AOR / METAL HEAVEN - introducing a label!

This story really isn't new - a maniac on music founds a CD mailorder, the business booms and what originally has started as one-man business grows all though the years up to a five-men team.

This is the story of AOR Heaven mailorder which was established in 1994 and in the meantime became the market leader in Europe regarding Melodic and Hard Rock.

Thanks to the good contacts to a couple of business insiders, the label of the same name was founded in 1997 in collaboration with the company Point Music which is responsible for releases such as BALANCE OF POWER, NETWORK, BOBBY KIMBALL, T'BELL, STREET TALK, TALK OF THE TOWN, FRONTLINE, ALYSON AVENUE or VITAL SIGNS - just to mention a few.

Since January 2004, AOR Heaven has been working as autonomous label and with Soulfood found a capable distributor for Germany and Austria. Analog to this, foreign distribution matters have also been forced and resulted in the collaboration with the following partners as part of a newly established European distribution network:

 

 

 

Austria:

 

Soulfood

BeNeLux:

 

Rough Trade

Bulgaria

 

Wizard LTD

Finland:

 

Supersounds

France:

 

Underclass

Germany:

 

Soulfood

Hungary:

 

Hammer Music

UK:

 

Cargo Records

Italy:

 

Frontiers

Sweden:

 

Sound Pollution

Switzerland:

 

Nonstop Music

Spain:

 

Goi Music

With a focus on a permanently changing market, the sublabel METAL HEAVEN was founded in 2004 which in the meantime has become the solid foundation of the company AOR Heaven. Since the sales, especially in the AOR genre, most recently rapdily went down, the focus of our label in the future will lie on Melodic Metal/ Hard Rock. Certainly, we still also will be active with the AOR Heaven label (focusing on coming releases such as Legs Diamond, Frontline and Pump).

Keep on rocking
