Metal is never boring
Ever since the early seventies when Black Sabbath took the sounds of the Birmingham factory where they worked and turned them into music, metal has been a genre like no other. A haven for outsiders the world over, and home to some of the planet’s most dizzyingly talented musicians, metal has never stopped innovating in its 50-year history. Every generation of bands has added something new to the mix; the ambition of Iron Maiden, the rawness of Metallica and Slayer, the powerful riffs of Megadeth.
We stock a wide range of music formats to suit all different needs. From CDs and cassette tapes for the car, to vinyl records that are ideal for enthusiasts and collectors; we have something to suit all needs. Whether you’re looking for your favourite band’s new album, something new to listen to, or even a gift for the metal fan in your life; you’ll find plenty to explore at WHSmith.
