cmm was founded in 1989 by Wolfgang Rott in sole proprietorship. The firm quickly evolved into being number one for Heavy Metal and Rock promotion in Germany. Today the company performs as a full-service agency with a worldwide base of customers.
Despite dramatic changes in the music business, the cmm gmbh (‘gmbh’ for Limited) stays a reliable partner. With success, bands trust cmm, as for instance Iron Maiden with Germany-wide promotion for over a decade now.
In the segments consulting and management, bands such as Overkill, Trouble and Presto Ballet profit from the know-how of cmm gmbh.
Event promotion, like for the first taking place of the 70.000 Tons Of Metal and the Barge To Hell cruise, the Metalfest Croatia and the Punk Rock Holiday Serbia or Trans-Siberian Orchestra‘s very first European tour, completes the available service package.
An interesting new field is cross marketing: we advise and guide companies in various branches of business to benefit from synergies with music biz. The alliance of brand (or product) and music can build a bridge of emotions that’s worth crossing for both sides.
In 2008 we powered up SAOL (Service for Artist Owned Labels), the pioneering home for labels and artists who need marketing and promotion. Famous artists such as James Kottak (drummer for Scorpions) or Derrick Green (Sepultura) have already released albums by their own projects through SAOL.
