Ein Label, welches uns in letzter Zeit immer wieder mit tollen Releases verwöhnt, hört auf den Namen Ragnarök Records. Da hier im Gegensatz zu den meisten anderen Underground-Labels Qualität vor Quantität zur Geschäftsphilosophie gehört, wollen wir euch dieses kleine Label einmal ein bisschen näher vorstellen.
Wow, großartig! Ragnarök Records wird in der Ausgabe Juli 2018 (Nr. 374) des Rock Hard-Magazins mit ein Records-Special gefeatured.

... as releases No. 9, 10 and 11 will be unleashed upon you!
First is EUDOXIS`- The Gathering (RAG 009)
35 years after coming into existence for the very first time in 1983 the franco-canadian thrashers EUDOXIS have now decided to re-release all their previous and long sold out albums – the “Attack From Above-EP” (1986) and the full length “Open Fire” (1991) - on a special anniversary-compilation. The songlist is completed by two new tunes (2017/18) by the new formed follow up-band Screen with four of the ex-members.
Await some original and very intense thrash metal-tunes from the early canadian metal-days.
Second is the WITCHAVEN & MAZE OF TERROR-split-CD (RAG 010)
With the split “Death For Our Rivals” Ragnarök presents a thrash metal-assault that was originally released by californian Nero One-records on tape only. As there has been a big demand to release this on CD, we are proud to announce the release of this masterpiece for the first time on CD. Witchaven (San Bernardino, California) and Maze Of Terror (Lima, Peru) are two of the most zealousy, agile and popular underground acts worldwide.
If you are a true thrasher you have to nail “Death For Our Rivals”
And the third strike is STORMTHRASH – Systematic Annihilation (RAG 011)
Please welcome StormThrash onboard of Ragnarök Records and make sure not to miss this true masterpiece! Our european pressing contains – compared to the japanese version – two bonus tracks. Stormthrash is a fascinating newcomer and their debut-full length “Systematic Annihilation” will be hard to top for any thrash act in 2018!
Look at releases and bands to get more informations about them and make sure to visit the shop to buy those items!
With the anthology „Angels Of Darkness“ by Chicago-based thrash band SOULS DEMISE we are offering another CD that is a real gem for any thrash-fan. SOULS DEMISE was handled as the best unsigned thrash act of the millennium hailing from the Great Lakes-area. What you get is 15 songs with four different vocalists covering the whole period of their existence (1999-2011). One of the vocalists is Randy Barron, known for his fantastic work with Tyrants Reign & Winterkill.
If you are into thrash metal with great melodic guitars this one is definitely for you!
It will be a re-release of fascinating thrash metal from the early nineties! Rawhead, formed in 1990 near Seattle, were pushing a powerful fast aggressive metal style at a time when a flood of musicians and media descended into the Northwest hypnotized by the “grunge sound.”.
These contemporaries of “Forced Entry” (Combat Records), “Bitter End” and “Panic” (both Metal Blade), which they all quite often played with, will offer you all three of their demos (recorded from 1991 to 1994 - the last one was never officially released) on one CD. The songs are arranged in a track order that packs a punch. It’s proof that they had and still have a lot to offer to thrash lunatics and die-hard metal fans. From the speed pounding of “Something Crushes Spine” to the rapid-fire power of “Bones of all Men” to the psychotic gloom of “The Last One” this anthology demonstrates the potential of this killer machine ... read more
