Industrial Music Battles Cancer

I have to admit that it warms my heart when I see artists come together for a worthy cause. Several Industrial bands are going to have songs on a massive 4 disc compilation project. All of the profits from this project will go towards fighting cancer. Awesome! It comes out  February of next year. I’m including all of the promotional info about it:


Featuring a huge number of amazing bands, this 4 disc compilation coming out on Metropolis Records on 2/9/2010 was put together by longtime 16volt friend and cancer survivor Jim Semonik with proceeds going towards the Foundation for Cancer Research and Wellness. Here is some more info from The Pittsburgh City Paper:

Like the city itself, Pittsburgh’s dark-electronic music scene encompasses both the clangor of the Industrial Revolution and the buzz-and-click of the Information Age. A consistent mover in that cyber-punk community is Jim Semonik, who’s put in a decade of both concert promotion (as Distortion Productions) and live performance, with electro-industrial band Rein[forced]. Semonik’s dedication didn’t waver during his difficult bout with Colon Cancer last year, and he’s eager to give back to the medical wizards who saved his life with an anthology called Electronic Saviors: Industrial Music to Cure Cancer.

Saviors has become a monumental undertaking: a four-CD box-set plus a downloadable fifth album, due on February 9, 2010 on goth-industrial juggernaut Metropolis Records. The 80-plus artist lineup includes industrial/EBM legends Combichrist, Chemlab, Suicide Commando, 16Volt and Leather Strip, and a contingent of local acts like Prometheus Burning and Semonik’s group. “It took 90 percent of my free time for the last eight months,” Semonik recalls, “but it was well worth it considering the tracks I got — there’s not one filler on the whole thing.”

Proceeds from the compilation will be donated to the Foundation for Cancer Research and Wellness situated in Harrisburg, PA. Furthermore, the compilation will be LIMITED TO 2500 COPIES!
