Rogue Records Releases Fallout 4 Mod

Rogue Records America is excited to announce that a new Fallout 4 hard rock/heavy metal radio station mod simply titled "Rogue Radio" is now available on PC and coming soon to Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

"'Rogue Radio' took FOREVER to make because it was the first time we ever made anything in the Creation Engine, so there was a bit of a learning curve," said label owner Dean Martinetti. "But, we got it done, and we've made history as the first record label to make a game mod for a major franchise AND the first time a record label made a product that also showcased other labels' artists. It's a fine day today for Rogue. We also couldn't have done this without these amazing bands helping out. They are just great talents and extraordinary people."

Complete with 44 songs from Rogue Records artists and national and emerging bands from around the globe, as well as two DJs each with their own style and playlist, the "Rogue Radio" track listing is available after the jump. More...

Akeldama Signs With Rogue Records

The Rogue Records America roster just keeps growing, now including the addition of Tampa, FL six-piece progressive metal band Akeldama.

The band has signed a two-record distribution deal with Rogue Records America. Akeldama announces this relationship with Rogue Records America by releasing a re-mastered and remixed three-song EP, simply titled "Akeldama," for free to anyone who wants it.

The band has also become involved with Project Rogue-Titans with the recent recruitment of both singers Andrew Zink and Connor Reibling.

“These guys just really shook my foundation when I heard them,” said Rogue Records America owner Dean Martinetti. “The landscapes in their music is layered thick and never at any moment loses its momentum or pacing. It’s really just well done. So, we had to ask them if they’d be a part of the family…and thankfully, they said yes.”

Akeldama released first full-length record "Everything Beautiful" on September 6th, 2013. The release was noted for its crushing grooves, lush and ambient atmosphere as well as its elite cast of guest contributors, distinguished artists Ashe O'hara (Tesseract), Keshav Dhar (Skyharbor) and Per Nilsson (Scar Symmetry).
