Submission + - How some musicians thrive in post-mp3 world (

Death Metal Maniac writes: "Our audience is so loyal that a record company would be more than happy to release an album because they know that they'll sell a guaranteed number – more than your top artists sometimes, who get paid millions and only sell 20,000 copies. There's three major record companies. We've been on all the three. Every one of them would be more than happy to do a Slayer record, and a lot of the stuff we do is like that: "Sure, we'll do that." We're fortunate for our hardcore loyal fans. Every record that we've had has at least gone Gold [sales of 500,000]. When we sell tickets for tours, we can pretty much guarantee how many people we'll have as a total number in audience."
