My recent vinyl acqusitions:

Celtic Frost - Demon Entrails
Mayhem - Ordo Ad Chao
Entombed - Serpent Saints
Arch Enemy - Rise Of The Tyrant
Machine Head - The Blackening
Darkthrone - FOAD
Behemoth - The Apostasy
Obituary - Xecutioner's Return
Disfear - Live The Storm
Evile - Enter The Grave

Out of that lot the Mayhem album has to be the most twisted thing I've heard in over a decade. Yes it's inconsistent, has a terrible production and borders on the unlistenable at times but...it's so damn twisted! I can't stop listening to it! For all it's gaping flaws that should mark it as an unmittigated disaster, it's somehow a masterpiece for exactly those reasons. Probably the bravest album released by any band for some considerable time.

Saw them live at Nottingham Rock city - I have never heard a vocal performance like that in a very long time. They were real special, almost possessed. Only got 70 odd minutes because the place turns into some love shack horror at 10.30, but they did themselves proud. If I get the opportunity to see them again I most certainly will.

DAMN HEX!!!!
thats a helluva load of great music.

As for the new DEATH ANGEL, well, I'd say it's nothing short of GOD-LIKE!!!! but I'm a bit partial and have loved everything they have realeased. This is as good as anything from their past catalog.

Yeah, the new Death Angel is some great thrash. It took me a couple of listens to sink in, but it didn't take long to put the hooks in me.

In the mail, I got Agalloch's "The White EP" on CD which is really nice. Very mellow, but good quality stuff. Going to see them here in Seattle this coming Friday and very much looking forward to it.

With my wife working this last Sunday, I decided to take my 4-year old son with me to the Seattle record show. This of course was not very condusive to digging through box after box of sweet musty vinyl, but I did have some immediate finds before heading off to spend the afternoon doing more fun things such as going on the merry-go-round, & getting ice cream and such. ;-)

The vinyl:
- GBH: City Baby's Revenge
- Eloy: Power And The Passion (gatefold)
- Eloy: Dawn
- Eloy: Planets (gatefold - I am on a big Eloy kick lately, in case you haven't noticed, haha)
- The Rods: s/t
- The Rods: Let Them Eat Metal (found these both for $3 each!)
- Arthur Brown: The Crazy World Of... (always thought I owned this until recently discivering I didn't. Pretty much a required purchase)

Steve Vai - Alien Love Secrets DVD (my fave Vai cd, so this should be cool)

Between the Buried and Me - whatever the new slab of crap is titled. I had read great reviews on this and how incredible the production is... guess what? THE VOCALS BLOW FUCKIN CHUNKS AND IT'S GETTING RETURNED!!! I'll trade it back for the new Satriani when it comes out next Tuesday, or basically anything else.


FUCK!!!! Stopped at the store tonight since I was in the area, and since they got bought out by a corporation, they no longer take back returns if you don't like it, like they used to do for club members... Fuckin Corporations!!!! live and learn. for now on I'm going to damn well know what I'm buying before i hand over the $$$

Haven't posted in here in a while! So recently I was at the recieving end of an apparantly HUGE computer malfunction that the BMG Club encountered. I went on there to cancel one of my 4 accounts (haha), and noticed they had a 2/3 off all CD's and if you bought 4 or more, there would be free shipping. So I was like, cool, let's see what they got. Somehow I ended up in the boxed set section, which I never go, and noticed that the deal applied to those as well (which it really wasn't supposed to, they specifically say it only applies to single and double CD untis). So I'm lookin at what they have, and THEN I realize their internal price calculator is knocking off 2/3 of the already discounted price. I could not fuckin believe it! Of course it wasn't supposed to, so I scrambled to find as many boxed sets as I like to made the order before they found out this problem and corrected it. It was like being high on crack, I swear (uhh, yeah). So I was able to order:

The Who (4 cd's)
Allman Brothers Band (4)
ZZ Top (4)
Scorpions (3)
The Doors complete Studio (7) $22
Bowie (4)
Sublime (4)
The Cure (4)
Faces (4)
Steve Miller Band (3)

How much did I pay for all of this? $120. I shit you not. Free shiping on ALLL of it. So a few days later they realized they had fucked up and cancelled some of my other orders, I had Zep and the Police, Hank Williams, they flat out lied to me and said they didn't carry them any more, scrambling to make up for their mistake. But the damage had already been done, I ripped the system

Well I'm gainfully employed again so I splurged a little bit on some actual cds. Over the last month I got:

Finntroll - Ur Jordens Djup (actually found this at FYE at the mall)
Tarot - Crows Fly Black
Tarot - Suffer Our Pleasures
Tarot - For the Glory of Nothing
Tarot - Stigmata
Tarot - To Live Forever

Tarot is old skool Finnish metal. I'm working my way backwards to their oldest albums.

--------------------

ummm.....I got nothin' today :-(

Wow Nuc, what a great steal, er, deal. That price on The Doors box is downright thievery, heheh.

Just in from Galy Records...
Dead Brain Cells!
- Dead Brains Cells
- Universe
- Unreleased

Finally able to discard my CDR copies after all these years. The reissues are very nice and Galy Records hooks you up with the fat pack of extras, including posters, stickers, a promo CD, etc.

Came accross a used copy of Venom's "Metal Black" for $7 the other day. Why did I purchase this, I don't really know? Cronos still sounds great, but this album is such a mess otherwise, haha.

NUC!!!!! That is FUCKIN SWEET!!!!!
I love BMG, and their prices on box sets is already incredible, but that was off the hook.
I picked out 9 cds I didn't have (believe it or not) during their 80% off sale the other day. Hard to pass up cds when you only pay around $6 each with shipping. 9 cds for around $62... can't beat it.
Here's what I scoopped up:
The Mars Volta- Amputechture
Jethro Tull - The Best Of Acoustic
Filter - Short Bus
Deftones - Saturday Night Wrist
Deftones - Around The Fur
Deftones - White Pony
Deftones- Deftones
Stone Temple Pilots- Thank You (1 CD/1 DVD)
Filter - The Amalgamut

Ministry - Cover Up (i'd have rather heard an album of original for their last hurah, but this is kinda cool. I'll consider "the last sucker" their 'real' last release, and this is a bonus)

Dream Theater - Greatest Hit ... and 21 other pretty cool songs (wasn't going to buy this but walmart had it for only $15, so what the fuck)

Not really a CD, but something that looks like a real worthy acquisition: Tom Warrior's "Are You Morbid?".

--------------------

"Forty-five moments of perfection translated through a cautionary escape into the perils of the mundane, the inherent entropy in ultimate order, and the potential threats of eternal, unchecked apathy in civilization; all cloaked in musical expression so thoughtful, creative and forward thinking that almost a quarter-century later, few can even comprehend it, much less match it."

Oh yes, it certainly is! Very out of print right now as well. Nice find.

Some local finds today on my lunch break...

- Burning Witch: Crippled Lucifer (2008 2-CD reissue)
- Necrophagist: Onset Of Putrifucation (reissue/remaster - needed this for some time now, sounds great!)
- Meshuggah: obZen (Too bloody? The most disturbing thing about the artwork to me was the size of that guy's nipple )

I bought that too. I have it for 5 years or so. But I never read it properly. Too damn difficult for someone who knows a little english. Enough to chat properly!!

The book arrived yesterday and I started to read it last night. Great stuff and it's sad to actually know the things they went through during the recording of "Into The Pandemonium".
