The Other Records is an underground label / distro based in Helsinki, Finland focusing on the obscure, the ugly and the transgressive.
While we do not limit our stock to one genre, we do tend to favor the variants of death, doom and (some) black metal, along with a healthy dose of grind and hardcore punk.
We aim to carefully curate our selection based on our own personal tastes which in many cases means that we will scour the margins and fringes of the underground in order to find music and artifacts that give off that special ‘stink’ (much like a corpse… or vintage cheese, which ever floats your boat).
Our goods come in the form of fanzines, records, cassettes, compact discs, shirts, books and the like, as well as plenty of second-hand curiosities. In the spirit of Lovecraft’s eyes, we peer into the eternal night and celebrate the art of the unnamable in all its aural and material manifestations – Ia Ia, Cthulhu Fhtagn!
