ChartAttack.com caught up with Slaves on Dope bassist Frank Salvaggio to talk about the band’s new album ‘Metafour’ on Bieler Brothers/Universal, as well as their short-lived stint with Virgin Records. Asked how a heavy metal act managed with the traditionally pop label, Salvaggio responded, “It was a mess. There’s this segregation in music that isn’t too obvious, but trust me, it’s there. The people (at the label) didn’t understand us. ‘You mean you’re gonna go out and tour 30 days of 40? Our rap people don’t tour, we just put posters on poles!’ We never had any reps who understood what to do with a rock band, so it died.” Chartattack.com has since removed the article.
