About Blacklight records

Blacklight Records was founded in the spring of 2011, with the mission of producing the highest quality vinyl records. We focus on producing limited edition releases on vinyl of legendary albums that never were heard in this way before. Although most people thought that vinyl records would never make a comeback, it is a fact that the real and diehard music lovers still prefer real and true products. Therefore, vinyl records still dominate the collections of many music fans all over the world. And even the younger generation of music lovers that has grown up with bits and bytes, discovered more and more the beauty of vinyl and the feeling it gives when the needle hits the record for the first time.

Listening to music is more than having a sound in the background. Not like the music you hear in big supermarkets and shopping malls. Real music is emotion, it’s happiness, it’s anger, and it reaches into your heart never to come out again. It is a way of life.

With this definition of music in mind, we started Blacklight Records. A back to the roots experience because we focus on music we really love. We don’t only concentrate on one specific style of music, but enjoy the whole spectrum of music and let this guide our choices in what we produce or not.

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
