About metalshop




Žijeme tvrdou hudbou

We live for heavy music

From the day we've learned how to walk, we are visiting metal gigs, concerts and festivals. For more than 15 years we are selling official band merchandise and since then we've pleased thousands and thousands of our customers.

We choose the best pieces every day not only for our racks but especially for your wardrobes. We were the first ones to discover some - nowadays well established - brands for Czechoslovakia (Czech Republic and Slovakia). We aspire not just to sell metal merchandise but to set borders of the metal trends as well.

Welcome to METAL-SHOP.

Who are we?


I’m here for you in our brick-and-mortar store in Bystrice

“I love sport: biking, swimming etc. I love hardcore and candies. I avoid boredom and human foolishness.”



My camera met most of the stuff from Metalshop offer

“Sport is my favourite leisure, especially mountain trekking. I can make my mind clear during the trek or when climbing sport tracks on the rocks together with my close friends or my wife. The experience does not have to be positive but definitely intensive.”



I pack everything that comes to my hands so that you have your stuff at home as soon as possible

„Come with me if you want to live (A.Schwarzenegger, Terminátor 2). I’m an action movies lover, the same applies on good music and sport. My hobby is crossfit.“



Always ready to answer your calls and emails

“I love music above all (and I do write about it in my free time). I like tatoo and non-conventional outfit. I spend my free time on reading, watching films and surfing on the internet.”



I’m the warehouse manager and look after my bees

“My favourite catchphrase: White Fang shits on it from the Czech movie You Kiss Like God. I like mores, tattoos, good food and dancing. And I love my husband.”



I do the stuff the others have no idea about – computers

“Would never refuse delicious food. My hobby is imaginary guitar playing, the bas one. In Metalshop I do the things the others have no idea about: computers.”



I am the one woman at the one-man complaints department

“I don’t enjoy cooking but love tasting. In my free time I do cycling or watch movies. I lost my head over two things: my husband and Metalshop.”



I look after the money and deal with the administration

“I’m an optimistic thaiboxer, don‘t lack the sense of humour. I love my family, my partner, my life and of course my job in Metalshop, which I’m looking forward to every morning”



I'm the boss and I care of management side of our thing

„Metalshop is like my baby and I’m extremely proud of its growth. At the end of the day we just want to please our customers which is the most integral part of it all.“



I'm the boss and I care of our showroom in Bystřice

„Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden and Sepultura - rock and metal classic, that's what I like the most. Here in Metalshop I can pursue my dreams!“


Metalshop timeline

1998 - We've started to pursue our bold vision by opening the brick-and-mortar CRYT hardcore shop in Třinec, Czech Republic. It definitely wasn't an easy task but slowly we've managed to find our way towards an increasing amount of customers. First it were only hardcore underground fanatics, but as the time went on, families with kids and whole spectrum of rock and metal listeners became anxious to come and visit us. In that moment we've realised we definitely need to go online.

2004 - And so it happened. Metalshop as you know it was born. Well, it looked pretty much awful (hey, remember - it's 2004 when Photoshop was something extremely rare) but at that time, we were the only seller with this unique internet e-shop tool and therefore we've quickly become the major force in selling metal stuff around Czech Republic and Slovakia. No rest for the wicked though, our goal was not only to dominate our homeland but to spread across the planet.

2012 - We've launched European version of Metalshop with shipping all over the world. With that being said, we've desperately needed to move from small underground shop in Třinec and by that time we've managed to find perfect place for our massive expansion in small village Bystřice. Now we have our own Metalshop showroom which extends over an area of 300 m2 and currently covers all of our 20.000 products! But even though we are constantly growing, we still do our best to please our customers and select our goods by their eclectic music taste.

2014 - Here we are. Selling stuff all around the planet, having more than 20.000 products in stock and carrying our own legacy. It was really unusual decade, an unusual story that initially wasn't meant to be (selling metal t-shirts in Eastern Europe, are you nuts?!). But once again - here we are, stronger than ever. From bunch of total amateurs in the basement in Třinec to the global phenomenon. Not a bad achievement, don't you think? With all the glamour and success under our belts, we are staying 100% true to our roots though. For us there is only one driving force: LONG LIVE METAL!
