Just a note to mark the death of Seth Putnam. Seth was certainly a very controversial figure and because of his personal habits I would not consider him a role model, but he was still very influential in the extreme music scene. He is most known for his band Anal Cunt, but also well known in our music scene as being the front man for Vaginal Jesus.
ANAL CUNT’s publicist, Kim Kelly of Catharsis PR, has confirmed via Twitter that the band’s frontman, Seth Putnam, died earlier today (Saturday, June 11) of a suspected heart attack. He was 43 years old.
Commented Kelly: “Yes, it’s true. Seth Putnam, one of the most infamous musicians that extreme metal has ever seen, the grindcore GG Allin, has passed away due to a heart attack.
“I handled all the promotion for ANAL CUNT’s last album, ‘Fuckin’ A’, and Seth was always happy to oblige any request I sent his way. The band had been working on a new album before his passing, so chances are his musical career’s epitaph has yet to be inscribed.
“I want to remind everyone that no matter how outrageous and controversial his musical career has been, Seth was still a human being with friends and family that loved him. I’m hoping that the Internet will remember that. This is a very sad and trying time for those that knew him, and the last thing they need to see is an outpouring of message board hate. The man lived and died by his own rules; if anything, respect him for that.”
Label 56 has many projects we are working on and we need your help. As with any Independent distro, what we do is only made possible by the support we get from our customers. From now until the end of July we are asking everyone who supports us to make just one purchase of $10. This can be for any item at all (cd, shirt, etc) in our catalog and we have made a $10 ordering button you can use in our catalog. Any items marked less than $10 can be ordered 2 for $10. For example- you can order a 7″ vinyl and any cd marked less than $10, two $8 cd`s for $10, etc. There are over 400 people on our facebook, if everyone was to make a $10 purchase we would be able to do a lot of what we want. If everyone who reads this would make a $10 purchase we would be able to really help push our Independent Music Scene in some very nice ways. Help support Label 56 so we can help support the Bands and the Music Scene!! Please pass this message on and repost to forums.
Thanks, Label 56

I have seen posts online for a new Kroda cd, however there are two different names and covers for this cd that I am finding and I cannot find any real info on either. So anyway, Ukraine Pagan/ Folk metal band Kroda definitely have a new cd out. Whether the name is Chornotrop or Schwarzpfad is unknown to me. Perhaps one of our readers can clear this up.
