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 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 or bands from the Birmingham area; 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, etc); 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 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.
