Crematory - Threaten To End Band After Low CDs, Ticket Sales


German gothic metallers Crematory have called out their "lazy" fans for not buying tickets to the band's upcoming tour in support of the new album, Oblivion, and have threatened to break up unless "metalheads start honoring the value of real music and come back to spending money on artists' physical product."

Drummer Markus Jüllich made the desperate plea: "The end of Crematory? Will Oblivion be the last studio album and the tour in May the final one?

Crematory's new studio album Oblivion will be released on Friday, the 13.4.2018. We were planning to promote the album with a tour, starting at the 27.4.18 and running through all of May in Germany.

That will only happen, have you fans get off your lazy asses and start buying tickets for the announced shows. The presales are horrible and we will cancel the tour completely, if the numbers don't increase radically.

The most important thing is, that you buy our new CD and double vinyl edition, cause when I look at our sales statistics I could start throwing up! Nowadays we are selling way more downloads and streams then we sell the original products, and this will be the death for all bands, cause you hardly get any money from this shit compared to the CD compensation. So as a matter of fact, a band will hardly make enough money to put a good sounding album on the market.

The worst is, that streaming on iTunes, Spotify, Deezer, Napster and all the other bullshit platforms doesn't pay out for the band at all. Our last album Monument had 1,5 million streams and we don't even sell 1% of that in original vinyl or CD products.

This can't go on like this anymore! Its not only Crematory who is suffering from all that, but only we have the balls to stand up and tell you the truth. Wake up you Metalheads and start honoring the value of real music and come back to buying the products. We don't want music just getting wasted and being stored on harddrives, usb-sticks, sd cards in miserable mp3 quality.

We hope you understand how important that is to us. Because of this, we will give you something special with the new album Oblivion, so you think twice before you buy the shitty download or the even worse stream.

Every CD and vinyl LP comes with a 10 € merchandise voucher, that you can use on our concerts, or in our merchandise-shop at the Crematory website. That makes every CD or LP including the voucher even cheaper than a download and you get a great digipack with booklet, lyrics, pictures and poster.

So, please dear fans, buy CD's and LP's and forget the downloads, cause otherwise there won't be another Crematory album. Don't make Oblivion the final album and give us your support on the tour. Start buying tickets now, so we can have great shows together. Even after 27 years of Crematory we are still hungry to keep going, but all that is in your hands. Believe in you and especially in Crematory!

I wonder if they actually thought this was a smart move to get people to talk about the new album? Bad publicity is still publicity and all. Crazy tactics.

I also thought this could be the case. But then again, they released a new song/video today. And hell it's so shitty you won't be able to save this with all the publicity in the world.

It is shitty, but nothing beats the shittyness of their videos from Antiserum, particularly the one for Kommt Näher. Awful.

I'll try to decipher:

"I think bands, especially the South American and Brazilian ones, should post their news in English because everybody can speak and understand it. Crematory should do the same and stop posting on Facebook in German. Eastern and Central European bands as well as Slavic speaking ones should also post news in English.

"Crematory's posts are often in German even though they are addressed to the international metal community. The band has fans from the 90s when their music was good, but these fans have now grown older and they have other obligations such as family, work, kids, extra-marital affairs and they also like going on fishing trips, so not enough money left to spend on music. The younger generation is not so keen on Crematory's style of music, hence the drop in sales. What can I say, it's a sign of the times."

I hope it makes more sense now

Translated or not, it's still bullshit.
Bands should be allowed to post any messages in their native language.
If you're too lazy or refuse to hit the "translate" on FB or copy the text to google translate you're probably more an ignorant fool than the band who refuses to post in English.

For your information..
English is only the 3rd most spoken language in the world.
1 = Chinese, 2 = Spanish.

And as for the Slavic (or German) languages.
We don't have to subject to the English language either.

You don't seem to be so bright yourself, since you have replied to the wrong post. You should quote Bad English instead of me, I personally couldn't care less about either Crematory or the language they use for their posts.

I like Crematory, but asking people to pay more when they could pay less is simply irrational, economically speaking.
Times change, if you don't adapt, you will die out. Maybe the music industry, specially niches like metal, need to rebuild their strategy. I hope they survive this crisis, but the world is not over if they break up.

No confirmation from the band yet.

I think the tour is on. Just saw a post on Facebook page which is 19 hrs ago, urging fans to decide the set list.

I still remember many,many years ago the soul-touching impact of a "Tears of Time" video that made me rewatch it if not thousands,then hundreds of times at least up to this day..I highly doubt i will ever have motivation to watch "Kommt Naher","Missunderstood" or "Shadowmaker" for the second time...I love their music,even their newer albums have some decent songs,but the decline in quality is clear as day,and of course their statement and behavior isnt gonna help at all. Rather then anger i feel only sadness for one of the most original gothic/industrial band to walk this music road for the last few years..Last year my sister chose for her wedding dance "Perils of the wind",so yeah,thats how much we both love Crematory,but i wonder if they can ever recover and make songs like Unspoken,Fly,Moonlight,Lost in Myself etc again..
