  1. RIP my boot's. Should have (and did) know better though, so not like I deserve any sympathy. But really did think the chances of this repress were basically zero. Just glad to finally own a legit copy!! My number one white whale for AGES!
  2. Also, ill use that as a shameless excuse to post my P1 collection. (Still need to do new photos with the 2021 repress) BLUE/WHITE for the win!
  3. Yeah I feel that, hope some of the ice splatters are heavier. But..... I sort of saw this coming? Or just went with my gut lets say, and did the retail copy. I just feel like BLUE/WHITE is the most iconic and classic periphery color combo. And I must say, pleased! All of that said, maybe the least excited about a Periphery album I have ever been based on the singles.... I think they are at their best when they are getting melodic and groovy, never been as big a fan of their mega heavy stuff. So hope the album skews a bit more melodic than the singles have.
  4. I guess ill be 'that guy' and say this hobby has gotten too damn expensive! $55 shipped yikesssssssssssssss Still hype on the album, latest single finally got me in on a PO. Loving the heavier edge on some of these tracks.
  5. Still super happy with my OG pressing. Love the new recordings but don't think I like them better than the original. They are great in their own way, but not how I know/connect with the songs. Will say having guest features on there is a really neat and cool take.
  6. For anyone hunting around, starting to see the Blue/White Splat pre orders going live at Amazon, and indies. Money to tight to be doing lots of European imports these days... but I think the solid purple may be my favorite TBH
  7. Going to wait until I can hear the album, love the band but the last full length was kind of forgettable.
  8. Suprised how fast these sold through, but maybe I shouldn't be. Within 12 hours the S/T was already gonzo
  9. Feeling burn't out on standard, often grainy/weak splats myself. But, blob in clear is goated' for sure At the moment I think my favorite variant style is the blob/color in clear w/ splat!
  10. I really wanted to nab a nebula, I think they have done a great job on all of the represses over the last two years.... BUT..... yeah at ~$50 im just going to stick with my first pressing. RIP. Still love those guys glad they are making a $$$, its just not for me.
  11. So hype on this dark-mode. Can we just rename the thread and gush about how nice it is? Happy 2023!
  12. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh shit!!!!!!!!!! I hope none of these sold out during the early-ordering window. Got my alerts set and HYPE AF to get my hands on these new tunes!
  13. Pretty short and not 100% winners, but overall enjoy the EP and think they clearly still have that special sauce if they wanted to do a full length. Also, the variant photo above doesn't do the smoke justice. Crazy good looking in person. Not my copy but this shows it closer to reality IMO.
  14. Ill be controversial here. After *actually* going and listening to all of their discography again.... Lead Sails is their best album. Solid from front to back with crazy earworm hooks and even killer breakdowns. When it came out it was a big letdown for me, as a huge Curse/Suicide era fan. But in retrospect it holds up way beter. Lead Sails Deathgrip Curse Congregation Suicide .... and yeah that new stuff, lets ignore that.
  15. So... weird time to have this thread show up, but what the hell. TLDR is that due to some life changes, I recently had to downsize my belongings and my space considerably. Used to have twice the record storage space, but what can you do. 💩 Here is what I was able to keep, one chonky Kallax that is full to the point of being mildly unusable. The two boxes I pulled out are all items that are either duplicates (aka wont get spun much) or are for-sale items. Speakers are across the room, so not pictured. (P.S. yall have some awesome setups, cool to see!)
  16. Finally got my copy in.... DANG this thing sounds good. A few pops here and there but otherwise almost zero on the noise floor. I think the sort of 'dirty grimy' master on a lot of the tracks really makes the clean quiet moments stand out that much more. Yeah anyways, liking the album more and more with time.
  17. FWIW, looked into this a few years ago and short story is read the fine print if you have a renters insurance policy. The way many work is your '$100k' in total coverage or whatever is actually split out into buckets by type of property, each of which have per-bucket maximum payouts regardless if your overall policy amount. When I looked into actually covering the full value of my collection (median) it was going to be expensive AF. Like 8% of the total value of.the collection annually. So I'm kinda just going with what I get via renters. But it's certainly far from full coverage.
  18. I got like two sentences in and was like 'nah im good'. But I wasn't even aware they had brought Tillian back on-board. Honestly didn't follow or bother to ingest like any of the details with this whole scandal. But even just musically I am kind of over DGD at this point. Not to mention this nonsense. Only thing that would probably get me excited to listen to new material would be if they brought Kurt back, or hell even Jonny tbh but we all know that's never happening.
  19. At this point, I have learned (many time the hard way) if you want something, just start checking any potentially relevant merch stores 15m before its supposed to go live. Got my silver copy at 10 till the hour with no issues. (wipes sweat off forehead)
  20. Holla VC fam far and wide. **Update, the show got cancelled on saturday, bummer! So as a result, no insider info from me, and no chance to grab any merch. Sorry yall! Was going to update this sooner but was off chasing pop-up shows and the like instead I will be at "WWWYF" in Las Vegas this weekend, and it seems inevitable that there will be some either exclusive or elusive vinyl to be had. I figured I (and anyone else attending) can drop info in here regarding what is for sale, and *attempt* to get things for folks who can't attend. List of 'hot' merch, Ill keep this updated. Saosin - Translating the Name EP [Silver x/1000 ?] (Tour / Live Exclusive) Saosin - Translating the Name EP [Blue x/1000 ?] (Tour / Live Exclusive) ... ... Speaking of attending, my buddy had to drop off the trip, and it made me realize it could be a fun opportunity to meet some folks IRL. So if you are going shoot me a DM! I will be in Vegas the entire weekend but am attending the show on Saturday.
  21. Yeah I have to say, I think this was up there in my top 5 list of "longest time waited for something to show up after ordering" But, both Pink Lemonade & Pennance arrived and are fantastic! I also grabbed a copy of the Temple repress for a friend, and I think that new one with the dark cover is the best version of that LP. Rad.
