Redeemer FAQ
« on: February 06, 2006, 06:32:32 pm »
Q:
Oh, mighty Lord Gaz, plz explain teh edition-confusion to me, pleez0r, mkthx?

A:
Right. Here's the scoop.

There will be two editions of Redeemer. One isn't really called anything, and by default has been dubbed "retail" edition, and the other one is the "underground" edition.

Why 2? I'll explain.

You all know you've waited very long for this, and the reason for that was that we wanted to optimize the conditions of its release, make sure we employed the correct channels etc, and stayed free and true while doing it.

Eventually, we were approached by a record label (JMT-Music) who offered us initially a master deal for Redeemer (but when I sent Redeemer to Tomi at JMT, he changed the deal to a "normal" multialbum deal (3 albums, 4 years)). We turned it down, but another deal has been made, to make use if JMT's distribution channels while retaining our freedom to use our name as we please.

The drawback here was that the JMT release of Redeemer will lag a few more months due to preparations and whatnot. That's why Tomi at JMT suggested to us that we release our own version now, to get it out there to the fans instantly, while he in turn could modify the tracklist to optimize his version of Redeemer to a more "mainstream" audience (making the album shorter, removing some of the the more "difficult" songs, etc).

We thought this was a great idea, since that means we get to give you guys, the hardcore fans, the "director's cut" of Redeemer, as it was initially intended, while the mainstream crowd, the store people and those not yet familiar with machinae supremacy, get the retail version.

03 . RONIN             
04 . HATE       
05 . I KNOW THE REAPER

While the Underground will have all track except Ghost. Right?

Greatest question phrasing ever! Loves it :-*

This all sounds really cool; good for the fans and good for the 'general public'. Although us hardcore-ites will end up getting both editions anyway. Really looking forward to it ^_^

That's basically what he and the site said, yes.

It's really nice to know that Redeemer will reach out beyond what MDX managed to do. Getting the album into stores will probably make people look at you as a more "serious" band, which is good. Also, a more commercial version isn't a bad idea, though we really love you for letting us have the full-blown underground edition as well. Thank you for that!

And Spider Chii - of course we will. Given that the retail version becomes available online, JMT music sells their records outside of Sweden, or some of our swedish friends finds it a good idea to play distributor for us...or, of course, I take a trip to Sweden and happen to find it there.
