A Digital CD to help raise money for the people of Japan, in the aftermath of the tragic Tsunami and Earthquakes that have devastated the country since March 11, 2011.
We are honoured to collaborate with this charity project with the song Aprile. We made a short video out of our hometown with the music of Aprile… We want to donate this song to the Strength compilation, because unfortunately many Japanese people now have no their hometown anymore…
The label distributes digitally wonderful compilations featuring the finest Indie Musicians all around the world who donate some of their music for charity.
Nowadays you can find 3 compilations released by the label.
Musicians for Oil Relief. We all have heard and are deeply saddened by the Gulf Oil Disaster as it has affected many US coastal regions especially hard hit areas like Louisiana, who has experienced much hardship in the last few years. This is the most recent Charity Release to help those in need; human, flora and fauna alike, affected by this horrific man-made disaster.
The Christmas Gift. This album is being released to help raise money for those less fortunate then us, the families that have been misplaced and lost their homes due to the recession. All proceeds (profits) will go Habitat for Humanity via Music for Relief. The Christmas Gift features 16 tracks consisting of many genres of music form independent musicians like John Keller to internationally known artist like Kelly Keeling. The Christmas Gift is the second release to be released on Melodic Revolution Records imprint label “There Is Hope”.
Songs for Haiti – Relief Through Music. The music community has always pulled together in times of need from Bangladesh to Farm Aid So we are hoping this release will help in the same manner even if on a smaller level. Songs for Haiti is a Double CD featuring 30 tracks + a Bonus Disc featuring four additional tracks. We have chosen to donate all proceeds to Haiti Relief via Music for Relief for this project as there is much that needs to be done for the people of Haiti. From the basics like food water and medical, but there is a bigger picture to look at like the rebuilding of an infrastructure. Schools, Hospitals, Homes, Roads and so on. This will not happen overnight, rather years and possibly even decades. In this compilation there is ifsounds‘ song Oceans of Time too.

Apeirophobia is the fear of the infinite. It could be described as “4th dimensional agoraphobia”. It is something that runs even deeper than the fear of death itself. The human brain can’t really cope with the concept of endless time and when we try to define infinity our destiny often seems to be an endless, obscure, unknown and frightening cage. It is in these moments that we suffer from Apeirophobia. While the fear of death is a basic instinct, Apeirophobia is more of a mental “short-circuit”. Most forms of philosophy and religion have tried to address the problem of the infinite in an attempt to bring this fear under control and this album is about how some of them have “filled the void”, shaping human thought throughout the centuries.

We ended up the mixing of Apeirophobia and sent the album to Steve Kitch of Audio Master for the mastering phase. The album will be released by October.
Meanwhile we have some great news for our friends.
1. Every registered fan will have the chance to download absolutely free one of the songs of “Apeirophobia”, “Summer Breeze”. The download will be available as soon as possible and again will be protected by a password that we will send to fans only.
2. Together with Nick Katona from MRR, we decided to give out 10 CDs absolutely free… NO charge at all, NO mailing fees!
It’s a gift for you, my friends.
We will extract by chance 5 names among the “older” fans and 5 names among the “newer” fans (the ones who will sign up from September the 1st 2010) and we’ll send them a copy of “Apeirophobia” absolutely free wherever they are in the world!
3. If you won’t be among the 10 “lucky” friends, don’t worry. We’re studying together with Nick some limited offer for fans only… so stay in tune.
