I'm sure this topic has been brought up time and time before. So a thousand apologies for taking another jab at a dead horse...

Just got a car. My first in eleven or twelve years. Gonna leave Chicago behind for a moment and get in the car for ten days and drive. No plans at all.

Can anyone give me the heads up on record stores in this fine country of ours that might have a concentration of metal records and related substance?

Thinking about staying in the middle of the country but I'm up for putting miles down.

Thanks for any information you can toss at a guy!

I haven't been there in years but Earwax Records in Madison, WI was pretty cool. As far as I know it's still open. If you want to make a big circle around Illinois, anyway.

Still there, and still a great store. The selection of used vinyl isn't much, but the used CDs are crazy.

My info is old, so I don't know if there's a more metal focused record store there, but Cincinnati has Shake It Records and Everybody's Records, which are "big" and general but definitely have nice metal sections.

Vertigo Music in Grand Rapids, Michigan is a very nice store. Good metal selection, vinyl and used.

INTO THE VOID RECORDS
461 Temperance St
Saint Paul, Minnesota

https://www.facebook.com/intothevoidrecordsusa

Open Tuesday - Saturday: 11:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.

Lots of new and used vinyl and CDs, plus tapes, DVDs, concert tickets, and books. Also an unholy amount of noise and related music genres. Shane (the owner) is one of the most knowledgeable people I've ever met regarding metal. A great resource and killer store.

My Mind's Eye in Lakewood, Ohio is very good. Charles, the owner, is a huge Black Sabbath fan and stocks quite a bit of metal. Not so much black or death but he has some. There are plenty of 12"s and 7"s to browse through.

Hell's Headbangers in Valley City, Ohio. Pick up an order and who knows? You might even get a tour of their compound.

Earwax is amazing. I went to the university of Wisconsin-Madison, and had the privilege of living two blocks away from the place. Needless to say, I was spoiled.

Just visited a few months ago and the place is as sick as ever. Rob, who owns the place, is always great to talk with too.

There is Neat Neat Neat here in Fort Wayne. There is a decent metal section and plenty of gems in the Rock section. I think they still have Cult Of Daath for cheap there.

Both with dedicated metal sections, new and used. Love garden is best store in the Midwest, easily and one of the best In the country.

I clean out all the good used stuff from Love Garden pretty regularly, but there are a few leftovers there...(actually, the new arrivals section sees a fairly steady trickle of metal each week)

I'll have to check out this Spektrum place Wink
