Solid State Records is a Christian record label, an imprint of Tooth & Nail Records. Unlike Tooth & Nail, Solid State signs hardcore punk and heavy metal bands.[1] Like Tooth & Nail, Solid State is primarily a Christian label. However, they have signed several bands with Christian members that don't label themselves as Christian bands, including Stretch Arm Strong,[2] Gwen Stacy,[3] He Is Legend,[4] the Famine,[5] Training for Utopia,[6] and the Agony Scene.[7] The label is best known for Norma Jean, Beloved, Zao and Stretch Arm Strong.[8]
