Xtreem Music Comments On Abhorer Release

Xtreem Music has issued a statement regarding the recent Abhorer release.

"This statement is just made to make clear the false accusations appeared in what's supposed to be the official ABHORER MySpace where they accuse XTREEM MUSIC of having released a bootleg CD of their stuff.

"1 - During February and August 2004 we were contacted and were dealing with ex-ABHORER member named Crucifier (aka Hashimuddin Bin Hasmuni) with the intention to release the 'Unholy Blasphemer' CD. After an agreement was reached, both parts signed a contract and XTREEM MUSIC paid the sum of US$ 1.500 on the bank account of such person. Both the contract and receipt of the bank transfer are still in our possession as a proof that we did everything the right way.

"2 - In 2006, looks like the guy from the long-time defunct label SHIVADARSHANA REC. saw that this CD was released and for some reason he just tried to make some profit out of it and contacted us saying that it was not legal and we should stop manufacturing this CD and sending him all our stock to him for free. He was never able to prove us he still hold the rights or that he got in touch with any of the members of the band to ask wether if this was an illegal release.

"3 - We, like idiots, sent him the remaining stock of almost 100 copies and never heard back from him ever since. He just created a MySpace site saying he's going to do some re-issues, but nothing happened. Also looks like he's also responsible for the ABHORER site (casually created just 11 days after SHIVADARSHANA's site). This guy tried to get some advantage from the situation, making us all to believe he's re-forming his label, but most probably he's the typical person absolutely out of this music since ages and just trying to make some extra cash.

"4 - Since neither the guy from SHIVADARSHANA seems to show any reliable proof of anything and neither any of the ex-members of the band contacted us showing his real identity, we prefer to stick what's real: A signed contract and a payment made. We're the only ones showing proofs. No one else is doing this, so for us, this is a total bullshit story!!

"We don't know what's the interest of who in creating this situation, looks like in Singapore there's many envious guys and even that the members of ABHORER ended up in very bad terms, but from here, XTREEM MUSIC wants to state that ABHORER's "Unholy Blasphemer" is NOT, in any way, a bootleg or illegal release!"
