In a statement released from the band: “It’s been a long, hard road, but the time has finally come for us to be able to release new ION VEIN music to the world, and we couldn’t be more excited! We’re making our first DR (digital release) IV v1.0 available to you for FREE for a limited time as a token of our appreciation for your continued patience and support. We’ve been through quite a lot since the release of Reigning Memories in 2003, and the only thing that kept us going was the belief in the strength of the new material, so we hope you enjoy it…
and remember to crank it loud! \m/
IV v1.0 track listing:
1) Enough (3:55)
2) Love/Hate (4:00)
3) Anger Inside (4:59)
The songs were produced/engineered and mixed by Neil Kernon (NILE, NEVERMORE, QUEENSRYCHE, REDEMPTION), and mastered by Alan Douches.
The DR concept was developed by Mortal Music as taking a snap shot of an album of music and releasing it into the market a “chapter” at a time, so to speak, to allow it to work its way into the marketplace faster and to help alleviate the musical overload fans and press alike are experiencing these days with so many options available. The full length album will then be available on CD at the end of the cycle for those that still collect physical product. Added
ION VEIN founder/guitarist, Chris Lotesto; “We really like what the guys at Mortal have going on and think their approach to the new musical marketplace is exciting and innovative! We’re really glad that we can be a part of helping to shape the way music can be presented to fans these days in the ever changing world of music!”
