Spinefarm Records is a Finnish record label focusing mainly on heavy metal artists. In 1999, a sub-label titled Spikefarm Records was started by Sami Tenetz from Thy Serpent. Since 2002, Spinefarm has been part of Universal Music Group, but operates as an independent business unit.[1]

In Autumn 2007, Spinefarm launched in the UK, starting with re-issuing deluxe versions of the first 5 Nightwish albums, including the 'Over The Hills And Far Away' EP.


Spinefarm Records consists of five sub-labels, Spinefarm (mainstream metal, hard rock and progressive rock), Spikefarm (extreme metal, industrial metal and folk metal), Ranka (Finnish music), Ranch (rock) and Odor (pop and anything else that is not rock or metal).
