Welcome to my A2 Media Studies Blog. The brief is: to produce a music video, a digipak cover, and magazine advert for the digipak. Throughout the course we will be learning about conventions (general and genre specific) used for each of these products.

RM - Mag Ads: Cauldron - Chained to the Nite

Artist: Cauldron
Album: Chained to the Nite
Magazine Found In: Terrorizer

The advert used is half a page however this is further separated down to advertise for four bands, the others being  Carcass's "Wake Up And Smell The Carcass", Oceano's "Depths" and an announcement for SSS on tour with Cancer Bats with their album "The Diving Line" advertised below it. Thus making the advert a 1/8 f the page. 

The album is pictured to the right of the advert with the band pictured to the left side. The band's name is pictured above the album artwork. Underneath the album artwork magazine reviews are included including reviews from Metal Hammer. To add to this additional information is also included telling the consumer that the product is now in stores and limited edition vinyl and a limited edition CDs, which contains a bonus CD containing two unreleased tracks, are available.
