40Grit Update:
REALITY CHECK MEDIA has been tapped by 40 Grit to shoot its first-ever video
for the song "Only Human", the initial single from the forthcoming Metal
Blade Records release, Nothing to Remember, which is slated to come out in
early 2003. The clip will be shot on location in the SF Bay Area by the end
of Nov. and will also be formatted for inclusion in an enhanced CD package
for the disc's release. A special low list price of $9.98 will make this a
double bonus for consumers, who will get the enhanced disc at no extra cost!

RC Media is a division of Reality Check TV & Radio (, the
long running shows based in the Bay Area. RCTV airs on several Bay Area
cable systems, including San Francisco, Berkeley, Concord/Walnut
Creek/surrounding East Bay towns and Sacramento. RC Radio airs weekly on
KOOX 93.7fm in Oakland and is simulcast on Previous Reality Check
Media credits include a video clip for Bay Area stalwarts Skinlab, whose
collaboration with RC Media resulted in "Know Your Enemies", which was
especially well received in Europe, Australia, and the US. This clip also
was included on Skinlab's Disembody: The New Flesh CD in 1999. Other notable
credits include a 20-minute interview/live performance/behind the scenes
segment with old-school Bay Area Metal Monsters Testament for a special
enhanced CD package on the Japanese version of their First Strike, Still

current reVolting Room CD is also in the can, although no release date has
been set. RC Media also shot a recent Skinlab performance in San Francisco
