Returning to the ring after a seven year hiatus that included two Pink Punk albums, legendary British Rap Metal band One Minute Silence have reformed with new drummer Martin Davies and are in the process of mixing the “Fragmented Armageddon EP” exclusively on Pledge Music.
As well as writing new material, the band have been returning to classic OMS tracks and B-Sides they never got round to playing live. Yap: “Initially I wasn’t sure if the energy and punch that we had would still be there but when we got in the rehearsal room together there was no denying it – in fact it’s stronger than it ever was”.
Massy: “Pledge Music has allowed our fans to put us back in the studio to make a live recording – you buy the CD, DVD, vinyl, t-shirt and so on and the money raised helps us pay for the studio, the design, the manufacture and distribution – the fans bring us back to life, what a great set up! It’s the power of the internet put to the best use possible.”
Glen: “We wanted to make these recordings on our own terms, for us and for the fans with no other labels involved and we also wanted to invite some of the fans to the recording – so every purchase made on Pledge Music enters your email into a lottery and we’ll pick 50 people randomly and ask them to join us in the studio for the recording”.
