Excellent, man! Thanks for asking. We're kind of going through a "rebirth" period with it right now so it's a very cool and exciting time. We feel even better now with it than when it first began. It's been a lot of work finding cool new people to work with but totally worth the effort. We've always had a simple "rule" which was to always avoid working with rockstar-minded people and to keep things down to earth and FUN. Yes....FUN! I know there isn't supposed to be "fun" in metal, but that is basically a crock of shit if you ask me! haha
DC: Let's start from the beginning. When did you form Razorback Records and more importantly, what made you want to start a record label of your own? Which was the first Razorback release that you put out? I believe you were involved in a few metal-related activities before that - could you tell us about them?
Billy: My partner Jill was running a death metal label called Mortal Coil Records at the time, and I was doing a total noise label called Be A Freak Records. Before that I was involved in some noise/grind band/projects and fanzines. I did my first death metal fanzine in 1990 called The Coven zine that lasted til 1992 and did 3 issues with it. I've just always been around in the underground doing SOMETHING I guess. Things didn't start to get "serious" though until 1998 when I met Jill. We wanted to start a more focused record label putting out horror influenced death/grind stuff, sort of like the "IMPETIGO of record labels" since IMPETIGO was (and still is) my all-time favorite underground band ever! The first full length release we put out was the ENGORGED "Death Metal Attack 2" CD that came out in 1999, but actually our first release was a compilation CD called "Gore Is Your Master" that came out a few months before that.
