A German record label credited with discovering Bullet For My Valentine and HIM has closed.
Great Unlimited Noises - also known as GUN - was launched in 1992 as a joint venture between music giant BMG and
former label president Wolfgang Funk.
The label continued business after its parent company merged with Sony records in 2005 but shut down this week (beg09Feb09).
Artists currently on the label's roster, including Bullet For My Valentine and Lordi, will now be passed on to Sony's German subsidiaries.
No reason was given for the closure as WENN went to press. .
