SCRAPE Records opened its doors on November 1, 1997, and has never looked back since. Proud to be the only metal and hard rock specialty store in the Pacific northwest, SCRAPE Records quickly became known as THE place to visit for metal pilgrims from all over the world. An online presence was established in 1998, and the store's reputation grew stronger. Visiting bands often hold in-store signings at SCRAPE Records, and we've had more than our share of visits from metal and non-metal celebrities. Some highlights over the years include:
- In-store signings by Opeth, Testament, Amon Amarth, Strapping Young Lad, Arch Enemy, In Flames, Cradle of Filth, Cannibal Corpse, Meshuggah, Cryptopsy, Soilwork, and more
- Releasing a compilation of Vancouver metal and hard rock bands, garnering world-wide attention for some our city's finest acts
- Performances by local bands in the store
- An ever-expanding collection of metal and hard rock vinyl, we try to get our hands on EVERYTHING!
- Coverage by local and national news media, including CBC Radio 3, the Vancouver Sun, the Georgia Straight, and more
- Oft-used interview location for Vancouver's own Nardwuar the Human Serviette on MuchMusic
