Obliveon or Oblivion?
People might not know this about the metal scene....just some info.
Great White North Records originally worked with the label Unmatched Brutality Records and did a split compilation call "Great White North 2K5" which is also released on Unmatched Brutality Records as "Clinical Extractions Vol 1." www.ubrecords.com .
The old Great White North Records abandoned their promotion and closed.
Before that Great White North Records promoted Unmatched Brutality Records in Montreal, Canada and helped put out the song "Babykiller" by the band Devourment which is a huge song in the real Death Metal Underground.
That is the same time that my band Collapse came out, that's when they were promoting Devourment - Babykiller.
Great White North Records helped release the song "Babykiller" then they abandoned it.
Devourment later signed to Relapse Records along with Great White North Records artist Fuck The Facts.
That was where my band Collapse first came out.
That "promotion" also helped to put out by promoting bands like Stabwound and labels like Unique Leader Records www.uniqueleader.com bands like Deeds of Flesh and the label Brutal Bands www.brutalbands.com which just re-opened.
That is also part of the origins of the "pig squeal vocals" (it's a singing style) and the old label Great White North Records was promoting Unmatched Brutality Records directly, that's Devourment and the initial release of the huge song "Babykiller" as well as Unique Leader Records and Brutal Bands Records - but it was just in CD Distribution.
Today I am promoting all that on my own at Forward Regression Records www.banzairecords.com .
So Great White North Records promoted Devourment and helped release "Babykiller" on their compilation "Clinical Extractions Vol.1" or "Great White North 2K5" , "Profusion Vol 1." later would have actually been "Clinical Extractions Vol. 2" that my band was on...if they did a "Great White North 2K6" which was called "Profusion Vol 1" instead after they closed Great White North Records.
Then they were doing CD Distribution for stuff like Unique Leader Records and Brutal Bands Records, and other artists - all headed to BMG Rights Management under The End Records if they had of stayed open.
So all that kind of fell under The End Records back then, which is now owned by BMG Rights Management.
Devourment broke the signing style with the "pigsqueal" vocals around that scene and made it popular - but the actual pig squeal vocal style came from the band Pigsty who was the first band to do that. As far as I know.
The Great White North Records scene is the scene that helped launch Devourment at the same time as Collapse my band and started the pig squal vocals..."re re re"...like that.
That is the metal scene where I live at and come from and have always been there.
That is the scene I am preserving on my Great White North Records Tribute Page www.greatwhitenorthrecords.com , to help preserve the promotion that "helped" to launch Devourment, Collapse and started the pig squeal vocals with labels like Unmatched Brutality, Unique Leader and Brutal Bands.
That is some Death Metal history for you.
