Kaotoxin Records has announced that the sales from Lugubrious Valedictory, the brand new digital single from funeral doom act EYE OF SOLITUDE, will be donated to support victims of last month’s fire at Bucharest’s Colectiv club.

“Lugubrious Valedictory” is now available at: 

www.kaotoxin.com/shop/eye-of-solitude-lugubrious-valedictory-digital/

The following message from Kaotoxin Records details charity single’s release:

During the night of October 30, 32 people were killed and 179 wounded at a Metal gig at Colectiv club in Bucharest, Romania. The fire, the worst such incident in Romania in the last 20  years, occurred during a free Metal concert when the band’s pyrotechnics comprising of sparkler firework candles ignited the club’s flammable polyurethane acoustic foam, and the fire expanded very quickly. Most of the victims were poisoned with toxins released from the burning foam.

It’s no secret that both KAOTOXIN and EYE OF SOLITUDE have links with Romania. Kaotoxin staff member, DJ and host of KaosCast Radu C. was born in Romania and we’ve visited the country with him twice, making new friends each time. EYE OF SOLITUDE‘s mainman, Daniel N., was born in Romania too, and has strong connections with the Romanian scene having spent years in the country, played in many Romanian bands and still playing Romanian gigs as often as possible.

Right after the tragedy, Daniel N. decided EYE OF SOLITUDE would release a digital single to raise funds for the families of the ones who sadly perished in this tragic event.

_________________________

Here’s a message from Daniel N. :

This goes out to every Metalhead around: we in EYE OF SOLITUDE would like to show our support and solidarity to the victims in the Colectiv club fire and their families. Amongst them there were old friends, people who have fought to rescue those trapped inside that burning inferno; heroes who now have left behind devastated families, wives, husbands, sons and daughters.

This isn’t media bullshit; this is a wake up and a call to solidarity. This is a moment when everyone should turn their heads around and try to imagine the living Hell these heroes went through to save others. We would like to appeal to all of you guys and help us help the families in those in need right now.

With this charity release we hope to collect as much as possible from you guys and send the money directly to the families of those who perished Friday October 30th, 2015 night. Please remember, brothers and sisters, we are all in the same community, let’s all please be united and supportive. Please remember these people were loving wives, husbands, fathers, mothers, sons, daughters; dear friends… Let’s please do something!

Thank you.

_________________________

All of the proceeds raised from digital sales of the “Lugubrious Valedictory” single, which features a previously unreleased 13+ minute song specially composed and recorded for this charity release, will go directly to EYE OF SOLITUDE who will make sure fans support reaches the ones in need directly.

You can also visit Fundatia Estuar’s donation platform and Facebook page. This is an official non-profit organization from Romania which collects funds for the families of the tragedy’s victims.

CORPRIT CONVICT – Convicts Take Over Children’s Charities; Debut Album “Come Clean” Available Now

Kentucky-based, heavy metal band Corprit Convict is partnering with Kosair Children’s Charity and the Ronald McDonald House, in an effort to raise money for the children’s hospital and family-housing facilities.

On May 9, 2014, the female-fronted-foursome will be headlining a show at Phoenix Hill Tavern in Louisville, Kentucky, starting at 9:00 pm. All proceeds earned by the band for that show will go to support both charities.

On April 22, 2014, the band released their debut, Come Clean, with a portion of the album sales also going to support both charities.

KT (singer) and Evan (drummer) have a deep, personal connection with both charities. “Our son, Hayden, spent the first 4 weeks of his life at Kosair before he passed away 3 months later. The nurses there took excellent care of our boy and they were just amazing all around. I’m so happy we can finally give something back,” – KT.

Kosair Childrens’ Hospital is Kentucky’s only full-service, free-standing pediatric care facility dedicated exclusively to caring for children and is an advocate for the health and well-being of all children.

Ronald McDonald House Charities is a place families of seriously ill children call home during crisis and uncertainty. Since opening their doors, they have helped more than 70,000 family members from all 50 states and several international locations. Since opening their doors 30 years ago, they have given more than $1,000,000 in grants to organizations that support children.

“When you get a metal band, like Corprit Convict, you get a taste of what Reverbnation says is #1 in that genre….Starting from a 2 piece garage band to a high-ranking group is no small feat….No matter what, you should definitely be able to notice the potential these guys have.”

– Daniel Morrison, CEO, Hip Rock Magazine

As reported on The Official Ronnie James Dio Fan Page Facebook:

FROM WENDY DIO:

Dear Friends,

As you all know, Ronnie and I have always been animal lovers and our favorite charity is The Brittany Foundation, as 100% of the monies raised goes to feed and house the dogs. Some of you may remember that three years ago, I spent a Day in Their Paws in a cage with two adorable dogs, trying to raise money and get them adopted. This was one of the last public appearances Ronnie made before his untimely passing.

This year I am going in the cage again with Timka and Tramp to raise money for The Brittany Foundation. I stay in the cage for 24 hours or until I have raised the money for freedom. It costs a dollar a minute for my freedom. I am asking for your help.

Please go to http://www.brittanyfoundationonline.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=48&Itemid=67 and scroll down to my picture with Timka and Tramp, and click the button to donate. We would love to see any of you that would like to join us.

I would like to say a big “thank you” to you all, and as Ronnie would say, “You Rock!”

Wendy Dio
