Description

Cogumelo was first established as a rock store in 1980, and began to host the newborn metal label Cogumelo Records in 1985. In this year, the label recorded its first album, the split LP (one side for each band) from Overdose and Sepultura. The album Sepultura - Bestial Devastation and Overdose - Seculo XX was recorded at JG Studios using only 8 tracks. Each side of the split LP originated different CD releases.

In 1986 Cogumelo decided to release Sepultura’s first full length LP, Morbid Visions, recorded using 16 tracks at Vice-Versa Studio, Sao Paulo. In the same year the label produced the compilation Warfare Noise I, including the bands Sarcofago, Chakal, Holocausto and Mutilator. By the end of the year, Sepultura was the label’s main character, being praised by many specialised magazines around the world. Another huge international success is the band Sarcofago, which albums Rotting and The Laws of Scourge were released in Europe.

The label hosts today artists of many musical styles, ranging from various types of metal up to hardcore and punk, which mirrors the true underground music. Cogumelo is proud to be responsible for the success of such bands as Sepultura, Sarcofago and many others. Now, the label is releasing Drowned’s death/ thash metal, Calvary Death and Vulcano news albums.

Cogumelo has a lot of titles in its catalogue, many of them already released in the CD format. Its main goal now is to release in the CD format, through the Cogumelo Remasters series, all of its original classic albums.

Furthermore Cogumelo has always looked for distributing its titles along those of another independent labels. Its catalogue has exclusive USA territory distribution by Greyhaze Records.
