Frozen Veins Records

Frozen Veins Records (冷凍静脈記録 in Japanese) was a record label and distribution company based in Tokyo, Japan, founded by Yusuke Ooka (大岡 佑介 in Japanese) in the summer of 2008. The company specialized in dark ambient and black metal artists and its many nuances and sub-genres; atmospheric black metal, depressive black metal, doom metal, post-black metal, blackgaze, black ambient, drone, etc.

After distributing other record labels' releases for several months, Yusuke started releasing original material through Frozen Veins Records. He started contacting bands to work with in the late summer of 2008 but it took a few months before the first release came out in January of 2009. The company ceased its operations (quite suddenly and without explanation) in the early months of 2010 (February or March), after releasing 9 of the 13 announced releases. Yusuke Ooka has not been active in the music scene since.
