The first record that is released by a label is often a compilation. So, if it's good enough for them then it's surely good enough for us? We are therefore proud to announce the release of CLBR0001.
This album captures the sounds of the UK metal underground in 2017 - which, incidentally, is one of the strongest scenes we have ever known. Featuring a diverse range of bands that are actively releasing and performing music right now, this record demonstrates the everlasting passion that musicians have for capturing the depths of the current time. Whether it comes from the bleak heaviness of Heriot, or the expansive black metal of Vehement through to the desolation of Garganjua, every band is drawing from their collective experiences and their journeys through life in an effort to portray their story.
Every day bands play in venues and clubs across the UK - often largely unsupported - yet they continue with the stubborn determination that their message and their song will be, and must be, heard. They are filled with the most extraordinary belief and are, more than anyone else, relevant to the current time. They paint the world with sounds and leave themselves open to the senses of not just this generation, but every generation that follows.
We are proud to support these bands, these people, these friends. They are the sounds of the UK.
