Well, it has been a while since the last post but I have a quite good reason for that. We went and bought a house, tired of living in these apartment buildings. All these paper works and arrangements has taken so much time recently so I haven’t been able to give time to this hobby of mine that much. But back to the bottom line, got this latest from Full Of Hell last week (or was it a week before […]
Yesterday my Bolt Thrower collection grew up with one album, In Battle There Is No Law. One of those albums that formed my music taste years & years ago. I Remember how my friends use to play those role (board) games back then (wasn’t my thing) and on the background they always had Sabbat, Manowar and.. Bolt Thrower records playing. This was my first touch with this grindcore/death metal overloard. Never had a chance to own this original copy until […]
Look at this beauty! I never had a possibility to purchase this album back then, local record store in my late hometown never had this one from Terrorizer available. Oh I remember those days, LP purchases based mostly on the cover pictures of the albums and lousy reviews from some shitty domestic music magazines. It took 28 years to get this and same amount of years to hear the album for the very first time… shame on me. Aarrgghhh.. The […]
One more original pressing to my collection. Fifth full-length from mighty Bolt Thrower. This Death/Grind band has been one of my favourite years & years and I have been hunting down silently these original pressings. Within last three-four months I have managed to grab so many great records from that era. Now I’m waiting for 3 first one from Cannibal Corpse & Sepultura’s Schizophrenia to arrive. As you can see, I really love those old good death/thrash/speed/grind bands. One more […]
Hah, here’s some modern Death/Grind metal in your face. I don’t follow death/grind scene nowadays but once in a while this kind of filthy monsters pop up from the void surrounding us. This is Contaminated’s debut album and it’s raw & sick, it shows that this Australian band knows what they are doing and in my opinion they are doing it pretty well. This cup of tea is not for everybody but surely there’s a place for this record next […]
It has been a while since I have heard anything from this band but this record broke that silence. Previous album I have bought from this band was “Throned In Blood” and I really liked it, and I like this one as well.. even though this is far more heavier, raw, brutal & and has a political message hidden beyond. Actually this is more like raw grindcore to me. Love this duo because they do what ever they want. LP […]
Yes, it’s a book but damn good one and now it’s available from The Decibel Magazine’s webstore as a revised & extended version. This book does not cover the whole story of death metal nor grindcore but it surely is one of a kind release. For me this is like a journey to the year 1990 when I was totally blown away when I placed the debut album by Deicide on my turntable… and along came Napalm Death, Entombed, Carcass, […]
New jewel from Earache’s re-pressing plant! Carcass and their debut album “Reek Of Putrefaction”. Once again in the picture you can see original version (from 1988) and the newest one. This is one of those “classic” albums that are always on my wantlist. Awesome album. This “color” is limited to 100 copies and sold out from the source. If you are after this album, I recommended to visit Earache’s webstore, there are still other color variations left.
War Master.. in the picture you can see original version from 1991 and the latest repress of this amazing record. This new repress came today and I do not even know why I purchased it.. well, it’s Bolt Thrower you know. This repress is limited to 100 x “Profane Creation”, 200 x “Cenotaph Grey”, 300 x Shreds Of Sanity”, 400 x “Rebirth Blue” and 900 copies of “Afterlife Black”.. This “Profane Creation” colored is sold out but other color variations […]
This came today, and I’m happy that Earache repressed this one (I’m not ready to pay those Discogs nor Ebay prizes for the original copy). Managed to crab this white/red copy. Limited to 1900 copies (according to Discogs), 100 copies on “spearhead” grey, 200 copies on “Templar’s” red & white, 300 copies on “Byzantine” yellow, 400 copies on “Imperial” purple and rest 900 copies on “sea” black. Available from good record stores around the globe, I think.
At last this was released on vinyl, big hand to Svart Records. This was quite unique band from Finland. Xysma evolved with every record they made, starting with grindcore and ended up playing some kind of mixed garage rock or something. This record is limited to 500 copies on black vinyl and is available from Dark Descent.
And this came today too. Even though I do not like very much of these split releases I wanted to give this a chance. Quite epic tune from Bongripper. I also liked very much of Hate, lovely grindcore, not mind-blowing but very enjoyable. This is limited to 100 copies on smoke and 400 copies on black vinyl. Black one still available from Bongrippers Bandcamp site.
Latest 7″ that came today. Votnut, some kind of mixture of grindcore, black metal etc. Bought this bundle (numbered 7″ and test press 7″) from Antithetic Records. Well, what could I say.. I like this as I usually like every record I buy. This is limited to 500 copies and there was also 13 test press copies (those are sold out, surprisingly). Available from Antithetic Records.
Maybe the best band in grindcore “genre” (like Bolt Thrower). Got this record from a friend couple of years ago. This is those records I never going to left behind. This Swedish band was (and still is) one of my all time favourites. Available yes but you have to be ready to pay little more.
I can still remember the moment when I placed this record on my turntable for very first time. I couldn’t believe my ears, total earache and mental abuse! Mind blowing record this was and still is. I found this vinyl again from second-hand store about 6 years ago, it was must buy.
This also cane today, ordered this from Nuclear War Now! and seems that they have this and what’s great; They have 25% off on entire NWN distro till the end of the year. This is limiteddiehardedition of this vinyl. There’s no info how many they have pressed but so what, in the end it’s just music. And this sounds BRUTAL! Buy and cry!
There are 1000 red copies of this record floating around, I bought mine from local record store and I haven’t seen another copy of this record anywhere. Punk record, or more likely hardcore band with some strange grindcore influences. Nice. If you can find this somewhere, buy it immediately!
One of those records that I lost and found again. Bought this first time only for the cover :) well, I was young those days and any record with cool cover was hot, I thought so. Few years ago I found the lyric sheet of this record inside Eleni Karaindrous “The Suspended Step Of The Stork” record ?!? I hunted this sometime and found it from Discogs. Lovely record.
Once again I have to admit that I totally missed when these came out (it was period of my life that was filled with indie pop.. ) Unopened packages, limited to 250 copies of this color (I have these on cd also, no need to open these..yet :D ) Thanks to Metal Blade for re-issuing these. Everyone should try Bolt thrower, even a little.
