ABOUT THE SHOP
Launched in 2020, Black City Records is a record store run by metalheads, for metalheads. Named after a song on the debut album from Voïvod, our aim is to offer the South West Heavy Metal community a hub for discovering and buying music from a range of independent and major labels. If we do not have what you are looking for in stock then we can probably source it for you, for collection or delivery. Just ask...
We are located on Trenchard Street (at the junction of Lodge Street) in Bristol city centre, 100 metres from our friends at the renowned Metal pub - The Gryphon, and a short walk from the O2 Academy venue and the iconic Hatchet Inn.
If you are in Bristol make sure to come and say hello. We'd love to see you. The coffee is always hot, always available and always black!
