SPINEFARM RECORDS UK was officially launched during the Autumn of 2007, as a way of giving added push & profile to the label’s impressive – and ever-growing roster – of hard rockin’ talent.

Since starting up in Helsinki back in 1990, Spinefarm has concentrated on developing the darker, more dramatic side of Finnish music for both the domestic and the international markets, scoring major successes with acts such as Nightwish, Children Of Bodom & Sonata Arctica.

With Finnish music now exerting a serious influence on the hard rock/heavy metal scene per se, it was really only a matter of time before Spinefarm (now in full partnership with Universal Music) made a more concerted assault on UK shores …

Well, that time has come, and with a roster that also includes Five Finger Death Punch, Backyard Babies, Tarja, Ensiferum, Rotten Sound, Kiuas, Swallow the Sun, Pain, Moonsorrow, MUCC and more, the label finds itself perfectly placed to retain its underground kudos, whilst at the same time using the international clout of Universal to spread its reputation and further develop its roster.

    Hey guys ! I wanted to inform you that recently we released digitally our debut album, featuring John West (Artension,Royal Hunt),Steve DiGiorgio (Iced Earth, Sadus,Death, Testament), Charlie Zeleny, Vitalij Kuprij and many other talented musicians. Help support Mythodea by rating, reviewing or liking our music in the digital stores (iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody etc) or websites. It seems that it counts a lot for spreading our name and music around. We hope that you enjoy our debut album, and we will give you more in the future. Have a great Sunday ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vf5GtEBqJ3Q Christos Nikolaou www.MythodeaBand.com www.facebook.com/MythodeaBand
