Italian indie label that started out in the early 80's by releasing a few new wave/punk platters. With the exception an English Dogs license pressing they didn't do anything even close to Metal until their 9th release, so there's where I've started this list. They went on hiatus in the early 90's but later came back as the "NEW LM Records" (apparently Paul Chain is involved in some way seeing as how he is credited as producer on a number of records) and now releases anything from Black/Death Metal to folk, pop, electro etc.. You can read more and even order some of their old releases here.
To be honest I find most of their output pending between decent and mediocre, but there's a few titles I haven't heard yet so you'll never know. Also, LM started up a short-lived sublabel called Fireball in 1989. Their 3 releases are added at the bottom of this list.
