Sound Pollution is one of the biggest and most successful alternative music companies in Scandinavia with a history of more than 25 years in the business, with a vast experience in a wide range of areas. Under the umbrella that is Sound Pollution you’ll find Scandinavia’s biggest independent music distributor with in-house record labels, promotion department, record store, mailorder service and our own publishing company Sound Pollution Songs AB.
On the music distribution side we represent both Swedish and international record labels in the Scandinavian territories. We often work with record labels that have a strong identity and crave an open minded understanding for the ways they have chosen to profile their label. With an extraordinarily competent staff we are able to squeeze the most out of the products we market. Among the record labels we represent in the Scandinavian territory you will find AFM Records, AOR Heaven, Black Mark, Candlelight, Earache, Gan-Shin, Hopeless Records, Massacre, Out Of Line, Rise Above, Season Of Mist, Southern Lord and Hassle Records to name a few.
We have a unique set-up offering a full worldwide distribution set up both physically and digitally.
With our in-house promotion department we offer several different promotional packages. Apart from full label promotion we also offer promotion for selected products. On the digital market we have the best imaginable knowledge and are fully aware of how important this part of the industry has become. We are always searching for new markets and our constantly up-to-date digital department is always interested in new, creative solutions to make the products we sell visible. Sound Pollution also has two in-house labels; Black Lodge and Wild Kingdom. Within their rosters you’ll find successful artists such as Bullet, The Hellacopters and Sabaton. The Sound Pollution record store has since the beginning been one of the key stores in Sweden for its wide range of alternative music. Along with the mail-order service we reach customers all over the world. The publishing company is currently one of the fastest growing parts of the company and through our co-operation with Sony/ATV Music Publishing we have the experience and the knowledge it takes to make partners fully aware of our catalogue.
