now, i am just going to be a prick

so now Victory’s bands are sending people to harass me.

like it wasn't enough they use some cease and desist scare tactic yesterday on me, but now kids are coming to me from EVERYWHERE because these bands bitched to their label to make a fucking news post about it.

i was actually going to take the shit down, but fuck it. this is bullshit harassment. this is way out of control, i am way too far from home, and i just don't need this anymore. and frankly i don't care. maybe I will just go to mexico.

here's all the stuff you want, Victory. listen and enjoy courtesy my blog oh yeah and the cheque is in the mail.

*i took these down*

you delete them.

you obviously have no musical background and don't know how difficult it is to actually be on tour for half of the year and sell records. all of these bands are hard working and don't deserve this.

please, go fuck yourself you piece of shit.

HAHAHA suck on that!!! That's what you get for stealing music!!! i hope they sue your ass into the ground!!! Wait until it comes out, buy it, and support the bands. And yes, you are a prick!

Seriously?
You're going to get sued so you can look like a bad ass because you 'stuck it to the man?'
You're a fucking idiot dude.
You obviously don't know anything about Victory Records.
If they say they're going to sue you, they're going to sue you.
You're very dumb to think it's a 'scare tactic.'
Stop trying to act hard and take the stuff down.
It's not fair anyway.

It's called being RESPONSIBLE for your actions....own up to it, you were asked in a respectable manner to stop but you took the arrogant way and continued to do whatever...the Bands and the label are not at fault here.....look in the mirror, take a step forward towards maturity and correct the situation and try using real words instead of curse words all the time, you may actually feel better about when its all said and done instead of the angst you have caused yourself.

Why didn't you include The Tossers? They're the only band on that label that doesn't look like they would just love to wrap their soft pouty lips around some dick!

My bad, Glowskulls are cool too.

BandRescue said...

Refusing to respect copyright laws and the wishes of the bands and label is plain rude. These bands work so hard to be able to tour and play music for people that by and large appreciate it. What gives you the right to decide the public gets to hear music before it is due to release that doesn't belong to you? Karma is a bad thing dude...you'll probably end up being deaf long before your time is up. Everyone makes a mistake now and then...it's how you handle it once you realize it that matters most.

Bryan said...

the irony is all these people bitching you out...i can almost guarantee maybe only a tenth of them, if that, will actually even buy the album and support them.

and the thing is bands make almost little to no money off of cd sales. for bands like these its more profitable to have more people download your music and then come to a show and buy a shirt...but that would hurt the record label

so no wonder victory records is throwing a pissy fit

As an information pirate let me just say, No one that pirates ever had any intention of paying for your product.
You don't lose money from piracy, you gain listeners.

I play in a band, but I also maintain a full-time job to support myself. All these people seem to think they should make more money for being emo than someone who slaves on a factory floor.

"WAAAH, I had to travel across 2 states in a van, life is sooo hard!"

If this is really bothering tou guys so much, than just write a whiny emo song about it and make more money you didn't work for.

"You should listen to real bands that don't get their panties in a wad over Myspace affairs. You're making their guyliner run." That's perfect, fuck these bands.... a couple years ago they couldn't even give away a copy of their cd and now cause they have Victory backing them they are tough? It's like that bitch in school that would tell the teacher on you if you we're passing notes. Grow up downloading is a fact of life....deal with it. As for victory.....They should have folded as a company in 1997 when they decided to start signing any shit band with womans hair and a friend at the label......sell outs!

Stadiou said...

You have no clue about music. Period. You don't understand the peril the industry is in. Sales are down more than ever, and while piracy can not be stopped, it's absurd that you would think it is your right to give away someone else's music. It'd be pretty awesome to see the look on your face if someone could take a part of your paycheck every week because they just felt it was appropriate.

So let's be realistic. You're doing this to be a douche. You don't care about the artists, you don't support the music you're posting, and you have no idea what it's like to live in a van for 8 months hoping to sell a couple extra cd's so that you can eat something that's not fast food. I'm not saying every band rocks or every band works so hard, but when a label spends $30,000 to make a 10 song record and you take a song and give it away and think that's your right, who the fuck are you? You don't understand the hard work that goes into even the shittiest song.

Who am I to judge you? Well for starters, I am one of many others who can see how much of a prick you are just by your arrogant statements. But I am also someone who produced one of these stolen songs that you ripped off. I spent more than 5 weeks working on this cd and I understand what goes into it. I make my living doing this. When the industry does poorly, I do poorly. I bust my ass for these bands because they are great guys making music together. I want them to succeed because their success reflects on me. I wish I could hinder your line of work to see how you enjoyed it.

So let's face it, you're being asked to take the music down because what you are doing is wrong. They're not harassing you to prove a point. You're the one thinking you're cool and trying to prove a point. The real point is, you're not cool. You're scum. You should be sued. You would lose the case. Why? Because you're wrong. And you know you're wrong... you just want to look like a badass.

