LODGE ON MYSPACE AT WAR METAL SWEDEN
JAGUAR NWOBHM, UK
2014 may – october 2015 War Metal Sweden was Promotor and Manager for the NWOBHM Bristol Band, UK Jaguar after 10 years of silence when they released their new album “Metal X” trough Golden Core Records in Germany to help them build up their fanbase at FB that was nothing of so online so their homepage and twitter and reverbnation and other promotions online they needed help with to get their fanbase back and going + finding them an new vocalist as they just before the release had parted with the old one because of private reasons, so I (Wictoria) helped them growing and promoting + arranged auditioning shoutout and eventually i helped them to auditioning vocalists here in Sweden for a new swedish vocalist as we could not find anyone in UK trough countless auditionings without results. Eventually It ended up we found one trough my contacts and I took their band down to Gävle Sweden for auditioning one and it turned out he was right fitted and directly the day after i took new band line up pictures of the new band and created their promotion and press releases for new band line up to send to press and get the band going and also created a soundclip teaser for the band so the fans could hear the new vocalist. So When i left the band on october 20, 2015 their fan pages was selfgenerating of fans visiting and added their pages by my hard work with almost 4000 fans. When i started they had only 300 FB likes and and an non existing internet page and nothing else online. My hard work had payed off and was done and the bands founder after showed him how to promote online in modern days i let them take over their own things. My achivement was done, the bands fanbase was now selfgenerating + a new band lineup and the fans knew they was back. I think they will manage themself now, Hopefully.
Below,their latest album release from their YouTube page i built up where also their promotional video are that i made for them.
