4 albums and then some out today!

We're not releasing only 1 album today, but 4 albums at once. One from Octohawk and three from Ask the Slave. And to top it all you could get all 3 albums from Ask the Slave in a box-set.

Octohawk releases their debut album, Animist. An album filled with 10 songs full of sludgy, proggy, and groovy heavy metal.

From Ask the Slave you will get their brand new progressive metal with WTF!?-factor album God Things Bad People. Also available now are the re-releases of their two first albums Kiss Your Chora (Remixed & Remastered) and The Order of Things (Remastered). Both containing bonus tracks.

All albums are available as Digipak CDs, Digital Downloads, and streaming on all major streaming services.

It is with a heavy heart (no pun intended), we have to announce yet again postponements for some of our projects.

All postponements are once again due to production problems at the production facilities related to the Covid19-pandemic.

We are as sick and tired of this virus and the problem it causes as any of you. But the health of the production staff is and will always be the main focus.
That said, we have also taken necessary measures to avoid this ever happening again for upcoming future projects.

The postponements apply to these two projects:

Marius Danielsen's Legend of Valley Doom  - Part 3 - Gatefold Double LP

Unfortunately, the LPs have been delayed. We hoped to have them ready for the release date, but due to both a problem with the test press that set us back a few weeks and the extended production time due to the Covid19-pandemic, it was unfortunately impossible.

At the moment, we don't have an exact date for delivery, but we will update you as soon as we know.

We will compensate the ones affected by this with a code for a digital download of the album. The code will be sent to you on the day of the release.

The CD orders will start shipping by the end of this week.


Clive Nolan - Song of the Wildlands

We are sorry to announce that the whole release will be postponed. This is due to extended production times for both the CD Earbook and the two editions of the Gatefold Double LP.

In co-operation with We Låve Rock Music and Clive Nolan, we have decided on a new release date set for September 1st.

The reason for such a lengthy postponement is mainly to avoid a release date during the summer break and maybe yet another unforeseen delay.

The good news is that we will also produce a Digipak CD version of the album due to many requests by you. This will be added to preorder very soon.



We are genuinely sorry for all the inconvenience this causes.

Thank you for your understanding, patience, and support of all our artists. We appreciate it.

All the best,

Crime Records

CMM and CRIME RECORDS partners up!

CMM and Norwegian Cult Label CRIME RECORDS:
New Partnership Walked by Faith in Fairness towards Artists

CMM GmbH, known for working with big names in the music biz as well as for caring for independent artists from all around the globe with their Service for Artist Owned Labels (SAOL), has now entered a partnership with the Norwegian independent label Crime Records AS. Kicking off with the kaleidoscopic all-star concept Marius Danielsen's Legend of Valley Doom and the grand finale of his epic trilogy in February, the like-minded companies will join forces to help extraordinary artists with nurturing their own self-sustainability.

Founded back in 2013 by amongst others Martin Steene (Iron Fire), Crime Records’ primary focus lies on fairness towards their artists, explicitly refraining from practices such as oppressive contracts. The label’s A&R team is known for their ability to find inventively outstanding approaches to rock and metal and therefore re-shaping particularly the progressive flanks throughout these genres. In recent years, Crime Records’ honest modesty and clear vision have gained the interest of renowned cult artists such as prog mastermind Clive Nolan (Arena, Pendragon) and multi-instrumentalist Asgeir Mickelson (Veil of Secrets, ex-Borknagar++), who have already signed up. And with a passion for music, they're not afraid to take on art-projects such as the debut from critically acclaimed Vitam Aeternam.

CMM Head Of Promo Sonja about the new cooperation: “After 2020, looking at this new year packed with exciting releases by a line-up of perky artists gets us thrilled!”. Thomas Steen-Larsen, CEO of Crime Records, adds: "We're really looking forward to getting this new partnership (rockin' and) rolling! It became clear to us quite early that the passion, vision, and general vibe presented to us was something we could connect to. So we're excited to be able to present our upcoming projects with CMM in our corner."
