    Total mailorder kid here from back in the day, hard-earned "well hidden cash" mailed to Very, Vacuum, Victory, Bottlenekk, Ebullition, etc on a monthly basis in the 90s.... so coming from that world, we kinda don't sweat the impatient folks.
     
    I mean, it's pretty clear we aren't Amazon.com - it's a very small operation with just 1 person packing and shipping every order. We're pretty clear about that, so if folks can't hold onto their horses then so be it.
     
    That being said, totally also understand the anticipation and excitement to receive a package too, so we do our best to make up for "our pace" with securely packing and shipping everything in a manner that we'd be happy to receive it ourselves... and often throw in some kinda extras or stickers or something if things get delayed a bit.

    So for anyone waiting: thank you for your patience.
    To everyone who already understands: thank you even more

    Four lost FLOOR tracks from back in the day have just been posted on Robotic Empire's bandcamp page: http://roboticempire.bandcamp.com

    Although unrelated to their upcoming album (or recent self-titled reissue), these are further old rarities that were missed during the assembly of the Below & Beyond box set and are now available for free/pay-what-you-want. Guitarist and founding member Anthony Vialon said:

    "Not long ago, I found some stuff on tape that got missed when we did the box-set. There's the original version of 'Vampyro' (which we called 'Asssmasher), a[n alternate] version of 'Slugthrower', and another track called 'Avalanche On Paws'.

    They're instrumental and, of course, aren't of the highest quality, yet no worse than any of the other stuff we have on there. The other song was from the first demo we did with Jeff called 'The Closet' (from the Slomophobe/Iommi demo).

    [These] songs have nothing to do with the upcoming record but they should, at least, be heard by fans who bought the box-set. Man, there were so many tapes and everything, they simply got missed..."

    FLOOR's new album Oblation is due April 29th via Season of Mist, and recent Self-Titled + Outtakes 12"+7" reissue is available now via Robotic Empire:

    ^ LOL - that BTNH thing turned out to be sketchy so we intentionally stopped pushing it - ultimately for the best. Ballsy, a bit stupid, but a good learning experience. So it goes!
     
    also, FYI...



    Furiously packing orders! Thanks to everyone who's nabbed the recent FLOOR reissue and/or sale stuff - first big run to the post office early next week, then more furious packing orders!

    roboticempire got a reaction from mcpherson123 in New old BARONESS release, recycled VINYL JEWELRY, t-shirts..   
    We are very excited to announce the availability of BARONESS' formative material, First & Second, once again as a deluxe vinyl LP! Released by old pals Hyperrealist Records, we have worked closely with our comrades on this fantastic release, and Robotic Empire is thrilled to announce that we are the first (and currently, sole) mailorder/distro operation that has this glorious record available.
    * BARONESS - First & Second 12" is available now exclusive in the Robotic Empire - Online Store

    Having personally witnessed this band go from basements to arenas, it has been unsurprising yet invigorating to watch the incredible assent of one of the most ambitious bands in heavy music today. BARONESS started their foundation with a solid mixture of punk, metal and rock n roll. First & Second showcases their impressive initial offerings, combined on to one cohesive long-player.
    All 38 minutes of material was re-mixed and re-mastered for this re-release, which has just been re-pressed as 2000 LPs: 1000 on opaque purple vinyl, and 1000 on an opaque yellowly marble color. Each vinyl color is a direct pantone match from within the artwork, and beautifully compliment the entire elaborate package. The LP is housed in a doublesided full color innersleeve, which resides inside a glorious gatefold jacket imprinted with a foil stamp on the exterior... all completely enveloped in BARONESS songwriter/guitarist/vocalist John Dyer Baizley's stunning and elaborate artwork that he has since become world famous for.
    Previously referred to as post-metal or prog-metal, BARONESS' strength in their initial sound is that it truly defies classification. Everything from thunderous stoner riffs to D-beat hardcore aggression, psychedelic interludes to classic metal guitar harmonies, all topped off with powerful, guttural vocals, First & Second showcases a young but capable band changing genre and style as seamlessly and effortlessly as they change tempo. This is absolutely classic material, and we are elated to present it to you today!
    * BARONESS - First & Second 12" available now exclusive in the Robotic Empire - Online Store

    Last and possibly least, we're running a t-shirt giveaway through the end of the month, where if you buy two shirts you can get one of the following for free:
    * Floor - Dove
    * Floor - Heather
    * Floor - Leaves
    * Magrudergrind - Facemelter
    * Nadja - Bone Blight
    * Thou - Owl
    These are rad shirts no doubt, but we just have too many of them taking up much-needed shelf space. Get yourself some phat new summer threads, or if you're the planning-ahead-type... an alternative is "buy 4 shirts get 1 free hoodie":
    * Torche - Ciou Elephant
    You can cozy up this fall/winter in that jammer. Again, a super nice garment but just taking up too much space at the moment!
    TO REDEEM: Just enter in the shirt you want in the "comments" note part at checkout, and be sure to include your shirt size and maybe an alternative design or size just in case we run out. Word?
    That party is happening now in the Robotic Empire - Online Store, and will cease to exist at the end of June.
    That's it, thank you & peace!
