Under One Flag was een Brits platenlabel uit Londen, dat zich richtte op een heavymetalpubliek, in het bijzonder op thrash metal. Ze zijn vooral bekend om de heruitgaven van klassieke heavymetalalbums, als die van Venom en Dark Angel, alsmede van originele uitgaven van diezelfde en een aantal andere heavymetalbands. Sommige albums die van Under One Flag vinyl zijn uitgegeven zijn nu verzamelaarsobjecten.

Geschiedenis[bewerken]

Under One Flag opereerde als een dochteronderneming van Music For Nations, dat in een later stadium ook alle rechten van uitgaven en een deel van de getekende bands van ze over nam. Music For Nations was op haar beurt een dochteronderneming van Zomba Music Group. De eerste officiële uitgave van Under One Flag was “The Force” (1986), van de Engelse band Onslaught. In deze periode was de cd met een opmars bezig in de muziekwereld. Desondanks bleef Under One Flag heavymetalalbums naast op cd ook uitgeven op vinyl en zelfs op cassette, waarmee ze zich onderscheidden van labels die zich volledig op de cd-markt richtten. Ook gaven ze een aantal compilatie-albums uit onder de naam “Speed Kills…”, gevolgd door een term die refereerde naar een op dat moment populair metalnummer.

Het label bracht intussen ook het derde en vierde studioalbum van de Zweese blackmetalband Bathory uit, waardoor hun status verder verstevigd werd. Hierdoor werd Under One Flag ook in staat gesteld bands van het kaliber Nuclear Assault en Forbidden te tekenen. Onder de rechten van eerder uitgebrachte thrashmetalalbums die Under One Flag verwierf bevond zich een belangrijk deel van de catalogus van Combat Records. Daardoor konden ze ook de compilatie van Death’s Fate: The Best of Death opnieuw uitbrengen.

In het begin van de jaren negentig steeg de populariteit van heavy metal tot dan ongekende hoogte. Bands die tot dan toe alleen succes in het underground circuit hadden beleefd, bereikten successen in de mainstream, waardoor moederbedrijf Music For Nations alle activiteiten van Under One Flag overnam en de stekker uit het label trok. Het laatste album dat Under One Flag heeft uitgegeven was Progress Of Decadence van Overdose, in 1994.[1] In totaal zijn er 232 uitgaven gepubliceerd door Under One Flag[2] verspreid over eenendertig titels.
