Hi everyone,

We can often hear (or at least me ) people saying label kills band, kills creativity and shit.
Could you think of counter-examples of bands that have been saved by labels ?
Most bands would have horse shit production if not for labels

Like melodic, black, death, symphonic, and/or avant-garde metal? Want to collaborate? Message me!
Well big labels that are money vampires do tend to be crap companions for artistic creation. But there's tons of cool, small labels that deliberately pick out left-field type musicians and stuff anyway (like sub pop). Plus, there's a big market for pitchfork hipsters now isn't there.

Did you hear about the cockney Godfather?

He made them an offer they couldn't understand.
An advantage of labels is that they offer some perks like a recording and touring budget.

I'm not sure of any bands that have been saved by going onto a major label, but there have been plenty that thrived. Lamb of God has probably been better off because they went to a major label

If sumeriancore bands were independent they would sound just as shitty, but they would not have money or expensive tourbuses.
