Please present your label, when and where was it started, who is involved in its activities and what genres are promoted by it.
Our label was started in 2001 in Moscow, RUSSIA. First our release was compilation of young metal bands from our region, which were supported by MUSICA Web-zine (http://musica.mustdie.ru). Real activities started in 2004, when was released our first album of DRYADOS from Barnaul, Siberia. We work with different kind of metal music from heavy-power-metal to black and death-metal.
 
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 released more than 50 releases for this 8 years. I couldn’t say clearly what CDs are most important from this list. I think we can talk about bands with more than 1 album in our catalogue. For example it’s Ukrainian melodic black-metal band HOLY BLOOD with 4 albums, black-metal band from Moscow Nechist’ with 3 albums, epic melodic black-metal ARCANE GRAIL with 2 albums, Canadian power-metal band FORGOTTEN TALES with 2 albums. Most of our releases are stil available.
