EMI Label Services/ Caroline Distribution Announce ‘The Metal Crew’ – a New Retail / Consumer Initiative – Website Launches November 9!

New York, NY, November 8, 2010….EMI Label Services is once again bringing metal to the  masses with an extensive new retail program known as The Metal Crew. This  will include online, retail and consumer components aimed at spreading the  word about some of EMI’s heaviest metal acts. The campaign will work with  retail to create ongoing discounts, official seal of approval stickers and  better placement for their legendary list of metal labels including: Century  Media, Nuclear Blast, Earache and Candlelight along with Season of Mist,  Willowtip and Crash Music.

In addition to the retail elements,  The Metal Crew will have an interactive web home for fans and industry alike. Metal heads will be encouraged to visit the website for news and  reviews about upcoming releases, behind the scenes footage of some of  metal’s top artists and a comprehensive look at all things metal for each  month – including a list of where you can buy new metal releases.

The Metal Crew will build upon EMI’s already storied history  of supporting the genre and serve as a lead in to their popular March is  Metal Month campaign, which has become an event in itself for both retail  and metal heads. Sarah Wefald, Senior Coordinator of Customer Marketing for  EMI Label Services/Caroline Distribution said “Obviously we love metal, so  it was really nice to see the hard work pay off with March is Metal Month  for the last two years, with fans and record stores coming together to spread the good word of metal. We hope this new way for everyone to interact  will make it even better.”

Century Media’s Vice  President of Sales, Andrew Hosner, adds “Century Media is excited that metal  will finally be getting the retail recognition it so richly deserves in the  form of The Metal Crew. The Crew will help to bring metal fans together and  make it easier for them to track down and support the latest releases from some of the best metal labels the world has to offer.”

The  Metal Crew’s website will launch on November 9th, featuring Dimmu Borgir, Kylesa, Daath, and King’s X as November’s Crew. The Metal Crew will not only  be the best new spot to read up on metal’s top stories, but will also create  discounts and other great initiatives for your favorite artists.
