Scandinavia's premiere rock/metal label Mighty Music was established in the autumn of 1997. During the years over 200 albums have been released, countless singles, thousands of songs published, numerous live events and a helluva lot of merchandise. We have worked and still work with artists like Artillery, Tygers Of Pan Tang, Mike Tramp, Solbrud, SEA, No Return, Marco Mendoza, Dim Mak, Panzerchrist, Brutality, Blitzkrieg, Forsaken, Lucer, Black Book Lodge, Thorium, Vanir and lots of other great bands.
This year, they are celebrating our 20 years in the music business with a 2-day anniversary festival, taking place in the heart of Copenhagen at the new venue Halmtorvet 9.
"Alongside the music industry in general, we have had many ups and downs in the history of Mighty Music. From being an all CD focused record company up 'til today when we are embracing the new technology with digital streaming and alternative ways of releasing and promoting artists alongside old school CD & LP releases. I still remember the term "please return my stamps" and still remember all the hard work we put into the label back in the days and still do. I am very proud of the fact that Mighty Music are still around and bigger and stronger than ever. We will gladly take another 20 years in ring.I'm still metal, have long hair and a beautiful wife. My partner in crime, Bjarke Ahlstrand has short hair today, but a beautiful new wife and is still pretty metal :)" Michael H. Andersen, Mighty Music

Imminence Records will be fundraising this year during the 2016 edition of Extra Life. Extra Life is an event where gamers usually stream themselves playing games for 24 hours, usually on the official Game Day which is November 5th this year, in support of their chosen Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. While Imminence Records currently has no plans set for the streaming portion, they have set a donation goal of $500 by November 5th to support their local CMN hospital of James and Connie Maynard Children’s Hospital.
“Imminence Records has always cared about a lot more than just music. That along with the fact I am a gamer has led us to decide to take part in this year’s Extra Life event. It also lets us give back to our local community which was just ravaged by Hurricane Matthew and is currently expecting flooding not seen since Hurricane Floyd.” – Ryan Williford (Owner)

The 'United Kingdom Extreme Metal' record label has decided to launch their own loyalty scheme as laid out below:-
The decision has been taken to launch a customer loyalty scheme, used as a ‘thank you‘ to everyone that shops in the web-store. It’s a very basic scheme in that for every order placed points are earned. Once a customer reaches 10 points they are entitled to a FREE cd with a value of anything up to £10. If you are a vinyl collector, save your points up and when you get to 20 points, chose a FREE vinyl!The software installed into the store keeps a count of points earned each time a customer buys from the store, so its going to be very easy. I will also ensure that every customers points total is being counted correctly and kept up to date.
Even if you don’t realise you have reached a total which earns a FREE title, don’t worry, you will be contacted via email reminding you that you can chose your FREE item
This is brand new and is a work in progress so i will be developing things in the coming weeks. Hopefully there wont be any ‘teething problems’, but if there are I will endeavour to resolve any issue immediately.
Any questions or concerns, please feel free to email: email@example.com
Thank you for your continued support and Happy Collecting!
