Clearly, we at MAGNETIC EYE RECORDS have lost our minds, because we've decided it makes great sense to bring bands from four continents together for a single night of amazing, earth-cracking heaviness in the form of our first-ever label showcase event:  


"THE DAY OF DOOM NEW YORK"

Saturday, November 2, 2019

Saint Vitus Bar, Brooklyn, NY

Magnetic Eye Records label showcase features live performances from:

SUMMONER

ELEPHANT TREE

HORSEHUNTER

DOMKRAFT


In addition to bringing our 4 heaviest bands to New York for our first label showcase ever, we figured, these bands rule and absolutely crush live, so why not record a live album from each while we have them here in the flesh?

It's a pretty insane undertaking, which is why we need your help to make this happen! 

Magnetic Eye will be releasing live albums recorded at this once-in-a-lifetime event from SUMMONER, ELEPHANT TREE, HORSEHUNTER, and DOMKRAFT, which we're making available for pre-order via this Kickstarter campaign.  We'll be doing both CD and glorious vinyl (of course), and offering individual albums as well as deluxe collector's packages containing all four.  

There will be lots more details forthcoming on the event itself (especially since we have WAY more than 4 amazing bands on the MER roster), so the best way you can support this event (along with attending in person!) is by pre-ordering these records now or donating to help fund our efforts to bring these staggeringly great bands all to one venue for one night.

Label showcase ticket information and further details will be made available during the course of the Kickstarter campaign, along with more details on the lineup as everything gets solidified. 

As always, thank you for your interest and support for what we do!

Risks and challenges

We are well aware of all the risks and challenges of organizing this live event and delivering a live recording on the finest vinyl. We are nearing our 100th release as a label.

We will stay in communication with the community every step of the way in creating an unforgettable live event and recording.
