    Hum - Downward is Heavenward Reissue

    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.

    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.

    Vinyl Blogs

    Derek is right, though. This forum has proven to be the most diverse and up-to-date source for news on vinyl due to the community-driven format. Most of the vinyl blogs I once read/followed have gone inactive. This guy here from Germany (it's in English though!) is doing a pretty good job, mostly on hardcore/metal stuff with lots of nice informative photos (not that poser kind): rather few new releases, but many personal recommendations that are always worth taking a listen.
  6. Release date: Nov 30th "Wire Love are a new band from Münster that has risen from the ashes of Orbit the Earth. Their debut LP “Leave the Bones” is nothing short of a giant leap in intensity for German Post-Hardcore. Pummeling groove is combined with just the right amount of technicality here, resulting in a high-pressure aural experience not unlike the best moments of bands such as the almighty Botch or These Arms Are Snakes. This impression is supported by the massive production: recorded at the Tonmeisterei in Oldenburg this LP provides what is arguably one of the most powerful and massive eardrum assaults you have witnessed all year. But fear not, because Wirelove manage to balance all this madness with really thought-out song structures that leave enough room for great atmospheres to build up. FFO: These Arms Are Snakes, Botch, Converge, Post-Hardcore and awesome production." Pressing info: 100x milky clear w/ brown splatter, 400x black/milky clear split Pre-order here: https://thischarmingmanrecords.de/produkt/wire-love-leave-the-bones-lp-digital/ (cheap international shipping available!)

    [PO] Nothing - Dance On the Blacktop

    can't unpack the archive using WinRAR (which usually works flawlessly for this file format). Anyone else having problems?

    [PO] Nothing - Dance On the Blacktop

    new single "The Carpenter's Son" is up on all streaming services. Awesome song, but that's old news for all them 1337 hax0rs in this thread who've been familiar for a couple weeks now anyway.

    ISIS The Red Sea Preorder NOW

    maybe "flipping" is not the right word. I believe it's a reaction to the fact that loads of stuff is just bought to flip. By raising the prices for more limited stuff potential aftermarket flippers have to chip in a bit more themselves in the first place, which may or may not put at least some of the off. I also see the point though that the increase in price will just be forwarded to the aftermarket anyway ("this release has been more expensive from the start!"). It's a difficult topic but I believe when done with some minor markups on really limited stuff it's alright. And nope, Relapse charging $10 (or 10€ :D) more is not considered minor.

    DEAFHEAVEN - Ordinary Corrupt Human Love

    Interesting thought. Probably, with that song at the end - and especially with that phenomenal final climax on the lead guitar - this one could have brought the album to a 'Pecan Tree' tier conclusion. I'll keep on digging the song and its placement anyway, as its triumphant tone kind of sets the mood just right. Also, this album still keeps getting better and better. Couldn't help but spin it a handful of times today only.

    [PO] Nothing - Dance On the Blacktop

    Tired of Tomorrow was produced and written in a way that was supposed to make it as ethereal as possible - this new release seems to be the antithesis to that approach. The whole instrumental and vocal delivery is a lot more relentless now, you can basically imagine them thinking "fuck it, let's just do it this way" while recording. To everyone that does not want to listen: if you hated Zero Day, that is not going to be the only moment on the album that will put you off at first. I am confident though that it will sink in with most people, and there's probably not many bands that could pull it off like this.
