Long-running U.K. record label Elitist Records has officially closed its doors. "Many thanks to all who supported the releases and appreciated the ethic behind the label," said label founder Lee Barrett in a statement. "I’ll now be A&Ring for another label. More news when it's available."

Elitist was founded in 2002 as an imprint division of the legendary Earache Records. It was solely A&R'ed by Barrett, the ex-owner of Candlelight Records and the person reportedly responsible for discovering such acts as EMPEROR, OPETH, ENSLAVED and many other.

Meh, I sorta dislike elitists anyhow... always b****ing about how everything has to be underground, and if it's not then piss on it... blah, blah, blah.

Hahaha. Dabble, experiment. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger (and more p***ed off / more determined).
