It's with great sadness that I declare as follows:
My brother Filippo worked for Areadeath for some years now. Until now a lot of CD, Box Set and re-releases have been produced and distributed all over the world bringing success and positive reviews for Areadeath on the international collector's circle
Unfortunately Wang never paid my brother for the job he has done during the years: he has never seen a single Dollar and - on the contrary, while Wang was counting the money for the selling of the CD's my brother had to pay by his own hands royalties and copyright for each band. He has never been thanked nor even paid a single dollar for his great job. Not only: every cost for royalties and purchasing of rights has to be beared by my brother. We only received 1 free copy for each CD he produced. While Wang was making money, my brother had to bear any cost....he lost thousand of euros and he has never been paid a single cent nor been thanked. In last months Wang simply ignored any request, any email, any question and bands who complained for delay never received any answer from Wang. He's the boss....nobody should bother him. He has to think to money only: any other problem should be forwarded to his minions because it's their duty.
In last times a lot of band complained with Areadeath for delays...my brother had to suffer this situation and Wang never replied (as he's the owner of the label he should keep contact with bands: he was too busy to count money to answer to bands so he preferred to forward any problem to my brother)
This lead to the end of collaboration: my brother spent years, blood, money and tears to make his dream come true and the result is 4 nervous breakdown in less than 3 months that lead him to a sort of vegetative state. I'm worried for him and his health as he lost all of his money and he has a lot of debts to pay because of delays with cd re-releases
Wang simply showed his total disinterest in personal situations. As any chinese boss he feels he has complete power and authority to decide wheter to pay or not his team mates.
Chinese economical system is based on slavery and workers are just bodies to exploit in the hands of greedy bosses. When you read of chinese economical miracle just stop and think for a while: for 1 person who makes money there are thousand who starve to death and are forced to work as modern slaves. Their only right is to remain silent.
Thanx Area death, thanx to led my brother to a vegetative state. Won't forget it.
