2010-10-02 - Statement regarding new prices
In the times where even d.i.y. labels seems to become capitalistic, i.e. raising prices in order to gain more profit, we have decided to do the exact opposit. Yes, this is todays truth: the capitalistic system is gaining itâs followers, even in the d.i.y. scene. A shame indeed, but not very hard to imagine. We do live in a world of capitalism and money and gaining it is a big thing for us humans.
That aside, we mainly do this for two reasons:
1. We need punkrock more than ever. The Swedish election, Iâll let it talk for itselfâ¦
2. We do not really make records to make profit, but the spread revolutionary ideas. More info on this can be found at the About us section
We have decided to lower the prices so much we dare to say we are the cheapest mailorder/distro in europe right now, maybe even the world. We are currently working on solutions to lower the shippingcosts as well, due to the fact that the shipment is a substantially cost of the total order value.
The prices are adjusted so that no product cost more than an equal product. Price examples as stated;
- 12â LP, new price: 80 SEK, old price 90 SEK.
- MCD, new price: 35 SEK, old price 60 SEK.
- Tape, new price: 15 SEK, old price 40 SEK.
- Shirts, new price: 75 SEK, old price 100 SEK.
- Patches, new price: 10 SEK, old price 20 SEK.
- Badges, new price: 5 SEK, old price 10 SEK.
[All sections are subject of change, some sections have been or will be cut in prices by up to 50%.]
There are some sections that are being updated still, please give us this weekend to complete the work of adjusting the prices. But still, have a go and browse the online store as almost everything is done!

2010-08-01 - On vacation
Later today I am gone on a little vacation. No mails will be answered and no orders will be taken care of til I get back. When I do, all things will be taken care of in the order which they have arrived. If you place an order, please list some alternatives in the field for Notes.
Yes, our releases has started to appear on Spotify. Amongst others you are now able to find M:40, Protestera and Aktiv dÃ¶dshjÃ¤lp there. Unfortunatly, you cannot search Halvfabrikat as a label. If you do you will find another artist who has nothing to do with us. If you like what you hear, buy the actual release from us!
2010-07-26 - At the office again
I am officially at the office again from the Protestera tour. All orders will be packed and posted during this week. This means all orders will be taken care of until the end of July. A confirmation will be sent when your parcel has been sent.
Also the Aktiv dÃ¶dshjÃ¤lp CD has arrived as well, for those who wonder about this one. All orders of this will also be taken care of this week.
I like to take the opportunity of thanking all involved in the Protestera tour; organisers as well as audience. 16 gigs in 17 days are massive! We had a great time in europe on the European Streaking Tour 2010. On a personal note I want to thank Protestera for having me onboard a second time. You guys are amazing ["9,5 HFR loggor!"].
2010-07-07 - Off on tour
So now I am off on the Protestera european tour. All orders that will be in during this period (from now until the 25th), will be sent out at the end of July.
2010-07-01 - HALVCD032+HALVCD043+HALVEP045 out now
So, July 1 and we put out 3 new raw releases out there.
Today we do release the long awaited PROTESTERA follow up to the 2005 release Rock n riot (HALVCD018). Expect 11 songs for your everyday civil insubordination needs. The booklet is massive; 44 pages in length forcing us to do this as a digipack. Killer!
The Aktiv dÃ¶dshjÃ¤lp CD are also long waited to say the least. The 4:48 album (HALVCD027) delt with issues regarding suicide but this deal with the issues in life, or rather the issues in the non-existant life. The album is very diverse as three of the eleven songs are monologes rather that songs. This keeps the album intresting at all times.
Many bumps later this CD is now out. We still have some problems with the shipment of the actual records though, but still we do this release today. Orders of this will be shipped ASAP when they do get here. We expect this release to go fast!
Also, we do release the Eskatologia/Distress - Split 10" EP today. The songs are all killers - expect no fillers on this. Raw as hell. We are really proud of doing this release!

