In trying to minimize both yours and our workload, the most common questions we get will find themselves answered here. The page is not
static, it will grow as new issues arise, so come back here regularly rather than asking - if the answer is in here, you won“t have to
wait for us to reply. If it“s not in here, you might want to try searching "How to order". Here we go:
I am looking for a Waerloga release, where can I find them?
You can find them here on the website and in also check the Links page to see some of our distributors. As we don“t always know where
our distributors sell their albums we cannot track down all copies. If you know of a good store or mailorder that "should" stock Waerloga releases, just send them or us an e-mail. We are always happy to get suggestions.
The limited edition releases sell out fairly quickly so place your orders as soon as they are released.
I live in this place and I can“t seem to find those Waerloga Records CDs anywhere, what should I do?
Waerloga Record“s music isn“t exactly mainstream; availability is a problem for all of us. Here are a few suggestions: Firstly, try
ordering them through our online mailorder catalogue. There are links to a few mail order companies in the Links section. If you“re
looking for the rarest items, try visiting a second-hand records dealer, or try asking in forums.
I sent you an order for these items a little while ago, what happened, did you receive the order?
Orders shouldn“t take more than two weeks to reach you, but in some cases we may be busy with tours or releases and it might take a
bit longer, so be patient. If you wish to inquire, however, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and make sure you include all the
information you have - name, address, your order and your payment. We ALWAYS make order confirmations when we receive money.
We also look into the mail account several times every day and try to send all items as soon as we can. Often we ship the same day as an
order has been made. More info can be found in the how to order section.

Can I podcast or include songs from some of your bands in my radio program?
Yes, just contact us and let us know more about what you“re doing and we“ll be happy to oblige.
Can I find Waerloga Records songs at music download sites?
You can find us on Last fm: http://www.lastfm.com/user/Waerloga
On last fm you can search for many artists and find songs. Here you have a couple of direct links to Waerloga bands last fm pages:
Za Frūmi - http://www.last.fm/music/Za+Fr%C3%BBmi
Encryption - http://www.last.fm/music/Encryption
Lost Kingdom - http://www.last.fm/music/Lost+Kingdom
Do you have any Last fm Group?
Yes we do. It is called "Orcs that will fucking kill you". Named after a tag a fan of Za Frūmi gave them. Here“s a direct link to the group. http://www.last.fm/group/Orcs+that+will+fucking+kill+you
I am starting a Web Site. Can I use your mp3s and other information from your site on my site?
You may indeed make use of the mp3s offered on the site under two strict conditions.
1) DO NOT link directly to them. You may download
them to your computer and upload them onto your server, as long as you give us visible credit for the use of the files or text and
provide a link (please target a new window) to our site: www.waerloga.com.
2) You may not rip the CD yourself and make the files available on your site. If you do this, you are committing copyright infringement
and could be prosecuted. What you can do is contacting us and let us take a look at your site. Then we decide if we should send you additional MP3s.
On last fm, myspace and on this site you can find mp3s.
Contact us if you have questions about this. We can also provide your site with material and information others get later.
Why can“t I just link the files directly?
The reason we do not condone direct linking is most importantly related to bandwidth issues, but also because the mp3s we offer are constantly changing.
Where can I write to my favorite Waerloga Records bands?
You can try myspace. You can also write to us at Waerloga Records and we send the mails to the bands.
Where can I read about Upcoming Releases?
Sign up for the Newsletter and you get the information. You can also check out our myspace site: www.myspace.com/waerlogarecords
I am artist/label/distributor and wish you to sell my album/s on the website. Will you do it?
We only stock what we feel fit the label. If we have not contacted you ourselves we normally do trades with Waerloga Releases or sell on commission.
Remember that we only want music that we think fit our concept. We rather have a small mailorder than a big one just for the sake of it.
We are not foremost into this for making money!
Contact us and we can talk more about your product. No need to contact us about metal! MANY who buy from this site like metal but there are
better places than the Waerloga mailorder for buying metal albums.
I am an artist and would like to get my music released on Waerloga Records, what shall I do?
First of all read our conceptual idea above and do remember we will never release metal music.
If you still think your music fit to be released then take the time to write to us and tell us about your project and something about
you as a person. We don“t need to get big bios but would like to get a "picture" of the person behind the music.
In the end it“s the music that“s most important of course!
You also need to think about what will be in it for Waerloga Records to release your project. We are driven by a lot more than earning
a few coins here and there and to release re-issues seems almost always as something strange. Also remember that the scene is intimate
and very true. Often we release artists at first on a compilation to see how things work out and then we move on.
If you are an artist with no released album yet we want you to know that to be debuting means a lot of work for both you and us.
Having all this said we are always on the lookout for new and fresh music to release. Look at the bands that have been released by us.
As of late we have got demos from different artist“s sounding very much alike. That is a problem with new instrument samplers such as
EastWest. Always try to create your own sound, own vision, have your own inspiration = concept.
We listen to everything! It may take some time, but we make an effort to listen to all submissions.
We prefer a well organized myspace website that includes 3 of your best songs, promotional pictures/inspirational pictures/mood,
and a short, but meaningful biography.
Here“s a checklist:
1. Presentation of your project.
2. Presentation of you as a person (short bio/info).
3. What are your concept/conceptual idea?
4. You don“t need to "sell" us the project/music but tell us why we should release you.
5. Money should not be the starting point. If are in this genre to make money more than anything you should not contact us.
6. Why did you go to Waerloga Records?
7. Send us links to myspace sites or other sites with your music on it. Far better than that is sending us a CD-R (burned as Data) or
8. We will not sign for unsolicited demos. Send everything regular airmail! Normally to send a link to a good myspace site is enough.
