All That is Heavy

Soothing troubled minds since 1997

All That is Heavy was the first (and is still the best!) online record store in the world dedicated to stoner rock, doom, heavy psych, sludge and desert rock. We specialize in hard to find Vinyl, but we also have an extensive catalog of CDs, a significant selection of T-shirts and a few DVDs here and there.

All That is Heavy has been in business for over 20 years so you can order from us with confidence. We are happy to come to work every day and we take great pride in our very excellent selection, customer service and secure packaging.

We also own and operate MeteorCity, our in-house record label.

I say "we" a lot, out of habit and professionalism, but the reality is that All That is Heavy and MeteorCity are both one-man operations. And, that one man is me! For both companies! My name is Dan Beland and you may know me as the creator/owner/operator of (RIP 2010).

Nowadays, I mostly focus on surviving as an analog retailer in a digital world. It's not easy, but it's what I do! I don't do it all by myself, though. I have one full time employee. She's a young person from the local community. Her name is Emily Daine and I certainly couldn't do all of this without her help! However, I'm still the graphic designer, the web developer, the accountant, the marketing department, general manager, customer service representative, etc, etc. I even take the garbage out once in a while.

So, please don't assume that we're a large company that can survive without your support. We definitely can't! And we appreciate it very much! I appreciate it very much and I would very much like to continue doing this for another 20 years (and so would Emily!)

In closing, I would like to encourage you contact us. Let us know what you think! Let us know what you love about All That is Heavy and also let us know if there's anything you don't love. Also, if you come across any errors, spelling mistakes, layout issues or any other website problems please report those to us right away.
