As I have a turntable, I began to buy more vinyls. I lately bought three albums of Freedom Call (all of different colours), two of Sabaton, Korpiklaani and Tyr as well
That Agalloch vinyl is beautiful dude. Good score.
Last night I fucking broke my needle. God damnit.
Good thing I have my old cartridge, but fuck man...Shit sucks.
Thanks for the notice on Agalloch. I ordered it.
Also if anyone cares Amazon has for preorder Annihilation of the Wicked for $14.97 will probably be black but for the price I can deal.
Just bought this. Fuck yes.
I just like my colored vinyl. If it's album from the eighties or older it always looks good on black though.
I try to keep you guys posted on cool metal wax being released
Dude, where'd you get that Agalloch vinyl from?
Their official site. (Licht Von Dammerung)
Just ordered this one.
First pressings I own. Thought the Nocturnus copies I have were first pressings but they aren't. Not happy about that.
Had time today since it is snowing buckets and I'm unable to go anywhere:
Sorry the quality isn't great. I don't have a steady hand.
Just wondering, are scuffmarks on new vinyl anything to be worried about? They're not audible at all ... well at least to my ears.
Not sure what you mean by a scuff mark, but if the scratch isnt deep enough that the needle lifts and skips, I dont see why it would be an issue.
If its a smudge get some record cleaner and clean it off. Id recommend Wood glue. Pretty fun to peel off. Reminds me of being a kid and peeling glue off my hands after it dried.
Thought I'd upload a few pics of some of the cooler vinyl first presses I own. Bought all of these locally, and most for a mere fraction of what they're worth.
Master's Hammer - Ritual is the Osmose pressing from 1994.
Definitely not scratches, just scuffs. I've seen them on quite a few new vinyl ... maybe from the inner sleeve? Maybe its sludge, would something like an lcd cleaner/spray work? Is there any chance i can fuck my records up with the wood glue?
@MP: I've got that Brutality album on vinyl too but im not sure if it's a first pressing or not.
Im sure its not something you should be using every time you bust out your records, but when you shit gets caked on with dust/smudges etc. this works well. Ive tried, (mainly on shit IVe bought at garage sales and used record stores thats dirty as fuck) and know others have as well, with success. And if you are keeping you shit in plastic sleeves, it shouldnt be something that needs to be done that frequent, but I understand your hesitation.
There are definitely other cleaning options available. Such as washes, kits, and brushes, this is just a cost effective/cool way to clean, imo. The best care option is our own care when storing and handling.
Think you can try capturing the scuff in a photo? Because it could be just a natural part of the vinyl. Like a little color discoloration from the pressing, which could just be a natural aesthetic look that occurs and not from damage.
Cool, thanks for the advice man.
Yea ill try and see if i can catch it on camera and post a pic of it later. But definitely not natural.
this seems to be what i'm talking about ...
^ Ill check that out and get back to you.
Just saw that SoM has Drudkh's new album up for pre-order. Black and Orange marble. Broke as fuck, but had to make this one happen.
I'm thinking im going for the woodcut box cd version. Black metal isnt my favorite vinyl anyway.
Whaaaaaaa??? Its not?
What takes the cake for you? Stoner shit?
For me its Black Metal > Stoner Metal > Death Metal (mainly nasty, dirty shit) > Classic metal albums (Priest, Sabbath, Maiden etc.) > Electronic
I enjoy listening to classic albums the most on vinyl.
