag along" with them like I was a poser or some kid that didn't know anything.

Yes, I have a lot of stories about the music scene and it's filled with scams and rip offs. Anyway, I thought it was nothing and didn't really like the records so I just put them aside and forgot about it. Then what they did was they were listening to me writing music for my band Collapse and were waiting to see if I would copy or plagiarize the records they gave me, to see if that's how I was writing my music, it isn't.

That never happened and later I got into a huge fight with them. So they tried to set me up to see if I would copy the bands they told me about and I didn't. They tried do that to make me "follow them" and try to "lead me around like on a string" begging to them for friendship and stuff.

What was happening was they were trying to say they "knew how to make me do things" by giving me cds and then saying they were good to see if I copied them when I wrote my music so they would find out where I got my ideas at. Then they tired to say that meant they knew how to make me follow them around and they knew how to make me "do stuff" and said I was "stupid" and "would fall for anything" then what they meant was they tried to tell me to give them my money.

So the whole stunt was they setup all this music stuff and were pretending to be in a Heavy Metal scene to try and see where my music came from by playing tricks on me, then they tried to make me follow them around and make me do stuff. They stuff they wanted me to do was give them my money.

Yeah so what that was all about the whole thing is later they tried to make me give them my money.

They were doing things like copying me and doing music stuff that I was into to try and get me to "go to them" then if I went there (I didn't) they were going to try and tell me what Heavy Metal music was and what to listen to and them boss me around and get me to "do stuff for them" like let them use my car all the time or something that at the end of it they tried to make me give them money, that was the whole thing.

That never happened, I am in the regular music scene and know what it is anyway and they must not have known any of that and they tried to take me in a scam making me follow them around at the crowds at Heavy Metal concerts, like making me live there with them and bleeding my bank account, apparently all those people are bootleggers anyway.

So they tried to make me stay in their crowd to get money out of me which didn't work and I got in a huge fight with them and then I never talked to them ever again and that was it. Now I don't go to those concerts where those people "group at" hanging out in a crowd.

They did that to me because I have a University Degree and stuff and a good career plus I play music and had a record out at the time that today would most like be in the BMG Music group because they larger labels bought that old scene out that I kept, my first record.

Don't be concerned though, nothing happened except a huge fight I had with them just before I moved away to Halifax to continue to play music and start my own business, that's what I am doing now.

Yes, that's pretty pathetic I know but it's going on at smaller shows where strangers "try and get to know you" which I don't participate in when I'm out drinking at a concert or something. Now I only go to large shows which are safer like from Sony or someone and then just go back home, even if I was playing a concert. Not because of regular music fans but because of scams and thieves.

Just remember to be careful of crowds at concerts and don't get fooled by these "fake friends" that want you there every day hanging out with them. They are just looking to use you for stuff and milk you like for you car all the time, getting you to buy them or give them stuff and then they will start telling you to give them money if you fall for it. 

Of course I didn't fall for that and everything is fine anyway but it makes you mad that people pull those tricks on you and stuff so my advice from all that is just be careful at that stuff and watch out for those things.

Obviously they didn't know anything about me thinking they could do that like how far I was involved  into music at a business level and that I didn't need people to tell me what bands to listen to or they thought I was desperate for friends or something, like some kid or something that didn't know anything looking for friends, when I was a University Graduate with a career etc. and they were all poor with no education, pathetic.

"Music Blog" Pages

From my last post I mean that the regular United States Death Metal and probably metal scene is the main one, that's huge and is just US influenced. That's the biggest one, that's where I'm playing at and it's most of my audience cantered in California, the rest comes from everywhere else.

I was just noticing that the record labels are uploading their back catalogs of their audio albums to YouTube as official versions that can be shared on any webpage across the internet. 

This cuts down on open file sharing blogs like this Slayer page, which is a blog with links to albums on Mediafire that you can download. That is not something I participate in, I may share pictures of bootlegs and blog about them which I will be doing when I see awesome bootlegs but any sound I share comes from YouTube, making it official. Anything on YouTube they are saying has been screened by the owners, now they are making official copies.

On these blogs:


These are blogs inked to "file rips" and full of scams and click throughs similar to Megaupload. Yeah, you can find albums on that like file sharing and it's open on the web but you have to "scour" the pages to find the download links and they are full of pop ups, ads, scams, fake files and fake click throughs.

