EBONY
RECORDS

Independent label: Formed By Daryl Johnston In 1982 Kingston Upon Hull, East Riding Of Yorkshire, United Kingdom Closed: 1987 Former Address Hemingbrough, North Yorkshire, United Kingdom. Sub-Label: Criminal Response Records Ebony Became Reaction Records In 1987.Ebony Records was a hard rock / heavy metal label that released many of the smaller, less well-known acts of the mid 80s UK HM scene. It was a budget label, recording quality was defiantly lo-fi, and there was certainly some amateurish music released on its many compilation albums. However there are several gems to be found including classics by great, half-forgotten bands like Chateaux, Savage, Blade Runner, Samurai and Blood Money. The label is probably most well known for the two albums by Grim Reaper, and also for the first ever vinyl release by Mercyful Fate, on the Metallic Storm compilation.
