The company started as a small mailorder service for demo-tapes and 7" EPs. In the same year, the CD distribution started and Sound Riot Records became the official distributor for European record labels such as Displeased, Misanthropy, Holy, No Fashion and Avantgarde Music, among others. The idea to run an own record label came during 1995 and the debut release came out in March 1996.
