Meta4

Profile:
Label Code: LC 12964

Meta4 was started as a collaboration between Ophidian & DJ Ruffneck designed to give new talents and established artists with a different view on today's music a chance to fullfil their desire of releasing their music on an open-minded platform.

The first eight releases included a note on the back of each cover:

"All sounds extracted, vinyls pressed and rights owned by the members of Meta4.
Available for illegal download everywhere, so what you waiting for?
Listen to this record, run home and leach the shit like the cheap-ass mofo you really are!*

* Message not intended for those properly supporting underground music"

In 2007 parent company Cardiac Music B.V. decided to no longer support the label. After a year of absence Ophidian restarted the label independently.

Releasing vinyl resumed in 2009, and a digital shop was opened in 2011.

With quality this good, I don't mind the sparse release schedule.There are other labels to follow which put out albums on a regular basis, and then Meta4 comes out of left field with a new release and rips my face off. They've been killing it with the seven releases they've done over the last four years. KILLING IT.

Ah this label what to say. . . tonnes

a one stop shop for anything experimental Industrial sounds mixed with anything from almost drone / mainstream / crossbreed / breakcore and IDM stylings and even near pure noise.

Pretty much every release has a notable track or track(s), some release eek of Conrads styling and others just a more industrial feel of the original artist and all fit the lables experimental style perfectly.

notable tracks include - Tapage & Meander Chestnut Theory: Ice Cavern (Death) as near IDM stylings, the pure noise driven releases of Sacerdos Vigilia - Kavorka (The Lure Of The Animal) and Moleculez - Probotector and at the other end of the spectrum you have near mainstream industrial stylings of Mortifer - Degenerate Era and any selection of forsaken is dead's releases.

Dare to go further into the mix you can venture into the Ophidian as Raziel alias and meet pure industrial patterns, however if you where to pick one track to sum up the label as awhole you'd look no further than SPL & Ophidians - Subconscious possibly the greatest mix of them all.
