We meet the people behind Crypt Of The Wizard, London's new metal record shop

When we found out that a brand new, dedicated metal record shop had opened in London, we had to go investigate

So, what was your plan when you set up Crypt Of The Wizard?

Charlie Woolley, manager: “Marcus [Mustafa, shop owner] and I grew up surrounded by vinyl, so once vinyl made a comeback it made perfect sense to us as fans to sell records. We’re pleased the scene has returned to music in the format it was intended, so we have this heavy metal jacket on our shoulders. Very few people become musicians just by picking up instruments; the process starts with putting on a record. Vinyl sounds so much nicer and you feel like you’re playing the record yourself when you position the needle.”
