Toronto Now Has a Heavy Metal Record Store. AWESOME.

Looking for some last-minute Christmas gifts for the metal fan on your list? Are you a metal fan looking to spend some of that Christmas money at Boxing Day sales? Then you might want to have a look at Stained Class Records, a brand new Toronto record store that specializes in metal and hard rock.

The place has been open since last Sunday (December 18) and is run by Inti Paredes and Ian Kilpatrick at the back of another store called Parkdale Platters at 1614 Queen Street West.

What can you find? All things metal: CDs, vinyl, cassettes, pins, patches, posters–you name it. They’re also looking for donations of old Krokus albums to create the biggest display of Headhunter covers.

I’m in. (Via NOW)
