A389 Recordings is no more
A389 Recordings, Domenic Romeo’s killer metal and hardcore label that is home to releases by Full of Hell, Integrity, Iron Reagan, Noisem, Ringworm, The Black Dahlia Murder, Weekend Nachos, Xibalba, and more, has come to an end. Dom writes:
Closed down the official A389 webstore today. Most of our titles are out of print / won’t be repressed save for a few popular ones that will be available via distributors / stores. It’s been a wild ride from operating out of the bedroom of my old house to two huge storage units to the final spot in my current basement.
Most of the stuff is gone and can be picked up via Cobraside Distribution Inc. RevHQ.com and State of Mind Records / Distro or of course from the bands themselves.
A few things will still be available on our bandcamp page and our discogs page as well as on across all digital platforms. (working on redirecting the websites)
Thank you to all our customers and bands for the insane 14+ years of love and support. Most of our active bands bands have since released music on the best label going: Relapse Records.
So yeah that’s it. As for me, it’s been a wild ride and I’ve been enjoying the quiet. Catch me playing in INTEGRITY if we’re in your neck of the woods. See you around
A389 Recordings 2004-2018
Bummer to say goodbye to such a great label, but at least, as Dom points out, many A389 bands are currently active on Relapse, including Integrity who Dom is currently playing guitar for. Last year, Dom told us his favorite albums of 2017.
