Test Your Metal Records was founded in April 2015, by Grant Truesdell – a fellow musician and heavy metal advocate – out of the frustrations of seeing all of the underpaid and unsigned talent from all over the world not getting the recognition or help that they deserve. Realizing that there has to be a better way to help bands not just make a living, but to help them define a career for themselves.
