Earache Records was founded in 1986 in Nottingham, helping to kickstart a global music revolution in the process. The label was responsible for some of the very first extreme metal recordings ever released, launching the careers of metal pioneers such as Napalm Death, Morbid Angel and Carcass and ushering in a new scene standard which still thrives to this very day.
Following the worldwide explosion and success of the grindcore and death metal scenes it helped to create, Earache spearheaded the thrash metal revival in the late ’00s along with the return of NWOBHM-style heavy metal, before expanding its range to blues rock in the form of rising superstars Rival Sons and The Temperance Movement.
With three Top 20 UK chart hits in the last year alone, two Guinness World Records to its name, and tracks featured in Hollywood blockbuster movies and chart-smashing video games, Earache’s innovation and contribution to the music world is unquestioned. The label is still fully independent and founder-owned after over 25 years, with one eye kept proudly on the past and one firmly focused on the stars of tomorrow.
