Yeah man, when I just started in the music business I was working in Rock Promotion at Elektra Records, we had Motograter on the label, also had Pantera, Metallica and AC/DC...
I've always been into Metal and Rock N Roll..... If you guys like Metalcore, you should check out the band Bring Me The Horizon. It's the Future of METAL!!!
When I worked for Atlantic, all those bands except for Metallica were under Atco, a subsidiary of Atlantic. I left around the time that Atco was merged into East West. I didn't realize until now that all those bands were moved into Elektra (and now back into Atlantic). Just a fluid industry.
In the spirit of Time Warner bands, I must include the Deftones.
HOLY SH*T! I completely forgot how good these guys were... Artwork. Half of their songs are like 9 minutes long and they are truly art. Turn this up. LOUD.
And not only is the musicianship stellar, they have great lyrics. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lurm...eature=related
