  1. Just checked the website of the Dutch postal service for you. Tracked shipping to the US is indeed close to €30. €32 for signed delivery, including tracking and insurance. Without tracking it seems to be much cheaper, about €11.
  2. Seems to be a repress: half blue/half white. Haven’t ordered it myself yet. While I like the songs a lot, something about slapping 7 minutes worth of music onto a 12” and charging close to €20 for it rubs me the wrong way.
  3. Hi Wouter, I’ll provide you with at least one serious answer here, since I don’t think you’re trolling. I for one would definitely be interested in that (and willing to pay a bit more too).
  4. Yeah the EU store has been gone for a while now. If it’s any consolation to you, shipping from the States isn’t more expensive than shipping from the EU was. EU shipping costs were €11 for me (very high since they shipped from the country where I live), vs $10 and some change now. Only hope I won’t be hit with import duties later on..
  5. While I wasn’t the biggest fan of the first two songs that were released, I’m digging “False Prophets” a lot. Hoping there’ll be more tracks like this on the album (which I’ll buy regardless)
  6. Hell yes. Dogrel was one of last year’s highlights
  7. Don’t think it’s /100 but simply the US /500. Grabbed one anyway. Thought about grabbing one from the US store, hesitated because of the price, after which it sold out.
  8. Stopped buying Flightless variants after Gumboot Soup. Not that they don’t offer nice variants, but it’s just not worth the extra costs to me. Happily picked up retail editions of Fishing and Infest, and will do the same with this one. The only thing that’s a bit of a bummer is that Europe usually gets the least interesting retail variants as far as King G is concerned..
  9. New Esoctrilihum album up for preorder (/100 color & /200 black): https://metalodyssey.8merch.com/product/esoctrilihum-eternity-of-shaog-2lp/ First song up on Bandcamp sounds great. Also a colored repress of Haunter’s SDQ: https://metalodyssey.8merch.com/product/haunter-sacramental-death-qualia-lp/
  10. Cool, you’re in for a treat then. I’d recommend checking out Esoteric Malacology, their most recent album, and then work backwards from there.
  11. Slugdge - Born of Slime vinyl release available via Bandcamp and Willowtip. Two variants, of which one on random-colored vinyl, so obviously snagged the red & yellow merge.
  12. Not feeling it that much either. At least, the first part. Second (instrumental) half sounds good though. Also, what’s up with that Deathwish price? €37? Outrageous, compared to Stickman’s €20/22,50
  13. Hardly. Glad I didn’t preorder it. The singles didn’t do anything for me, and the rest of the album doesn’t fare any better. Not entirely sure where all the positive reviews come from either.
  14. Amazon sent me a Mogwai box set once without any packaging at all. Just threw a shipping label on there (thing was sealed, fortunately), and called it a day. Somehow it arrived almost intact. Kind of ironic since often it’s the other way around with them, and they use insanely large boxes filled to the brim with padding just to ship a single record.
