You'd have to work pretty hard to overcome the stigma of a name like 'redzone' in Second Life at the moment.

Ann Otoole InSL

It is not the band's fault that someone used their name in SL for illicit purposes.

Tinsel Silvera

I agree completely Ann. A lot of time and effort has been put into this event by many talented individuals. Thank you Hamlet for NOT equating this music event to past illicit activities in Second Life.

I've been writing about RedZone the band since 2009:


So when people started complaining about Redzone the security thing, in the beginning I thought they were talking about the band! Like, why are so many people angry at a cool UK industrial group?

Red Xu

The name collison was an annoyance, I'd be lying if I said any differently, but we were in SL before the 'other' redzone and will just have to deal with it! We are NOT going to change just because of this!

Thanks to Hamlet, Persia and NWN for the continued support :)
