And here’s a one I waited so much that I even purchased tape version even though I vinyl version preordered. Heard about this band (and their debut album) first time through STB Records few years ago. I bought that debut album straight away and since STB signed the band I have been waiting for more. Here it is now, Olde’s second album and damn this is good. If you like your stoner/sludge/doom played with hint of hardcore mixed in it, […]
This has been on my rack for ages and just realized that I haven’t mentioned this masterpiece here on my blog. Thing is that I didn’t knew anything about this band when I heard “Against The Grain” for the very first time. Nine years and still I love this album, noise rock, hardcore at it’s best. Should spin this more often just because.. this rocks. This could be little hard to find these days but if you after a copy, […]
These I bought for myself as a christmas present. As you can see all three albums are represses, I can’t afford to buy original copies (surprise). I have this difficult relationship with Neuosis just because there’s one album above all (in my opinion) and that’s “The Eye Of Every Storm”. Yeah, I have purchased all their albums after that release but this particular album is a sort of cornerstone, or something, to me. Well, now it’s time (at last) to get little more […]
Then I have always time for stuff like this here, Young And In The Way & their hard-hitting debut album, “I Am Not What I Am”. Sometimes I got lucky with Discogs and find these jewels for decent prize. This is what it is, blackened-crust-hardcore-metal blowing ear-wax out of your cranium. This here is the original version, hand-numbered and limited to 100 copies. If you want this, I suggest you to check out what Discogs has to offer. Great one […]
Got this one from The Flenser few days ago. I’m smiling, just because this album is totally insane. Noise, industrial, samples, hardcore.. you name it. I can’t help myself but some distant way this reminds me of Johnny Violent and his awesome album “Shocker”. Anyways, this is refreshing album in every possible way. If you want to blow your brains away with music, try this one. This colored version is limited to 250 copies but first hundred copies came with […]
Neurosis is Neurosis, what else there is to say. I have listened this few times now and I like this a lot, but this one needs time like every album Neurosis has ever put out. My friendship with this band started with their awesome “The Eye Of Every Storm” album, and I still find it best Neurosis record ever. I just have to give this new one some space and I know that in the end we are still close […]
One of those records which have been on my “wantlist” for ages (original pressing) has been repressed by Apocaplexy Records recently. And once again, awesome release from this awesome record label. Yes, I know I have said that I do not care that much about represses but I do not have money to buy original copy of this record with those Discogs prizes. I’m more than happy with this one, like I’m with those two other repress I have managed to […]
This came yesterday along with that The Phuss twelve-inch. I did not order this and I was little confused so I decided to email Magnetic Eye Records about mistakenly shipped item, actually I secretly hoped that there’s a reason for this.. And there was, Mike from MER mailed back saying that this 10 inch is too good not to share and I totally agree. This little one is filled with hardcore, metal & punk. Not bad at all! I really […]
Finally this LP has been repressed (this time by Denovali). Originally this was released by E-vinyl Records back in 2008 but the reason I never purchased this was simply that it was released on picture disc. Now this massive debut album from this doom/post/hardcore band is in my hairy hands. This repress is limited to 150 copies on clear w/ blue splatter and 350 copies on black vinyl. Clear one is sold out from the source but still you can get […]
Yeah, and then we come to this split release by The Old Wind & Terra Tenebrosa. As I’m a great fan of Terra Tenebrosa I was totally surprised when I found out that they have done this split seven-inch with The Old Wind (band that I’m unfamiliar, well listening their tune at this very moment and sounds quite nice indeed). Ordered this from Pelagic Records with that Cult Of Luna twelve-inch just because of Terra Tenebrosa but it’s always nice […]
I got this one today, bought it from Ebay few weeks ago. Strange thing is that this was still sealed, in mint condition and cost me £14.36 shipping cost included. Not bad deal at all considering that this was released about 12 years ago and I haven’t seen any copies of this one in years. I know that this band is/was very hard one to chew for some HC fans. I do not mind about those “poser” talks because I […]
I had to exception with this latest album from Celeste. Had to purchase picture disc edition even though I do not really much appreciate idea of picture discs. Well, this looked nice enough and I’ve always loved visual side (and musical, of course) of Celeste’s records. This beauty is released by Denovali and quality is awesome s usual. This picture disc version is limited to 200 copies and sold out already but, there is 2nd press available from the source, […]
This is also one of those records from my “wantlist”, have been on that list for years.. Finally I “managed” to purchase this one. This is 3rd pressing of this record and damn what a beauty this record is.. when you hold this one against the light, it looks like this: Awesome record indeed. Limited to 200 copies on this form and 300 on classic black vinyl. Both versions available from.. Denovali (surprise, surprise).
