Remember New England Is Wicked Pissed? What if there was a RTTP comp? With live tracks from the show, and maybe live tracks FROM shows and such? or something? and mastered at a pro mastering studio? Who would get in on this?

I was thinking part of the money from all sales could go to Aaron so he can keep the site, show, and pics going. thoughts?

the driving force behind the last comp quit on the site after his gf found some bs he typed.
this killed the idea of the second comp unfortunately.

my gf has been cool lately. there where some retards airing shit i did not need. but either way. I mostly got lazy cause i work 50 hours a week as opposed to being unemployed last time. and did have every intention of doing volume 2. i talked to several bands that where all down with volume 2. i did want to leave some space at the end for some live tracks from the radio show. last time there was no mastering cause there was no money for it, if people want to find ways to raise more money then that would be awesome.

I still have $50 from my pretentious erection and a check from keenan of death without weeping for $50 that i never cashed and a cd/song from catalyst.

Porphyria

throwing shrapnel
hand choke neck
for the worse
are some bands that said they wanted to do it, i think i talked to other people i think mike from ftw was gonna ask colin from coa if they wanted to do it. rev might of had a special guest.

I'm still down. Who wants to do the art? does that kid at hold true do mastering? get rates. last time we got the 1000 cds pressed and shipped for $1100. so add mastering to that.

Bluntface Records would be willing to be a sponsor on the second disc as well.

I think the NEiWP comp vol 2 should still happen aside from this.

I was thinking something similar in concept except:

A) it gets sold. 1000 get made and 300 are dedicated to promotional copies for radio stations, giveaways, etc.

B) more labels that have been helped by aaron and aaron's work could get on board. A double disc set split between a few labels comes to barely anything each.

C) one disc could be all live tracks, focusing primarily and possibly exclusively on live perfomances on the RTTP radio show. The other would be studio tracks by bands.

D) 20% of sales could go to Aaron's show. If it sells for $15-$20 from distros / bands (it IS a double disc set) that means 700 units x $15 = 10,500. 20% of this is $2,100, allowing 8,400 potentially to go to everyone else. These are up-in-the-air numbers I am throwing out for suggestion, but you get the idea.

E) part of me really likes the idea of a 4 or 6 page booklet with this that has credits, an RTTP bio, etc etc


This is all up to everyone's input, how much work each person is willing to put in...

I was thinking something that focuses on RttP and what has come of it.

possibly more than a thousand run depending on funding and who wants to work on it.

I would imagine if, when asked the right way and by the right people, Prosthetic, Metal Blade, Black Market, and other such labels -- that have thrived in part due to what Aaron has helped to create -- would want to get on board.

the duel cd/dvd is a great idea, i think that would be huge hit. Like i said if this is really gonna happen you can count us (Burden of Liberty) and Bluntface in. we co-sponsored the first one w/Joe and Heavy Rotation, and it was fucking great. that disc represented NE metal so well, it's too bad there couldn't have been a bigger pressing of that first disc.

I think a DVD wouldn't be the best idea. Who wants to sit in their living room watching bands they dont know play inside a radio station studio?

I think a double disc is a cool idea, particularly with live songs from the show.

How would a DVD of live shows have anything to do with RTTP though? If the idea is to promote what Aaron does then it still doesnt seem like a good idea to me. If you want a DVD of new england bands then it should be called something else. Of course thats just my opinion.

I figure Aaron shoots live shows and a DVD of bands playing live would make sense

I like watching bands I've never seen before on DVD, but futhermore footage from some of the bigger bands that have appeared on the show would get people interested

I dunnow, I mean we can all come up with the idea. At the basic level I am hoping for a comp that have RttP live tracks and some studio tracks by bands, plus a booklet with info about the show and aaron's work.

It's a good time for us to start giving back to someone who's given us a lot in terms of airplay, photos, a website, band pages, etc etc and just plain being a nice guy that shows up and goofs around.

for one CD in full color jewel cases, 3 colors on CD face, 12 page booklet, clear tray, shrink wrapped, and UPS it comes to 1840 before shipping and taxes.


to make it a "dual disc" which is one side CD, one side DVD it comes to about double that.

