Another label from Mr. Axel Thubeauville, also responsible for familiar imprints like Aaarrg, Bonebreaker, Earthshaker and US Metal. Possibly his most successful venture, much thanx to the first European licening of SEPULTURA.

Only the vinyl-years are covered, since they also felt the most appealing to my personal taste and thus on-topic for this site. You can check the Shark Records webpage for more of their releases, though the presentation is a bit chaotic.

NOTE:
I think that a few of those last ones are only available on vinyl as very limited, sleeveless promos. If anyone knows of more, later promo-vinyls like these, please get in contact.
