Canadian label which made a few unique signings in their early days but later concentrated purely on licensing foreign acts. They seem to have had some heavy ties to the American Grudge Records and at the moment I'm not really sure about which of those bands originally belonged to which label. Not an issue that will keep you awake at night I'm sure.

Not to be confused with the Italian label with the same name (DARK QUARTERER, FINGERNAILS + loads of non-Metal releases..)
