Late 1990 Roberto Mammarella (Monumentum) founded an amateurish label called Obscure Plasma Records based in Vanzago, Milano area. After 12 releases (mostly 7" singles) from 1991 to 1993 the label became more professional and was renamed to Avantgarde Music in 1994.

They became one of the leading metal labels in Italy, releasing bands like Behemoth, Carpathian Forest, Dark Sanctuary, Katatonia, Mayhem, Opera IX, Shining, Taake amongst many others.
