Sister label to Revolver Records. One of the original NWOBHM labels, we started in 1978 and have been releasing music ever since!

Currently wearing the HMR logo with pride are UK Thrashers Hellfighter and Flameco fused Glam Latin Rockers Gypsy Pistoleros.
You can read more about our past and present bands over on our Artists Page.
Based in glamorous (and sunny) Wolverhampton, HMR has flown the flag for Heavy Metal - in particular the NWOBHM movement - since the late 70s. At one point, we ran Heavy Metal Records, Heavy Metal America for the USA, Heavy Metal Worldwide for overseas releases and Heavy Metal International. We’ve since downsized a little but our fan base remains as loyal as ever -- and demand for our most popular albums is unrelenting which shows that there are still a good few true music fans out there. \m/
