Chances are you know about Scion’s involvement in the world of extreme music (as well as garage rock and electronic music scenes). Chances are some of you have even gone on online to whine about a huge corporation like Scion/Toyota digging their claws and worming their tentacles into our sacred little world… after picking up your free Wormrot and Revocation EPs and downloading those two new Witch Mountain tracks, no doubt. Chances are you’ve attended one of the many fests, showcases and shows Scion has organised; I know I have. Chances are you’re aware that Scion have a series of video mini-docs focusing on underground labels and have previously featured Moshpit Tragedy, Profound Lore, Prosthetic and Relapse. Chances are you’re aware of the heart-on we have for Dom Romeo’s A389 Records. Well, worlds are colliding my friends as the Deciblog presents Scion A/V’s feature on A389, including interviews with Romeo, live footage of Integrity, Seven Sisters of Sleep and the Love Below, as well as footage of Dom’s home set-up and his transgression of child labour laws in getting his daughter to help package pre-orders.

  • will.

    such a humble guy for operating the best label in heavy music… much respect.

  • worsethanuseless

    Nice dismissal of any legitimate arguments against corporate sponsorship. Great work.

  • Nolan.

    I like how Scion blurred out the crucified Christ on the Pick Your Side shirt. Keep it edgey.

  • Nick Fiction

    great documentary on a great record label! Dom, I look forward to part 4 where you discuss your most famous recording artist.

  • Matt Shack

    Listen to Black Marsh not Pale Imitation

  • mike

    I haven’t done any of those things that you have related to your unquestioned allegiance to Scion. That’s because you are a fucking phony johnny come lately asshole with the integrity of a shit heap.
