We’ve covered some heavy ground already with the first 3 compilations here in TheCage™. Already we have collections from RI, MA, and CT. We’ve heard both new and old stuff from bands, some together some long disbanded. We have heard from solo projects to six piece bands and from just about every flavor of Metal you can think of.

We’ll now move north and begin to accept submissions from New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine. The idea to bring these states together in no way lessons their individual standing, it is in the hope to bring more bands into the spotlight, quicker. The album titled, “Mountain Metal Compilation” will be available as a FREE DOWNLOAD/STREAM and will be used as a promotional tool. Mountain Metal Compilation should be out in June 2014 via TheCage™ NetLabel and BandCamp.
