DoctoR DooM: This Seed We Have Sown LP (blue)

Missed this one when it was released (STB stuff seems to sell out quite fast, maybe too fast) and reason for that was our little cat and health problems he faced earlier this autumn. Anyways, I had to skip this one and many other records that time. Few days ago I got this package from France and I was surprised that on address label of the package “Vinyl Diaries” was mentioned.. Opened the package and found this damn good “retro” rock album inside. Doctor Doom and their debut album “This Seed We Have Sown”. I do not know what have I done to deserve this, I have never asked any free stuff etc. it’s not the point I keep up this blog of mine. But like everyone else, I love getting some free stuff especially when it’s something I am missing. Thanks to Mr. Blomfield for sending this hard-hitting album and most humble thanks to SteveSTB because I know that he has something to do with this. Recommended album and you can still get your hands on this album via hhv.de & All That Is Heavy (for example). Go and get a copy when you still can, yeah it’s that good!

 

Elephant Tree: Theia LP (TriColor)

Finally, it’s here on my sweaty hands. Been listening this one via BandCamp for ages now and finally it has arrived (actually few days ago) even though it was sent to my old address.. luckily our bureaucratic postal system was generous enough to redirect this and did not return it to the sender (as they normally do). I love this album, it’s crushing and same time so fragile.. I do not even know what I’m trying to say here, just listen this to yourself, bluesy stoner metal/rock is the name of the game. I pre-ordered this months ago and it came out on this tri-colored vinyl (limited to 125 copies). This version is obvious sold out but there are still two other colorways available from Magnetic Eye Records (I’m not sure about limitations of these two other versions..but according MER’s BandCamp page, both are limited to 50 copies each and that black/bronze color in color looks awesome!!). Recommended album, highly!!
