CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC is an Italian HEAVY METAL label established in 2003.
The reputation of the label has grown quickly thanks to the release of some of the most interesting and audacious bands around, with a special link to the US METAL scene. It’s no doubt indeed that some of the most-classic US METAL bands and releases are or have been on CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC . We have had the honor to work with such bands as HAMMERS OF MISFORTUNE, SLOUGH FEG, PHARAOH, TWISTED TOWER DIRE, WHILE HEAVEN WEPT and many others.
CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC still believes in traditional audio supports for its releases, and therefore will continue to produce its bands on a real, physical, touchable format. It’s very important for us to give metal fans the chance to savor the details of our records, smell the freshly printed booklets and inlays, and be mesmerized by the fine details and concepts of artworks provided by some of the best artists and painters around the globe.
At the same time, to keep up with modern technology and change of trends, CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC has been one of the first independent metal labels to embrace the world of digital distribution, in order to offer to the widest range of people possible some GOOD METAL MUSIC: this is why we are here for, after all.
DEMO SUBMISSION POLICY:
We are always interested in listening to new bands, so you are invited to send your physical products (CDs, tapes, DVDs) to this address:
CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC
00153 ROMA OSTIENSE
We also accept digital submissions. If so, please limit the size of the audio files you send by email, or even better, send us a link where we can download or listen to your music.
When sending a physical product, make sure the name of the band it’s written on the CDR (as long as this may seem a silly request, you cannot believe how many unlabeled CDRs we receive).
Please do not send registered parcels or letters, we have no extra time to spend queuing up at the post office, thanks!
Also please bear in mind that generally we are not signing new bands at the moment and that we receive dozens of submissions every week. Therefore please do not expect and do not ask for feedback; we cannot afford to pay an extra employee (because this is actually what we would need!) to answer to this kind of requests. If we have received your music, rest assured that in case we found it interesting enough for a release, we will contact you!
