Anything in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan? Grand Rapids has Vertigo, which has an amazing metal section, and Traverse City has RPM (which is a fantastic store for everything else, and a few metal gems can be found), but anything closer to the Canadian border?

Hi,

I'll travel to Orlando (FL) in February and I wonder if you could recommend me some good metal music stores in the area I should visit.

Park Ave CDs in Orlando has a decent metal CD and vinyl selection.

Yes, go to Vintage Vinyl in Fords NJ. Easily the best music store I've ever been to. They have a massive metal section (CDs and vinyl), along with any other genre you're looking for. https://vvinyl.com

Sorry for being difficult

Thanks for the heads up. I'm going to Grand Rapids in April and will now stop at this store.

Any good places for metal CDs in San Francisco besides Rasputin and Amoeba? I've heard of Stranded but from Google reviews it seems much more a vinyl oriented place, which I am not interested in.

Late notice, but I'm in Bangkok at the moment and could use some metal store recs. Specifically, I've read some good things about the Triple Six Shop and could use some confirmation if it is still in business. Their website is still up and running, but I've been fooled by online presence before.

It’s been a few years since it’s been mentioned in this thread, but are there any good record stores in the Dallas / Fort Worth area that would carry good metal vinyl?

So, if you happen to be in the Twin Cities, one of the best places is going out of business: Discland in Bloomington is closing, and they started their going out of business sale yesterday. It will be the end of a wonderful era where they offered great variety in music, movies, games, shows and other stuff. I bought three CDs, a Sega Master System game, and a Day of the Dead T-Shirt.

Burnley (Lancashire, North West of England): Astonishing Sounds. Bloody great big mountains of records and the geezer there can get hold of anything for you no hassle.

An update for those looking in Minnesota: Cheapo no longer charges excessively high rates for their used CDs (now usually $4-$9) and their new stuff is usually $9-$17. Electric Fetus might have a better selection of metal.

Updates for Cleveland, OH

Nosferatu Records on Detroit Avenue, around West 65th near the Capitol Theater. I tried searching for it online and found nothing, but it's there. Primarily vinyl. Lots of underground death/black metal, punk/hardcore, and classic rock. Small shop, but worth the trip - if you're from the east side and travelling towards Lakewood on Detroit Ave., it's a quick stop and there's a free parking lot right next to it. The owner is a super chill dude.

Black Market (also on Detroit Ave. at West 54th), which I mentioned in my other post, has very odd hours, so I'll post them here:
MON - Closed
TUE - Closed
WED - 3-7 pm
THUR - 3-7 pm
FRI - 6-8 pm
SAT - 1230-8 pm
SUN - 3-7 pm
They also run a 'heavy metal flea market' biannually (their Facebook page would have the exact dates), and it's a great chance to both buy and sell. I went in the Summer last year and had a blast.

And finally: there's a store at South Park Mall called "K Unique Gifts". It's not a metal shop, but there's quite a bit of odd paraphernalia that most metalheads would find pretty cool. They also have knives and katanas and other sharp, questionable objects. It's on the second floor.

Hi, I'm trying to find some places with metal or punk stuff in Los Angeles. I've already checked out Amoeba and vacation vinyl. I'm specifically looking for places with cds and tapes because I don't use vinyl. Looking for places not too far from alhambra, downtown, and pasadena. Places in the San Gabriel Valley are good too, I live in El Sereno so I can get out there pretty easily. I'm looking for places that are pretty cheap too so yeah. If you have recommendations for places outside of the areas I listed, don't hesitate to tell me.

The store itself has a huge selection of metal. They also have an entire separate section of Black Metal. I have been to stores all over the world and few this size have a BM section. I was very impressed.

just wanted to name drop a few recommendations of good stores i know of in a couple different spots.

first, anyone in toledo, OH should check out allied record exchange. i don't know the geography of the city too well since i don't live there, but i believe it's across the street from miracle mile. very decent metal selection there. i grabbed a copy of death - human on vinyl last time i was up there.

the record store in my city, retrofit records in tallahassee, FL, has a pretty decent metal selection, but everything is quite overpriced. more of a focus on new records. but the dude in charge is definitely a metalhead and has pretty good taste.

lastly i gotta namedrop my dad's record store, beach records in ft. myers, FL. it's an amazing store all around and he tends to keep a pretty good metal selection on hand. great prices. one of the best record stores in the state if you ask me.

not sure if any of these have been mentioned, but just wanted to contribute to an awesome thread.

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.

Im closer to Vintage Vinyl in Fords, NJ which rules, but always looking for more stores...

I was In Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia las week in a business trip. After googling for metal shops in the area, the Campbell Complex mall showed up in my searches. Luckily the place was about 5 minutes in taxi from my hotel. In the second floor there are around 6 small stores dedicated to metal music. One of them is Nebiula Records which unfortunately was closed at the time (I was told they are doing some renovations to the store and wont open in a couple of months). However, in the other shops I was able to get a nice variety CD's of extreme metal bands from Malaysia, some of them even hard to find in Ebay. I bought music from Remain Suffering, Silent Death, Cromok, Suffercation, Sil Khannaz, F.T.G, Gemuloh, As-Sahar, Ulterior Decimation, Sick Society within many others. If you are planning to be in Kuala Lumpur, you should check this place.

Great rock-metal shop in Almaty, Kazakhstan - Kobzon
You can easily find it with Google Maps
Here you can find not only t shirts from international artists but also CD's and shirts from local bands.

I seem to recall Cheapo not being too bad last time I went into one, but it has been a while. I don't think I've ever even been to Electric Fetus.

I'm going to Las Vegas next month to see Helloween, are there any shops with good metal CD selections other than Zia Record Exchange? I don't care about vinyl or cassettes or anything else.

And speaking of Zia Record Exchange... since there are 2 Zia locations in Vegas, one on Eastern and the other on Sahara, is one better than the other? Are they both basically the same? Would it be advisable to prioritize one over the other? Would it be worth it to visit both?
