Published Sep 02, 2011Continuing its quest to smash to prove there's more to East Coast music than Celtic and indie rock, Diminished Fifth Records is celebrating its fifth anniversary with a sonically destructive birthday gig featuring a host of Maritime metal acts.
The Dartmouth, NS-based label will host the bash on September 24 at Gus Pub in Halifax and will feature five of the most brutal acts the East Coast imprint has to offer: Black Moor, Death Valley Driver, Dischord, Last Call Chernobyl and Orchid's Curse.
"Its certainly a proud parent moment to see your baby turn five," label owner Josh Hogan said in a statement. "It's hard to believe that we have released 17 albums since the label's inception, and we look forward to continuing to pave the way for East Coast metal and more in the coming years."
Further celebrating the occasion, D5R will be selling their entire catalogue for $5 throughout the month of September. You can check out the goods here.
Since its inception, Diminished Fifth Records has been blowing up the spot for East Coast metalheads. They pushed for the East Coast Music Association to create a "Loud Recording of the Year" category for the annual awards ceremonies, which was added to the proceedings in 2010, the same year the imprint won "Best Record Label."
