  1. For us, an underground label, dedicated to Black / Death / Doom, is not possible to send physical copies of our releases. That is why we sent digital promos and for which we ask for your consideration for a review. Our digital promos contain the MP3 music and the respective layout (depends on the format released by us). Band contact for possible interviews will have to be requested to us (It serves to show the bands that we try to do our best to make them known in the underground). As soon as you do the review, please send the text (zines) and the link (webzines) to our email. However if you do not work with digital promos and / or do not want any more info from War Productions, please inform us. To finish, please do not post / share our music in forums, social media, blogs, etc.

    So i would to know if i can send you some digital promos.
