I'm looking for rock n roll/heavy metal haunt music to get the customers pumped up before entering the haunt. I fell in love with some of Nightwish's songs: Scaretale, Storytime, Wish I Had an Angel; but i obviously don't have permission to use their music. Does anyone know of good rock/heavy metal haunt music to use in a que line that I could get permission to use. Or does anyone currently use Nightwish music and successfully contacted them?

Thanks
Nathan

All royalty free, just register your haunt on his site. i know of several haunts that use Jerry's music for their queue lines...

I have to agree with Badger,
Jerry is a hell of a nice guy & his music is exactly what you need, if you want to stay "out of trouble" and not have to pay royalties.

You can purchase an ASCAP license and play Nightwish's music at your show. You just can't edit or alter the material from its original form. There are literally hundreds of different licenses for just about every form of business, TV, Radio, internet etc. The license below is the one you need to acquire in order to use Nightwish's music in a haunted house. In addition to their music it also gives you the ability to play just about anyone else's music as well. They cover millions of artists. The license covers you for a year and is a couple hundred dollars. However, because Haunted Houses are only open to the public for a limited amount of days for a short period of time during a day it's possible that you can get the fees decreased according to your amount of days open. It's different for everyone depending on days open, times, how many attractions and possible attendance. Contact ASCAP and talk to them about your show.

I've had a DJ business for 36 years. Back in 1975, some joker sent me a letter telling me about "Music and the music you use". It looked like a phoney brochure/newsletter from BMI and ASCAP just looking for money. I never responded to it. They wanted to know my music "USAGE", and demanded a fee or I would be "POLITELY" shut down, fined, and possibly put in jail, if I did not comply to THEIR LAWS.... I wish I still had the letter.

Well. I'm still here, making a killing (money wise) doing DJ work, and never heard a thing from anybody. Even if there were LAWS on this, you would think they would be better enforced. This is a joke. don't worry about BMI and ASCAP...........they have no staff to enforce these bullshit laws. party on !!!!!!

Interesting to know, Guess laws are enforced differently for how it's used. I do audio for TV and Radio commercials and ASCAP is highly enforced in that field. If the agency uses a copyrighted song without the license or permission from the artist it gets pulled from the air very quickly and the attorneys eat it up, but I think it's the artist and their labels/managers that are more worried about it than say ASCAP is. The ASCAP license will just prevent any type of confusion from happening.
