Heaviness is an extreme. Heaviness is not a familiar or rehashed listening experience.
Heaviness is pushing the envelope. Heaviness is creating something new out of raw emotion.
It is not only the volume of your band, the equipment you use, or the influences that
you may be drawing from that you achieve heaviness through, but most importantly
the passion for communicating your artistic ideal to your audience.
Music is an art form. It is the sculpting of sound.
We are a label run by management whose combined experience performing and touring
nationally, promoting and booking both nationally and internationally, promoting
internationally, and recording is over fifteen years. Our goal is to run a label that
treats bands the way we prefer to be treated when it comes to all matters of production,
distribution, and promotion of our artwork.
This is one of the contributing factors to our ethical ideal of treating every band with a standard level
of dignity and respect. Our intent through our releases is to demonstrate what speaks to us
and what we consider to be HEAVY. We offer the option of affordable studio time at K Hole Studios
in Virginia, as well as booking and networking utilizing the artwork as a focal point of conversation.
We believe in the importance of supporting fellow musicians. This label is built on a
foundation of fostering a supportive community ethic that many other musicians and
fans of heavy music alike may benefit from.

HH007 - Pleroma Majick - limited to 15 copies, experimental avant garde BM influence:
"When Paul Joyce aka The Heirs of Rockefeller aka 70s Italian horror-prog band Kobold
agreed to take on the Isle of the Damned soundtrack, I knew it would help elevate
the movie to new heights, but he really exceeded all expectations, and went above
and beyond the call of duty. It's really something special. We even included it on the
DVD as MP3 files. Now, 2 years later, he's revisted the soundtrack with 40 minutes
of all new dance remixes that are "club-ready." You can file this one under "I Still
Can't Believe This Exists." This extremely limited vinyl pressing, also comes with
a mp3 download card. - M. Colgrove, Direwit Films

Heavy Hound Records can be the perfect label for a heavy band
whom intends on independently releasing their own material
already. Joining forces with the Hound gives many artists the
benefits of mutually supporting and promoting one another, thus
broadening the scope of exposure, all whilst accomplishing a
goal already set. There are no contracts or limitations to what
any band/artist/writer can do with Heavy Hound –
this is what you make of it!
