Shadow of the Horns: Five Labels Keeping Metal Interesting in 2019
Sargent House: Los Angeles-based Sargent House, founded and owned by Cathy Pellow, put out their first release in 2006, which is a pretty excellent streak. Somehow, their roster only continues to grow stronger. It’s not strictly a metal label, with new albums by artists such as Ioanna Gika showing the full range of their sound. And artists like Chelsea Wolfe and Emma Ruth Rundle are more metal-adjacent than proper metal, but that’s what makes them interesting. Aside from being a strong brand with, by all accounts, a family dynamic, they never stop delivering the heavy, boundary-pushing goods.
