In 1999, a sub-label titled Spikefarm Records was started by Sami Tenetz from Thy Serpent. Since 2002, Spinefarm has been part of Universal Music Group, but operates as an independent business unit.[1]

In Autumn 2007, Spinefarm launched in the UK, starting with re-issuing deluxe versions of the first five Nightwish albums, including the Over The Hills And Far Away EP.


Spinefarm Records consists of five sub-labels: Spinefarm (mainstream heavy metal and hard rock), Spikefarm (extreme metal, industrial metal and folk metal), Ranka (Finnish music), Ranch (rock) and Odor (anything aside from rock and metal).
