Before I go on another big Merch spending spree, I want to see where else you guys get your stuff from

I buy it at festivals and gigs. Preferably directly from the band.

Hells Headbangers is usually pretty good in terms of price, depending on what you are looking for.

Usually from Discogs sellers.

For physical copies, always need to check discogs or amazon marketplace. For tshirts and such, there's a lot of places but Hells Headbangers tends to have the best selection for that. Nuclear War Now I check due to their prices (good) and CMDistro due to the variety. Ominous Domain due to the selection (prices are a bit high here at times).

The thing I do if I'm looking for a specific band is first check their M-A page and see what labels they are on/have been on and check those first. If that yields little results, then I'll go to the more obvious bigger places.

Ideally you can just buy directly from the band, but this isn't always possible. I've done this before for bands like Demilich and Obituary, who tend to have a strong and consistent online presence. Otherwise, it's difficult to do this.

Generally anywhere, but when I was looking specifically for logo pins, I only found a decent number offered from Metal Devastation.

The cap I wear every day has Carcass, Paradise Lost, and Overkill pins in it. My backpack has several others.

I know goddess.nl has quite a variety of metal pins. I work at festivals at the merchandise stand at some of the festivals during the season. Might be worth checking. At the festivals we have more of them though, also for caps and jackets.

Live shows, Warlord Clothing and Hell's Headbangers mostly. I get media at record stores or discogs.
