Bud Metal Records and Avitas have signed an exclusive European distribution deal with PHD/Plastic Head Distribution (Plastichead.com) for the new black metal album "Northern Ghosts" on CD. The Northern Ghosts CD is releasing August 4/2014 through PHD exclusively for all of Europe, and worldwide as well, just ask your local metal shop that deals with PHD to special order it if you don't see it on the shelves. Limited to 300 copies.

For online orders here is the link: http://www.plastichead.com/catalogue.as ... BUDMCD1978

All of Avitas' currently available digital albums are now exclusively distributed by PHD/Plastic Head Media including Saga of the Nationalist, Northern Ghosts, and Politics of Nordic Terror: Live Rehearsals MMIII. Look for them on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, Amazon, etc.

Here are a few reviews of the Avitas Northern Ghosts album, raw black/war metal with a psychedelic edge.

Hi, it will be interesting to see how well they do for you.

I used to buy from PHD, wholesale, for my business. As an example, if a new Dimmu Borgir shirt was available, Play.com would sell it for about £11 including postage. If I wanted to buy it wholesale, my price was £7.99 + vat @ 20% = £9.58

I fear, your cd will get similar treatment. They are selling it retail for £11.50 and my complete guess is that the cd will be at least £7 or £8 wholesale
Only record shops will be able to afford to stock it as Metal distros will trade their stock for cheaper prices.

And this isn't aimed at PHD, as they are extremely professional, it's more of a view of how most major distributors operate.

When you deal with the big boys, that's the sort thing you are up against
