It’s been a long road for Metal Blade and a lot of their sucess has been attributed to working with just about any band that they like, no matter what they sound like. Founder Brian Slagel has been quoted as saying:
“To this day if I really like a band and if the staff really like it then no matter what they sound like we want to work with them, I’ve always liked a wide variety of sounds in metal, which I think is reflected in our roster, and I’ve never gotten into trying to sign a lot of bands that sound the same. I would personally rather find something that nobody else has heard of before, something that’s really different from what’s going on, and put that out.”
