Help with signing to a label?
My band and I have recently recorded a new EP and were considering sending it to labels.
My question is should we send it to labels? It was recorded in a professional studio so both the production and playing are perfect on it. Its very heavy blackened death metal. Weve heard that sending your demo to a label limits your say in the deal, so is it really worth it? Sending it in means the label actually hears it, whereas you could be waiting years for anyone in any label to hear it by chance. I know some bands get picked up by labels but the chances of that happening are very small. So is it a good idea to send your demo to the label, instead of waiting for them to just come across it online, or seeing the band play?
