RoadRUNNER International VINYL Discography

Roadrunner Records is a major record label that concentrates heavily on metalcore and nu-metal bands (with exceptions). The label was launched in the Netherlands in 1980 and was originally called "Roadracer Records". Roadrunner's initial business was importing North American metal into Europe. In 1986 Roadrunner opened its US headquarters in New York City and later opened offices in England, Germany, France, Japan and Australia. Early successes included albums from King Diamond (the first Roadrunner artist to enter the Billboard Top 200 albums chart) and Annihilator. The end of the 1980's saw the release of two albums that are now considered classics of their respective genres: Obituary's Slowly We Rot and Sepultura's Beneath The Remains.

Trivia:

Maarten de Boer: was the vinyl mastering engineer at The Masters, Netherlands. (formerly Holland Cutting Room). In the mid 80's he did all vinyl mastering for Roadrunner Records. In the stamper/matrix you may find his signature "Holland Cutting" hand-etched in the inner (running out grooves) of the vinyl lp's.

Some Roadrunner records have also been issued on the "Music for Nations" record label.

NASTY SAVAGE - Nasty Savage S/T Self-Titled

NASTY SAVAGE - Nasty Savage S/T Self-Titled

Nasty Savage was a thrash metal band originating from Brandon Florida, USA. The band rose to popularity primarily due to lead vocalist "Nasty" Ronnie Galetti's over-the-top stage show performances (in early shows Ronnie would smash television sets over his head.) The first album featuring the hit single "XXX" was recorded at Progressive Music in Tampa. These recordings helped get the band signed with heavy metal label Metal Blade Records. After releasing four albums between 1983 and 1989 they broke up. After there had been speculation about a reunion for some time, an album of new material was released in the spring of 2004. Since then, the band has played an occasional live show but has not recorded.
