A classic German label formed by renowned Metal-scenester Axel Thubeauville, also the mastermind behind Bonebreaker. He also co-founded Aaarrg Records with Ralf Hubert and later formed his own Shark Records as well as U.S. Metal Records. Various old Earthshaker releases are now being re-released by Alex' new label Rusty Diamond. You can read a thorough interview with Alex here, made by the Metal Kings webzine.

To my knowledge this should be the complete Earthshaker discography.

Noticed how the pricetags of even the most common of the old better Metal albums has risen in the last couple of years? Luckily there's some exceptions and this classic can still be found for an even €10'er = no excuses.

Living Death
Vengeance Of Hell - new remix
LP
1985
Can German Speed Metal get any cooler than "My Victim"?

First released on Mausoleum Records, but later remixed (on public demand?) and issued on Earthshaker. Surprisingly enough, this remix does sound better than the original, but you miss out on the lyric insert only available with the Mausoleum pressing.

Carrie
Secrets
LP
1986
When it's not completely buried in the mix, Steffi's warbling, new-wave'y voice brings a welcomed last touch of originality to Carrie's already brilliant, stand-up-straight Heavy Metal. Not a half-bad song on the whole album.
