‘The History Of Roadrunner Records’ Documentary In The Works


A new documentary on the history of pioneering metal label Roadrunner Records is currently in production. Dubbed ‘The History Of Roadrunner Records‘, the series will be directed by Jim Saxton of the ‘Temple Of Bleh‘ podcast. Saxton intends to conduct new interviews with both artists and staff from the label, telling their ascent through them alongside archival footage and more.

Former Roadrunner Records SVP of A&R Monte Conner commented of the upcoming doc:

“I’m a huge fan of Jim Saxton‘s ‘Temple Of Bleh‘ podcast. Even as someone who lived through all the history he digs up with each episode, I remember things I had long forgotten and gain new insight into Roadrunner‘s history via Jim‘s fresh perspective, sharp insight, and his uncanny ability to place the label’s achievements into a historic framework from both an artist and business perspective.

Roadrunner is a label success story like no other in the heavy metal world… and beyond, and it’s about time its story is told in a manner that truly does it justice.”

Roadrunner Records has been a label home to the likes of Nickelback, Slipknot, Sepultura and many more over the years.

The documentary is tentatively planned to be released in March of 2023.
