Relapse Records

Relapse Records Bio:

Based in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA, Relapse Records is world-renowned for its diversity and dedication to decidedly left-of-center music. Relapse sidesteps the trends of the day. In the fourteen years since the label's inception, Relapse has established itself as a fan's label - one that combines an enthusiasm for providing extreme music fans with the highest quality, most well-packaged releases with a forward-thinking musical foresight.

With a current roster that includes, but is not limited to, universally recognized artists and genre leaders such as the DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, NEUROSIS, MASTODON, NILE, HIGH ON FIRE, SUFFOCATION, PIG DESTROYER and vidnaObmana, Relapse advances its unwavering resolve and aesthetic, providing both long time music fans, and enthusiastic new hard music devotees alike with an incomparable cross-section of today's most innovative prime-movers.
