Please present your label, when and where was it started, who is involved in its activities and what genres are promoted by it.
Possession Productions was started in 1997. Now we are three persons sect who sacrifice our lives for Black/Thrash/Death/Doom Metal and strange Dark music.
Tell us a few words on each or the most important releases of your label, and which of them are still available for purchase.
Ufff… we have more than 100 releases. It’s not easy to choose. I’m sure there were no unimportant releases. We see the each release like step forward for the label to develop it. We use chances to support cool music and improve the quality of our activity as a label. We do not care if it is less known or famous band. We look for cool music to support not for fame. Band must be like outcast in Arts but struggling for their values. Check our website for details www.possession.ru
What are the most important features you look for in a band that is or has the chance to be signed on your label?
As I said - cool music with special dark atmosphere. We search for unique sound and feelings in songs. And radical spiritual passion inside of course! We search for bands that live by what they preach. For those who can stand for their ideals in real life.
How can a band get in touch with you? What should bands know before submitting their promos for your consideration?
It’s always different. Some bands were signed after personal meeting, some via e-mail and social media. I think bands just need to have full-length album recorded to show what they REALLY can do.
What's the most important thing in the relationship between you and your bands? What is your label offering to its bands?
Real passion for their Arts. Now times are really different from 15 years ago. Everything is going much faster. So if band thinks that independent label like Possession can make a star from unknown band without co-operation from the band’s side that is an illusion. We offer qualitative release of your album, honest royalties, digital promotion via our media contacts. We are open for ideas coming from our bands about how to make everything better.
Is there anything you planned with your label and has not yet been completed?
A lot of things! We are developing and improving constantly so this "to-do-list” is always full of ideas to be realized. I mean not releasing of an album. I’m talking about improving of our services. By the way next month we will start special and unique service for our customers. Sign up for our news and join us on https://www.facebook.com/possession.productions
