A warehouse containing stock for more than 150 record labels — including Nuclear Blast, Victory and Vagrant — was burned to the ground in north London, England during the riots last night. The stock, which was to be distributed by the [PIAS] Group, was being held at a three-story, 20,000 square-meter building in Enfield, owned by Sony DADC.
[PIAS], the U.K.’s largest distributor of indie music, said in a statement, “There was a fire last night at the Sony DADC warehouse which services the physical distribution for PIAS in the U.K. and Ireland. PIAS is working closely with Sony DADC, who are implementing their emergency plans. PIAS‘s U.K. offices in London and all other areas of our business are unaffected. More information will be communicated shortly to all our labels and partners.”
A complete list of labels affected by the fire can be found at this location. Source: Blabbermouth.net
Swedish melodic metallers ASTRAL DOORS have posted the song “Victory” from their recently released collection, “Testament Of Rock – The Best Of Astral Doors”, on their MySpace page.
The band states, “‘Victory’ was first made in Swedish to honor our favourite Swedish hockey team, Leksands I, but now, a year later, we wanna give the English version to the world. This version is more of a tribute to the game itself, not to a certain team. A rumor says that an unofficial homemade video to ‘Victory’ is in the making. If we like it, we’ll [release it] as well!”