Anything I do does not participate in that, any songs or albums I share are from an official site. If I cover a bootleg on a blog then it's just for blogging...I would only share the audio if it has been posted and screened on YouTube and I never host other labels audio or video files on my pages.

I'm just showing the difference between what I'm doing and those music sharing blogs like in the link above.

Working In Death Metal Music

The Old CD Plus On Barrington St. Halifax
Heavy Metal music and Death Metal music is not all just running around with your sword and shield fighting Christians during The Crusades, there are all kinds of other things going on there. A common theme in "metal" is Scandinavia folk lore like in Black Metal in Norway and also places like Finland are there Celtic heritage. 

A lot of Heavy Metal from the region is Viking influenced with swords and shields and Norse god folklore like Odin and similarly in Finland with their Celtic heritage. Something like that, and also includes places like Sweden. 

Many of these bands and topics may not be known or popular in North America because we have a different culture and not as old like with the Viking topics in Northern Europe. They are singing about the days before Santa Claus, Christianity and the Crusades. Just remember though, all heavy metal is not about the Norse Vikings following the god Odin and fighting the Christian Crusaders. Or at least Viking descendants during that time period.

What I'm saying is people might not get a lot of topics in Heavy Metal and not like the music because they don't have a real connection to their Viking heritage and other folk music influences that they grew up with from Europe, people in North America might not have been exposed to flutes and stuff like that like in Europe and don't really get the Heavy Metal aspects those musicians are using.

That may make a heavy metal band huge in Italy and no one in North America because kids don't get any of that here. Maybe. 

That is the essential theme of Black Metal, Norse god's, pagan's which worship nature and Viking topics. Europe is totally different than North America in those aspects for example Italy has no Copyright laws or something and bootlegging is rampant or it used to be, however you're not allowed importing those albums, the Netherlands is also rampant with Bootleggers.

Today I would have to pinpoint the Netherlands as being the top region for bootlegging maybe along with Tokyo, Japan who has expert bootleggers that create counterfeit collectable albums for one cent and sell at $500 right on eBay. 

Of course you can't prove that, that's up to Interpol to stop.  Just be careful collecting these expensive albums, today those could be almost exact duplications of original versions. Also if it wasn't for bootleggers from the Netherlands my Johnny Cash collection would look pathetic. They are the ones pressing all those rare recordings and stuff. I'm starting to think Johnny Cash is the number one bootlegged artist coming from Scandinavia, I've gotten tons of awesome records of Johnny Cash coming out of there. 

North America has mainly "standard" heavy metal which is mainly pop culture influenced by horror movies, partying or political influences. The American and Canadian Death Metal sound is mostly gore, horror and political while Europe also has all that it is Viking and Norse influenced with many different instruments and "sounds" in their records. 

Germany is one of my favorite metal scenes anyway, which a lot of people don't get over here and Black Metal from Norway which is Viking influenced. I'm also a large fan of Quebec Heavy Metal in Canada in the regular music scene not the poser scene of wanna be artists spamming everyone. 

Why am I saying all this? Well I'm working on my business and setting up a retail store setup which will be online only for now with my Heavy Metal record label Forward Regression Records, if that gets big enough I'm not opposed to opening a retail outlet at the mall or something if I had all kinds of inventory just sitting there people tell me I should just put it in a shop at the mall just to make extra money. 

Well I wouldn't be working in it, I've have to hire someone to set that up and run it for me from the music business and let them do it, like someone who has experience running record stores and retail outlets at the mall, then I'm just the owner and I'm busy doing something else. On top of that I'll have no liability if something happens at the store at the mall since I'd have someone else at the mall running the store or stores for me. 

These are just topics that are coming up when I'm doing my business planning and talking about financials and stuff and how to manage my money when my business is setup like for investments and stuff, putting some of my inventory at the mall might help turn over some of my savings money by selling cds and stuff at the mall.

No that's not CD Plus people because I get asked that because I used to work there. I used to work in the "A&A Records" group of people with Records on Wheels and CD Plus but that all closed years ago so no, I'm not trying to reopen CD Plus because people ask me that from my old store at the mall. Mine is brand new, and not CD Plus reopening. People think I'm CD Plus for some reason, I have to tell them no, I only just used to work there.

