Salem Rose Music Publishing has announced its publishing cooperation with HATCHET. This Bay Area, California quartet have been steadily building a compelling story for themselves the last 5 years between several DIY national tours and a 2008 debut on Metal Blade Records. Now with a revamped lineup and a new 3-song demo the band are seeking a new label to release the album.
“We had a great spark early on with Awaiting Evil, however the pure passion and hard work ethic that it truly takes to support it was not shared by all original members. We now have a stronger, mature, and musically tight 4-piece,” explains singer/guitarist Jules Ramos. “We are as a group and I personally excited to be working with Salem Rose Music. With Marco’s expertise and obvious great rep not only as a manager of bands like Warbringer & Bonded By Blood, his publishing roster showcases some great bands and all showing momentum in positive directions. I am confident we are in good hands and can’t wait to see what we can accomplish. A new label for our sophomore album is step one.”
Salem Rose Music began in 2007 as a management company handling the affairs of WARBRINGER, as well as establishing a Music Publishing division handling the administration of works for emerging artists including DIABOLIC, HEXEN, BLESSED CURSE (ex-Devastator), EMBRYONIC DEVOURMENT, AVENGER OF BLOOD, SEVENTH CALLING and more. Since the company, a creative venture from industry vet Marco Barbieri, which assists young bands in their ambitions, has begun managing additional artists, including ABIGAIL WILLIAMS, PATHOLOGY and BONDED BY BLOOD, as well as entertaining new avenues like promoting local shows/festivals, consulting and producing.
