Merry X-Mas & a Happy New Year !!!!!

Dec 23rd, 2010

Dear friends and business partners,

although this year is ending with snow chaos, we can give a positive review about 2010 because we had some really good changes and many new ideas which lead us forwards positively.
Both the increase of our online promotion and the remolded event promotion (like e.g. 70000tons Metal Cruise, TSO, Iron Maiden Tour) make us more appropriate. In the radio / TV section we also revealed some possibilities. Our new digital sampling system is accepted well and the club service performs strongly.
SAOL has expanded its service, which delights more than 40 bands by now, and offers to self-determined artists a complete package from production to distribution and marketing up to tours! Artists like Kurdt Vanderhoof (Metal Church, Presto Ballet), DD Verni (Overkill, Bronx Casket Co.), Derrick Green (Sepultura, Musica Diablo), James Kottak (Scorpions, Kottak) and many more have realized those advantages already.
There have been found solutions for “difficult countries” like Great Britain and Poland etc. and the marketing and promotion possibilities have been expanded. Thanks to combined adverts we offer those capabilities to bands with little budget, too.
With JOKER’S BALL, a cooperation with the booking agency RedlionMusic, we can offer Europe-wide touring with manageable conditions. In addition to that we are increasing our booking section more and more.


In spring 2011 we will start a shop system for SAOL as well as for the bands and equip our websites with a new design and improved features.
The cmm promotion subjects all delighted us as well. The No.1 chart success of Iron Maiden and the awarding of the gold record for all their studio albums in the past years are just one highlight; we are looking forward to the tour in May with the signs already pointing to SOLD OUT.
Trans-Siberian Orchestra touring Europe – after a great success in the U.S. with our help – pleases us well.
Of course there were many other awesome subjects this year – not only concerning metal ;-) ) – enumerating them all would break the mold now.
We are going on christmas vacation now and in January we will join the “70000 tons Metal Cruise”, the first metal festival of it’s size on a cruise ship in the Carribean. But first we want to thank all business and media partners, artist and many more who helped and supported us: We wish you a peaceful and relaxing christmas and a well and successful year 2011!

In this spirit,
Wolfgang Rott and the whole cmm team

The cmm office is closed between December 23rd and January 2nd!
