Paradise Lost: The Plague Within 2XLP (red)

lost

Just look what I got here! It took only 24 years to find this band again (and their newest long play). Our paths separated years and years ago and for me their last proper album was called “Gothic”  now our paths have crossed again. I like this album, it just sounds like this band used to sound over twenty years ago. Album for those who remember. There must be several versions of this record available (colored, box sets, deluxe,, etc.) but I settled with this red one (limited to 200 copies and seems to be sold out from OMerch). Deluxe Box Sets including black vinyls seems to be available though..

Muscle and Marrow: The Human Cry LP

Muscle And Marrow

And finally.. I got a pristine copy of this stunning record on my hands! Actually I bought first copy of this record about 8 months ago but extremely well-packaged album arrived ruined (thanks to Postal delivery  & you can check from here what they did to my precious purchase). I got refunded by the band even though it wasn’t their fault. I must have had some kind of aberration at that time because I never purchased another copy until now. Anyways, this copy came extremely well-packaged like that previous one with one exception, it arrived in pristine condition. Beautiful release, experimental, dark, cold and that voice.. This is a kind of music you better listen via headphones… while standing on the beach, watching the open sea where storm clouds are slowly gathering.. pure hopelessness and one of my favorite albums. Still available from their BandCamp site. No idea about limitation but that’s not the point, just grab a copy while you still can.

Those Poor Bastards: Vicious Losers LP (gold w/black splatter)

jau2

Sitting on the train listening this miserable album but train ain’t moving, some one has jumped in the front of approaching train and we just wait here while they are solving this incident. Sad things happen. Anyways, I got this album yesterday and as a great fan of this sad & miserable duo I’m loving these darkened “gothic country” tunes. Let them spread their sorrowful message throughout the whole globe. Total pressing of this album is 200 copies on gold w/black splatter, 200 on red w/hint of purple swirl and 200 copies on bone & clear half ‘n’ half vinyl. Gold one is sold out though but those two other color variations are available from Tribulation Recording Co.

Have A Nice Life: The Unnatural World LP (milky clear with ox blood haze…)

have a nice life

Yep, this one came just from The Flenser, yes! Really haunting shoegazing-gothic-noise-drone-etc. record indeed. I have to say that this album will hunt me, rest of my days. I had no expectations towards this release but now that I have listened it through couple of times, I find this album marvelous in it’s own haunting way. Capturing sea of sounds, distant vocals and the emotions on this flat polyvinyl chloride disc, wow! This color variation is limited to 300 copies and these literally sold out within few hours. No worries, you can get regular black copies for example from the source, The Flenser. Recommended!
