Great for all your extreme metal, hardcore punk, and garage rock needs, with a fantastic selection of underground vinyl and patches in the basement, and a polite and informative staff.

Love it

My favorite record store in the world. They have a section for both new and used metal, and merch! Fantastic place, you can easily spend hours searching through the CDs.

The BEST record store in NYC

Last summer I stumbled across this place while exploring the Greenwich Village area. I was blown away! Spent another 2 days going all over the city trying to find a record that matches it...doesn't exist! They have a very respectable heavy metal section with lots of stuff that is near impossible to find in stores including dvds...and that's just upstairs. Downstairs they have a whole wall of used metal including merch. CDs are very cheap. Found a 3IOB cd 2 days after it was released used for $8! HANDS DOWN THE BEST RECORD STORE IN NYC!
