Release group RAGEMP3 quits the scene after raids

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 6/27/2009 | | 7 Comments »

This news is about 3 days old but since it was never given much publicity, here goes. If you read this TorrentFreak article, you are probably aware of the recent raids conducted against well known MP3 release groups from the warez scene. Although the article only mentions DV8 , raids directly affected another popular group RAGEMP3. From what we know the leader of DV8 (who got arrested) was also the leader of RAGEMP3. And it is now confirmed that at least one of these groups has quit the scene for good. Quoted below is a SceneNotice posted by RAGEMP3:

Due to the recent events, RAGEMP3 is now officially done.  We had a long run and it was a great 10 years.  Someone made a poor decision and now a veteran group is shutting it's doors.  Thanks for everything.


ps. griffen is a bitch and a fed.  So delete him from your sites.

There were a lot of rumors about RAGEMP3/DV8 leader re-selling promos on E-Bay. We don’t know if these rumors were true but there were other SceneNotices that flamed both the groups for trading music – I_Am_Very_Good_At_Trading-Look_My_Skills-(Retail)-2009-RAGEMP3 and VA-Now_Thats_What_I_Call-Obvious_Auttot_Rading-EBAY_PROMO-2009-DV8.

There will of course be another group to take RAGEMP3’s place but they really were veterans when it came to scene released MP3s. A lot of the promos and advance MP3 releases that hit the scene in the recent past were by these two groups. R.I.P.

It is currently not known of DV8 too has officially quit.

    There was also another SceneNotice flaming DV8. It linked to a photo of a piece of paper in a toilet on which 'DV8' is written on.

    It probably means that someone in the group ratted them out (was a federal agent) and they warn topsites against the infiltrator.
