The project is still open for 35 more days, so you can still back it and receive various rewards if you feel so inclined. I've never been a particularly big Obituary fan, but I think it's cool that they were able to successfully fund this in such a short period of time.

Honestly I am done with KS as far as MUSIC goes. The new Misery Signals was a let down for me and pretty much no matter what Protest the Hero does now I doubt it will appeal to me. Both made a fuckton of $ and both are going to end up distributing everything through a label anyways. It's sort of a betrayal because the whole idea behind these crowdfunding sites is DIY everything. Obituary probably doesn't even have it in them to make another classic DM album.

Not that I really know anything about death metal, but isn't Obituary fucking HUGE and not to mention signed? Why the hell do they need a Kickstarter?

They're assholes that make shitty music (but get paid to do it anyway) and want to make even more.

Haven't used KS yet, and Obituary aren't gonna be the band who convinces me.

Pretty spot-on comment, but if you think about it unless it's a collaboration involving established musicians, the kickstarter model just isn't really feasible for new or unknown bands.

Also, I give Obituary credit for keeping it simple and only asking for 10,000 dollars and then setting up a lot of additional things for the extra money they've already gotten and will likely get by the end of this.

The only kickstarter I've ever supported is Clad in Darkness and that's because I love those dudes. Plus they only asked for like 900 dollars which is completely reasonable for self producing an album.

Clad in Darkness just sounds like a band I would be into.

Yeah, Clad In Darkness are pretty good. I've known their guitarist, Coy, for a bit more than 10 years now. We used to be regulars on the official Opeth forum, and I finally got around to seeing them/meeting Coy a few times a couple years ago.

Also, I've done a few kickstarters/other sites that do the same thing, but I don't even remember which ones right now. The only music related one I was going to do, but forgot to do for some reason, was the Putrid Pile one. He wasn't doing it for his band, he was just offering a ton of Putrid Pile stuff to get money to help his girlfriend that got cancer.

Yeah I've known Coy for a long time too. We touched dicks over the whole Westvleteren XII beer fiasco last year.

The only good thing that comes out of this is you get stuff at least. Some bands have pretty decent merch packs etc. It is ridiculous when some people set up a KS when they have money. Like Oli Sykes doing one for his comic book. Last I checked he was worth $1.4 million.

I don't know why so many of you hate that Obituary has done a kickstarter. Most record labels don't give bands very good deals, so I can completely understand why Obituary would want to produce an album without getting involved with a record label again.

Personally I'm not the biggest fan of them. I only two albums and neither album has really amazed me. I like a few songs but I am in no rush to check out their other albums.

Well obviously they don't need the money to make a record and they could release it independently from a record label and I'm sure everyone who jumped on this kickstarter would have bought it.
