is the very first thing ever put forth by I See Stars. This was a promo youtube release for their first ever EP titled "Happy Ransom Note" which has been lost to time. If anybody has a copy of Happy Ransom Note, please send it to us to preserve for generations to come.
What this project aims to do is
create an archive for any and every shred of Metal and Alternative
style music from between 2001 and 2012 that can be recovered. This time
frame was considered to be the "wild west" for metal and alternative
bands, with many gaining national fandom just by uploading a single 3 or
4 song demo to the website. We are searching every nook and cranny of
the internet to find these pieces of musical art that would otherwise be
forever lost to time and the black hole the Internet has become. No
song too short, and no artist too obscure.
Things we are not archiving: Anything
that belongs to a still active Record Label, or that are still actively
for sale in their original un-altered format (via Bandcamp, iTunes,
Amazon Music, or any other digital platform). We do not wish to create
any issues where copyright may be at play.
you have anything to contribute, or wish for something to be removed,
