Bloody Fist Records was an independent record label based in Newcastle, Australia.

The label was involved in hardcore/gabber, industrial, breaks, noise, and related genres. Founded by Nasenbluten's Mark Newlands(formerly known as Stigs/TDU) the label initially began distributing cassettes and moved on to become a well-respected label in the hardcore techno scene. The licensing of some Nasenbluten material to Industrial Strength Records brought the label worldwide underground notoriety with Industrial Strength releasing a sampler of Bloody Fist Records artists.[1]

Artists[edit]

Bands and artists signed to Bloody Fist in its lifetime included Syndicate, Xylocaine, Memetic, Guyver, Nasenbluten and Newlands' own alias Overcast.

Demise[edit]

At 3p.m. AEST on 1 October 2004, the label shut its doors after ten years of releasing music in vinyl and cassette format.
