Description

Founded in 1993, Metal Scrap is the largest independent music label in the Ukraine. It's involved in releasing CDs from various metal styles, giving preference to thrash, death, black & others. It has a formidable distributors' grid all over the world & does not specialize in one particular style.

Trivia

The roots of Metal Scrap Records begin in 1993 as Metal Scrap Production. Its first release was Metal Scrap 'zine #1 in 1994. The first audio release was the compilation Thursday 13, released in 1995. By its third issue in 1997, Metal Scrap 'zine was considered among the five best zines in Russia/Ukraine up to that period.

The beginning of the new millennium proved a difficult period for Metal Scrap Production. Somewhere in mid-2003, the label stopped its activity & gave no official statement to the press. In 2007, Metal Scrap Production reanimated with the two-disc compilation Eastern Storms, its first release since 2003. The search for prospective bands to release & distribution began once again. In mid-2009, after a couple of successful releases, the label & its five sub-labels (including its booking & promo agencies) were united under the common name of Scrap Metal Records.

2010 proved to be a productive year for Metal Scrap Records. The new sub-label, Total Metal Records, appeared, and with its successful releases elevated its parent label into the ranks of other leading independent underground metal labels in the post-Soviet Union territory.

By 2011-2012, the company attained #1 status among metal labels in the Ukraine by releasing the best domestic & foreign releases. In mid-2013, a second sub-label called Another Side Records appeared. Simultaneously, an independent booking agency called Metalurg Concert Agency joined the label to become yet another sub-division, this one with the sole intention to organize concerts & tours of promising native & foreign bands.
