Please present your label, when and where was it started, who is involved in its activities and what genres are promoted by it.
I started IBP in 1995 after I put my previous Label Obscure Arts Prod. to rest. IBP is a german based UG Label & Distro thats deals with everything from Doom to Black Metal release & distro wise.
Tell us a few words on each or the most important releases of your label, and which of them are still available for purchase.
Since we did more then 100 releases so far it would be a bit to much to feature all of them here. People interested in our release schedule can have a look on our web-page under the "Release" section. Every release is featured there with the cover artwork and press release details as well as year of releasing.
Speaking of important releases: All of them are important to me othwerwise I would have not released them! There is no this one is better then the other one or whatever bullshit. I'm free in choose of what I release so out of this reason I dig all my releases on a personal level.
What are the most important features you look for in a band that is or has the chance to be signed on your label?
Easy answered: Music & Ideology of the Band must please my personal taste and there must be a level of beign able to talk to each other on a kinda "private" base besides all the business crap.
How can a band get in touch with you? What should bands know before submitting their promos for your consideration?
Bands can contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org . We are not accepting music files send by e-mail. If someone is serious interested in working with IBP can contact us by e-mail and we'll provide him with a snail mail adress to send a promo package. Sending a promo package does not automatically mean we gonna release your Band! Time is limited and whenever we find the time to listen to the subbmited material and we have some interest we'll get back in touch.
What's the most important thing in the relationship between you and your bands? What is your label offering to its bands?
As mentioned above there need to be a "private" base as well. If I like the music of some Band but can't stand the members personally it is totally out of question that I'm going to work with them. Offers depend on the release itselfs. This varies too much and is kinda private between the bands & us as well.
Is there anything you planned with your label and has not yet been completed?
I wanted to do a Cabal (Sweden) Compilation LP and all arrangements had been done already but we still try to gather more material for this one which turned out to be more difficult as expected!
How does the future looks for your label? Any major projects you would like to share with us?
Future looks good so far. We have a packed release schedule til 2014 at least. Some projects that are going to be done in 2013 are Voices From The Darkside Book, Beyond 1st album, Odru Jahad 1st Album, Bölzer MLP, Aggressa LP, Unaussprechlichen Kulten 7"EP, Nazarene Whore 7"EP, Holocausto LP, Ancient Crypts Demo-Tape, Necroholocaust 1st album, Cult Of Fire 2nd album ....to name a bunch of plans.
