Metal Mayhem – underground metal store moves to NorthcoteNovember 1, 2008
For those of you who like a chop and a lick and a flying v salute… Metal Mayhem for years has stocked a reasonably good range of headbangers’ delights on vinyl and CD, and has also been one of the mainstay ticket outlets for Heavy Metal gigs in Melbourne.
In a surprise move, literally as well as figuratively, Metal Mayhem has now left the city squall and descended upon the – hopefully – droves of Metal minions in Northcote on High Street. Realistically, we deduce that high rents has kicked the Metal store out of the city limits and out to The New Windsor (Northcote), and wish them luck at such a less central location. Apparently, they do mail order though, which might save some Metal fans who find Northcote a difficult trek.
Here’s the info from the Metal Mayhem myspace:
As many of you are now aware, Metal Mayhem is no longer located in the Banana Alley Vaults on Flinders St. Our new address, as of Sep 29 2008 is 459 High St Northcote. This address is between Northcote Station and Croxton Station if you’re travelling by train. There is also free off street parking along High St and free 2 hour parking at Northcote Plaza. The tram (Number 86, the RMIT/Bundoora Line) also runs right past the store.
We’ll be offerering a reward card upon purchase of new cds, as well as student discounts. We are also now stocks used cds etc as well as our comprehensive range of merchandise.
Don’t forget to check out the new Ilium album ‘Vespertilion’. Anyone that is a fan of ultra epic melodic traditional metal with power/progressive elements will love this. A great release from a local act and it features Lord Tim (ex Dungeon) on vocals. An absolute must, so support the local scene!
Finally, Jason Hodges the main person from Ilium and author, has a special going to Metal Mayhem customers.
