30 Years of Roadrunner

    30 Years of Roadrunner

    2010 marks the 30th anniversary of Roadrunner Records, and as we close out the year in celebration, we're looking back on the last three decades with a little help from our friends.

    Founded in 1980 in Holland to export albums from the US to Europe, it wasn't until 1986 that Roadrunner opened a New York office and began to release burgeoning bands stateside (see: King Diamond, Carnivore and Whiplash as some of the first signings). Following on from Soulfly/Cavalera Conspiracy's Max Cavalera, Machine Head's Phil Demmel, Slipknot/ Murderdolls' Joey Jordison, Killswitch Engage's Mike D'Antonio, Opeth's Mikael Akerfeldt, and former Coal Chamber/ current DevilDriver frontman Dez Fafara, we're now turning it over to Trivium frontman Matt Heafy to help us recount the past by answering some quick questions survey-style.
