    What's your favourite record label and why?



    I think that I'd say that mine is either Drive-Thru Records or Geffen Records. Drive-Thru because there are a lot of good bands that play the type of music I'm into and Geffen because they owned Drive-Thru for a while so bands I like a lot are/where on it, and bands like Papa Roach are on it aswell
    silence your critics

    Epic were great in the 90s, with Korn, Rage Against The Machine and Stone Temple Pilots, but by 2005 all three of those will no longer be signed to them. So I'll say Roadrunner. A few other good ones are Vagrant, Fat Wreck Chords and Geffen.

    I'd easily have to say Wind-Up because every band i know about that is on this reord label i like. My next favorite label would probably ahve to be Arista or Island.

    Five Minute Walk, simply because they don't screw around with the music of the bands they host.
    So, I'm going to go kick Abaddon in the balls. Later.

    Century Media Records:
    [*]Arch Enemy[*]Blind Guardian[*]Borknagar[*]Children of Bodom[*]Dark Tranquility[*]Dimension Zero[*]Eyes on Fire[*]God Forbid[*]Heaven Shall Burn[*]Into Eternity[*]Krisiun[*]Lacuna Coil[*]Moonspell[*]Naglfar[*]Napalm Death[*]Old Man's Child[*]Shadows Fall[*]Strapping Young Lad

    Metal Blade Records:[*]Amon Amarth[*]Ancient[*]As I Lay Dying[*]The Black Dahlia Murder[*]Callenish Circle[*]Lamb of God[*]Unearth[*]Vader[*]Vomitory

    Much respect.
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    In the fell clutch of circumstance
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
    Under the bludgeonings of chance
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.

    Beyond this place of wrath and tears
    Looms but the Horror of the shade,
    And yet the menace of the years
    Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate:
    I am the captain of my soul.

    I'd have to say Wind-Up

    • Alter Bridge
    • 12 Stones
    • Seether
    • Submersed
    • Atomship
    • Drowning Pool
    • Evanescence
    • Edgewater
    • Creed


    I have alot of respect for Wind-Up, they treat thier bands like people rather than buisness. When Dave (ex-singer of Drowning Pool) passed away, Wind-Up financially funded his family to buy a new house and take care of them in any way they needed, just because Dave promised his family he would look after them and obviously couldn't when he passed. That's just respect.

    Wow, I was about to make the same topic . My favourite would have to be Roadrunner. But I'd have to disagree with you, I think Wind-Up is a bad record label.

    About Wind-Up, didn't they force Evanescence to do things that they didn't want to do? (this isnt just directed at Linkinescence but, im asking everyone)

    They tried to force the band to add an MC, but as you can see, that didn&#39;t work out.
