Wretched, that slow-syllable-tongued frontman for Grave Robber, utters some words:

I’m launching a new record label called ROTTWEILER RECORDS.  I’m currently seeking Christian metal, punk, goth, hardcore bands who have Christmas songs for a FREE download compilation.  The plan is to submit this comp to radio stations all over the U.S. in time for their Christmas playlists.

If you’d be so kind, please post this and let them know I need wav files sent to Rottweilerrecords@gmail.com by Nov. 26th.

Artists already on the comp are: Leper, Coriolis, True Liberty, Frost Like Ashes, Grave Robber, and Fireborn
