Neurotic Records is an independent extreme metal record label specialising predominantly in death metal, operating out of Tilburg in the Netherlands. Founded in late 2003 by Ruud Lemmen, who was initially responsible for European distribution for the American label Unique Leader before deciding to set up his own label.
In recent years, the label has been seen as an up-and-coming label after a number of relatively high-profile signings of certain bands, especially those signed from the well-respected Unique Leader label.
Neurotic Records is also directly involved in and responsible for the annual death metal festival Neurotic Deathfest, a growing music festival formerly known as the Rotterdam Deathfest - the name being changed to reflect the team behind the organisation of the festival as well as freeing the event up from being tied down to one specific city location.
In mid-2007, the label signed a licensing deal with American label Willowtip to distribute previously unavailable Neurotic Records releases and merchandise for sale in North America, Canada and Mexico. With that the Neurotic Records catalogue is available widely in all of Europe, Australia, New Zealand, the aforementioned countries and more.

Famous quotes containing the words neurotic and/or records:
“Todays pressures on middle-class children to grow up fast begin in early childhood. Chief among them is the pressure for early intellectual attainment, deriving from a changed perception of precocity. Several decades ago precocity was looked upon with great suspicion. The child prodigy, it was thought, turned out to be a neurotic adult; thus the phrase early ripe, early rot!”
—David Elkind (20th century)
“Its always the generals with the bloodiest records who are the first to shout what a hell it is. And its always the war widows who lead the Memorial Day parades.”
—Paddy Chayefsky (19231981)
