Some very well known bands are signed to Roadrunner, such as Killswitch Engage, Slipknot, Trivium, The Devil Wears Prada, & others. - MetalFoREVer1228

4Sumerian

While they have some of the more popular bands like Asking Alexandria, they have some great metal bands too. Perfect examples: The Faceless, Upon A Burning Body, & After the Burial. - MetalFoREVer1228

They have bands like Periphery, Animals as Leaders, After the Burial, Veil of Maya, the list goes on. Amazing label.

Asking Alexandria is the best band

It has some of my favourite bands on it like AA.

My personal favourite, Arch Enemy, is signed to Century Media - Porcupine

Homeland of Lacuna Coil and Arch Enemy.

The Contenders

11Napalm Records

This is where I find the less popular metal bands that actually have great songs! Like Xandria, Delain and Visions of Atlantis!

12Epitaph

Please tell me you're joking. Those bands you listed are NOT metal in the slightest. Bring Me The Horizon have more in common with boy bands than they do metal.

With amazingly talented bands such as Escape The Fate, Falling in Reverse, Bring me The Horizon. Why aren't they up there?

The only metal band signed to this label is Parkway Drive.

13Facedown

Good bands with positive messages and fair prices on merch and music, what more could you ask for?

14Candlelight
15Warner Bros.
16Victory
17Spinefarm
18Osmose
19Eclipse Records

They don't put out a lot of stuff, but I've been a fan of theirs ever since they released the first Mushroomhead album back in 2001. Other notable bands they've worked with are Bobaflex, A Breach of Silence, and Scum of the Earth.
