Indie Recordings is label number 200

Bandcamp has grown a lot a since they began in 2008. As as small example of that growth just look at our Metal Labels On Bandcamp page. Back in 2011 I wrote an article for our rowdy, but big-hearted brothers at No Clean Singing
Bandcamp has grown a lot a since they began in 2008. As a small example of that growth just look at our Metal Labels On Bandcamp page. In 2011 I wrote an article for our older brother, the rowdy, but big-hearted No Clean Singing, called Black Goats and Candlelights: 10 Metal Record Labels on Bandcamp. Back then there was less than 20 labels on the list.

Now it's 2016, five years later, and Indie Recordings just became label number 200 to be added to the list! And the official opening of their Bandcamp page was even announced with a proper press release:
Founded in 2005, Indie Recordings is the home to a unique hard rock, hardcore, and metal roster. The label has released over 100 albums including recordings from Enslaved, Satyricon, 1349, Warduna, El Caco, Kvelertak, Cult Of Luna, and more. Pre-orders for new albums from King and Sahg will launch in the coming week.
Right now the page is a bit underwhelming with 24 albums and 64 singles (?). But look at the artists page; so many great bands there, surely a sign of good things to come. All that said, if you look around there are some good finds like this Enslaved live album from 2008, the latest from Gehenna, and my favorite Kampfar's Djevelmakt from 2014.


Keeping it in the family, Andy Synn from No Clean Singing wrote that "Kampfar are in the midst of an ongoing (and seemingly unstoppable) creative and critical renaissance", called Djevelmakt "ravenous" and bestowed it with this very fitting haiku review.

Hellish. Heroic.
Riffs that prowl like wolves. Blood red.
Pure as driven snow.

Listen and you will agree...



Note: In August you will get a free 26-song sampler with every full album purchase on the Indie Recordings Bandcamp.
