Please present your label, when and where was it started, who is involved in its activities and what genres are promoted by it.
Katoptron IX Recs is a Black Metal label formed by a group of friends and our activities began in 2011. Our only aim is to release the material we want in the appropriate format of each release.

Tell us a few words on each or the most important releases of your label, and which of them are still available for purchase.
We have 3 releases so far: The demo tape of Iasma "Le Messe Noir” lim. to 100 copies, the 7” split EP between Primeval Mass and Ezgaroth "Amongst the Ruins of Cosmos/Nightside” lim. to 300 copies and the new Primeval Mass album "Blood Breathing Idols”, on CD. The Iasma tape is sold out, the 7” (few copies left) and the CD are available. For orders/information our contact address is katoptron.ix@gmail.com and also, in association with Secret Doctrines and Serpent Race Propaganda, we have our distro list updated with additional interesting titles.

What are the most important features you look for in a band that is or has the chance to be signed on your label?
Typically, quality is enough but we are not looking for any specific feature now because we are not looking for any new band at the moment, unfortunately.

How can a band get in touch with you? What should bands know before submitting their promos for your consideration?
We actually don’t accept promos this time period. We have our schedule full with the upcoming releases and until further notice we will not be looking for other bands.

What's the most important thing in the relationship between you and your bands? What is your label offering to its bands?
Some members of these bands are involved with Katoptron IX, so it is a friend circle.

Is there anything you planned with your label and has not yet been completed?
We have a number of releases planned but they will soon be out.

How does the future looks for your label? Any major projects you would like to share with us?
As I said, we have some interesting releases on plans, for now I’d like to mention only the new album of Bethor (gre) and the split Primeval Mass/Iasma. Also, Acheron’s "Those who have risen” will be available in vinyl format very soon, through Secret Doctrines.

How can anyone get in touch with you? Please list your website, webstore and/or social media links.
Our website is under construction. In the meanwhile, those interested can find us on facebook, or they can directly contact us in the address: katoptron.ix@gmail.com
