Black Mark Productions

Black Mark Productions

Black Mark Productions (founded 1991) is an independent record label based in Sweden that specializes in extreme metal releases, perhaps best known for its close connection to Quorthon, leader of the defining black metal band Bathory until his death in 2004. As Quorthon himself has stated several times, it was often wrongfully speculated that he had anything to do with the business and operation of Black Mark Productions, except for the concept and name of the label, which would be referenced in the title of the 1987 release "Under the Sign of the Black Mark". [ [ Official Bathory Website: The History Archive - Recording the Debut Album - By Quorthon] ] Quorthon received permission from the Tyfon Grammofon label to use his own proxy-label on all Bathory albums, along with a unique 666-X serial number, starting with the self-titled debut album from 1984, but the label wasn't founded as a separate entity before 1991. [ [ Official Bathory Website: The History Archive - Recording the Debut Album - By Quorthon] ] Who did found it remains disputed, but many point to Börje "Boss" Forsberg, who is also named in many of the classical conspiracy theories as Quorthon's father, though this is also heavily disputed. [ [ Tartarean Desire: Quorthon R.I.P. - By Fjordi] ] Among the label's other notable signings are Morgana Lefay, Edge of Sanity, Invocator, Cemetary, Memento Mori and Nightingale.

The label is currently owned by Börje "Boss" Forsberg, who has also received numerous production credits from bands on the label.
