    Blood Music makes some ridiculously good looking vinyl.

    Anyway, picked up a reissue of Opeth's "Orchid" album this past weekend. 2LP, 180 gram purple vinyl. Looks and sounds sweet.

    haha, I only have 20 vinyls at the moment, I plan to shoot for 5k-6k

    picture dics can sound pretty nasty, the only ones i hve are Dethklok which I never really intend to play, coloured vinyl on the other hand sounds just as good as black.

    Yob's new album Clearing The Path To Ascend is now available for pre order, along with some shirts.

    Missed the Gold mailorder that came with a sick ass slipmat and patch. But got the Silver and a shirt.

    Hopefully Relapse doesnt fuck me over again.

    So my sexy beyond creation vinyl arrived today, I could not be happier
    [​IMG]

    HOWEVER, there was a split in the centre of the top seam of the jacket which occured during shipping, the split goes most the way through to the inside but not all of the way but it leaves a really unsightly white section, does anyone know of any way i can mend this so that the white cardboard is less visible? i would be really appreciative if anyone cold let me know as I can only find instructions for repairing complete splits that go all the way through and all the way along the jacket.

    So hey Kafka (or whoever likes post metal maybe its not you lol), is Dawning by Mouth of the Architect any good? Blind bought it on vinyl because it was $11 on amazon last week (i see its went up since) because of the awesome artwork and the fact that the limited gold vinyl is the only pressing that exists :lol:

    Its nothing special.

    Im pretty picky when it comes to Post-Metal, and one of the main spoilers for me with the genre in specific is the vocals. MotA's vocalist bothers the fuck out of me, ruining any potential replay value the album couldve had because musically there were some decent moments.

    Theres better shit out there to spend your money on, imo.

    Discovered Weirdsville Records the other day and picked up Trouble's The Skull. Haven't listened yet but it looks to be in pretty good condition.

    I know record stores are kinda dying out, but I personally don't do the internet shopping thing, so when I stopped in there and saw that, as well as Sleep's Dopesmoker, I was pretty tittylated. I just think it's more fun to be pleasantly surprised by a selection than straight up search for shit I like.

    But I'll admit owning vinyl of exactly what I want does have an appeal I may address someday.

    Bongripper is repressing Miserable, and will be available to order tomorrow at 10am CDT, through their big cartel page.

    Definitely picking one of those up.

    So I've gotten the vinyl bug of late, which I am despising because I want to go back and grab a lot of the old 80s releases on vinyl now...

    I want to see if others have noticed what I have. A lot of the modern vinyl releases coming out, have outright sloppy pressings. Meaning, the center punch is not clean (which sometimes causes rips in the sticker at the punch location). I've also noticed the manufacturing on some releases' jackets are sloppily put together, often times giving off a "cheap" feel. I know a lot of labels are pressing to vinyl for the money grab - but would be nice to see a consistent quality to the pressings.

    Anyone else seeing this issue?

    I haven't noticed a pattern yet as to if it is a certain geographic area putting out the sloppier stuff - maybe someone else can enlighten me?

    I have a few where the center holes weren't big enough for the spindle ... had to file them down a little to fit. I've also got a few where the artwork is a little off. One side of one of my Warbrigner album hisses nonstop. Quality control for vinyl just isn't the same as CD's.

    Big labels (which sadly own most of the metal classics) dont really put the effort into things they should. Century Media off the top of my head releases bare bones vinyl constantly. Earache records is also an offender, while claiming their releases are full dynamic range... Metal blade's reissues are pretty lame too. For quality stuff, i recommend HHR and NWN, especially their limited editions. They go above and beyond to make fans of the music happy. 20 buck spin usually does a good job too and for a big label, nuclear blast probably puts out the best of the big metal label wax releases. (Better than the others i listed anyway)

    ^ Agreed.

    Smaller labels put more care into their product, and packaging Ive noticed. Ive got so many of my gatefolds fucked by Relapse, including a order cancellation on a pre-order that they did not even tell me about til it was too late. I want to shit in a box and mail it to those bastards.

    Sometimes, but rarely, the sticker placement is exactly perfect, but thats cool in my eyes. I like the imperfections (not including smashed gatefolds), makes your vinyl more real and more your own. They arent all made exactly the same, which makes these blemishes part of the process, which I enjoy. (As long as nothing is fucked up on the record itself).

    I will give a shoutout to RidingEasy/EasyRider Records for not only being cool dudes, but delivering a product they standby with quality. Never been disappointed with them.

    Gotcha.

    Anyone have any releases from Blood Music? They announced a Star One release I am interested in - and they seem to come off as a quality (small label) place.

    You aren't gonna get a much higher quality record than Blood Music puts out. Can't believe I forgot them. Their dedication to the music shows.
