it's the FINAL countdown!!!

hello friends,

at first I want to say thank you for all the funny and great feedback I got from you over the last few years, it was really a pleasure to copy all these tapes… TOXIC TAPE RECORDS was a funny idea, because I never had a Record-Label, and because I’m an old school tape deck guy ( every rehearsal room needs that! ) this was the only way for me to run a d.i.y. label!!! it was clear for me to copy some tapes, to put out some bands that I really like …and to be honest, vinyl is too fucking expensive, ha ha ha

...but now, after 5 Years, it seems like I’ve done my work, I'm fine with that, I will “hang up my decks”!!!

a very big "cheers" goes out to all the bands i was able to work with, to be a small part in their discography ...VLADA INA, OAKEN HEART, HANDS UPON SALVATION, TO KILL & Sea Shepherd, PEACE OF MIND, FORESTER, CHOOSE TO LIVE …they are all doing a great job!!! and I hope to see them grow and go crazy for a couple of years more...

my latest release is the new EP from MARISOLV, one of the first bands I ever put out on tape, and actually my own band ;-) contact me via facebook if you like to get a copy, they are limited to 50pcs, the download is for free... 2 more releases are planned but still a warm kept secret. maybe all records later on will only be digital releases…

i am still doing some "Straight Ahead" shows in Bad Salzungen later this year, and my friends Sven & Raffi are working hard to reactivate the scene in Bad Hersfeld, so I hope to see you all, support your local scene!!!

you can download the new CHOOSE TO LIVE and MARISOLV record here for free:
