I was looking into these, there are plenty of music distributors and Im not sure which one is good. Can you tell me anything about them\link to someone who does?
I would check in with CDbaby.com.  They can easily and inexpensively help you get your music on Amazon, I-Tunes, and everywhere else you want it to be.  Reverbnation.com is a great way to get your music heard, mostly by other musicians...also...RadioAirPlay.com  It's kind of like Pandora...except you have to pay for them to play your music...but people all over the world can then hear it and it isn't very expensive.  Definitely worth checking into.
When people like your song they can click a Fan button...also you can link to a Buy Now to where ever you want them to go in order to purchase your songs.

Hail Valentin!  Good composition, great phrasing in your solo!  Keep up the good work brother!  And don't forget to click where I tell you not to, to listen so a bit of my own music. :gun:

Thanks man! Glad you liked it. Tried listening to your music on the site but the site is pretty buggy and the track kept pausing after 1 or 2 secs. Do you have your music anywhere else (Youtube, Soundcloud or something)?

I have always been a huge fan of heavy metal instrumentals ever since Orion. I am also a huge fan of multi-lead guitar parts, so your song is right up my listening alley. It was great!

Hey, if you ever want someone to add drums to any of your recordings, I have an electric kit/ProTools, and would love to collaborate. Here is a video example of my general drumming ability:



And a recording of a heavy metal instrumental of my own, one heavy metal instrumental lover to the other:



Hope to see more of your songs, and maybe play with you in the future.

You know, I'd never even thought to click that link until you pointed it out. Really great sound! Reminds me of old Megadeth kind of.

I personally think Oversword should put together another band or get part of his old one back together ... Of course, he never listens to me--but he should! LOL. :P

And exactly which part of the old band do you recomend I collaborate with, Dogboy or or the guy that works nights and weekends?

See I do listen to you, I just don't pay much attention :whistle:

Hey everyone, I have some exciting news! Apocalyptic Visions is live since yesterday on CdBaby and Itunes and will soon make it to other music services(such as Spotify, Shazam and many others). Its my first track ever to get such distribution, just wanted to share my excitement :D

Did that already actually, but they want me to pay just to have my stuff played and only give 10 free plays a week.

Right..it isn't free...but...you get a lot of exposure from people all over the world.  In reality though...I'm thinking it probably isn't worth it...people are just not prone to buy a song...unless they hear it on the 'real' radio.  But if you goal is to have a lot of different people hear your music...that is one venue.  You cannot pay Pandora to play your music...but you can pay these guys and you then have an audience you never had before.
