And once again it has been way too long since I have updated this blog.. It does not mean that I have given up, it’s mainly because I don’t have that much time nowadays.. But let’s start with this cassette that arrived today. Ungraven.. waited for this to arrive so freaking long that I almost gave up but here it is. And if you didn’t already know, this industrial-blackened-heavy-sludge release has something to with Jon Davis (Conan).. Holy hell, I […]
Yeah.. When this one was available I waited too long with my decision and suddenly it was sold out. In the end the main reason for skipping was those sadistic shipping costs. For few weeks I listened this latest from The Necromancers via BandCamp and I knew that I must get my hands on this someway or another. Now it’s here. Bought this from some Discogs seller and paid about 10 euros more than it would have cost (with shipping) […]
Here’s some finnish black/pagan/folk metal to your ears. Few weeks ago I got a copy of this record and somehow managed to destroy the cover completely (okay, there was this tiny bump on one corner of the cover and i tried to fix it..) so I had to order another copy. And here it is now, Havukruunu’s debut album “Havulinnaan” on deep black vinyl (limited only to 200 copies). This is black metal album seasoned with some pagan/folk/traditional heavy metal. I […]
Yes, got this from Totem Cat Records few days ago and ain’t this freaking awesome piece of a vinyl. Old school heavy/doom metal (street-doom as band defines its music) and I really enjoy that raw soundcape on this debut album of theirs. Sweaty street-doom for sweaty metalheads. Album came out via Totem Cat Records and I managed to grab this most limited version on clear vinyl with Death Certificate my name on it. This edition is limited to 50 copies […]
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 […]
Damn.. When this band was active I was more interested of playing with Lego bricks than listening any music at all. Strange thing is that I never came across the name of this band at my teenager years which were filled with metal music (any kind of metal, from heavy to doom and so on..). Anyways, better later than ever. These three records are heavy metal at it’s best and thanks to OMGvinyl for bringing this band to my knowledge. […]
This deluxe box set arrived yesterday. Hard rocking stoner/doom/heavy album this surely is, and I’m quite satisfied with this one (well, more than quite). Got tipped about this album from few different websites and I could not pass this after listening few tracks. This deluxe edition with red splattered black vinyl is limited to 75 copies, of course there was this more regular edition limited to 125 copies on orange translucent vinyl. At this moment both of these versions are […]
As we all know this is that “MYSTERY 2” record released by Blood Music. My copy came today and I ordered this one immediately when I realize who this mystery artist is (I ordered that “MYSTERY 1” long before this one). For me this was one of those “must buy” items. Now my Cloudkicker collection is nearly complete (talking about releases on vinyl). Nice one and I’m glad that I ordered this album from this multi talented artist. Oh, and as […]
This twelve-inch came today from Brutal Panda Records. Once again this record is one of those I suddenly found while looking for treasures from BandCamp. And what a treasure this certainly is. Progressive metal/heavy and very, very energetic and now I’m just waiting for their full length if there is one coming. I really like this one, little different from what I usually listen but that’s just positive thing! And I really dig the cover art, awesome. This is limited […]
Managed to get this re-press and now I do not have to pay those huge prizes they are asking from the original copies on Ebay or Discogs. In my opinion this album is not that bad as some may say. “Black Star” is one of my favourite songs. There are still copies on Earache’s webstore to pick. So what are you waiting for?
I went out to local record store for the latest album of Oranssi Pazuzu.. Well, they did not have that and on my way out of the store my eyes spotted this one.. Pristine copy and no excuse to leave this one there. Even though I haven’t been listening Danzig for years now, I had to buy this. Maybe I have to pay a visit to that store more often (last summer I found few copies of Mark Lanegan’s earlier […]
Hmm.. I remember those days when Pantera’s Cowboys From Hell came out, loved and still love that album. Pantera was one of my favorite bands those days, then I grew up and turned boring. And I have to admit that I missed Down totally.. Then Season Of Mist announced this one. There seems to be lot of color variations of this record because it’s released by Season Of Mist and Housecore Records. Well, this is Season Of Mist release, limited […]
Finally I got this one, missed this when it was released (by Blood Music) but now I hold this on my tiny, hairy hands. Love this album so much, even though I’m not a fan of Emperor. This was limited to 300 copies (100 copies on black and 200 copies on white vinyl). Sold out long long time ago. You might find this from Discogs/Ebay but be ready to pay great pile of coins if you would like to have […]
I actually bought this from a physical record store today :) This one have been on my “wanted-list” for some time and now I finally bought this. Not bad at all. Nice record in my opinion. This is limited to 500 copies and if you’re after this, Discogs is place to go.
And little avant-garde-jazz-industrial-metal-noise for the people. I have known this band for ages but this is the first record I have bought from their catalogue. Now I know what I have missed. Wonderful record for those who can walk their ears and eyes open. Love. If I’m not totally wrong, this orange version is limited to 100 copies, and of course there is regular black version available. Both versions seems to be available from Prosthetic Records.
And this also came today. “Deluxe double vinyl”, 150 pressed with exclusive hand-grafted silkscreen print and CD version of the album. I pre-ordered this from Season Of Mist and this is sold out but they still have some other versions available. Something about limitation of this record: 150 deluxe copies, 200 copies clear with yellow and green splatter, 500 copies on transparent red and 500 copies on black vinyl. And I think there is plenty of others color versions floating […]
Maybe the ugliest album cover I have seen for a long time (this is purely my opinion..). But what comes to the music, good old-time heavy metal with doom elements. Great album indeed. Got this copy from the friend of mine so I don’t know if purple version is still available but Svart Records seems to have silver and black copies. p.s. This can be found from Northern Silence Productions (purple colored vinyl, limited to 200 copies).
Pre-ordered this one. At that point it was limited to 500 copies on black vinyl and month later there was 500 copies more released on white vinyl. Anyways, have to say that I liked their debut album little better (debut is re-pressed and available again from Prophecy). So what? This is beautiful album, full of heart and soul. White version still available from Prophecy. Recommended.
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!!
Postman brought this today. I bought this from Discogs and got it quite reasonable prize. I remember hearing this when this was released.. didn’t like it back then. Well, now I like and thanks to their latest album “Into The Lair Of The Sun God”. This album is limited to 100 copies on brown swirled and 400 copies on black vinyl. I do not know about availability but surely you can purchase this from Discogs / Ebay.
Damn I love this album! Bought this from my local records store so this is from second pressing, so what! I liked the album and still do. This is available at every good record store and I think that Deathwish makes sure that there will be re-presses!
aarrrrrgghhhh.. What is happening to me? I’m starting to like black metal more and more nowadays.. Well, these bands are not that black, more like just metal. And this one is yet again, awesome! Limited too 600 copies (100 on green marbled and 500 on black vinyl). Available from Profound Lore.
And here this is, do not know is this from second or third pressing but I do not really care. As far as I know, this color edition is 750 copies. Original pressings from this band are in ridiculous prizes so I’m satisfied with this. Good album and the cover art from Baizley is amazing as always. This one you could find easily from good record stores.
Xysma was pioneer of Finnish grindcore and death metal. Svart Records released this album (released 1993 on cd format) first time on vinyl in 2010. Xysma started as a grindcore/death metal band, transformed to Death and Roll just to move to Retro Rock. Excellent example of band that did not stuck but adapted its whole existence. There are 300 copies on clear and 300 copies on black vinyl. Clear version available from Floga Records (few copies left).
