Extensive Definition

Regain Records is a Swedish based record label. The label predominantly releases death metal and black metal albums.
Regain Records was founded from what remained of former label, Wrong Again Records by Per Gyllenbäck in 1997. Wrong Again Records had such bands as In Flames, Arch Enemy, and Naglfar among its ranks.
Regain Records' first two releases were Deranged's High on Blood and Embraced's Amorous Anathema, in late 1997. In the first two years of operation, business for the label was slow, due to lack of proper distribution. It wasn't until Regain Records re-released the first two In Flames albums, Lunar Strain and Subterranean, which were previously released under the name Wrong Again Records, that the label began to prosper.
Regain Records has become a comprehensive label in Europe, with bands like Dark Funeral, Danzig, Marduk, Behemoth, Dismember, Gorgoroth, Enthroned and Overkill.
