Why should you support Crown of Viserys?

Crown of Viserys is a website and zine that is passionate about the metal we report on. We listen to many genres of music, and tons of subgenres of metal, and always with a critical ear, because life is too short to listen to bad music. It is our passion to write about the music we are listening to, and to interview the musicians that make it.

We also want to grow. We want to become one of the premier online and printed sources for metal news, reviews, and interviews, and we want to become a bigger and better promoter of local shows in Edmonton. The best way to do that is through our fans, who through their interaction and patronage will inform us not only what they like about Crown of Viserys, but also what they would like to see covered by us.

Our online presence is not just our website, but also our YouTube channel, our Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and even Tumblr. It's on YouTube you will see our interviews with musicians as diverse as Nathan Opposition of Ancient VVisdom; Mortillery; Scimitar; Bleed; AfterEarth; With Malice; Jeff Waters of Annihilator; Julien Truchan of Benighted; and more. On Twitter you'll read about new posts on the website and Instagram. On Facebook you'll get much of the same, and more news bits. On Instagram you'll get snaps from shows I am at, as well as snaps of my cats and food (what else is Instagram for, really?). And on Tumblr you will just see posts from the website because I don't use Tumblr for anything else.

For print we are building a series of zines, usually only 6 to 8 pages, which are full of what we cover on the site, as well as exclusive material that will not be seen on the site, from photos to reviews to live coverage. On top of that, we are building a series of books that will feature stuff from the site and zines, and even more exclusive content.

For show promotion, things are already well underway. October 2015 saw the first Crown of Viserys presented festival, the Black Mourning Light Metal Festival, and more shows from December 2015 well into 2016 up to the second edition of the Black Mourning Light Metal Festival. Patreon patrons get first dibs on tickets, including VIP tickets to BML.

Goals
$0 of $50 per month
I would like a new video camera. Right now I'm using my DSLR's video capabilities to capture video, and despite being in full HD and such, it's main drawback is that I get about five minutes worth of video recorded and then the camera overheats and automatically shuts down to cool off. Which means short interviews and music videos made out of splicing various live video footage and photos set to an album track.
I'd like to change that with a video camera designed for video exclusively, to produce better live video footage for interviews and concert videos.
This goal is not even just dependent upon our Patreon subscribers, as I am saving up my own money for it, but it is something for everyone to look forward to.