I wonder how much it is to do 2 CDs in the same case?

these prices are from DiscMakers

good point. what i was thinking was a cd of all the live audio tracks from RTTP performances, and the dvd live footage would be those same bands, so it would still have a RTTP theme. But a dvd might work better as a seperate entity from the CD

nick, the double disc set you can get by special quote. that was the original idea for volume if you remember correctly. i checked diskmakers, dgrinc., superdups, wonderdrug and about 50 other places and the place the i went to http://www.builtbyicon.com/ was by far the best price and service anywhere even on the double disc.

funny how this thread is starting to read exactly like the original NEIWP threads http://www.returntothepit.com/view.php?formid=15560 http://www.returntothepit.com/view.php?formid=15790

I would to have liked to make a bigger booklet too but at that time we rushed to get it done for the metalfest which I would not do again. Last time 600 copies where given away at the fest and all the bands got 10 copies and 100 or something went with dwyer to MDF and more, i think i still have 30 or 40 laying around. This time I think bands should get more like 30 copies and the rest go to promotion and maybe distribution channels. selling them for 15-20 is too high and unrealistic. 5-10 at the most. forget about profits and dividing percentages. worry about breaking even.

i sent e-mails to prosthetic, black market, and metal blade. just didn't happen. I guess rev knows someone at metalblade and can get someone for the comp i don't know about full blown sponsorship.

basicly you want this to be exactly what i wanted volume 1 to be but could not arrange in time. you could push forward with your rttp comp or help me with volume 2 and make the NEIWP series everything you and I picture in an "rttp" comp. either way the groundwork is already in place.

we could either use that, or the "live" version of 'And Their Tears Shall Flood The Earth' (which is about 6:30 in length) either way we're down for helping out with vol. 2.

I'll even contribute artwork for the comp, or do the layout if others contribute artwork.

i agree, get all the bands that post on rttp to submit studio tracks...like 20 bands like the last one. then have the live stuff on another cd. we (dour cursiva) actually have a song that we recorded that we havent put on our demo or myspace yet that we could use. have all the bands and a couple labels throw in a few bucks, and its a done deal. oh ya and ill throw Rossi from the departed's name in the hat for artwork.

i'll restate..............volume was supposed to be 2 discs. 40 bands said they wanted in. 23 bands came thru.

to release 1000 double discs 1 studio + 1 live means about $2000 needs to be raised. that is 20 bands by $100 or 40 bands by $50.

labels are not going to pay to produce a product to be sold for profit by some one else. it needs to be a promotional effort. and furthermore when is the last time you paid more than 5 bucks for a comp?.......never. samplers and comps are handed out for free all the time.

there are a million ideas and ways to go with the project and they are all good. but all the ideas on how to make the comp are useless until the funding is figured out.

If this is given away free, or for donations, how does this raise money for RttP?

would we just put "donate to RttP" and a link in the liners or something?

I'm hoping to raise Aaron some money to keep his work in shape.

bands may sell their copies. they may donate towards aaron if they like. i cannot speak for aaron but i think he does this site cause he likes too and he has banners that help pay for the site not to mention being a computer engineer or whatever, i dont think he is starving by any means. 1000 promotional copies with the "rttp" brand on it is a pretty large donation towards the site as is. This time around i think the bands should get 30+ copies assuming it is only 20 bands by 1000 copies. leaving a few hundred for NEMF, MDF, DooM and Grind fest etc. This way the bands will have a majority of them and may sell them to get some of their money back. whoever puts it together should not profit off of everyone elses money. If one person or label where to pay for the whole thing then they should be able to sell it for profit just like a regular record release.

i think if it ends up being a NEiWP Volumer 2 it should be mastered at a place that specializes in mastering like M-Works or New Alliance (if they have a space to work in by then). the first volume is pretty cool but the mastering is not what it could be.

[Feb 12,2006 12:56pm - Josh_hates_you ""]
there was no money raised for mastering. it was not mastered. sorry.

thats what i keep saying, finances need to be arranged to pay for these great things. ie. bigger booklets, mastering and double discs are not going to pay for themselves.

i think the biggest issue with the first comp was the sound quality. mastering is an important issue, but bands need to get a solid, good quality recording in so that mastering will even make a difference. if some of those tracks off the first comp were mastered, it wouldn't have mattered, some of the recdings would still sound like crap. there needs to be a submission/review/quality control process before anyone puts in money so the "unprofessional" recordings aren't something you just want to skip over.
i don't say this as a "get rid of this band because they're terrible", i personally can't stand listening to a bad recording, and though i love almost every band on the first NEIWP comp, i listened to the cd for a week and forgot i even owned one after that.
so before we start talking about putting a comp together, EVERYONE GO GET NEW RECORDINGS! if the recordings sound good from the start, mastering won't matter.
Though I think a second edition is a good idea. the thought of a live rttp disc on the NEIWP comp is perfect. if it looked and sounded good, it could sell for 5-10 bucks easy... all we need to do is include RTTP bumper stickers in the package.
think about it... New England is Wicked Pissed, Volume 2, Return to the Pit Edition.
I'd toss in another 50 to put a track on there, maybe 75 if my band (WTF) got 30 copies.
hell, i'll do art for free. paint, print, pencil, ink, computer design, whatever. i didn't go to school for nothin.

actually...what was the individual cost for each thing? i.e. blank cd's, inserts, cases

we, as should everyone, have no problem throwing down like $100 to make this come out awesome

also, new alliance will be back in business next week(we just mastered there and he said they were building their new place between the 10th and the 20th

30 bands @ $75 each = $2250 plus money from sponsors would not hurt either.

