Welcome to Handshake, Inc.
We are an independent music video/film production company, record label, and publisher with a focus on extreme and underground music.
A massive thanks to everyone who has purchased Jason Netherton’s “Extremity Retained: Notes from the Death Metal Underground,” the book is being enjoyed around the globe, and both Jason and I are extremely happy with the response!
Our newest book, “Perpetual Conversion: 30 Years in the Life of Metal Veteran Dan Lilker,” is now available for pre order.
Meticulously compiled from all-new interviews with not only Lilker but also his family and friends—including past and present band members—Perpetual Conversion progresses chronologically through all of his groundbreaking bands—Anthrax, SOD, Nuclear Assault, Brutal Truth, Hemlock—in addition to stopping for a look at his lesser-known projects along the way, including Extra Hot Sauce, The Ravenous, Malformed Earthborn and Overlord Exterminator.
With all-original contributions from the likes of Craig Setari, Barney Greenway, Dave Witte, Ross Dolan, John Connelly, Scott Ian, Gene Hoglan, Kevin Sharp, Anders Odden, Rich Hoak, Digby Pearson, Jason Fuller, Fenriz, Chris Reifert, Necro, Dave Ellefson and Jacob Bannon among many others, Perpetual Conversion focuses not only on Lilker’s prolific career, but on the many he’s influenced along the way.
