Century Media anniversary


Aug 30, 2001
To commemorate a decade of success in the metal business, Century Media Records will hold a tenth anniversary concert at the Roxy in Hollywood, California on Friday, September 28. The show will feature performances from some of Century Media's most celebrated North American artists, including Devin Townsend Featuring Strapping Young Lad, <B>Nevermore</B>, Skinlab, Shadows Fall and Scar Culture (more bands to be announced shortly). Tickets to the show will be available through Ticketmaster.

The concert will coincide with the release of the Tenth Anniversary Box Set Collection, a limited edition label retrospective set featuring two discs of released material (divided into Western Hemisphere and Eastern Hemisphere discs), a disc of rare and unreleased tracks and a full-color 90 page booklet containing essays, photos, interviews and a full label discography.

In 1991, Century Media Records opened an office in Los Angeles, California with the goal of becoming the largest independent metal label in the world. Over the past ten years, the label has enjoyed success in the numerous and perpetually evolving genres of extreme music - from black metal to power metal to death metal to hardcore - from the goth-metal of Moonspell, to the pioneering grooves of Stuck Mojo, to the straight-up, no-holds-barred metallic onslaught of Iced Earth and beyond.

It is this diversity in extremes that has distinguished the label since its creation, and drives it full-speed-ahead into the new millennium. Recently, Century Media opened an office in Sweden, bringing its worldwide total to nine offices (Germany, America, England, Italy, France, Australia, Brazil, Sweden, Holland).

We are giving away 3 pairs of tickets to the show. Winners will be selected at random. Please send your entries to mail@centurymedia.com and include your full name. One entry per person. Entries must be received by 9/17/01. Winners will announced on the website (www.centurymedia.com) on 9/21/01. Good luck!
