Denmark’s biggest metal label, Mighty Music, has resurfaced. Founding members Bjarke Ahlstrand and Michael H. Andersen comment: ”We have spend the last couple of years building up Target Distribution, which today is Denmark’s leading music distribution company within alternative music. Having now established Target, we felt it was time to breathe some fresh life (death, actually) into our precious "child", Mighty Music. 1997 was the year we started up, and 2007 will be the year the empire strikes back! This time around we're ready with much bigger facilities and man power, namely that of Target, and we have no doubt Mighty Music will a serious player in the future metal world”
