Let Us Introduce You To Greywoods!

Greywoods is Nashville’s grooviest, dirtiest and certainly most jawdropping metal band.

We have worked closely with the guys to bring you their incredibly intense music on vinyl, so on Saturday July 11th, we will make some of their new 7″ split release with Sheep Shifter available for sale.

Limited to 300, these contain some amazing etchings beneath the labels and come with a download code for both the vinyl version of Insignificance and the extended extra-doomy cut.

HLR Announces Signing of India Doom Merchants Shepherd!

shepherd stereo riff
Helmet Lady Records is damn ecstatic to announce the signing of crushing, India-based doom band, Shepherd. Our small family has grown quickly in 2015 and Shepherd serves as an important cornerstone in the development of the label as a nirvana of beautifully heavy music on vinyl.
Such big plans we have for these tunes!!
First off, Demonstration 2 is set to be released this Summer as #1 in the new HLR Ruination series as a newly mastered uber-limited, hot mixed, custom colored vinyl limited to only 111 copies featuring artwork by the band and four raw, powerful tracks that set the doom meter aflame. No phasers remained set on “stun” for this one, I can assure you!
Hit Invisible Oranges for an exclusive stream, today!

Next, HLR will delve into the amazing full length debut album, Stereolithic Riffalocalypse, which is scheduled to be released very late Summer or early fall with limited, boutique versions available including a die hard that includes a custom, deluxe art print and a unique band only custom version. 
Bludgeoning, menacing and brash, the album is a bold production that delivers the heavy in a huge way, and will leave you begging for more!
Both releases will be available on vinyl and digitally at www.helmetladyrecords,com 

HLR Welcomes 1886 To The Family!


Helmet Lady Records announced today that hard psych outfit 1886 has joined the roster for 2015!

Before The Fog Covers The Mount will see a limited vinyl release later this year, featuring 8 tracks of stunning retro psychedelia and groovage. Heavy, yet elaborate and complex, this album begs you take a wanderlust trip through a forgotten time and place off fuzzed, gypsy riffs and towering canopies of Barcelonian culture and history.

Release details are forthcoming and we hope you are as excited as we are!

1886 is on it’s way!!!
