DRP RECORDS: 2010 was the busiest year in the 10 year history of our label. We released 12 different titles of awesome music for everyone to love. If you supported any of our artists this year we just wanted to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH ! We’d also like to say 2010 was our biggest success ever at Loud Rock Radio, with Gloominous Doom, The Workhorse lll and Viking Skull hitting the radio waves hard and charting very well. The releases were met with very positive reviews in the press and our bands are hitting the road now more than ever, bringing the rock to your face in your town. We look forward to bringing you NEW music and some re-issued faves in 2011 from a bunch of exciting, talented, kick ass artists from all over the planet. BIG HUGE THANKS to Heavy Hitter Radio Promotions, Jose + Troy @ Sirius, Gordon Conrad @ Relapse, Greg Bowman at Level Nine, Dave Causa for the continued video support, and everyone at MVD.
