  3. Dont miss our Black Friday Sale Running all weekend! www.a389records.com
  4. Hey everyone Today at noon we'll be launching preorders for the FULL OF HELL & MERZBOW Sister Fawn LP. ONE TIME PRESSING 1000x copies on Black Vinyl First 100 Copies (Ordered From A389) will come with a FREE bonus FOH cassette. www.a389records.com Euros can order from our Evil Greed webstore and save on shipping (no tapes) www.evilgreed.net Also be sure to poke around the store we found some odds and ends while cleaning up including alternate color variants of the CHOKEHOLD reissues and a small handful of NOTHING variants including the never before sold Clear Variant (Band Exclusive). These are the final copies of DYTC available before we issue the red edition in 2016. In other news the CHOKEHOLD 'Black Box' sets will be shipping at the end of October. The original demo tapes (This Whole World Is An Addiction and the split w/ Crumble) have been remastered by Audiosiege for the exclusive box-set tape and came out rad. Hope it was worth the wait. The GENOCIDE PACT Forged Through Domination LP/CD is out now and is crushing everything in it's path. Easliy the heaviest /best death metal album of 2015 in our opinion. Not like we're biased or anything . Find out for yourself with this FREE download of the album: http://a389recordings.bandcamp.com/album/forged-through-domination AND THAT'S IT FOR 2015. In case you haven't heard we're putting the brakes down and slowing things around here so that when I get out of my 9 hours at my day job I can hang out with my family / not be at another job. To make this happen, most of our scheduled releases have been adopted by other labels. The always classy RELAPSE RECORDS have taken over the new SEVEN SISTERS OF SLEEP 'Ezekiel's Hags' album (their best record hands down) as well as the ILSA / COFFINS split EP we were working on. We will be announcing the new homes for the upcoming SEX PRISONER and GOD'S AMERICA LPs shortly as well. Everything else has been pushed into 2016 to be taken care of at our own pace. We already have a couple unannounced split 7"s up at mastering that are going to blow minds for sure. Those will come out when they come out . Say it to yourself a few times...it'll stick. In the meantime BJ Rochinich from Ancient Shores put together a cool A389 PODCAST that we try to do monthly. We have two episodes available for your listening pleasure loaded with awesome / obscure tracks and interviews with Dwid Hellion (INTEGRITY) and Jeff Beckman (CHOKEHOLD / HAYMAKER / LEFT FOR DEAD) so far. You can find it on I-tunes etc or by clicking below: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-a389-podcast/id1033719310?mt=2 Other than that most of our back catalog and distro stock is discounted a few bucks to get them into your hands and get me out of that freezing warehouse before winter. Be sure to stop by and check us out: www.a389records.com Thanks D/R - A389 Recordings

  9. PS: All the new releases wil be at the bash on exclusive band colors only so that they take home the $$ that night. PPS: Glow Integ sold out in like an hour for the dude who asked
  10. No big deal/beef squashed.. Asides from the label I have to rot 9 hours a day at my day job and then find time to spend with my girls before record world eats me up. Add in the bash right now (which consumes every spare moment of my life from oct-jan and is another thing I put together/run by myself). I'm easily more butthurt than usual when someone takes a swipe at me for just doing something that I love and do my best at, that other people love too. Not to mention it may be old man syndrome kicking in but it's really starting to grind on me that everyone treats what they say on the internet as if it the person they're talking about isn't a real person. It sucks. If I didn't need it to run the label I'd be completely cut offline long ago. Juan, having an opinion is fine. Everyone has one. But trying to insult someone on one forum, taking it back and then having me find it on other forums...that exemplifies exactly what I'm talking about above. People aren't just a screen name or hashtag or whatever. But yeah there's no beef and the original offer still stands. Not as a challenge to me but a challenge to yourself. Please start a label do a fest/show or zine if you aren't happy with whats out there. That's why I did it / That's why I do it. Speaking of KISS Super underrated record.
  11. As I mentioned on Twitter in reply to Jhulud (to which he backpedalled faster than a motocross VHS tape in rewind mode) Anyone who wants to: pay for a recording/mastering, manufacture records in a limited quantity, pay for stuff like etchings or huge poster inserts, take care of license /royalty copies PR, additional general expenses + time / effort that goes into running a label of this size full time on limited time/resources and sell their records for less.... well the door is wide open my friends. You're crying over a 7" record thats $7.77 thats limited to 1000 and has an etched b-side and/or a 2XLP that was licensed from another label and comes with super nice packaging and a huge 24x36 poster that had to be manually reconstructed because the original artwork was lost. It's easy to sit in the sidelines and hate/complain. I encourage you to get in the game and try it for yourselves. Or invent a time machine that will take you back to 1988 where your pricing and logic makes sense. Dom/A389

  13. I'll trade you for that if you wanted to...I love early Lush and don't have any on vinyl
  14. The COG 7"? They're hard to find, Ive been lucky to have a few dealings with the guy who put it out and try to get as many as I can each time, they're such an amazing band. Nothing Natural how about that trade?!
