I was actually kind of disappointed in Vintage Vinyl in Fords, NJ this past weekend. Yes, they have a metal section and even a seperate Black Metal section. The viny metal section was really lacking. Quite a bit of empty tabs, where there was actually nothing at all for that artist. There was actually nothing at all for Napalm Death, Deicide or Morbid Angel among others. I havent been there in a while and I'm not really sure what happened. Really sucked. Even though I live in NJ, it is a bit of a haul for me being in soutern NJ.

Scratch 'n Spin in Columbia, SC has some great finds now and then for those near here that are unaware of it. I bought the first three Saturnus albums from there (all 1st pressings) for only $36 altogether.

Amoeba music is killer. If you've been to the Amoeba in SF but not the LA one, the LA one is much bigger and has a much better selection. I haven't been to the Berkeley location so I can't compare to that one. Amoeba deals with all genres though, and metal is just a small slice of their selection. But for a brick and mortar store that does all genres, I have no complaints at all.

If you want to make a little trek to Downey (I think it took me like an hour or so from LA) there's Dark Realm Records which is a small shop that deals mostly with death and black metal. I've found stuff of other metal genres there too, especially folk/pagan. They also got a good selection of merch.

This is a bit of a long shot; I'm trying to remember the name of a store I visited whilst on exchange trips to Germany in 1992 and 1993. I'm fairly sure it was in Köln, but there is a possibility it may have been in Aachen, since we also visited there.

It was a large multi-floor department store, selling electrical goods, clothes, household stuff etc, but it also had a good sized music department in the basement, with a decent Metal section. I bought some of my first death metal tapes there.

I remember the security was quite tight; you had to leave bags and rucksacks in lockers at the entrance.

Does this ring a bell with anyone?

The best and the biggest in entire Toronto is Sonic Boom at 215 Spadina Avenue in downtown. But make no mistake, its not exactly Montreal when it comes to Metal.

Back in the early 00s when I used to shop there, that place was amazing. They had almost everything, and tons of underground releases you would never expect to find.

It does seem like more recently, judging from what little shows in stock on their website, that their selection has really started to become not so special. I’m not sure if that’s due to the times we're in and people not spending what they used to on physical media, or if it’s because a lot of the metalheads that used to work there have left. In either case it’s a shame.

Any good metal records shops in Jacksonville, Florida? I usually get my music stuff online, but I would love to see what Jacksonville has in terms of metal shops.

Rock Ape Records in Townsville, Queensland. Australia.
Caters to all music genres, but specialises in metal and horror.

Bristol, UK has just had a new record shop open in the city centre today! It's called Black City Records, filled with a selection of vinyl from across the metal spectrum.

Good afternoon all, I'm new here, from France.

Do you know metal disc shops in Strasbourg or Alsace, in France? I mostly like CDs and want to find bands I can't find on my discshops.

Phoenix, AZ is down to Zia Records now I think. We used to have an AWESOME metal store called "Metal Devastation" here and at one point they were doing so well they opened up a second location. Then the internet hit hard in the mid 2000s and people stopped buying music and they closed. There are multiple Zia locations but the ones on 19th Ave and Camelback and 25th Ave and Thunderbird are the two best locations. They price very fairly and I have on several occasions found LPs cheaper there than online. Most that live around here know Zia but maybe someone from out of town won't...
