Without The Hand­some Beasts, Heavy Metal Records wouldn't exist! Impressed by The Hand­some Beasts, HMR Man­aging Dir­ector, Paul Birch tried to get them a record deal approach­ing numer­ous major labels to ask if they were inter­ested in sign­ing the band. They weren't, and so Heavy Metal Records was born!

Sadly, Beasts front­man Garry passed away in 2005 (RIP) and the band were unsure about what to do, but remembered that just 18 months earlier that Garry had said whilst watch­ing Simon Hall (Front­man of Beholder) "When I peg it, that's the guy you want." The band approached Simon ini­tially to ask if he would fill in for some shows held in Garry's memory and decided that Garry was right and Simon was the guy that they wanted, and so Simon was asked to join The Hand­some Beasts on a per­man­ent basis. Simon stayed with the band until 2007 and in Decem­ber 2007 The Hand­some Beasts recruited none other than Rocky Shades (of Wrathchild) to take over vocal duties for the band. The band have since under­gone more line-up changes but are well and truly back in full force!
