Formed in 1978, Heavy Metal Records is the oldest label of the Revolver Family.

A staple of the metal scene for decades, it’s still picking up pace as the UK’s pioneering hard rock and heavy metal label. 

We’re constantly updating our timeless catalogue with raw new releases. 

Check out some of our highlights below.




Our bands are the centre of our success.

That's why we welcome demo submissions - to seek out the latest talent and become part of our artists' stories.

Our policy of signing bands and artists has not changed since our foundation more than 40 years ago. We sign artists that we believe in, who are not constrained solely by their desire for "commercial success" but are passionate about their craft and their artistry.

If that sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you.
