HKP Welcomes Eigengrau

It gives us untold amounts of joy to announce our second official signing, the mighty Eigengrau from Sydney, Australia. Taking their stylings from esoteric and chaotic concepts of poetry torn from the twisted minds of the two members that comprise this dark amalgam, Ariadne Azazel and Skolopendra, they unite to bring us a dark descent reminiscent of the old gods of black metal. 

Welcome aboard, comrades-in-arms! Together we'll bring our war to those who would deny us our greatness!

Updates - Part VI

It has been awhile. Almost 2 years since I put HKP on hiatus due to lack of funds and other, more personal reasons. However, the winds have thus changed, and I'm planning to bring our organization back into the fray, now that I've managed to sequester some decent funding. However, things will be different this time around. Not so much with my typical release structure or business acumen. Instead, we will be releasing music in four various ways.

The first two, like we have always done, is releasing albums via limited release CD and cassette. It works, it makes for good collectors merch, and it gives the music that sound that is synonymous with the underground. Otherwise, we will start doing vinyl releases, even more limited than the cassette tapes. And they will be rarer, as it's more expensive to produce. And finally, we will offer induction into the HKP Bandcamp. Rates of sale will be negotiated between the label and the band, ov course, but mostly this will serve as a digital alternative to those who buy vinyl and cassette. And of course, we'll offer the ones who do do vinyl or cassette the opportunity to download the album, free of charge, as a digital backup.

That is all for now. Expect more soon.

Updates - Part V

It has been 3 months since the last release HKP had attempted. Less successful than I would have preferred it to be, I have henceforth decided that any future releases will have to go through extensive screening in order to deem them worthy for us to support. Understand this, everyone: this is a minor label, without infinite access to funds. Especially due to the current dryspell in interest and involvement, it is my responsibility now to screen out the leeches who release on multiple labels at once in order to massage their own egos and make sure that people true to the spirit ov the underground get signed.

Last year has taught me much about the differences between these two types ov bands. And it is evident to me that it is a problem, a growing one at that, that we must keep at bay, lest we watch as our beloved underground succumb to decay and stagnation. So, if I listen to your album and deem it worthwhile for HKP to invest in, please take it personally. You've earned it. However, if I screen your album and tell you HKP can't afford to release this for you, don't take it personally. HKP exists for the betterment ov our underground scene, a responsibility I take very seriously. It supports others who also adhere to this philosophy, such as Exalted Woe Records and Funereal Drone Recordings. Our goal is to get things back to the way they were in the early '90s, where one had to live the underground in order to be the underground. And we will succeed!
