Description

Famous metal label from New York City, NY, found by Jon (aka Jonny Z) and Marsha Zazula, responsible for helping promote thrash metal in the 1980s by issuing some of the earliest releases by Metallica, Anthrax, Overkill, and Testament. They were also one of the first US-based labels to distribute titles by Venom and Mercyful Fate. The label's profile declined in 1990s but they are still active and have issued records by non-metal bands such as Bad Brains, Clutch, the Meat Puppets, Ace Frehley and Disco Biscuits and well as more metallic bands like Ministry and Anthrax.
