Metal Assault Launches Record Label
If you live in Los Angeles and are an extreme music fan you know doubt are familiar with Andrew Bansal and Metal Assault. Making the jump in 2010 from die-hard fan to delivering concert reviews, photos and interviews with Metal Assault, to touring with bands throughout North America and most recently promoting underground music throughout Southern California, Bansal has made quite a name for himself in the name of Heavy Metal music.
As a result of the above relentless hard work, Metal Assault has now launched its own record label – Metal Assault Records.
Having developed a well-earned reputation as curators of heavy music with special focus on unearthing the underground, it was only a matter of time before Metal Assault became a record label, and the day has finally arrived. Metal Assault Records is here to completely change the band-versus-label dynamic and present an artist-friendly approach like no other. At the heart of it all, the label’s ethos is based on doing it for the right reasons, for the love of the music, as fans more than anything else.
Metal Assault Records vows to follow the same principles upon which the blog and the event promotion has been revolving around since day one, i.e. presenting an open-mindedly broad range of heavy music, not narrowed upon any single sub-style or sub-genre, but covering the entire gamut of all things the label deems fit to classify as hard rock or heavy metal. The label’s roster will always reflect this trait, as the first few signings will indicate in the next few months. Get ready for a long line of fantastic bands to take you by storm!
To coincide with its launch, Metal Assault Records is extremely proud to announce its very first signing! Los Angeles based instrumental doom quartet Goliathan is a band Metal Assault has worked with frequently for its events over the past 12 months. Our first impression of the band was a long-lasting one, and even for us, having seen and listened to thousands of bands over the years, it is safe to say that there isn’t a band as powerful, bestial, stunning, spellbinding and mind-bending as Goliathan. When the band approached us with the possibility of signing with our label, it was a no-brainer and the most instant “Yes” decision from us. Metal Assault is thrilled to put out Goliathan’s second album Albion, set for release on November 16 2018.

Metal Assault proudly presents the album release show for the first signing on our own label! LA instrumental doom metal / post-rock band Goliathan will be releasing their sophomore album ‘Albion’ via Metal Assault Records on November 16 2018, and we’re throwing a big release party on the same date, where the band will perform the entire album and more!