One standard 2 disc case, 2 discs with 3 color printing, 6-8 page full color foldout or booklet, assembled, wrapped + shipping for 1000 copies = roughly $2000

mastering = $300+

25 copies to each band. 250 leftover for shows, fests, radio stations etc.

these numbers come close to working. 40 bands @$50 or 20 bands by $100 comes up short for mastering.

30 bands would take up about a disc and a half leaving half disc or so for live tracks from the show.

Porphyria
sacreligion
throwing shrapnel
hand choke neck
Burden of liberty
IWEIPH
Within The Fray
ATNFAC
Shroud od Bereavement
One of Troll's bands
contagion
dour cursiva
hardtimes
are some bands that have posted interest.


goratory
teratism w/new drummer, new recording
LAZ
mucopus
accursed
smite the righteous
I, destroyer
feed us fetus
and whoever the reverend wanted to secure from them labels he spoke of, are some bands i would like to see on plus many more.



plus im wicked glad adam time said something about the recording quality. he is dead on in that post. with no deadline that should hopefully not be an issue.

I was under the impression that aaron might choose the live portion being his site, radio show, recordings from the studio. unless by live disc you just mean live stuff in general.

putting it together in 3 weeks again? no thanks. I don't know if it was really that beneficial to do it super quick in time for the fest. We did (and by we I mean Rich from Lost Disciple Records) get 600 copies distributed at the metalfest and I don't know how much exposure it actually got people. More copies to the bands to hand out in a more personal atmosphere might be better.

is it gonna be NEIWP V2?
or RTTP comp?
who is directing the fiasco?
funding?
Do we really wanna push for 2 discs or can we settle (yes we settled for time last time around) for one like last time?
Is the departed guy or dreaming in exile doing the art/layout?
Mastering by who?

making decisions sucks.

my main focus is I want a compilation of live stuff from RttP. we had a great set on that and so did a lot of other bands, and it's worth doing up a comp of all this diverse underground (sometimes above ground) music.
 ________________________________________
[Feb 24,2006 12:47am - Joe/NotCommon ""]
Unless Aaron is somehow more involved this time around, I am not going to get involved with it. I feel that allowing whatever band who comes up with the $$ the fastest is not really a good way to have a compilation that represents 'the scene'.

The cover should be RTTP graphics, taken directly from the site...the layout should be similiar to the site and Aaron should be directly involved with everything minus the cost of putting it out.

If you guys are going the same route the first compilation did, then it shouldn't be associated with RTTP because that doesn't make sense. If it's blatantly obvious it's from RTTP then more people will pay attention to it. I would bet money there are alot of people coming to this site who are not active on the message board, either because they don't care or are frightened off that everyone knows everyone else but them.

Last year, as a sponsor, I felt my money went to promoting bands I could give a fuck about and it didn't help my label at all. I doubt very much it raised any new awarness of this website either, which to me as a promoter and as a label would be very helpful.

Yeah Rev should definately pick the bands instead of pay to play shit. I feel the same as Joe, good post.
 ________________________________________
[Feb 24,2006 7:04am - Josh_hates_you ""]
Understood. But then how does it get paid for since Aaron is not financing it? It would be ideal if one person paid for it and then sold enough to break even or even turn a profit. Then said person would have total creative control and be able to choose bands as they see fit.
 ________________________________________
[Feb 24,2006 10:03am - Joe/NotCommon ""]
Aaron should say which bands he wants, then those bands should pay for their track still. If they aren't interested Aaron can ask a different band to take their spot.

If Aaron is responsible for selecting bands, then the CD will have a wide variety (judging by the playlists of his radio show) and would definately raise my interest in being involved in whatever way.

The last comp had decent artwork, but it didn't remind me of RTTP at all. The cover should maybe be the background of this site with the bone and faded blue color and the RTTP logo behind it.

ewwwwww, that would be ugly, way to have taste. The background is pixellated enough on the web, if you used it for print you probably couldn't even make anything out.

The layout for the last comp was more professional looking than expected and I'm glad it didn't incorporate graphics directly from the site. Dumb idea.

[Feb 24,2006 10:36am - Joe/NotCommon ""]
I've been making cd layouts for 6 years, I know how it works little girl.

I figured Aaron had a hi res version because he always has everything.

Either way, if it's not directly tied to RTTP, but just uses it's name but consists of first come paying bands then I am not interested in being involved. I am sure it doesn't matter but Heavy Rotation doesn't exist anymore which leaves only BluntFace records as a sponsor. I don't recall anyone else stepping up last year.
