I – New Bands
=========

As a reminder, we have taken on a whole new roster of bands in recent months! While this has been a whole lotta metal, for the rest of you please be assured we have some clean / melodic rock acts on the way. Please be sure to listen to and connect with:

Hail the Blessed Hour

Awake the Suffering
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Awake-The-Suffering/369146537738

Bring Them Low

II – New Music
=========

Over the summer we released a very diverse rock and hip-hop album called the Positive Music Sampler. Eight tracks from eight artists, it’s really worth a listen:

Also just recently published is a promo single from Hail the Blessed Hour. Every download goes to help the band’s recording budget! Take a spin and if you want to show some love, take the 99 cents plunge and download “Apostle”:

III – Sneak Peek News
=============

In the next coming months, you will be seeing more band signings, more radio singles, and by early 2011 more releases from Raging Storm. Not to mention any names, but I can say we are looking at some mainstream rock, more melodic / old school metal, of course a few more extreme metal bands, and even some folk acts. Truly an exciting time to be watching what Raging Storm is doing!

IV – Phasing out of the “group” in favor of the “page”
================================

As we were testing the waters with facebook, it was unclear which was better for our music, a “group” or a “page” here on facebook. Well, to be honest the final answer might not be so clear! But there is for certain a whole lot more activity on the Raging Storm facebook page, and I want to invite any of you who haven’t yet to “like” us at the following link:

If for some reason you have a key idea why we really NEED to keep a group as well as a page, I am all ears! Until then, we will likely be phasing out the group by the end of the year.

Thanks for listening and God bless!
