  1. couldn't help but succumb to the urge to watch the "user feedback" youtube vids on their homepage. This shit is heftier than what VNYL pulled off... the lady from the first clip is pretending to lose it over a colored record: "Are you kidding me? It is a blue record. I literally have no words." Then again, if I think about it it's just Relapse's basic recent sales strategy in a nutshell.
  2. @lexicondevil Bummer that your experience with Slow Crush wasn't cool! From my experience (shared the stage with them twice here in Europe) they are some of the most cheerful and friendly people you could ask for on a show! When we played their hometown in Belgium Isa's (the singer's) mom even cooked food for everyone. But I guess everyone has a bad day (or bad stage sound, for that matter) once in a while. I also can't imagine he really said "fuck him!" - are you sure about that? Remember that they will most likely speak Belgian among each other, and while I'm not familiar with that language I can think of some instances where one could simply mishear something, especially in the dense/loud environment that is a music venue. Glad you still had a good evening!
  3. just chiming in here to say that - without questioning the integrity of your source - this would be really stupid from an economic point of view. If the label notices a series of defects from the plant it will most likely insist on getting replacements before any financial risk is taken. The approach you describe shifts ALL of the financial risk onto Holy Roar without any necessity whatsoever - it just doesn't seem plausible that they would do that. The only consequence of getting replacements would be that the release/shipment has to be pushed back a bit - while that is never cool for any party, what company would risk thousands of dollars just to avoid that?
  4. @holyvacantsholyhell I totally get your point, and I'm not even against "short" releases. Guess it's rather the insane levels of gimmickiness this release entails They don't even let you choose which title you get, so you will have to either spent the max amount on the spot or remain with something which has few purposes aside from being a gimmick that's fun to display. Well, or you just make good coin from it in the aftermarket, but that's where my understanding for RSD stops entirely. I sure do hope that you will get the one(s) you desire, it will be interesting to see how the turntable works out too.
  5. I thought this was a joke until I saw the Epitaph RSD listing... this is getting out of hand.
  6. Amazon UK didnt get back to me after I had a chat conversation with them about it a couple weeks back. Now I just ordered it from a German retailer vor 22€ which is still alright for a double LP. The original album is already super good, so I'll be stoked to spin the acoustic one as well.
  7. Available for pre-order soon on The Essence (https://theessence.bigcartel.com) Debut LP from Mannheim, Germany's forefront hardcore outfit Spirit Crusher. FFO: 90s HC in the vein of Cro-Mags and Leeway, but with a modern edge and insane dynamics more akin to bands like Fiddlehead. Check out the promo tape here https://spiritcrusherxxx.bandcamp.com/ Amazing video for "Potential in Kindness":
  8. Where did you guys write to? I can't find any proper customer service address on the UK page. If it still comes down to slightly more than the original price (after credit) I'd still gladly reorder. This album is too good.
  9. Same for me just now. It's now listed for 17,99 pound instead. Booooo.
  10. not interested in this myself very much, but I remember reading at some point on his IG that there were plenty copies available so if you want one, you'd get one without much hassle. Probably there won't be any need to F5 your way through thursday.
  11. god damn Holy Roar keep killing it with the variants for this album.
  12. my band Shun just put out this new single, it's a cover of Drake's Hold On We're Going Home. The video was filmed on our recent Spain tour. it will be available for free download on our bandcamp page very soon. So long you can check out our debut EP that was released earlier this year, there is a handful tapes left from the original run of 100 pieces: https://shunthisband.bandcamp.com/album/nothing-quite-as-heavy Thanks.
