We are MANDATORY a Metal band from Austria!

Over the last decade we've released two EPs and two full-length albums and played major and minor stages in our home-country and beyond.

As fully independent artists we're proud that we've come this far without being affiliated to a record label. To maintain this independence we have to make sure that people like you appreciate the stuff we come up with. So we're always eager to provide you with the best material we can produce with our available resources. And that’s where you and Patreon come in!

What is Patreon?
Patreon is a crowdfunding platform for content creators like us where people like you can support artists with a fixed amount of money each time (!) they release content - in our case videos.

How can I become a Patreon?
Click on the "Become a Patreon" button next to the video at the top of the page. Enter the amount you kindly want to give us per video and choose your reward (credit card or PayPal required).

What are the rewards?
Our rewards vary from a "HUGE THANK YOU" and a high five at the next gig, to a "complete physical and digital album package with monthly Google or Skype hangouts during the time of your patronage. More information at the bottom of the page.

How much do I have to give to you?
That's completely up to you - from 1$/video to 1000$/video (in this case we'd give you a honest "thank you" but we'd strongly advise to visit a couch doctor). To prevent yourself from going bankrupt you can add a monthly spending limit in case we have a creativity burst and release 5 videos a month. 

How much videos are you going to release per month?
Our goal is to release at least one video per month!
To be honest there are times when we have a really high output but then there are times when our productivity is non-existent. So our release rate varies between zero to five videos a month.

To get an idea of what we do and who you're going to support, check out our songs and videos:
