The label's dedicated staff, their outstandingly classy and pretty open-minded musical taste for all things extreme as well as the quality work delivered for cool bands like LAMB OF GOD, GOJIRA, SKELETONWITCH, ALL THAT REMAINS and BENEATH THE MASSACRE make us happy and proud to be teaming up with them as new partner for our upcoming releases!
