Various Artists

Heavy Metal Records have released a number of excellent compilation albums over the years: whether it's the hugely successful "Heavy Metal Heroes" series, more genre specific releases like "N.W.O.B.H.M." and "Rock Pretty," or albums to celebrate the metal scene in a specific country, with "Heavy Metal America" and "Heavy Metal Records Canada."

These albums feature between them an incredibly wide range of Heavy Metal acts, including some of the genres biggest names (Iron Maiden, Motörhead), along with some lesser known favourites from our own back catalogue. These albums are well worth a look, whether you're looking to listen to old favourites or discover bands that may have passed you by at the time.
