    Seconded on Blood Music. Great attention to detail and communications. Those Star One vinyls are going to be gorgeous. Their stuff is well worth the money.

    Relapse just put out every single Nasum full length on wax. I guess the pre-order starts in January, so im stoked on that cause I was about to buy every single one, right now.

    Their color scheme is a bit weak...Especially because they arent different between the 4 albums...Whatever. Still buying each one when they come out. Been wanting this for years.

    EDIT:
    God damnit. You can only pre-order the bundle right now...All the records the same color...for $70+...Cant make up my mind and I gotta leave for a show in LA right now :(

    Music Hall 2.2S (Limited turntable on Black Ash Wood)
    - Upgraded Acrylic Platter (looks amazing, dont need a slip mat and helps improve sound and cut vibrations)
    - Went with their cartridge, Music Hall Tracker, and gonna see how I feel about it. I still have my Shure m97xe to swap out if I feel I dont like this one.

    Audioengine 5+ Bamboo Powered Speakers
    These fuckers pack a punch. Already can tell a difference in their sound only after about 5 hours of playing. Cant wait to hear them when they are fully broken in.

    The clarity of this setup is ridiculous. Going from a $20 turntable I got from K-Mart, to a Technics I barely used cause it was finicky and broken, to a $650 entry Audiophile turntable is insane.

    Still have more gear to buy, which will probably take me another year to save, but, atleast now I can enjoy my wax in fucking incredible clarity and sound.

    Picked up Uriah Heep's Demons & Wizards, Robin Trower's Bridge of Sighs, Iron Butterfly's In a Gadda Da Vida, and random baroque stuff today. Eventually I'll splurge on new records by bands I really love, because I have yet to see any used Candlemass for instance despite their popularity. But three records for 30 is better than one.

    The two stores I go to are pretty cleaned out of most metal stuff, hard to even get some Black Sabbath.

    Picked up Borknagar's "Olden Domain" in gatefold on 180 gram vinyl. Came with a poster of the album cover too. I also got the new Wolves in the Throne Room on 2LP clear vinyl. I know it's an ambient album, but I dig it pretty hard; especially when spinning the vinyl.

    Picture is misleading. It's 12 records in the set, not 6.

    And this in triple red vinyl:

    And this on red glow in the dark vinyl:

    One of these in blue:

    And some various non-metal things like the new Pink Floyd, Tom Petty, and a few vinyls from Gravenhurst.

    This thread has been pretty dead lately. Kinda weak. I know you fuckers have gotten some new shit, post about it!

    Just picked up a God Luck & Good Speed reissue from Season of Mist. Only $23 shipped. Pretty stoked on that.
