Trades are welcome, of course… as you know, trades are the engine of underground metal movement.
You have just to keep in mind that we accept cd trades ONLY with the following genres: Thrash, Heavy, Doom and some Death Metal (not too extreme, but you can always try to ask if we’re interested).
So, if your productions are in line with our target, write us your proposal without any problem!
We’re not interested in Black Metal, Melodic Death Metal, Avantgarde, Nu Metal, Emo, Metalcore, Deathcore, Grindcore (as you can comprehend, we don’t like any “core”, except for old style Hardcore), Gothic, Alternative, Industrial, etc. If you can see some titles of these genres in our trade list, it’s because we found them in distro we previously bought in their entirety, or because we explicitly asked to trade them.

*Anatoly is a really kind and available guy (you can absolutely trust him), but he has some problems with English language. Repeat him more than once what he must send you.
Be careful with:
MIKHAIL DIAKOV (Russia)
Ask him to divide booklets from inlays and to protect them with thick paper sheets.
It would be better to ask him to send stuff with jewel cases.
They ask for a trade and then… they disappear!
Why adding this subsection? Because it’s annoying when another label asks for a trade and then, probably not satisfied of DeathStorm offer, doesn’t reply, also when solicited with reminders. This is nothing but a declaration of non seriousness.
“I’m not interested anymore, thanks”… is it so difficult to conceive an answer like this?
