I would like to mention that this label was not created on the idea of being "satanic" or being "anti-religious". I created this with the name of Shaytan being utilized to signify the entire East - primarily the Islamic regions which suppress this form of music (known otherwise as black metal).
The name Shaytan implies the devil, or evil. The word is commonly associated with fear.
Shaytan Productions has been in existence since October 2007. We are based out of Toronto Ontario Canada.
The label`s aim is to promote a new approach to black metal and other dark genres with the influence of the East within the music. Al-Namrood and Darkestrah exemplify the labels primary vision; however experimental approaches are highly intriguing like Equimanthorn, Kalki Avatara, Dhul-Qarnayn, and The Horn.
We are open for interviews, review requests, band proposals, trades, wholesale and the like, just send an email. Please bare in mind that we have limited copies for trade and promotional purposes due to them being released in small quantities.
As of 2014 the label aims shifted towards a more obvious artistic approach. As we explore the creative aspects of imagery, visuals, and music. We look forward to the new paths ahead. As of 2014, we have been featured in magazines, news articles, released multiple vinyls, and released two music videos for our bands.
We work closely with our bands to bring the best that we can offer on the label. Our current bands include Al-Namrood, Darkestrah, and Equimanthorn.
Thank you for your support over the years. Its been 8 years that went by quickly. 2016 will see new releases and more artistic endeavours by Shaytan Productions.
