INCREDIBLY RARE CHARITY TEST PRESS AUCTION!!!!
This is the original #1 test pressing for Devil To Pay's critically-hailed fourth full-length album, Fate Is Your Muse. All proceeds from this auction will go to benefit Ed, the curator/leader of the popular underground music website, Doommantia.
Fate is Your Muse is
an introspective lyrical journey that careens from the metaphysical, to
the absurd, to the pragmatic (and back again), all set to bone crushing
heaviness wrapped in elaborate vocal melodies and elegant guitar
phrases. Exploring topics such as reincarnation, the end of days, and
the thin veil between reality and fantasy, the Indianapolis foursome
create a rare musical experience; one that will have heavy rock fans
returning for the primal emotional riffs, as well as the complex and
heady lyrical content.
Test pressing comes just as it did from the factory, in clear sleeve. No album cover. But it does include the poster that comes with the album.
For those unaware, Ed had been forced into homeless by a
medical condition but still manages to keep the Doommantia site viable online.
Ed suffered a series of heart attacks
that forced Ed to become unemployed. Those
events, plus the exorbitant cost of cardiac medications made paying the rent an
impossibility and he was evicted from his place in Aberdeen, Washington. Now
homeless, the doom and metal community has been rallying around his cause with
benefit concerts and a compilation of 39 heavy bands that all donated their
music to help Ed’s cause. "Doommantia Vol. 1”
Now Ripple Music offers their assistance to help a musical brother in need. After establishing an ongoing company policy of giving back to the community, Ripple Music has auctioned off some of their rarest test pressings to help the BP Spill Gulf Clean Up, Wounded Warriors, Sloan-Kettering Cancer Research, and Joplin Missouri Tornado Relief, amongst others. The auction of the extremely rare test press for Devil To Pay’s “Fate is Your Muse” will continue that tradition, offering heavy rock/doom fans a chance to get one of only two test-pressings ever to be released to the public.
