Misanthropic Generation Media was the first to reply and interested to release it on dubtape. there are some deals that are cancelled but thanx to Bernd of Dunkelheit Prod for trusting us by releasing our album on CD. we also have a deal with Analog Ammunition Records for releasing it on pro-tape but its still on pressing level. yeah, both labels are very helpful. great professionalism, giving their best to promote this and always updates us with all pressing info and promotions. its an honour for us to be under such respective labels !!
