Battle Cry Records was founded in 2004 by me as follow up label to Iron Glory records. I decided to
change the name to Battle Cry Records, since my business with selling CDs and records on conventions was already registered under Battle Cry records and I wanted to make clear that Battle Cry Records is my own company where I´m just releasing what I really want to. I´m still friends with my former label partners Jörg and Jens, but having a label with other people together means you have to accept some compromises regarding what to release. Since I like the typical 80ties Metal and Hard Rock myself, I will mainly focus on Re-Issues of old obscure albums and Demos from the 80ties to early 90ties. You will not find any modern sounding bands or Death and Black Metal on Battle Cry, since it´s just not what I´m listening to. You can find a massive colletion of Black and Death Metal CDs in our Onlineshop, since as a record dealer you can not only sell what you personally like, but on the label you will only find the traditional Metal Sound.
Some bands that I personally liked I took over from Iron Glory Records to Battle Cry like Manilla Road, Wind Wraith and Solitaire.
Most of the other titles are Reissues of the old German label GAMA records, who had great bands like Stormwitch, Tyrant, Necronomicon, Darkness, SDI, Vectom, Stranger, Gravestone, Noisehunter and other Reissues from lost 80ties Metal gems like Powersurge, Battle Bratt...
After a long break for over two years we did some classic Metal Reissues at the beginning of 2013, like Cold Steel, Bishop Steel, Briar, Hardline and Monolith.
