HistoryEdit

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.

On August 18, 2017, Spinefarm Records announced the global launch of sub-label Snakefarm Records[2]. Snakefarm has since signed Eric Church, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, and more.[3] The label's focus genres are roots rock, blues rock, and country.

Today, Spinefarm Records has offices in Helsinki, Finland; London, England, United Kingdom; and New York, New York, United States.

BandsEdit

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).
