Discográficas, vol. 2

(Heavy Metal Super Star)

Sello japonés fundado por Yohta Takahashi y que en un principio tenía como objetivo apoyar a la banda de Black/Thrash Metal Sabbat, pero que posteriormente abrió sus puertas a otras bandas de Japón como Abigail o Unholy Grave y también internacionales: Nunslaughter o Impiety.

"Thanks for your long time support to this small but core label. Since we launched up in the year of 1999 as a label, or in 1987 as an underground zine, a plenty of time has passed away and still the metal is in active. We wish this label is standing in a part of hitory.

HMSS was found for supporting Sabbat out of Japan because when we start this action, there were unfortuantelly no domestic indie label which strongly... diehard-ly... and blindly supports the band even Sabbat at that moment was rising up the STARDOM as a national black metal hero in the very far east. We believe what we did through HMSS could get a great benefit onto the scene and many of you are enjoying the Sabbat on time. Ooops, We are very proud that we could get in touch with some able bands beside Sabbat/Gorgon. Unholy Grave, Nunslaughter, Impiety and now Abigail & Voidd. Hope you'll try them, these sweet poisons.

We are sorry that our pricing is much expensive compairing with other labels from Euro/USA. Because we make vinyls in the States, so far away, and we have to spend huge money for transporting, also bank charges are one of the top cost problem for us. And Japan market is very narrow and we can't make more than 100-150. It effects direct to the price.

To make your satisfaction fully enough, we have taken the handmade process in manufacturing the items. We make the T-shirts by ourselves, we make the jackets by ourselves and we make all by ourselves. Please do understand we supply you records with fantasy.

About foreign bands, we are not thinking forward to do new jobs. Because almoast all of the foreign bands who contact us are without own strategy. HMSS is not a cheap label to make your records instantly and sell terribly cheap like air for making small money. Our satisfaction is not at be an underground charisma, but at being a true supporter for maniac FANS. If your band considers well and deep about the future of the scene, we can offer you some space for activities. But we can't help you if you just play bands without strategy. What's your goal ?

We hate alot of indie labels makes cheap die-hard version and collecting money from you. It brings the very end to the scene itself. Say NO to these fake die-hards like color vinyl, small patch, nice looking jacket (There is a company in USA which makes special jackets) etc. That's the reason why we made Sabbat-UUU doLP and Nunslaughter NNN LP. Find yourself what we meant of.

HMSS of 2008 will be never changed. We're keeping going on this local jobs for maniac fans. If you're intend to make money by reselling our items on e-bay, quit yourself from the scene.

Yohta Takahashi"
