Legendary Heavy Metal Record Store SLIPPED DISC RECORDS To Close

Legendary independent record store Slipped Disc Records of Valley Stream, New York has reportedly lost its lease and is doing a store-wide liquidation.

Slipped Disc Records has been the top independent record store for heavy metal, hardcore, rock and alternative music in the New York area since 1982. The store was featured in the documentary "Get Thrashed: The Story of Thrash Metal" and "Headbanger's Ball".

The makers of "Get Thrashed: The Story of Thrash Metal" last year posted a gallery of Slipped Disc Records "in-store" archives, featuring photos of such artists as MEGADETH, SLAYER, EXODUS and DEATH ANGEL holding signing sessions at the record store. Check it out at this location.
