Canadian heavy metal trio CAULDRON are offering fans a free, limited edition CHROMIUM DIOXIDE fanzine with limited edition copies of the band’s upcoming new album, BURNING FORTUNE.
Due to be released in Europe on February 14th and in North America on February 15th, the limited edition CD and vinyl versions of BURNING FORTUNE will include a free special edition copy of CHROMIUM DIOXIDE – a rare and collectible CAULDRON-themed issue of the magazine dedicated entirely to the young Canadian bangers.
CAULDRON frontman JASON DECAY comments:
“Chromium Dioxide is our favourite zine out there, plus we’re good friends with the creator, Phil, so when Earache suggested we include a Cauldron special edition of the magazine as a bonus with the new album, it was a no-brainer. It’s really an honor to have a magazine, let alone one of the most addictive reads out there, dedicate an entire – although mini – issue to us.”
CHROMIUM DIOXIDE creator PHILIP “PHILTHY” BERNARD adds:
“The initial project was entitled “Harry Potter & The Witch’s Warm Mouth”, but for copyright reasons, we decided on “Chromium Dioxide: Burning Fortune Special Edition”.
“The collaboration was natural and, I guess, somewhat inevitable. Funny thing is, the mag was born in the Cauldron jam space. We’d all be pounding back discount beers together, and while the boys practised, I’d be hanging out working my art projects. Basically an Alcoholics Unanimous meets a five-man Art Community Centre. We toyed with the idea of creating a band called Chromium Dioxide, named after that old cassette tape technology, but it never really came to pass due to hectic schedules… and my lack of musical talent. But I’m just fine just being the Sleazy P. Martini of Cauldron. We know our roles.
“The collaboration was just a fun way we’d all be on the same level – except this time I was on leads.”
