November 9, 2007, 10 years ago
Energy Music/Metallic Films Productions have issued an update regarding the new full length feature documentary Behind The Suit and Tie. The film is an all-access backstage pass to the inner most workings of the heavy metal recording industry, revealing what lays behind the suit and tie.
Pulling no punches and featuring some of the prime movers in the industry, Behind The Suit And Tie unveils the mystique which surrounds 'the music biz' and addresses tough questions about the industry's present and future through a series of interviews with players from both the indie and major labels. Among the those included are Al Dawson of Earache Records, Pat Egan of Relapse Records, Century Media, JC from The End Records, Mark Nawara of Crash Music, Gary Susalis of Music Choice, ex-MEGADETH and current F5 bassist David Ellefson, OVERKILL guitarist Dave Linsk, Demolition Records, Heavy Artillery and Moshpit Tragedy Records. More labels and artists are subjected to be added.
JR/Producer, Energy Music comments: "This film is not going to be your ordinary music documentary. We will deliver a strong message through out the 'Heavy Metal' community to show you what is fact and what is fiction. We started full production on October 27th and had the privilege to sit down with bassist David Ellefson of F5 at the Millennium Hotel in NYC during the Bass Player Live Expo 07. Dave is simply first rate! Interviews then followed with Al Dawson of Earache Records and Gary Susalis of Music Choice. We have previewed the footage and it looks great. We will start shooting again in NYC in late November before heading out to LA. We are also calling on fans in the NY/NJ area that will be attending show to give some insights regarding the music business."
John JC Cariaso, The End Records comments: "Hopefully Behind The Suit And Tie will be able to showcase the truth of how the music industry is being affected by the downward spiral of CD sales and how new and up and coming artists must learn to adjust to changing times."