And yet another find from Discogs. Early Denovali releases I have been looking for. And I really like this one, damn. This was limited to 250 copies on this color and 250 copies on clear vinyl with red haze. This is those already sold out items but you can still find yours if you look around the web..
As I said before, this has been really quiet week for my vinyl hoarding. This came yesterday and this record reminds me of early Cult of Luna and some other band that I can’t remember right now. Nice record for those who like this kind mixture of some post-rock tunes and hardcore singing. This colorway is limited to 100 copies as well as copies on white vinyl. There are also few other colorways available from Narshardaa Records.
Got this from Denovali yesterday. This is repress of Switchblade’s third album and I was quite happy to found Denovali (with Trust No One) releasing this one. There are 500 copies made (150 copies on grey, and 350 copies on black vinyl). Available from Denovali.
Now we are speaking! This might be the record of the year! Been waiting vinyl version of this record nearly 12 years and now I have this absolute beauty on my tiny hands. This record took my breath away 12 years ago and still does. This is limited to 500 copies (100 copies on clear and 400 copies on black vinyl). Available from the source Apocaplexy Record (you can also purchase few records from Terra Tenebrosa while you are visiting the […]
I ordered this from Season of Mist last week and album arrived yesterday. Kvelertak’s debut album was amazing (still is) and this is once again amazing release. Nice to see that this band is evolving, moving forwards. About limitation, I think no one knows and cares about that. According to Season of Mist (sold out from their store) this colorway is limited to 500 copies but who knows. Recommended, obviously.
I haven’t been updating my little blog for a while because I have been struggling with never-ending flu & fever. But this came today, been waiting this to arrive too long. I had an issue with customs about this record but finally it’s here. Only sad thing about this record is the fact that there are still distributors who does not seem to understand how to send vinyl albums in proper way. Ok, this was in mailer with buffers etc.. […]
And little heavier stuff this time. This is also quite unfamiliar band to me. Saw this record on some distro and after listening few tunes I decided to purchase this. Nice cover, even though it can’t be seen on this picture. For example you can purchase this (on black or clear vinyl) from Southern Lord.
Good rock ‘n’ roll record in the spirit of Hellacopters etc. This brings a smile to my face every time I listen to this lovely album. This is pure “Summer Soundtrack”. No idea of limitation but according to Discogs this is tour edition of this record, limited to 200 copies… hmm.. never been on their gig and yet I have this. Anyways, available for reasonable prize (black and blue versions) at ShirtKiller. Highly recommended if you like your rock ‘n’ roll […]
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.
Damn what a good album from this great Swedish band! Ten years ago when this album was released I was on fire hearing this! And still I’m on flames when listening this record. The fact that L.G. Petrov from Entombed is singing in last tune of this album makes this even more greater! Yes, this is my opinion and if YOU have “Death is Glorious” on seven-inch vinyl, I’m ready to buy that jewel!!
Bought this from Denovali few years ago and this is still surprisingly good record. For fans of Cult Of Luna, Isis etc. Seems that this is limited to 1000 copies, 700 copies on this color variation and 300 copies on translucent and rainbow splatter vinyl. Available from Translation Loss Records.
And this one, bought this years ago and “never” have had time to get familiar with this. Have to update that fact now. Great band. Even though their album “Salvation” is my all time favorite album, this is a beautiful piece of art. I think this was limited to 1000 copies on black vinyl, there seems to be also color version floating around and prizes are floating somewhere beyond Jupiter and Neptune. Black version is more easily to find and […]
And this jewel also came today. Few weeks ago I was in right place in the right time (on my computer late at night) and saw tweet about Isis vinyls available from http://www.realtomatoketchup.com And here it is, Robotic Empires edition of this fine album, first press and limited to 300 copies on this color. Nice. Indeed. There was little dents on few corners of the record but so what! Love.
Well, in my opinion “Oceanic” is the best release this band ever made. I’m not saying that this is somehow bad album, I just prefer “Oceanic” better. Isis is Isis as we all know. Bought this few years ago from Discogs and prize tag was very reasonable. This is from first press, limited to 400 copies. There’s also 100 copies on clear blue, 1000 copies on yellow and 1500 copies on black vinyl. Don’t even know how many times this […]
This band was new to me, never heard before. According record company’s webpage there are 100 hand-numbered copies on red vinyl and 350 on black vinyl (I have a red one but maybe they used invisible ink when numbering these). This is very heavy and dark recording, the way I like it to be. You can get this one from Wifagena Records, quite cheap.
