    Wow what a story, a guy lost 1,600 records while moving, if that ever happened to me many people would die http://www.theguardian.com/theobserver/2012/apr/22/vinyl-records-lost-ed-vulliamy

    well, My first 2 records ever have finally arrived

    1) 2LP Turisas - Stand Up And Fight
    2) 2LP Equilibrium - Sagas (Ltd. #566/1000)

    Both are black so nothing too special to see inside

    I have 9 more on the way :)

    So I bought a copy of Conan - Monnos from the French season of mist store a while back. (Ended up being like $28 total) It ended up being the mega rare gold marble version, limited to 100, the most expensive copy sold on discogs went for $89+ship!!! Will post pictures of it sometime.

    Woods of Ypres second album, "Pursuit of the Sun and the Allure of the Earth" album is being reissued on vinyl through Earache. I fucking LOVE this album. Just pre-ordered the rarest color.

    Get it here

    Well I see Metal Blade has released the second part of that Cattle Decapitation set. Humanure for 26.99. It's a double lp and the only music on the second lp is the outro. :lol: man they never cease to amaze. Two albums in, if you bought the stupid box, youve paid $20+10+27+shipping. I paid less than $100 for my DSO boxset direct from a distro, mind you.

    More and more I feel like Metal Blade is just become a shit label. Not the bands on them necessarily, but just the people running it.

    Just ordered Woods of Desolation's newest on a purple/pink vinyl. Interesting color, but it was the most rare copy available. Gold wouldve been sick, but it was long sold out. Stoked for this one.

    Hey guys, got my second shipment! here they are:

    Soilwork - The Living Infinite (Clear/Gold splatter)
    [​IMG]

    Wintersun - Time I (White/Black Marble) 2013 Re-issue Ltd to 250
    [​IMG]

    Wintersun - Wintersun (White/Blue Marble) 2013 Re-issue Ltd to 250
    [​IMG]

    I have heard problems with some marble reissue vinyls using old wax offcuts or something and not sounding as good, is this actually true?

    Carcass - Surgical Steel (Clear/Black Splatter) Ltd 750
    [​IMG]

    It is not really a rare colour but I chose it as I like to have the vinyl colour match the sleeve colour. The green was more limited with only 100 copies but couldnt stand the thought of a green flouro vinyl in a silver sleeve does anyone else do this?

    I also have a bit of a problem with bands like this, they release 50 different colours to different labels and limit each colour to something like 200 or so, that means you end up with a thousands and thousands of "limited edition" vinyls if you count them all together, it really kind of defeats the purpose of limited edition.


    Also ordered some others that haven't arrived

    Metalocalypse Dethklok - Dethalbum I, II and III (Etched and picture vinyls) and Enslaved - Riitiir (bone/charcoal Splatter)I'm sure you all know what those looks like

    Kalmah - The Black Waltz (Black/white swirl) Ltd to 200
    [​IMG]

    Beyond Creation - The Aura (Green/white Swirl) Ltd to 250
    [​IMG]

    I just missed out on preorders for these last 2 but i was lucky and found only one of each for resale, I picked them up faster then you could drop a hot pan (even though they cost 2x the original price :bah: )

    Inferi - The Path of the Apotheosis (Brimstone/Fire (Orange/black) Splatter) Ltd to 100 and they are all autographed!
    [​IMG]

    If you like techdeath metal I would suggest you get in really quick and get this, they said they'll never reissue them, it's an absolutely breathtaking album. not very well known band and very underrated

    Also I'm looking for "Ne Obliviscaris - Portal of I" vinyl in colour I'm willing to pay a lot for this and I've searched everywhere for it for a and they sold out a long time ago.

    Does anyone know of any place I might be able to obtain one?

    that's what I thought, thanks

    Wow, that limited? I feel so lucky to have Kalmah and Beyond Creation. If anyone wants my copy they'll have to pry it from my cold dead hands :)

    Also seeing what you said about the Cattle Decapition box set I'm actually real glad I didn't bother to get it.

    Really enjoying my turntable! Thanks Matt for the recommendation of AudioTechnica. Still awaiting speakers and amp, but put this together last week and been digging into the vinyl i've been sitting on for awhile, which includes Dawnbringer, Earthless/Heavy Blanket split, and Agalloch (just got that one) and just ordered a few more. My setup is pretty terrible right now but here's the best i could do for now:


    Now i know this is probably a no-no, but couldn't wait any longer

    and only because am totally in love with this album art.

    I dig the setup :)

    Also, I need to check into that Earthless split. Never seen it or heard about it.

    Thanks man! :kickass:

    Dude that split is awesome. It takes two guys from Earthless and two guys from Heavy Blanket and its this awesome jam session. Wanted the purple limited edition but couldn't order it fast enough, but this one is still pretty sweet and it's yellow and my first colored vinyl.

    I go for black and avoid picture discs these days, because it sounds better. I still like my Awaken the Guardian picture disc because of the novelty. It doesn't sound too bad anyway. Having said all that, I don't really buy physical music anymore. Can't justify it. If I get a better job I might start collecting vinyl again though.

    yeah, I have nearly 800 records and a couple hundred CDs. I am finding difficulty listening to everything that I have acquired.

    So I am going on hiatus for buying vinyl. I have two items preordered and those will be it for a while.

    I really would like to shoot for a year without buying any music and see what happens. A chance to dig into what I already own.
