This cold spring turned a bit warmer with the arrival of 2 massive packages consisting of various music: Dead Can Dance 2xLP – “Anastasis”, Of The Wand and The Moon 10″ – “Live at the lodge of imploded love”, Rauhnacht MLP – “Waldeinsamkeit”, The Ruins Of Beverast – “Unlock The Shrine” and 5 vinyls of old – Paradise Lost – “Shades of God” and “Icon”, Darkthrone – “Total Death”, “Plaguewielder” and “Hate Them”.
The winter is still here, despite it’s 1st of April. Mountains of snow,В snowfallsВ and now rain make it all look hopeless. But no matter, russian post still works and delivers darkest material from all possible dark corners of the planet. This time it’s 3 LPs: Wrathprayer – “The Sun Of Moloch: The Sublimation Of Sulphur’s Essence Which Spawned Death And Life”, Sepulchral Temple with the album of the same name and Grave Miasma – “Exalted Emanaton”.
Finally russian post managed to deliver latest Darkthrone vinyl “Underground Resistance”. Took em month! I blame snow and cold. Anyway, fun times of listening good old metal ahead! On a side note, I was on a Swans show last week and it was a blast. One of the best shows I been on. Got their latest CD “The Seer” and managed to snatch anВ autographВ from Gira himself.
I’ve uploaded vids from the last vinyl delivery: В Revenge – Us And Them (High Power),В Revenge – Annihilate Or Serve, В Diocletian – All That Remains (Bolt Thrower cover),В Satanik Goat Ritual. Full playlist here.
After rather long period without new music, I’ve finally received interesting bunch of vinyls. Looks like I’ve got hooked by the canadian Revenge band, by its total chaos and evil. The combination of madness and processed vocals I love the most. I’ve got two albums: “Scum.Collapse.Eradication” and “Triumph.Genocide.Antichrist”. Looks like I’ll have to get the other two full lengths. Next comes miniLP of Diocletian -В “Decimator” which I thought I won’t be able to find. 7″ split of Ride Of Revenge / Meti Bhuvah. Two releases from Chalice Of Blood Angel records of proper satanic goat metal bands:В В 7″В Nuclearhammer / Sickrites – “Abomination To The Lord“В and 10″В Necroholocaust / Satanik Goat Ritual – “Rites Of Black Blood”. And finally some obscure australian experimental doom band Cauldron Black Ram – “Slubberdegullion”.
Another evil act from New Zealand has arrived – В Heresiarch MLP – “Hammer Of Intransigence”. A pity they seem have stopped all activity recently. And another nice addition to this purchase was Darkthrone’s 2LP compilation of the old stuff- “Sempiternal В Past”.
VГЎn RecordsВ still continues to drop releases on me. This time it’s mighty icelandic black metal band ГЃrstГГ°ir LГfsins вЂЋwith lavish vinyl package вЂ“ “VГЎpna LГ¦kjar Eldr” and their other LP “JГ¶tunheima DolgferГ°”. Also I’ve got The Ruins of Beverast vinyl compilation “Enchanted By Gravemould I”. And as a nice addition to this metal pack I decided to buy 2 vinyls of rather nice german neofolk band Waldteufel – “Sanguis”В and “Rauhnacht”.
Just received several records from the good german label VГЎn Records: The Devil’s Blood – “The Time Of No Time Evermore” CD, “Come, Reap” 12″ MLP, “I’ll be Your Ghost” CD, “Fire Burning” 7″. В A pity I was forced to buy CDs since no vinyls were available at the time, but oh well. I now have almost full discography of this awesome band. A real pity they decided to split week ago :( The other two releases came out of nowhere, rather nice doom metal acts I didn’t know before: Saint Ivo -”Doomestication” LP, and The Doom Cult – “A Language of Misery” CD.
I’ve finally cleaned and decorated my YouTube channel where you can find videos of rotating vinyls with selected tracks recorded from them. Enjoy!
Got package from the previous year finally. Ordering during x-mas/new year is a pain: shipment times stretch to ridiculous numbers like 40-50 days. Well, this is the fun part of living in the collector’s world isn’t it? The joy of receiving the package is what keeps it all interesting ;) В Anyway, the package contained mighty vinyls of australian Portal – “Swarth” and sri-lankian Genocide Shrines -”Devanation Monumentemples”. As an addition, I’ve got classic act of german dark ambient – Inade -”Audio Mythology One”В the other week. And thus ends the era of 2012 orders.
