After we had been trying to keep embarrassments like Kazjurol a secret from the world outside of Sweden, these bastards came an gave them a bloody record deal(!)
Thanx a lot assholes! Promoting Metal Masters like ANACRUSIS and CANDLEMASS only just barely makes up for it.

Anyway, Active Records was a sublabel to Music For Nations/Zomba Music Group. They started out as Axis Records but changed their name to Active Records after only a handful of releases. This should be their complete discography.

Albums start right below - their few EPs start down here.
