Selo ajudou a criar a história do Heavy Metal

Os primeiros selos especializados em Heavy Metal surgiram a partir de 1980 e sem dúvida, a Metal Blade de Los Angeles foi uma das principais gravadoras que incentivou o Heavy Metal principalmente devido ao amor pelo metal de seu fundador, Brian Slagel.

Os lançamentos incluem discos lendários de Slayer a Amon Amarth, de Voivod a Fates Warning, de Goo Goo Dolls a Cannibal Corpse, e muitos outros.

Para comemorar os 35 anos da gravadora que segue firme e com fé no Metal, a Loudwire listou os 35 lançamentos historicamente mais significativos já feitos pela Metal Blade.
