Welcome to Heavy Rock Records

Home of New Wave Of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM)

We’ve been asleep for a few years but COVID has woken us up! We started with humble beginnings in 1980, with the release of the infamous Ricochet single ‘Midas Light’. We are selling our old catalogue (physical/downloads) and some of our sister labels from the Birmingham area, which is legendary for its innovative music, especially New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM).

We will also be releasing NEW material (Ricochet Album, Reincarnation Vol 2); as well as adding songs from other NWOBHM bands over the next 12 months. If you are a NWOBHM band and want to be listed here, drop us an email! We have a large archive of bands photos, live recordings, rehearsal room tapes and demo tapes, which will be posted soon, including unreleased albums of The Handsome Beasts and Damien, and very early recordings from Ricochet.

Have a browse and spread the word!
