Xentrix Members Form New Band, Hellfighter

Three former members of British thrash metal veterans Xentrix, singer Simon Gordon, drummer Den Gasser and guitarist Kristian Havard, have formed a brand new metal band named Hellfighter. The band also recently signed a record deal with Heavy Metal Records, through which they will release their debut album around late Spring/Summer time. Simon Gordon states:

"We're delighted to be working with such an established British label. We've known Paul Birch (Managing Director, Revolver Records and Heavy Metal Records) for ten years or so, since the Xentrix days, so it was natural for us to speak to him about Hellfighter. We're looking forward to a successful partnership."

MD Paul Birch added: "Hellfighter are in the studio at the moment and the album is sounding killer, with strong elements of the thrash sound but also some of their wider influences thrown in. We're pleased to be bringing Hellfighter to a wider audience. The album is a priority release for us in 2010, and with Heavy Metal Records celebrating its 30th year we're confident Hellfighter will help to make it a memorable one for the label."

I was signed to Revolver in the late 90's. , it was a shocking set up back then. No advertising, no tour support. I'm not sure if the producer ever got paid.
I never saw any of the mechanical royalties either, I wonder what happened to them?
IMHO these guys would be better off pressing 1000 copies themselves and flogging them out of a suitcase at the gigs.
Of course things may have improved 10 years on. Either way good luck to the guys from Xentrix.
