    Oh man. Is there ever. This whole process has been nothing short of a disaster. So sorry to everyone who has been waiting so patiently during this whole thing.

    I'm right on the cusp of pulling the plug and giving everyone a refund.

    As of mid-May, production at GZ ceased (who, I think, initially are the ones who fucked everything up in the first place) and was moved to an operation in Florida that was local to Merchant Vinyl, with the understanding that this was going to be a "rush job, 2.5 weeks, 911-style turnaround, with a significant discount." We said great, you have until June 1 (which was exactly 3 weeks).  MV said great too and that everything was rolling.

    Well here we are on June 5 with no records, and despite their promise, they whiffed.  Again.

    I'm currently in the web of getting a refund for the initial pressing, so I can re-submit payment. The last email I got from MV that explained all of this, finished with the line "let me be very clear, you will get your records by July 1." I thought it was a typo, so I inquired and got the response "June 1 ain't happening." Like those were legit the words used. WTF. Band is pissed obviously (not at me thankfully) because they've missed out on several opportunities to sell their record. So now I'm waiting for this refund to transfer from MV and then was gonna see if the band wanted to make a clean break. Planning on doing a mass update here in the next few days when I get an answer.

    There is part of me that is like "well we've waited this long, may as well see it through" but then there is a much bigger part of me that has been losing sleep and having anxiety attacks about this and just wants it all to be over. This mess has killed dead any forward momentum this little label had. It's been tough to stay positive. Of course I'd rather give the customer the record and not a refund, but at this point I'm just tired of thinking about it and want to focus on future records and leave this shit in the past.

     

    Wish I had better news, but I don't. So maybe records July 1? Or maybe a refund in the next few days. Really could go either way at this point.

    I would recommend, if there are any folks in this thread paying attention to this whole deal who also run a small label, to never, ever use Merchant. Total disaster all the way across the board - from communication, to customer service, to pricing, to timeline... everything. What is most strange about it is that I had GREAT experiences with them on two prior releases. But man, total 180.

    I have a friend in Richmond who went to them for his record and he is in the same boat. And I guess if I were to take comfort in anything, it is that I'm not the only one dealing with this shit, but it's hard to take comfort in that because it fucking sucks.

     

    Man, so sorry you're having to deal with all of this bullshit. I'm fine waiting. I was just wondering what was happening. What about just going through Pirate's Press? Either way, no need to stress or lose sleep. It's only a damn record.:D I do know what you're going through when everything seems to go wrong and you just stress the hell out and think about never ever doing it again. It's all a learning process. Everything will work out one way or another.


  2. Tomb Mold is already getting a lot of great reviews for their new lp. This one collects the two demos. Surprised the /100 versions are still available. Went with purple.

    BLOOD HARVEST RECORDS is proud to present TOMB MOLD's The Bottomless Perdition / The Moulting on CD and vinyl LP formats. This collection comprises the Canadian death metallers' first two (and long sold-out) demos on one convenient format. Originally released in 2016, even early on, TOMB MOLD displayed a shockingly mature sound, which would come to its full fruition on their subsequent (and massively critically acclaimed) debut album, Primordial Malignity. Here, between these two demos, the duo wrote their self-confessed “love letter” to '90s Finnish death metal: cavernous, slimy, and serpentine, this is TOMB MOLD in their rawest form. And yet, despite these being first-step demos, both The Bottomless Perdition and The Moulting trounce most other death metal records hailing under the banner of “old school” – which, come Primordial Malignity, would soundly result in the New School. Hear where the (justified) hype began, now in one place!

    Bought it and then listened to it. Isn't it supposed to be the other way around? Missed out on some first pressings recently on 20buck and this band is from my town, so it was a "no-listener". Now, that I have listened, I am stoked.

    This is awesome! On a related note does anyone know if the Sunn 0))) Downtown Rehearsal Riff Tape Vinyl release offered as part of the Southern Lord 20th Anniversary Subscription Series is going to see a release outside of the subscription?  Currently that's the only way I see to get it 

    I'm pretty sure I read that it was the only way to get it. Probably the deciding factor for most people who did the subscription.
