I was looking for good online shops for underground/extreme metal and punk but can't find much. Do you guys can recommend any which are trustworthy? I found this: http://www.hellsheadbangers.com

Anyone ever used it? Can you recommend it? Thanks!

Hells Headbangers is probably the single most recommended distro on metal-archives. It's one of the most frequent answers to "where'd you buy that album" and "where'd you find that patch". It's definitely reliable.

In addition to HH, I've had good experiences with Redstream: http://www.redstream.org/ And while it is their specialty, they do more than just extreme metal. I bought my first Manilla Road CD there.

I had an excellent experience ordering from Nuclear War Now! Productions. The order was put together and shipped very fast, and I even got reimbursed seven dollars after shipping turned out to be cheaper than predicted. Great service.

I recently did business with Dark Descent Records and the shipping time and communication were both top notch.

RedStream is really excellent! Got my Mars On Earth CD from them. Very well packaged, and fast too!

Hell's Headbangers and Red Stream are definitely my favorites. I've ordered a lot from Negative Existence, The Omega Order, and an Ebay store called Apothelyptic Reign as well and they've been top-notch.

Well there are thousands of extreme metal distros out there. I know of a few underground DIY labels that I've had good experience with.

Skull Fucking Metal distro in particular is pretty cool, they've got rare stuff on their distro list. The only set back is there are no images for products and whatnot. He sells a lot of underground extreme metal, punk, and other types of heavy metal in general.

If you're looking for more, there are tons of distros you can explore and shop in listed in The Marketplace subforum.

Good call. I've had several perfect transactions with Negative Existence as well.

I'm going to self-promote here, and maybe someone who's ordered for me can attest to my manner of operations.
Low priced items, selection of lesser-known bands, inexpensive, prompt shipping, etc...
