Happy 2nd Birthday!!!

UKEM RECORDS is 2 today, 19.11.13
Yes, this time 2 years ago I made the massive leap from Facebook group to label. Its been a massive learning curve; but a really enjoyable one. From very modest beginnings we have grown quite a lot as a label, although its safe to say, we are still very small scale compared to some – but that’s how i’d like to keep it! Small steps over a prolonged period of time. This will ensure the label will continue to grow at a manageable pace (I do have a day job and 2 small kids as well!). I’d like to thank everyone that has supported the label – the zines, the radio stations, the other labels ive worked with. All the bands that have been on the roster so far, and to everyone that has, and continues to buy our cd’s and merch. Without you guys, the label just wouldn’t exist because we couldn’t afford to fund future releases without everyone’s support!!! Huge horns high to everyone and here’s to a (hopefully) successful and prolonged future \m/
As its the labels 2nd birthday, ALL orders for UKEM CD releases now get a FREE CD!!!! (includes all pre-orders on our next release) check out our releases here: http://www.ukemrecords.co.uk/product-category/ukem-records-releases/

New Signing Announced

We are very pleased to announce that the newest addition to the UKEM roster are black metallers VEHEMENT. An E.P and album deal has been agreed and we are set to release the band’s debut e.p ‘Collapse’ in the summer of 2014 quickly followed by the band’s debut full length album (as yet untitled and currently being written). Epic in proportions and playing harsh and brutal black metal, we believe VEHEMENT are unique to the UK extreme metal underground and is an excellent addition to the label and are really looking forward to working with them!

The Obscene – Album update

Preparations have now been finalised for the release of the debut full length album from The Obscene. Entitled ‘Architects Of Deliverance’, this new opus features 11 tracks of raw, brutal old school death metal. Due for release on 02.12.13, we have posted two brand new tracks online as a “teaser” for what to expect from the release. First track to be unveiled was ‘Sonderkommando’ which deals with the very disturbing events that took place in the Nazi death camps during WW2.

The second track to be released was ‘Dawn Of Suffering’, another nasty affair that is based on a true story surrounding religious fanatics that tortured their own children – sickening stuff, but a fact of the sick society we live in today!

featuring stunning artwork, this album is set to be a truly sick release!
