What are your favorite current metal record labels?
« on: May 31, 2017, 12:56:13 AM »
I would probably have to pick High Roller Records, No Remorse Records, Cult Metal Classics and Arkeyn Steel. I'm extremely interested in reissues/compilations of classic material from more obscure bands.

What about you?

My picks would also be, besides High Roller Records from Germany and Greek No Remorse - also Svart Records from Finland, Stormspell Records and Divebomb Records from the States, Marquee Records from Brazil, F.O.A.D. Records from Italy, Iron Pegasus Records from Germany - and due to all of these labels' nice and professionally made, mostly reissues of old stuff (plus, unreleased stuff as well). 

What a great topic by the way...  :thumbup:

Could not agree more! They also have some really good discounts on their website periodically.   :thumbup:

Also forgot to mention French Infernö Records. They have a wide selection of all kinds of old-school Metal for sale there. Just ordered 8 releases from them this morning (inc. German Attack's 2 CDs) because they give 50% discount for their entire CD catalog.

I couldn't possibly say. I haven't paid much attention to that in the past few years.

Remember The End Records? I went to their web site for the first time in years last week. My heart sank.

Cruz del Sur, Napalm, Hells Headbangers, AFM, Stormspell and Pure Steel releases are ones I usually check out. High Roller had a good run a few years back but I haven't seen much from them lately.

Oh fuck, yeah.  They turned to complete shit.

Remember Adipocere/Oakenshield?  Used to be a fantastic French label that I don't think exists anymore.

And then there was Black Lotus.  They had some of the worst shit.

I bought OZ's Fire in the Brain from Black Mark a while back. The CD had just the disc and a single sheet with the art one one side and blank on the other. In light of the cheapo packaging I should have just downloaded it. Waste of money.

In addition to ones already mentioned, Shadow Kingdom Records is another one I like.  I usually assume a band is pretty good if released by Shadow Kingdom Records.

Shadow Kingdom are pretty good, but never as good as I think they could be.

Remember when Listenable was awesome?  Those were the days.

Pulverised are always a good label for Death and Black metal.

Yes, I absolutely agree about those two labels. Both of them used to release some killer stuff back in the day...

This reminds me, anyone still remembers Swedish No Fashion and Wrong Again Records? They released some of the best melodic - mostly Swedish, Black and Death Metal stuff during the early 90s. I used to sell tons of stuff from those labels when I was running my own little distro thing in the 90s...
