Eonian Records here to answer questions ...

Recommended Posts

Greetings everyone,


You will have to forgive me, but I have never spent much on message boards. I have known several of you for a good while, and it was not until recently that a couple of friends told me that many have been asking questions about this new label.


I will do my best to answer any questions you might have ...so please feel free to fire away.


First, I am a husband of 10 years, and a father of a crazy six year old daughter. I am a Marketing Director for Habitat for Humanity during the day and spend probably 30 to 40 hours a week and on the weekends running a new record label called Eonian Records.


For those of you who want to know what Eonian mean:


It comes from the word "Eon" which means "An immeasurably long period of time." This in our case is the Hair Metal era.


I can talk about the label's staff, currently signed artists, new artists that we have not yet announced, how our release schedule is coming along, as well as some confirmed released dates, our distribution deal with Chavis Records, digital downloads on over 50 sites, our art direction, recordings, etc. Anything you are curious about, just ask and I will do my best to answer them in a timely manner.


I also wanted to let you know that David (Sun City), Sam (Retrospect) and I, Stephen (Eonian) exchanged a few e-mails late into the morning to not take cheap shots at each other on message boards, as well as respect who we are all working to sign. There are many great unsigned artists out there, and all three of us have one very common goal and that is to release them to you, the music fans.


Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself and open things up to questions. I will try and make regular stops to post some announcements to keep everyone updated, but also know that our PR staff has been working hard to reach out to hundreds of magazines, webzines, and radio stations ...so you should be seeing a lot of us coming in early 2009.





President, Eonian Records

    • Well this is annoying. He is releasing some of these covers in a vol.1 album, but guess what, fucking vinyl only and when people keep saying on his social media "What about CD?" he keeps saying "Maybe on Vol.2" ... what is the point of having vol.2 on CD if you can't get vol.2? I don't get why artists keep shitting on CD buyers by only including vinyl for releases or for some reason cassettes. Vinyl obviously costs a lot more to produce than CDs and there are far less places available to press vinyl, so they nearly always end up delayed due to back log (remember when Adelle released her last album on vinyl and all the vinyl pressing places said "fuck everyone else, she takes priority" and other artists were all posting on social media that their vinyl release was delayed because of this). This is why a vinyl album is pretty much twice the price of a CD. Anyway, in case anyone is interested https://erik.merchants.se/en/shop.php?fbclid=IwAR2Pmidu4Hx9AkIl_4USksgWaGcA0H0D-rJZKsHkcrQmDaIPTCCXGEu9STY  
    • Well I had certainly not heard anything by Ghost but had heard of them, and as soon as I saw them I thought "Oh, they are probably some growly band or doom sounding, so prob not my cup of tea". Then when they released the Joe Elliot version of Spillways I just had to give it a listen just because of Joe, and I was blown away by how melodic it was. With it's ABBA "Money Money Money" influenced piano (from what I have found out since Forge is a big ABBA fan), and it's catchy as hell tune you don't initially even notice the lyrics are far from the upbeat style of the actual tune, which is by the looks of it the biggest gimmick with Ghost, not the image. They take dark lyrics which are not as satanic as some people will make out, and put them to generally upbeat catchy music. On the back of hearing the Elliot version, I checked out the original and initially I would agree there is very little difference, and the vocals are hard to tell apart but once I started to listen to the original version over and over, I went back to the Joe version months later and you really can hear the difference and you can hear Joe's delivery of some of the lines is different to when Tobias sings them. Anyway, I also checked out a few other songs on YouTube including Twenties from this album, and some older songs like Rats, Dance Macabre, Mary on a cross and Square hammer and loved them all. Due to financial difficulties I searched around until I found a slightly cheaper brand new copy of Impera (£8 against the £13 the likes of Amazon sell it for) and I have not stopped playing it since. Actually now have to review my top albums list from 2022 as I think this may actually now be my stand out favourite, even over Megadeth and Chez Kane. Once money is better I will start going into their back catalogue and will probably work my way backwards as from what I have heard and read, Prequelle and Meliora are more likely to be my cup of tea but earlier than that sounds like it might be more a case of acquired taste.
    • This was all fun and games, but it's getting a bit ugly now.
    • Beast In Black - Ghost In The Rain      
    • Pantera - Shedding Skin    
    • Pantera - Far Beyond Driven 
    • Universal On Switch-Govinda
    • good luck getting ny oilers to follow that little quirk in the "official rules", he goes with whatever previous post he can follow or just simply claims victory.
    • Just seen a post on Girish Pradhans FB page about some guy using the audio from one of his FB videos in a parody video and not crediting him (it's all sorted now). Funny thing is, I forgot the video even existed (my brain would have still been wonky back then). Yes it is a cover version, but damn I wish he would sing more like this on the albums rather than trying to be more agressive with his vocals. I like the albums, but think they could be better if he went this direction vocally.  
    • remember that time Doggy posted Constrictor Redeemer by Liosber and you couldn't follow him? Well at least this time you didn't lie and falsely claim victory, but you did decide to cheat. yea you went back through previous posts til you found one you could follow and quoted it. weak very weak.
