Ozzy Osbourne

Rob "Blasko" Nicholson (Cryptic Slaughter, Drown, Prong, Danzig, Rob Zombie and current Ozzy Osbourne bassist) has been confirmed to take part in the upcoming metal recording industry documentary Behind The Suit and Tie. Filming will take place on December 21 in NYC.

Through a series of interviews with players from both indie and major labels, Behind The Suit and Tie will showcase the truth of how the music industry is being affected by the downward spiral of CD sales and how new and up and coming artists must learn to adjust to changing times. The film will also contain insight from Radio DJ Eddie Trunk, Paul Conroy (Ferret Records), Missi Callazzo (Megaforce Records), Al Dawson (Earache Records), Pat Egan (Relapse Records), Ray Harkins (Century Media), JC (The End Records), Mark Nawara (Crash Music), Gary Susalis (Music Choice), Rayny Forster (Moshpit Tragedy), Demolition Records, Heavy Artillery Records, Ex-Megadeth and current F5 bassist David Ellefson, and Soulfly/Primer 55 bassist Bobby Lee Burns. More labels and artists are subjected to be added.

Behind The Suit and Tie pulls no punches and features some of the prime movers in the heavy metal industry drawing back the veil of mystique surrounding the music business and addressing tough questions about the industry itself, how it's run and where labels see their role in a digital future. There has been a lot of bad blood shed throughout the metal recording industry for many years now and it's time we separate fact from fiction.

Robert Jr./Producer, Energy Music comments: "This film is not going to be your ordinary music documentary. We will deliver a strong message throughout the heavy metal community to show you what is fact and what is fiction. We have started full production on November 1 in NYC and things are moving along as planned."
