Hello Metalheads!


Welcome to the new homepage of Battle Cry Records.

On this page you will find a fully updated version of the regular Battle Cry Records homepage with all the infos about the Battle Cry releases as well as a complete list with product infos of all the releases on my former label Iron Glory Records.

Besides, we finally found the time to create an ONLINESHOP with over 13.000 different titles and still growing.

In this Onlineshop you find besides of new CDs a massive selection of obscure out of print CDs, vinyl Records, ´7´ Singles and Demo Tapes. We are focused on obscure 80ties Metal and Hard Rock as our speciality, but selling everything from Christian AOR to christraping Black Metal

As some of you might know already, I´m a big fan of traditional 80ties Metal and Hard Rock. I started listening to Heavy Metal at the age of 14 in 1988 and soon after that I started collecting Metal records and CDs. Beside of having an own record company, I always have lots of fun dealing with obscure Metal LPs and CDs. I´m selling CDs and records at record conventions since 1992 and I always wanted to create an own Onlineshop with stuff I have for sale. But as you can imagine, it´s really a lot of work putting up something like this and I never found the time doing it.

But finally here it is. Please apologize if you find any kind of mistakes in it. We are still working on the site. As you can see, many CD and LP covers are still missing, but we hope to have that completed shortly. Have fun digging!

After finishing the work on this homepage we will focus more on new releases again.


Watch out!
