The "Rock House" in question was a live venue founded in 1982 and located in Kagurazaka-neighborhood in Tokyo and they're still around today. Apart from a few early, cult'n'classic Heavy Metal releases they were mostly known for spearheading the Japanese Thrash-scene in the mid/late 80's.

I've included all releases I've found info on, including plenty of punk/alternative ones for the sake of continuity and trivia-scores. Once again the serial#s are a bit of a mess, but from the DOOM 7" and onward they seem to be indexed by the 2-3 last digits.
