Our story

The idea for “coronnation” came about – as the name suggests – under the influence of the global pandemic. The virus has particularly hit semi-professional bands from the metal sector:

  • Tours have been canceled
  • Releases had to be postponed
  • almost all income opportunities have disappeared

The initial plan was to found a non-profit organization that would help up-and-coming bands find their way in the jungle of the music business and provide them with professional advice while also producing selected bands directly. Ultimately, however, it turned out that it was necessary to found our own record label, which is also commercially active, but works with the artists on an equal footing and helps them to avoid the numerous dangers that the music business brings with it. This is how “coronnation’s FAIR TRADE MUSIC” was born.