The picture above is the old CD Plus main store in Atlantic Canada on Barrington Street in Halifax, that store was the old Urban Sound Exchange mixed with A&A Records, hence...CD Plus. That's not totally accurate but it's good for hype.

Upstairs there it used to be a Club for bands that I used to play at when I was like 20 and probably invented Death Metal there in like 1996. They also used to have the old multi story Sam the Record Man Store just beside that back then and I even met Sam himself down there once in the cassette tape days just before Cd's came out. 

My story of Sam the Record Man himself when I met him is he was down on Barrington street when he was pretty elderly yelling at everyone to get the store cleaned up when I was there shopping for heavy metal cassette tapes, he seemed pretty mad that day but I'm sure he wasn't always like that.

Why I'm saying about the differences between European and North American heavy metal is some albums might be a failure in North American Record Stores and huge in Europe because of cultural differences and the same goes there for bands from North America.

So when I hear a record as a music guy I might say "yeah man, this is the most awesome record I ever heard in my life" but they have no sales because no one knows what they are talking about. When I hear it I know it's a huge metal hit album, but other people just don't get it. 

My advice is, I would sign it even with no sales because if people actually hear it that band will be huge. A few albums later after years of no sales that band could be the next Razor or someone, a gold selling band in Canada on an independent label in the 1980's but you never know what album will take off.  

I'm trying not to take on loans and investments to fund my record label however I'm still doing all the steps to do that just to see what the bank and financial lenders say about my business plans, then there may be something there that I want so I'm doing all that just incase I get a good offer. 

My audience right now is mainly United States and Los Angeles for my music which means all that stuff I am promoting is huge in Los Angeles and California in Heavy Metal, meaning that will catch on other places later when I get promoting longer and larger, later that will break out in the German and England metal scene later, for now my main audience and market is LA and California. 

When people ask me about getting your band signed the short answer is you can't because all the bands suck to real labels. To be the next Motley Crue or Venom or someone and like Iron Maiden for example is a rare occurrence in music, even Black Metal like Mayhem or Emperor. It's generally impossible to get to that level.

That means there are ten million demos and bad albums per second out there and no one will sign it and it doesn't sell at all. In that pile there might be a few good bands that would maybe be the next Razor or someone. That's what I'm listening to and looking for, not the crap but the good ones like Razor from Toronto. 

So no probably you can't get your band signed in that pile of demos unless your Dave Carlo and Razor, I'm not saying give up but the odds are against you. Quebec Death Metal is one of my favorite "genre's" of music - that means category. 

However, the scene is overpopulated with crap, posers and scams and is not going anywhere. Montreal for example is or was the top Death Metal scene in the world however that also comes with the worst crowd of people I ever met in my life and all terrible bands, scams and rip offs.

When they say Montreal or Quebec Death metal they mean Nuclear Blast Records artists not local bands scamming everyone and can't play. That area has produced several huge death metal bands that made the "category" so huge anyway. That's Nuclear Blast Records and Sony and them not the local metal scene, that's all posers.

The real scene there is it's a large venue with several large bands on Nuclear Blast or Sony or something like Carcass and Napalm Death were for ten minutes, they are what all heading back to BMG and Sony these days.

That's a popular venue with large concerts for Sony in heavy metal like Iron Maiden and them with tons of FANS going to concerts, that's what makes Montreal a huge heavy metal city. That of course comes with the worst crowd of posers, bootleggers, scams and ripoff's in all of metal that I ever met.

I'm saying those small artists with their demos and independent albums are not the Montreal or Quebec scene it's large bands like Kataklysm and them that make the scene and concert tours from Sony. That has nothing to do with local cd shops and small labels pressing demo albums that would never be signed by Sony or BMG. 

So no you can't get signed in Heavy Metal unless you're the rare exception, the rest is just crap in a sea of shitty demo albums just like it always was. 

Those are just some thoughts of the day I had to share on the internet about things I'm dealing with and the current topics I'm talking about right now in music. That's what people are talking about and asking me when I show them my business plans and financial forecast plans etc. when they start grilling you about the music business from the bank loan manager and investment firms and them, that's just stuff you need to know about operating in the music business in the "Heavy Metal Landscape" they call it.
