Never heard of this shop before but I'm so glad I found it just over a month ago, if you want to find not only the best of metal but also hidden gems and hard to find bands this store has a huge variety. I bought a bunch of Rush albums and they came in a week later all intact and play beautifully. Will definitely be buying again.

We visited at 10:15 on on Monday, soon after they opened. There were 2 or 3 other people in the store, with 3 staff members on hand.I got onto them when I was having lunch in Sydney - we’re from Brisbane - and I saw some other metalheads wander by. After about the fifth one, a person had an album and a bag that said “Utopia Records”.I was intrigued…There social media presence was first rate, with Facebook and Instagram updated a few times a day. Their website contained all sorts of tasty treats, so I was hooked.From the very first moment, you know you’re in for something special. The entrance is grunge grand and you walk downstairs into what well could be Aladdin’s Cave of Awesomeness.The stock was logically laid out into sections and everything was presented in alphabetical order.It was clean and bright.The staff were super helpful and attentive, often running off to see if that they had what I asked for, with about a 95.41% success rate (a Ghost t-shirt in my size was pushing the friendship… 😄)I was astounded by the range of music, shirts, memorabilia and… vinyl ❤️As a portent of things to come, they put on Ghost’s “Impera” as we walked in. We lasted pretty much the whole album as we wandered around, lost in the many intriguing wares on offer.I had heard good things about this store, but they exceeded my lofty expectations.They are well worth a visit, about an hour in store - but, bring money, because they will have many things that you won’t see elsewhere.


Utopia Records is the place to go to find the best heavy metal , rock & hard to find imports in Sydney .I have been supporting Utopia since the mid 1980’s when they started out at Martin Place and after a few changes of locations the current store at Kent Street is well placed & very well stocked with a huge variety of CD’s , LP’s, t-shirts , clothing accessories and too many other items to mention . Staff are super helpful and are true Metal heads from way back & know their stuff from Anthrax to Zoetrope and everything in between.Heavy Metal is the Law 🤘🔥🤘


Firstly, I can’t fault their online service at all. The LPs were delivered quickly and in some strong packaging and they throw in a thick, high quality album cover as well. However, as a non-metal looking guy, I found a couple of the people who work there a little snooty and judgmental to those of us who’ve grown out of wearing black, or sporting dorky board shorts with a metal t-shirt. Also, the shop seemed a little cramped and it didn’t seem to have that much vinyl. It had some merch of metal bands but nothing that great. The prices are very high, too. I’ve bought enough from the shop and that will be it from me.

Going to Utopia was my first time going to a store targeted towards metal and i absolutely loved it. The staff working were so kind and welcoming and the shop had an overall great vibe to it!! Will absolutely be going back :)