2010-05-23 - HALVCD047
Have Halvfabrikat gone metal? Yes, some of you might think we have. We are proud to announce we will do the UmeÃ¥ based MisantropicÂ´s fullength debut. This will be called "Insomnia", and will be released on June 11. Be sure to catch Misantropic in Sthlm 10/6 or Munkedal 11/6.
Also up for June 11 are Personkrets 3:1 - Blodigt krig 2003-2007, discography CD as well as Aktiv dÃ¶dshjÃ¤lp - Men allting har ett slut CD. We also do have high hopes for the Human error/Livstid - Split 7" to reach us soon; if so, this will also be out on this very date.
If all goes well we will also have the Protestera - 01.05.1886 CD out by then... This will be done as a special digipack to fit the booklet; which are of 44 pages length.
2010-05-10 - Repress of HALVCD026
The Eskatologia/Distress - Split 10" EP (HALVEP045) has finally been sent off to the pressingplant. Expect this to arrive and be released in June.
We have decided on repressing the sold out M:40 - Historiens svarta vingslag CD. Today we got it delivered to the office. So, everyone who has been begging us to get in back in stock - now its time to claim it. We expect this to go really fast!
2010-05-01 - HALVLP039 out now
Yes, the Passiv dÃ¶dshjÃ¤lp - HÃ¤ng dom LP are out now. Get it while you can! A CD version will be available later.
2010-04-27 - HALVLP039
The Passiv dÃ¶dshjÃ¤lp - HÃ¤ng dom LP will be out during 01.05.2010 as stated earlier. Also, yesterday I ordered yet another repress of the M:40 - Historiens svarta vingslag on CD, so that will follow some days after.
And yes, we have finally started working on the Personkrets 3:1 discography, which will be titled "Blodigt krig 2003-2007". Also, the new Aktiv dÃ¶dshjÃ¤lp CD are almost completely done and if you ask me, it sounds sick. So if you are into metalcrust, this is most likely to be the top album of 2010 (it is really that good).
The Human error/Livstid - Split 7" EP are rumoured to have been printed, but in a smaller quantity than we have intended, which is a shame - to say the least.
On the negative side we have the Protestera CD, which will be delayed a month or so.
2010-04-01 - Aktiv/Passiv dÃ¶dshjÃ¤lp
Yes, the discussion has been around for ages, but is it true or is this a april fools joke? Will Aktiv dÃ¶dshjÃ¤lp team up with Passiv dÃ¶dshjÃ¤lp to do a split of some kind?!
It is in fact, not a joke. We hereby anounce that we will do a split between the two. Currently PD has recorded their songs and AD will do this as soon as they are done with the recording of their new fullenght (HALVCD043). Even the first draft of the artwork are completed as we speak! The Aktiv dÃ¶dshjÃ¤lp/Passiv dÃ¶dshjÃ¤lp split will be a seven inch and released as HALVEP049.
2010-03-20 - Up for sale: everything that we know
One thing I realized when we moved the HQ the last time was the following: I have a too large personal records colection. Now I have to do something about it. During today I will put some of it out here on sale. This will mean some restocks, but also there willl be some completely new shit up.
I have also found some items that have been out of stock for quite some time...
2010-02-28 - Halvfabrikat on the move
Tomorrow, Halvfabrikat Records will move again. New address from 01/03/2010 will be;
RingvÃ¤gen 18 B
S-532 72 Axvall

2010-02-26 - HALVLP041 out now
As you probably know already, the Years of decay/Sand creek massacre - Split LP are out today. Place your order now!
2010-02-19 - HALVLP041
The Passiv dÃ¶dshjÃ¤lp - HÃ¤ng dom LP and Eskatologia - Split 10" EP has been postponed til April 1. However, the Years of deacay/Sand creek massacre - Split LP will be released on Febuary 26. Finally this long awaited LP will be out to the public. As this is a labelsplit, we have gotten a very limited copies.
After those releases we are aiming on doing some CDs... The long awaited Protestera 01.05.1886 are going to be completed. This will be a very special release so we are actually thrilled about it! We also have to complete the Personkrets 3:1 discography, which, I suppose, will look quite like the Operation discography.
And also, Aktiv dÃ¶dshjÃ¤lp are in the process of recording songs for the follow-up to 4:48, which will deal with issues in life rather than death itself. The songs so far sounds great. This will be a very diverse album indeed!
