Reservoir Media has acquired the publishing catalog of heavy metal label Century Media, giving it the rights to 9,000 songs and the contracts of more than 350 songwriters, the company has announced.
This deal, the terms of which were undisclosed, grows Reservoir's catalog to over 100,000 songs, while its roster now includes representation for over 1,000 songwriters. Sony Music Entertainment acquired the label and its recorded masters in 2015.
"This acquisition of Century Media's publishing arms reaffirms our commitment to diversifying our music catalog and expanding Reservoir's international offerings," Reservoir COO Rell Lafargue said in a statement. "We look forward to welcoming Century Media's songwriters into the Reservoir family."
