Roadrunner’s 25 years of existence coincided with the birth of Heavy Music as we know it today. In the label’s earliest days, Roadrunner began licensing now-classic U.S. releases for distribution to rabid fans overseas, truly growing American Metal on a worldwide scale. By the late eighties, Roadrunner was signing its own talent í¢ä‰åäóì bands from around the World that would quickly become titans in their own right. In 2005, to commemorate 25 years of genre-defining music, Roadrunner will re-release those albums that are truly Metal classics, each with bonus content relevant to the era in which it was put to tape plus extensive liner notes and expanded artwork. These are the ultimate editions of must-have albums.
