As manager of Iron Maiden, I have known Wolfgang personally and professionally for 23 years. Both the band and myself have the greatest respect for the hard work, dedication and passion that he and his trusted CMM team have demonstrated during our longstanding working relationship and all the promotional initiatives and support they have given to Maiden down the years. We are extremely happy to be represented by CMM in Germany.
Manager IRON MAIDEN
For Heavy Metal artists times are in a change. Illegal downloads and new forms of exploitation of music hit the music market. As a result, small and new bands have a harder time finding a partner for commercial exploitation of their work. Willingness to take risks, but also investment opportunities of the record industry have decreased. In particular the young, upcoming artists are, more than ever, obliged to show self-reliance by placing themselves on the market at their own risk. Here is where SAOL offers an opportunity.
Since 1995 I have had the pleasure of being involved with Wolfgang and CMM. In an industry based on "what have you done for me lately", Overkill continues a two plus decade relationship and friendship, with a company that is in it "for the long haul". Here is to the promotion machine, Prost!
The SAOL business model was eminently right for us and a super important step on our way. We've always had all the freedom and made our own choices, on top of it we got best advice, professional promotion and decent marketing channels. And hard to believe: all of the guys and girls there are passionate music fans or even musicians themselves - what more could one want?
I have been working with Wolfgang and CMM for many years, and I intend to keep doing that. Class act and good people!

We have been working with Wolfgang Rott and CMM for over 20 years. There is no one else that we can count on to work as an extension of our company, to think out of the box and get the job done. They are the top of promotion company that everyone needs - The kind that never stops.

Having known and working on various projects with Wolfgang and his team at CMM for over 20 years, I have come to highly value not only his contacts and network, but especially his integrity, business ethics and in depth knowledge of the European and over all the German Hard Rock and Heavy Metal scene.

Since day one, CMM/SAOL have been nothing but wonderful to us, taking our album release and multi year plans and opening awesome doors overseas that we as a young American band couldn't reach on our own. Aside from being completely savvy about the current state of the industry, they're great people and we feel a genuine investment in our story and art. HIGHLY recommended - a joy to work with!
Working with CMM on SOAL has been incredible and very eye opening. After working with others, CMM has proven to be very professional delivering on their commitments and quite easy to work with. I recommend them to any band that wants industry experts to get them to their next stage of development.