Here's something badass to try and do- go write an album that has any of the balls or power of any of the artists you're purposely fucking. Good luck. I bet you can't even tune a guitar.

WOW DUDE, THIS IS HOW I FEEL ABOUT VICTORY. FUCK THEM, I MEAN, I LIKE ALOT OF THEIR ARTISTS BUT AS FAR AS THEIR ATTORNEY AND THE OWNER GO, THEY DESERVE TO BE FUCKED IN THE ASS A FEW TIMES. AND ON THEIR WEBSITE THEY SAY "Thanks to those that truly support our artists and their wishes." HOW CAN THEY SAY THAT WHEN THEY DONT EVEN FUCKING PAY THEIR ARTISTS ROYALTIES. JUST LOOK AT THEIR RECORD, EVERY BAND THEYVE HAD THAT GOT BIG THEY FUCKED OVER LIKE, TAKING BACK SUNDAY, THURSDAY, ATREYU, AND NOW HAWTHORNE HEIGHTS. WHO'S NEXT? ARE THEY GONNA FUCK OVER SILVERSTEIN, THEN AIDEN, THEN BAYSIDE, THEN THE AUDITION AND SO ON.

AND HERES HOW I FEEL ABOUT ACROSS FIVE APRILS. I DOWNLOADED THE LEAKED VERSION OF THEIR NEW ALBUM, AND I FUCKING DELETED IT A FEW DAYS LATER BECAUSE IT WAS SO FUCKING BAD. WHY ARE THEY COMPLAINING, ITS NOT LIKE THAT ALBUM WILL SELL 1,000,000 COPIES. AND THE BEST THING IS THAT THEY PROBLY THINK VICTORY WILL PAY THEM ROYALTIES, BUT GUESS WHAT ACROSS 5APRILS? VICTORY IS GONNA FUCK YOU OVER IN THE END.

THE ONLY THING I CAN SUPPORT THE BANDS ON IS THE FACT THAT THEY WORKED HARD TO GET WHERE THEY ARE AND SHOULD BE RESPECTED AND RECOGNIZED IN SOME WAY, BUT VICTORY THINKS THAT NAGGING THIS KID CUZ HE LEAKED A FEW SONGS EARLY IS GONNA HELP THE SITUATION BUT IT DEFINITELY MADE IT WORSE. IF I DIDNT HERE VICTORY AND ACROSS FIVE APRILS COMPLAINING ABOUT THE LEAK I WOULDNT EVEN HAVE FUCKING KNOWN IT LEAKED EARLY. MOST BANDS THESE DAYS WHO ACTUALLY CARE ABOUT THE LOVE OF PLAYING MUSIC FOR A LIVING AND NOT WORRYING IF SOME KID LEAKED THEIR ALBUM DONT EVEN CARE ABOUT DOWNLOADING OR THEIR ALBUM LEAKING BECAUSE THEY KNOW IT CANT BE STOPPED. SOME BANDS ALSO DONT CARE CUZ THEY SORT OF WANT SOME KIDS TO DOWNLOAD AND LISTEN TO THEM TO BECOME A FAN SO THEY CAN CATCH THEM AT A SHOW AND BUY MERCH. IM DONE.(sorry for the caps i didnt realize till after i was finished)

Incidently, the previous poster hit the nail on the head with what's wrong with music today. $30,000 dollars was spent to make just one of these horribly uninteresting emo albums. The Misfits best album cost less that 1,000.

I guess auto-tune and pro-tools are expensive, eh.

I have heard better albums recorded at $50 per song.

Yeah, I'm definitely downloading these albums but at least I'll wait till they're actually released.

You put up shit that was unreleased and the bands didn't need you to steal their music at a date that was before the actual release date.

You could've found a better way to "promote" these artists and I agree that record sales do shit as far as band revenue goes but you shouldn't have been such a douche and say "FUCK YOU VICTORY RECORDS I'M GOING TO KEEP THIS SHIT UP!"

To be honest, this is almost as bad as the whole Mass Effect videogame scandal where the player apparently chooses what kind of alien to sodomize.

The bands told Victory to send the guy the letter after they asked him nicely to remove the material. Victory was probably more than happy with the free publicity as they give out tons of samplers anyway. Other labels are so fucking cheap. That is probably why Victory sells more than the rest of them. They are aggressive when it comes to pushing their bands. Raybeez RIP

lizardtennis said...

Hey,
ok, so a lotata people gettin on ur ass for this, but geuss wat, i could rlly care less, but u should learn wat bands go thru to even get their name out and make a living. u think they get money playing shows? trust me, they no people dl their music, and some dont care, but some bands get gas (they have those veggie cars) from chinnese restraunts. These people rely on a talent, like music, to make money.

They do not just go out and play, look at them, dead to fall or w/e, they r fukin puny, almost no1 rlly nos them, so im just saying that u should respect them bc they do work hard to get wear they r now thru hard work and commitment. But yea, just think of wat u did, and dont think ur all that, id recomend just take it off, not many people care that, much, they can wait 11 more days, and dl it on limewire. so dude, if u dont, w/e way to b a dick thats about to loose more money than hes made in his life, but just take it off and ull b fine.

later dude, w/e u do hope the best.

