Never compromise. Not even in the face of Armageddon. That's always been the difference between us ... (Rorschach)
Perhaps it's just what Rorschach said to Daniel, what fuels us as an independent label. This thought originated Sounds of Subterrania's work as a distribution. To help other labels selling their records, creating networks and to support each other. Now we've got a new tool and I hope it facilitates your work and the process of ordering. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. And I'm always open and thankful for any suggestions to improve the new concept.
Hope to hear from you soon!
... and now enjoy the digging!
