Canada's Moshpit Tragedy Records, who have abandoned releasing CDs in favour of letting their listeners download albums for as much or as little as they like, have already caught the attention and support of several key figures involved with the music industry.
"I'm down with what Moshpit Tragedy is doing 100 per cent," states Mike Williams (Eyehategod and Arson Anthem vocalist). "Younger, newer underground bands need to be heard and noticed in these modern digital days without signing their lives away to some bloodsucking record label right outta the gate. It's a very honorable and DIY way to get things done."
Ozzy Osbourne bassist Rob 'Blasko' Nicholson even goes so far as to say "This model could very well be the future of all indie labels." Co-founder Rayny Forster agrees, "Radiohead and NIN have done a similar thing, so we just took that and tried to improve upon it."
