I bought two records that were warped and didn't work. I e-mailed them about it and they came up with excuses. No sense of responsibility whatsoever. This store is a scam. Don't go to it!!!!!!

If you don't know too much about reggae, Zion's Gate is not a horrible place to start. Reggae treasures are difficult to come by in Seattle and it is no surprise that you will not find any bargains at this specialty shop. In fact, most of

Excellent source of metal vinyls and CDs from underground metal labels, centering mainly around black metal. Also astounding are the many rarer, out of print editions of some albums I've seen around (Institute of Art Records' edition of Watchtower's Energetic Disassembly, 2002 EMG pressing of Athiest's Piece of Time, original jewel case versions of Burzum's albums, etc.). I don't own a turntable yet, but this is the first place I'd stop to stockpile on some of their excellent vinyl selection. They also sell a decent variety of t-shirts, pins, and patches if you're into those, as well. They also have a significant reggae/dub/electro selection but as I'm not as into those genres I can't comment much further there. Friendly staff too. The only bad things I could say about the place are that none of the albums come in their original shrink wrap (they leave the cases with inserts and booklets on display and keep the CDs in a backroom for you when you go to purchase), and it seems they mix the new CDs with their used ones (I've went against a few CDs I've found because some of the discs didn't look in the best condition). Also, not very good parking, which goes without saying in downtown Seattle. Despite these faults though, if you're into metal, and, I suppose, reggae too, then this place is well worth stopping by.

And in case you happened to notice, their main website is no more. You can now find their latest updates at their Kreation Records website (but as far as I can tell, the main store is still called Zion's Gate).

I agree, this place has a nice vibe: Friendly people and really the only Reggae selection in these parts. Jive Time Records is also known to put out crucial selections of roots reggae and dub as well. Zions Gate also stocks alot of metal, drum n bass, hiphop and rock sections even. I love the wall of picture disc metal LP's. Mostly reissue stock but I'm into collecting for the music anyways! Lots of rare and obscure stuff you cannot find at other shops.

I like the vibe at Zion's Gate: one part Cap Hill hippy, one part militant revolutionary. Coming off the busy street, this store is small and can get crowded easily just due to the location and congestion near the door. They have more than just reggae; over the years I have pleased with some of the older joints I have found there and they carry a lot of extra merchandise as well. Everyone is really nice there and the pretensions DJs tend to keep their distance.
