I'd also suggest trying to find a "Half Price Books" near you though those are closer to the city I think. Found TONS of metal cds there for $1.00.

I've always found through record labels themselves. I also subscribe to some and get newsletters from them on a pretty frequent basis so I can see what they have. Willowtip, Ibex Moon and Nuclear War Now! immediately come to mind. Century Media also has a pretty good websotre, as does Nuclear Blast and Relapse.

@dcmetal: We have a Half-Price Books here, but I can never find metal. :'(

The one by me has tons of metal cd's in their clearence section. For vinyl they mainly have hard rock and 80's metal.

But I mean I download alot of cds but I also buy tons of vinyl, cds, and go to alot of shows so I don't feel bad for downloading stuff.

I follow a lot of labels on Facebook and usually prefer ordering CDs from them directly. A lot of occasions they also provide many attractive offers so its well worth it.

Other times I'd just purchase it directly from the band or there are some really good offers on Amazon too with the Prime shipping if you're a college student.

As many people have already said, Amazon.com is the way to go. eBay can be ok, too. I may buy 5-6 new CDs a year, and the majority of the others are used from Amazon.

That's the same here.

By the way, check out WOW-HD. Free delivery to most countries in Europe, and prices can often be very good because one of their suppliers is in South America. South American editions usually have the bonus tracks from European special editions on them. Very good for labels like Frontiers, Century Media, Nuclear Blast, Metal Blade and Napalm. You just have to keep checking back and wait for the inevitable reduction to 5.99 I've bought loads of stuff like Jon Oliva's Pain, Savatage, Edguy, etc. from there at that price. I guess you'd probably be best off with the Dutch version at www.wowhd.nl, or the UK version at www.wowhd.co.uk

There's a US version too. www.wowhd.us

God damn, DeKalb sucks, there used to be three awesome independent record stores here, but they all went out of business. I wish I had a FYE within like 30 miles of me. I might have to check out a Disc Replay or a Half Price Books next time I'm out in the suburbs. Until then, I'm stuck with online purchases and Best Buy's shitty selection, but on the plus side, I have a bunch of new websites to check out.

Does anyone from the Chicago area know if there's any of those three stores mentioned above in Elgin? I'm gonna be there on Saturday and would like to check it out. I'm pretty sure there's no FYE. I already checked that a few days ago.

I also prefer to go through the band's label or official merch store, or Amazon. Though we have some decent record stores in AZ and I'm also a big fan of the iTunes store. I rather like to sacrifice the piece of plastic sitting on my shelf for the convenience of being able to purchase and listen to an album instantly from the comfort of my home computer.

Personally, I like my pieces of plastic.

Other Amazon advantages: very quick delivery and not too many "extra costs".

I used to buy everything at Dis-order (now Discorder), but there were too expensive, even their base prices. They are no longer a metal only seller, but that's not a problem of course.
