  1. I remember seeing news that the vinyl was delayed to October. But there are copies now starting to appear on Discogs. Anyone know which versions are delayed? Enjoying the album so far. It really has some of the same feeling that Colors 1 had. Nice to see them going back to more metallic sound.
  2. Anssi Kippo mastered those Svart releases. He is a cool dude, loves analog sound and hates everything digital . He has hosted lectures here in Finland how analog sound is superior to digital. I bet he did a great job with the mastering! I think Mika mastered Isis "Panopticon" and "Oceanic" remasters and he made them a bit too clean and honestly a bit boring. But every release is different and those Nesi COB masters could be great.
  3. I can confim that TNO pressing sounds absolutely amazing. I have the 2nd pressing clear variant, got it at used records store here in Finland for a good price. It really has all the brutality and soul that was missing in the remaster. Edit: I would say that the TNO pressing pulls you in and you don't want to stop listening. While the 2014 remaster feels like background elevator music. I also had the Shades Of The Swarm box (sold it...). Did not quite like Oceanic in that box. Felt a bit compressed and almost like it was sourced from digital files. But I'm no expert, som
  4. Daaamn... I actually just sold my 2014 remasters because I tought these would sound different. Haha... Feel a bit stupid now :D.
  5. If this is any help, this Danish store has the 1700 variants and cheap EU shipping: https://imusic.dk/music/0689230023319/isis-2021-panopticon-lp Hopefully someone shares info about the new mastering and why they decided to remaster these again.
  6. Remastered and cut by Matt Colton? So this is NOT the 2014 remaster? Hmm... Ordered to Finland (rip bank account). Listened the Oceanic 2014 remaster after long time today, and still it sounds way too clean and polished for my taste. Felt like all the brutality was gone.. Panopticon 2014 remaster was much better :).
  7. I really like the quality of TLR vinyl, but am I the only one who would like more simpler vinyl designs? Not a huge fan of pinwheeled splatters with million different colors :D. Relapse does that too with almost all their releases.
  8. The band teased on Facebook that they are going to announce something Oceanic and Panopticon related next week. Pre-orders? Not sure if I need another copies of the remasters, but if these for some reason would be the original masters then it would be a must buy.
  9. DVNE - Etemen Ænka bandcamp exclusive limited to 200 white with black dust splatter: https://songs-of-arrakis.bandcamp.com/album/etemen-nka If you still don't have this masterpiece, now is a great change!
  10. Luckily that EU variant is really good looking so it was an easy buy. Hopefully this is return to more metallic sound...
  11. Looks like the Relapse /248 variant turned out very different than the mock up. There is a picture at Discogs. Haha... Hopefully my copy arrives next week. Caaaan't wait.
  12. Wayfarer - A Romance With Violence repress: https://profoundlorerecords.merchtable.com/music/wayfarer-a-romance-with-violence-vinyl-lp-repress https://profoundlorerecords.eu/ Maybe last years best album.
  13. I remember that previous Trna album had some interest here, so this probably needs new topic. Three variants + black: https://candlelightrecords.tmstor.es/products/section/Trna Went with the transparent grey, looks awesome (and was €47.81 shipped to Finland... don't like these prices ). Really impressed with this new song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfNOvg9ETUo The vocals fit the music very well. Too bad it's only this one song and the rest are instrumental again.
  14. Evil Greed store also has almost all the albums (Mass IIII is sold out) + many more interesting releases. https://evilgreed.net/search?page=2&type=product&q=amenra
  15. Post-metal/melodic death masterpiece "Ghost Brigade - Isolation Songs" available again after being sold out for years: https://shop.season-of-mist.com/ghost-brigade-isolation-songs-double-lp-gatefold-coloured Been waiting for this so long!
