Art is something which comes in various shapes, forms and names but sometimes goes easily unrecognized without proper promotion from different outlets and recommendations. Whether it comes from the clientele or fellow supporters, appreciation for talent as well as showcasing it are absolutely essential. A rather recent distro (2010 to present) based in Toronto, Canada by the name of Vault Of Dried Bones has constructed an online business and display of some of the most highly skilled graphic designers and artists for primitive death/blackened death metal releases and merchandise. This includes bands such as Mitochondrion, Antediluvian, Vasaeleth, Adversarial and various others. Everything from analog/digital chaos and flawless thread work in both quality and quality comes from this merchant and his associates who assist in contributing to the label.
To quote directly from the Vault Cult curator himself, Peter:
“I handle all of the screen printing for Vault Of Dried Bones using a combination of manual printing and automatic press printing. I am honoured to receive words of wisdom from my day job employers at Astro Screenprinting and from my coworkers who have their own projects Estate Family Guilds and Smells Gucci.
Regarding the artwork, if a band does not provide the design, we will commission an artist to take on the task. We have worked with many artists and I am always in search of unique talent. Some of the artists include Adam Caouette, Adam Kindred, Alexander L. Brown, Antichrist Kramer, Brian van der Pol, Danille Gauvin, Logan Muir III, N. Keller, Putrid Matt, Tim Grieco and Viral Graphics.”
Artists, musicians and merch enthusiasts alike, be sure to take note on this distro and keep and eye on his site, as it is continually updated and I am proud to say that I have been satisfied with all my previous orders from the Vault Of Dried Bones catalog.
TOTAL SUPPORT FOR TOTAL DEATH.
