Best Heavy Metal Record LabelsMetalFoREVer1228
The Top Ten
Suicide Silence is under this label!
They have some of the finest extreme metal bands, like Carnifex, Children of Bodom, Machine Head, Suicide Silence, & Death Angel. One of the biggest metal labels in the world. - MetalFoREVer1228
One word: Nightwish
Yup deserves number 1 just look at how many metal bands they have on them - christangrant2 Comments
They've got some great bands signed, like As I Lay Dying, Whitechapel, Amon Amarth, & Cannibal Corpse - MetalFoREVer1228
Code Orange, Slipknot, Trivium, Power Trip, Killswitch engage...list goes on
Slipknot makes Roadrunner records the best record label for metal bands. it's the best of the best
Some very well known bands are signed to Roadrunner, such as Killswitch Engage, Slipknot, Trivium, The Devil Wears Prada, & others. - MetalFoREVer12282 Comments
My personal favourite, Arch Enemy, is signed to Century Media - Porcupine
Homeland of Lacuna Coil and Arch Enemy.
Love the black metal bands on this label. While I do love Unique Leader, Metal Blade, Relapse, etc bands, this label has the most of my favorite bands on it. - shoulderboythemetalhead
A label that does its job - introducing and supporting new blood, regardless of genre. Not playing safe. Kind of what Roadrunner was about before it became irrelevant.
It is the best label, did a great job with the Septicflesh and still fzaem with bands like Carach Angren, Mayhem, Beyond Creation and Rotting Christ
Many great BLACK METAL bands on this Label.2 Comments
I am a giant Obsessed fan. Scott Wino is an amazing artist and songwriter. They are an amazing contributor to the "Relapse Label".
Relapse records has the most consistent roster, as well as the best looking vinyl releases. Their releases are always on time (if not early). They have the best prices for a majority of their products, as well as the cheapest shipping prices compared to all of the other labels listed.
By far my favorite record label. Tons of amazing bands past and present. Terrific rereleases. What's not to love!
How is this not in the top ten?! Must be a mistake...4 Comments
This label has the most extreme bands in 2019. It use to be Nuclear Blast and Century Media but not since 2015. Peaceville has stepped it up while the two giants from decades ago have gone way downhill with their non-extreme crap signings.
The fact that Earache is this low down proves that this site is filled with children...
THIS LABEL involved the best metal bands for me
HE MADE History speaking of death and black metal!
Carcass - Heartwork
At the Gates - Slaughter of the Soul
Vektor - Terminal Redux
Entombed - Left Hand Path
Nocturnus - The Key
New band sug-saft toda3 Comments
Amazing albums, amazing bands, amazing record label to buy vinyls
Some person forgot to mention Kamelot under unappreciated metal bands. Kamelot is EPIC! But Amberian dawn and Delain are epic. Those are my personal top favorites, but the other ones mentioned are really good as well!
There are some underrated bands.
Home of the small boys! But still a kicker for folk, power and speed metal!3 Comments
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.
Probably the best label for modern prog metal
Asking Alexandria is the best band3 Comments
I know for a fact HHR makes more money than a couple of labels over here
So much metal
Should be #1. I love the merch m/
Iwrestledabearonce... that's enough
Of mice and men, that's all
Great roster. Positive message. Check them out!
Underrated despite having signed bands such as August Burns Red, Underoath, Norma Jean, Demon Hunter, Extol, and He Is Legend. In the meantime they are also home to rising talent such as Silent Planet, Phinehas, and Fit For A King.
Sinister.. Debauchery...Mystic Prophecy...Fates Warning.. Anvil... legion of the Damned
Interesting label with good bands and positive message.
Turkey's only metal label. If Hammer wouldn't struck, metal wouldn't exist in Turkey. Bands: Cenotaph, Radical Noise, Antisilence, Decimation (now they are under Comatose), Dr. Skull, Pagan(aka. Gökböri).
They have some great technical bands that hit hard and go heavy!
Abyssal, Lord Mantis, Bell Witch, Agalloch, Pallbearer, Prurient (noise artist), Pissgrave, Portal, Artificial Brain, Full of Hell, etc.
Pallbearer, Bell witch, Agalloch, Cobalt, Subrosa... should I continue?
Killer black metal, gave a lot of big bands their start too
A label with morals and also ghoul
Good bands with positive messages and fair prices on merch and music, what more could you ask for?
20 Buck has a perfect lineup! No bad bands at all.
Only by having Architects under their name is already worth a vote.
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.1 Comment
As Paradise Falls, Genus Ordinis Dei, Despite - all great bands I found from this label
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.
New indie label with high quality releases right off the bat.
Metallica's very own record label - christangrant
A very important group for securing a source for Norwegian Black Metal groups like satyricon, darkthrone, thorns, enslaved, emperor and even wongraven. Very important.
It's a small label, but there are many awesome bands like Manowar, Rhapsody of fire, Luca Turilli,... - Iron
