Anything in Boston, Massachusetts, worth checking out for CDs?
P.S. Found Armageddon store, In Your Ear and Cheapo records using Google Maps.
I guess at least the first one should be good.

Homers Music in Downtown Omaha has a very good and growing metal section. They recently have been ordering bandsfrom Unique Leader solots of good stuff.

Another update for Cleveland, Ohio

Black Market is moving to Lakewood - they re-open August 13th (2019). 11798 Detroit Ave. Lakewood. Hopefully, their selection will be larger than it was when they were in Gordon Square. I don't know their new hours yet.

This is a bit of a stretch, but Record Revolution on Coventry Rd. (Cleveland Hts) has some metal vinyl from time to time. If you don't live in the immediate area though, I wouldn't suggest bothering to make the trip since their selection of metal beyond the standards (Metallica, Iron Maiden, etc.) tends to come and go sparsely. Cool shop though. Great selection of classic rock and items for...'green activities'.

I find that your best bet in Cleveland is to wait for shows. What we lack in shops, we make up for plenty in venues and we get a very fortunate rate of fantastic tours coming through, so unless you're desperate to have something now, it's more than worth it to save your paychecks and wait until bands come around and hit up the merch tables.

Will be in Vienna and Budapest the first week of April. Any metal bars or activities I should know about? Only thing I can find is a Krisiun and I think Septic Flesh concert...not too big a fan of either band

Evergrey play budapest on the 11th, and Six Feet Under on the 15th, if your dates are a bit more flexible. plenty of local bands play everyday... you can use http://est.hu/zene/programajanlo/ to see all gigs up to a week ahead (thus, not yet for your dates)...

Liquid Rock is a standard rock/metal bar, pretty central, a bit overpriced by local standards, but should be okay for you.

also look up Durer Kert, Robot (Instant/Fogas), A38, paranoir.

as for record shops, there's too many. depends on whether you're after Pokolgep's debut on vinyl, the hungarian CD version of the last Metallica album, or anything in between :D

feel free to message me, if you want. calendar says I'll probably be in the uk at the time but you never know, or I can hook you up with nice people.

entirely irrelevent side note, take 5 mins to google local scams, they're too many unf :/

Thanks man. I know about Evergrey - I'm so pissed I'll miss it. I'll be leaving Vienna the 6th. Bummer!

I was recently in Reykjavik and found a few really good ones that, while not metal focused, had some good selections from local bands to Iceland.

Two of the shops I found were: Lucky Records and Smekkleysa Record Shop.

I live in Mito city Japan and used to live in Chengdu China(I’m pretty sure there wasn’t any metal shops there but there were jam rooms and bands to hang out with there so if anyone needs info on that I can help). But yeah I’d love to find out what metal shops are around Mito.

Zions Gate in Seattle was awesome. The selection was pretty damn big too.

I've never been to either but will say that the place for hard rock and metal records in Reykjavik is definitely Geisladiskabúð Valda, on Vitastígur (just around the corner from Laugavegur). Easy to miss because it's small but seriously worth a visit, in particular if you're interested in (obscure) local bands, demo releases and such. I hope it survives for a long time.

12 Tónar on Skólavörðustígur is a very pleasant shop to hang out at as well. I bought the Katla album there and my friend got into Steindór Anderson's rímur music there.

Google doesn't do the trick. Maybe people on here know any Metal themed shops in Colorado (Denver/Broomfield/Westminster areas ideally, but if not, then anywhere in Colorado really). Thanks in advance

sure-ich is not a metal city (anymore), but you can try:
- Zero Zero Rare Groove, Bäckerstrasse 54, 8004 Zürich
- Katalog Record Warehouse, Weinbergstrasse 31, 8006 Zürich
- Blutt Records, Limmatstrasse 125, 8005 Zürich

best of luck, find that CF bootleg! :D

Anybody know any in Christchurch NZ? I know of a few stores like JB Hifi, but they have a very....loose.....definition of metal, and you're hard pressed to find anything other than Death or Megadeth (but props for having them). We have Pennylane Records, but they mostly take second hand records and CDs and most of those are the shit bands and shit albums by better bands (if I see yet another copy of Reload and St Anger there I might explode) because nobody wants them.

A new shop called Ride On Super Sound opened in Christchurch in November. I haven't been there, but I see some good variety in their photos. It's in the same building as the Darkroom venue which I visited just over a decade ago so hopefully it stays around for a while. They also offer to order records in specially.

edit: Darkroom has only been going since 2011. I was thinking of a different venue with similar events.

Hi guys, I will be travelling to Dallas FW from New Zealand in July and was wondering if there is any stores that hold metal stuff.
I've found a bunch of stores online but they don't mention metal as such

I'll most likely be heading for a Morocco-tour some time in late August/September - it's not exactly your typical "metal" country, but perhaps somebody knows a few places worth visiting between Agadir and Marrakesh?

I visited a new record store dedicated to metal that has opened here in London in the past week. It's called Crypt Of The Wizard and is located in East London which has quite a few record stores already but this new one is the only one that stocks solely metal. They didn't have all that many records in stock (it's only a small space to be fair) but they had a good selection from across all sub-genres and most of the big names were represented by at least one of their albums as well as a healthy selection from underground artists. I picked up the 2010 re-issue of Sodom's Agent Orange which I've been trying to find for some time. They also stocked some cassette tapes, vinyl singles, patches, shirts and they even sell coffee! I'll be popping in again sometime soon to hopefully find some more great stuff. Definitely worth a visit if you happen to be in London and want to get some metal records.


I've heard about Crypt of the Wizard and also how small it is... I might give it a try, though it seems to be near Shoreditch, which is one of my most hated parts of London

Posting for posterity, even though nobody asked recently. I've spent time in Santa Cruz, California and I've gotten to know their record stores.

Streetlight Records: very big store in downtown that mostly focuses on the mainstream; however they stock some good metal. Metal selection caters more to vinyl, but there are some CDs. Also a good place for other genres (rock, pop, electronic, hip-hop and world) and DVDs.

Metavinyl: not far from Streetlight. Significantly smaller but great vinyl selection. If you want to find something good, you have to do some digging. The coolest things I've found there include an Old Funeral comp, a purple Vargrav - Netherstorm, and an original pressing of Hawaii - One Nation Underground.

Green 81: some consulting business that doubles as a record store, open only on the first Saturday of the month. Only a small bit of metal (and only recognizable names like Scorpions), but worth looking into, as they will sell used rock LPs and singles for incredibly low prices. When I went, they were asking for $2 per LP. I found an Elvis vinyl there once.

Just want to let anyone from my area know that Redscroll Records in Wallingford, Connecticut has a great selection of metal, even some really obscure shit that you'd never think you would find in a small shop.

Also, I'm going to LA in a few weeks and would love to know what the best record stores for metal are there. I scoured the posts on the thread from a few years back and wrote the names down but any recent updates would be appreciated.

An old user here would always talk about Real Groovy. I don't know if that's the only one in New Zealand but that's the only one I know. :)
