    I would actually contribute to these guys' campaign, but what am I getting for $51 CAD? It doesn't say how you get the album... is it digital? That's a vinyl price point

    And even that his arrogance and weirdness ruined.

    They got most of the song footage filmed then randomly he took his shirt off and let his hair down.

    The guy taking the shoot then asked him to revert to how he was due to continuity issues (randomly going in and out of his hair being up then down, with shirt disappearing etc lol) but he refused and wanted everyone to be topless all of a sudden.

    Then there was awkwardness on the shoot as the other dudes were like...we are not getting semi naked dude....

    Hahah

    This isn't getting released besides the music video

    Please learn from these crowdfunding trainwrecks, Corelia dipped with 30k+ and hasn't said a word in 2 years. Don't be a moron and fund artists especially ones with crap history.

    I’ll let people with money to burn fund it. I’m not paying for a “band” when the main guy cannot keep members and has a history of projects falling through.

    If it comes out sure I’ll listen to it. But “hope” isn’t something I spend my money on. It’s the same trash as pre-ordering a game.

    I need a better track record of delivering than space-cadets like this guy.

    There's been silence from Wintersun for a long time despite a very successful crowdfunding campaign. I wonder where that money went.

    They're planning to do another one, they got 450k€ at the first one and 25% of it went to taxes, or something like that. I guess some of it went for equipment, touring expenses and salaries. Touring part lasted one and a half years after all, and it's not free, plus it takes almost all the time from that perioid. They have been couple of months very quiet in social media, so they must be working for something.

    The worst part of it is that Nostaliga is such a good album

    Oh man I wonder how the rest of the world manages to tour and record music without 6 figures. Jari and Wintersun have impossible standards and spend far too much time and money on their art. I can tell from your avatar that you're a fan, but don't give excuses for ridiculous situations like this.

    https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/corelia-2015-the-long-awaited-debut-album

    200%+ of their goal was reached and radio silence after October of 2016. Protest the Hero led the front with a killer campaign and delivering on all their promises, but man is crowdfunding a simple and abuse-able idea. I haven't contributed to a single CF just because I saw these issues coming from a mile away, especially when the platforms hold no commitments to the creators of the content.

    It must be way easier with that kind of money, but I don't think their standards are even out of this world when some other metal bands with enormously expensive productions have budgets like 500-800k for an album.

    I don't think crowdfunding musicians is intrinsically bad, but it presents the tempting moral hazard found in other types of work. Before, it was that you work and then you get paid. Now, you get paid and you must work... if you want to.

    Anybody who has a salaried office job can probably relate: some people stay on task and get their shit done... others seem to rotate between chatting, smoking, and complaining about being busy while getting nothing done. :lol:

    I'll be amazed if this gets off the ground.
    Then I'll be even more amazed if they actually deliver.
