Band Album Type Year Catalog Format 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 - Século 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, São Paulo. In the same year the label produced the compilation Warfare Noise I, including the bands Sarcófago, Chakal, Holocausto and Mutilator. By the end of the year, Sepultura was the label’s most popular band, being praised by many specialized magazines around the world. Another huge international success is the band Sarcófago, whose albums Rotting and The Laws of Scourge were released in Europe.

The label now hosts many bands of varying styles of hardcore/punk and metal.

Cogumelo's catalogue is distributed in the USA by Greyhaze Records.