Little harder stuff this time. Purchased this album (along “Beyond The Infinite: The Assembly Of God” 12″) last year. There are guys from Fall of Efrafa and Dungeons in this band. Some kind of mixture of post-whatevermetal and hardcore. Sounds great, if yo are into this kind of agony. Limited to 100 copies on marine/green, 100 copies on grey with black splatters, 100 copies on grey blue, 1200 copies on black vinyl and there is also limited edition of 200 […]
This one came today, been waiting for this one to arrive nearly a month. Well now this little treasure is in my hands. Ordered this from Brutal Banda Records, white one is now sold out (100 copies) but they still have this on coke bottle clear vinyl (limited to 400 copies). So, what are you waiting for?
Interesting Finnish band. Jussi Lehtisalo from Circle, Samae Koskinen (pop/rock/singer/songwriter), Jukka Kröger and Aaron Turner get together and here is the result. Interesting hardcore/Punk album. No idea about limitation (Hydra Head release), but this should be available from here and there. For example Split Cranium Bandcamp page.
Great album, great band. Is this Crust, Crustcore, D-beat, Hardcore?? Who knows and in the end even cares! I will carry this band with me till the end of my days. This record gave me strength in my deepest days and this will always be in my Top 10! Always! Available, well this should be available from every good record store around.
I bought this record about four years ago and I still like it that much I wont sell it. This is some kind of mixture hardcore and metal, maybe some punk in it. Nice disc. Limited to 1000 copies, 700 copies on black vinyl with silver splatter and 300 on silver/black vinyl. Available from Suburban Home Records.
Four years ago I bought this from their gig. Great band this totally was. Been enjoying this album ever since. Relapse pressed 1000 copies of this record; 100 on clear, 400 on white with black splatter and 500 on red vinyl with black haze. Disfear Records has bee pressing this ever since so there should be plenty of copies floating around if you don’t already have this Swedish treasure :)
This album I bought few years ago and I still use to listen now or then. Doom-stoner-rock album and this is limited to 500 copies; 300 on black vinyl, 100 copies on white (mailorder version) and 100 on rusty in special wrapping (gig version). I bought this from band and got this rusty version. Badger Records still seems to have this if you’re interested this kind of stoner rock
One of those records that came from Denovali today. Just have to admire the quality of albums they are releasing. As I have said before, I’m at that point with Denovali that I’m systematically buying nearly everything they are releasing :D and by the way, this is really good album. Limited to 200 copies on gold and 600 copies on black vinyl. Available from, Denovali.
Single from one of the best bands in Finnish music scene as I know. Radiopuhelimet has always been those Finnish bands I like. This treasure was bought from second-hand record store when I was visiting my mom (visiting home is excellent excuse to visit local second-hand stores and find some treasures like this) :)
This I ordered few years ago from Denovali. I love those pictures on the cover of the album. Seems to quite popular band if I’m not totally wrong. Nice record from inside to outside. If I remember right. total first pressing was 1000 copies, this colorway is limited to 200 copies. Repress is still available from Denovali.
And another one from Ringworm. Still sealed album, got this on my mp3 player. Record Store Day release and limited to 400 yellow copies. Easy to find, there’s nothing special on this one but I like this very much. Angry music.. aaaeeerrgghhhhh.. makes me wanna rip my ears out! P.s. I used to listen this when I was bicycling to work :D
I’m not that big fan of hardcore anymore but I have to pick this up last Record Store Day. Haven’t even opened this (still sealed) because I have this on my mp3 player. For me this was purely “must have” record, I can’t explain it :) This is white vinyl and there are 400 copies floating around, should be easy to find if you like this band.
As I am a huge fan of Finnish record label Bad Vugum, I bought this one today from second-hand record store also. This is first release of Bad Vugum and surprisingly awesome release from one of my favourite band, Radiopuhelimet! Aaaaaarrgghhh..
Aaarrrgghh.. I remember hearing this track “Bills Pays Pills” and I was sold immediately. Surprise another quality release from Denovali. Even though this is hardcore mixed with post-something elements, there is this weird twist and I just love it! Limited to 300 copies (100 copies on clear vinyl with red haze and 200 copies on black vinyl). You can purchase this (clear one) from Denovali and the prize tag ain’t that bad at all, 10€
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!
Suddenly I found myself listening this album few days ago. This record blew my mind years ago and still it has same effect. Swedish hardcore/metal/punk/whatever band and I love this album, this brought some light in the darkness back then. Haven’t heard nothing from these guys for years now.. great band, still love this album.
