Best Record Label

A389 Recordings

This year, A389 Recordings, powered by the seemingly limitless energy of founder Dom Romeo, enters its 10th year of putting out quality metal and hardcore records. Its back catalog is packed, featuring great local acts as well as national and international ones. But even compared to the label’s long history, the past year stands out, with the first new recording in eight years by legendary sludge band EYEHATEGOD, the discovery of Noisem, total burners by locals Full of Hell and Ilsa, and discs from Iron Reagan and Integrity. They also transformed the long-running A389 Bash from a one-day concert into a three-day, multi-venue festival. And to top it off, they convinced Canadian hardcore legends Left for Dead to reunite for a series of shows and to record new material. No one is doing more to keep heavy, dark music alive in Baltimore, and A389 is doing it with consistent attention to detail, work ethic, and legitimate concern for the fans.
