Perth based power metallers Silent Knight have been slugging away for a while now, and have decided that, whilst also offering a very affordable CD, to put their entire album up online for streaming. The band had this to say about the decision:
In a world of instant demand, music piracy & smartphones there is not a lot of money to be made from physical CD sales.
We are wanting to make our music as accessible as possible whilst still controlling the quality. Each track is uploaded individually, complete with lyrics, band links & purchase information.
Share the songs with your friends, get excited, get enthusiastic, get fanatic!
Bring mates to a show and sing until your lungs give out!
Become a fan in your own time, not when something is forced down your throat.
If you would like a real, high quality version of the CD they are only $9.99 and it enables to pay our studio bills and create new albums in the future. But we'll leave that part up to you. No pressure, its your decision
