Peaceville Records is a British independent metal-oriented record label. The label was founded by Paul "Hammy" Halmshaw (of the bands Instigators and Civilised Society?, who was also one-time drummer of Sore Throat) in 1987, in Dewsbury, England. Originally a tape label releasing anarcho punk, the releases moved towards metal through crust and similar forms of metal influenced English hardcore punk. Halmshaw started running the label full time in 1988, although the original tape label incarnation was founded in 1981 as a vehicle for releasing Instigators demo cassettes.
