"The 4th new album from Heavenwood 'Abyss Masterpiece' is out now by Listenable Records! Today is the day once it's March 14th! We would like everyone to buy this records instead of just downloading it, this is a message to the Heavenwood fans mostly because we noticed, even before the released date, that 'Abyss Masterpiece' is having thousands and thousand of illegal downloads. Perhaps you're thinking 'oohh just another download bla bla preaching stuff.'
"No my dear friend this is the point: Heavenwood doesn't live from music but the persons who release the albums, invest in the production, artwork, distribution, and promotion does do, so as usual in any business, if you have a company than you must have at least the return from the investment you have done and that's the support you're doing to the band you enjoy and for the label (in this case our international label french Listenable Records) exist and support future albums from Heavenwood with decent sound, decent artwork, decent promotion and most important of all decent distribution for you all to have the opportunity of buying our new record at your local music store even if you're from Europe, North or South America, Asia or even from Emirates.
"Listenable Records is one of the few metal record companies that's working for years with passion, honesty and releasing new talents to the world such as Gojira, Textures, Hacride just to mention some of the new metal bands that nowadays you enjoy because of Listenable Records A&R Laurent Merle and his hard working staff!
"We do understand that you download it if you want to listen first, we understand if you don't know Heavenwood then you will want to listen to it first and then decide but if you're really a fans from our art don't forget to buy the original and keep it on your collection, we do this for you guys! A strong Portuguese musical and friendly hug."
