Hydra Head Records Faces "Imminent Demise," To Cease Operations In Near Future

In what amounts to a heavy blow to the extreme music community, Hydra Head Records has announced that it will soon be closing up shop. The news of the 20-year-old label’s “imminent demise” was revealed in a blog post penned by co-founder and ISIS vocalist/guitarist Aaron Turner.

“Hydra Head Records has never been a smooth-running operation,” writes Turner. “We’ve spent the majority of our existence excitedly scrambling from one thing to the next, taking on more than we could ever possibly hope to achieve, and never quite finding solid footing in the midst of our self-induced whirlwind of chaos.”
