Please present your label, when and where was it started, who is involved in its activities and what genres are promoted by it.

Greetings! Officially, the labelís activity I started by the release of VOLKH "Solemn March into the Ragnarok". It was the year 2006. The CD was released in December. I do all alone and I bear all the responsibility for the progress report. Before the label started, I had an interest in Ukrainian black metal. Thatís why I wanted to support Ukrainian black metal scene in this way as the publication bands on CDs.

Tell us a few words on each or the most important releases of your label, and which of them are still available for purchase.

All my releases is great for me. But I think the most powerfull band is MYRKVIDS DRAUMAR. I bet on this band. MYRKVIDS DRAUMAR has a big future! They are working hardly and are not treading water. All my releases are available. But the first three releases (VOLKH "Solemn March into the Ragnarok", MYRKVIDS DRAUMAR "We are War", MOLPHAR "Lake of Fire") are only a few copies. Who wants to buy the discs, let hurry. I donít plan to print additional.

What are the most important features you look for in a band that is or has the chance to be signed on your label?

Now our label doesnít look for bands. Usually the bands found the label. I can say not all bands are interesting and promising for me. All my affairs are done over the Internet. I donít know what we do without one. I have my official site and all my contacts are there. I have some criteria for the selection of bands. Style of music should be black metal. Next band should record a high-quality musical material and to design the booklet. Then we contract with bm-band. But there are legal aspects and they are not interested. Violent satanic bands are neglected. The label is interested in the heathen worldview.

How can a band get in touch with you? What should bands know before submitting their promos for your consideration?
You can contact us by email vacula@online.ua. As I said the label publishes high-quality music and if the band has a dirty sound on the album itís no result exactly. More important to note that the album should be present live drums. We accept promotion, but you can send in mp3 (320kbt/s).

What's the most important thing in the relationship between you and your bands? What is your label offering to its bands?

Certainly the most important thing between the label and the band is a mutual understanding and compromise solution. We are working under a contract where all specified. Sure, the label does the promotion. There are the advertising in magazines and on the radio show. Besides we do a distribution in many countries in Europe and America. Also we negotiate for the concerts...

Is there anything you planned with your label and has not yet been completed?

If I set a goal I'm going to end and I do all my work completely. I donít like the word "to planĒ. It is uncertain word. It is like the word "to dreamĒ.

How does the future looks for your label? Any major projects you would like to share with us?

I do not like to plan ahead and to say about the future... Often all scheduled breaks. Maybe I'm a superstitious person. Always we work upon receipt of the proposal from the band.

How can anyone get in touch with you? Please list your website, webstore and/or social media links.
