We are looking for bands that are creating unique music. Primarily we are interested in doom, melodic death metal, atmospheric black metal, avantgarde, post-rock, shoegaze and their respective sub-genres. 

A few dos and don'ts...
- DO NOT attach MP3s in an email. 
- DO NOT submit deathcore or slam (WE'RE NOT INTERESTED!). 
- DO NOT send music without any other information. 
- DO NOT send music that's already been released digitally, unless it's a known release deserving of a physical re-issue.
- DO NOT send music that's been released on CD by another label and ask us to release it on vinyl. We ONLY release vinyl for bands exclusively on our label.

- DO include social links, bio, band photo(s), show/tour history, and other info.
- DO include a stream from soundcloud, bandcamp, youtube or similar streaming service for review.