A cease and desist letter is standard practice before you are sued. Best thing to do is simply delete the material and move on. That, most likely, will be the end of it. However, if after receiving the notification, you continue. Then they have to decide whether or not it is worth it to them to file a claim.

All I know is Victory Records lately HAS lot bands...they are out there to get bands big anyway..and someone said that this band that was up wasn't even heard of before so why not let them get publicity?


This reminds me of that Napster shit when Matellica decided to sue thousands of fans.

Hm...People are pretty dumb.

Don't know too much about this story, however to the legal stand point, it will became a huge annoying long drawn out process.

Goodluck kid.

NWMUSICIAN said...

The funny thing about all of this is the mentality in music is completely fucked.

Bands say it is their "full time job" to play music? WHY IS IT YOUR FULL TIME JOB!?!

Yah, let's live in our parent's house , not have a job whatsoever, and DEPEND on our albums sales to support us when the label gets at least half (if not more) of each album we sell at $20 a CD.

GENIUS!!! IT'S BOUND TO WORK!!!

Play music because you love to play music, not for the damn money. Play music because you want other people to ENJOY your music with you. That is better than any paycheck you can get.

They almost broke up as a band only two years after they formed because of that label.


and well these bands pretty much blow and will most likely make more money off the publicity of this than anything.

this is funny how everyone is able to critisize that only one guy who stole a bunch of songs or video. how many of you can clearly say to himself "ive never download any songs at all. ive never listen freely to a downloaded song."

since napster, every single person who posses a computer downloaded a song. this is just the way it work now!

sorry to say that, and i dont approve whats been done on "Lonesome Traveller", but downloading is the new reality. now stop fucking around with one simple guy and try to change things where it should be changed.

Why are you doing this to yourself? I think you are just making the situation worse.

You are extremely arrogant! You have been asked by the bands and their label to stop illegal downloads and you refuse because they have asked us to tell you what we think of your attitude. It's time like these that I wish there were concrete laws to punish people like you.

Maybe you see the issue more clearly looking through the bars of a jail cell.

Oh and by the way, I am not a kid. And I don't like having to pay more for my music because of idiots like you.

i'm not sure exactly why they are mad. i hope everyone realizes that if you can stream music online, it's publicly available to be downloaded- even through a player like VictorStream, Purevolume or Myspace.

all they can do is send a cease a desist to anyone hosting the files on their web site. if the host receives it, they should take it down.

if you are in canada, you are probably even better off than someone in the US dealing with it.

look at details regarding the digital millennium copyright act.

there was a similar situation with the web site myspacemp3.com that was recently taken down. but he posted instructions for people showing them how to do what he did.

i recommend you do the same.

those bands are terrible anyways. it's one song- who cares, can't we just import it from whatever lame ass compilation victory will put out this month?

I just want to let you know that you are totally fucking awesome. I love you. Victory Records treats their artists like utter shit, and then they expect to (and do) get away with this bullshit.

Even in the face of a stupid ass C&D you have the balls to put up Rapidshares. You are seriously fucking amazing.

Also, all of you pricks that think that this guy is "taking money" from these bands that work as hard as they do to make a living, you're idiots. Victory screws these bands out of way more money than they'll ever lose on some small blog that posts Rapidshare links. Tony Brummel is a total douchebag who seriously deserves to be convicted to the full of the law for some of the shit he's done.

See here

Plus, even if I wanted any of this music (which I might; it's not all completely horrible), advance copies in high quality MP3 (and many times FLAC) is available on multiple public and private bittorrent trackers, IRC, Direct Connect, FTP, and Usenet all over the internet. It's not like this blog is the only place on the planet you can find this stuff.

As a few have said, those of you who are attacking Mr. Xavier here are fucking tools. Get you head out of your asshole, look around, and realize that Victory blows and prerelease is everywhere and will always be everywhere.

FUCK YEAH!!!
Tell Victory to lick your balls. Great label and great bands....but...Come on. Someday music will be free and labels will die. It is the natural progression of music. Besides, bands dont make any $ off record sales....labels do. So tell Victory to stop pinching pennies and start making music that will last instead of disposable bullshit!

Anonymous said...

sigloiv i totally agree. All he did was put up ONE song that was already on their myspace and wasnt even cd quality so why would be people use it for any other purpose then to liten to it without going online and then when the cd comes out get the better quality. For the videos, that is bullshit too. If the bands like dead to fall didnt want their lives song being on the interent they should not have played it but i guess its more victory who is pissed then dead to fall cause those guys kick ass. So right on man keep doin your thing. Its just funny that they fuel the piracy they try so hard to get rid of by doing their 100 and something advances to random people who are not even in the music industry and will obviously put it up online the minute they get it. So they should stop worrying about the one song and realize its their fault in the first place. The full advances are also probably out on most ircs and torrents like our good friend said.
