Napalm Records

Napalm Records

Over twenty years ago, a story of success began in the Austrian town of Eisenerz. What started out as a one-person operation in a cramped living-room, became one of the biggest record labels of the independent scene. Fans of the heavier genres have long come to know the name "Napalm Records". As of today, Napalm has released more than 600 albums – many of which have reached cult status.

In the beginning, Napalm Records focused mainly on the black metal releases of bands like ABIGOR and SUMMONING. Although both managed to create a style all of their own, SUMMONING in particular was most successful in taking their unique atmospheric style way past the European borders to reach an unbelievable level of notoriety on an international level.

A very important addition to the roster of the Austrian label are the chartbreaking Heavy Metal wolves POWERWOLF, the international renowned and hard touring DEVILDRIVER and Dez Fafara’s other band COAL CHAMBER, as well as DELAIN, KAMELOT and THE ANSWER.
