    That is a great list, there's many sites I did not know about.
    I would like to add one more on the record label / webstore -

    www.sentinelsteel.com

    great selection of used CDs, as well as lowest prices on new CDs - focus is on power metal, but lots of true/classic/NWOBHM/etc - the owner Denis is totally fan/customer-friendly and is a pleasure to deal with. My favorite place to obtain used and new CDs. (vking1) There is a mailing list setup, where you can subscribe to updates, and get advance info on new boxes incoming, special deals, etc.

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned Thrashmania80--excellent metal download blog, especially if you like old thrash metal (they have other stuff too).

    Also, the owner uses a Russian file storage site, so it is unlikely to be affected by the post-Megaupload problems with cloud storage.
