Blasphemy – Fallen Angel of Doom LP

Blasphemy’s Fallen Angel of Doom was hugely influential in the development of the “war metal” sound (whatever that means to you) and is available on vinyl once again, having been recently reissued by the only label really fit to do so: Nuclear War Now. Die-hards are disappearing, so purchase now or die softly another day, sweet prince: nwnprod.com. Fallen […]

Pig Destroyer – Prowler In The Yard LP

The Relapse Reissue series is finally picking up some steam. Following up immediately on two classic releases from Neurosis comes this crucial pick from grindcore’s finest, Pig Destroyer. Looks like the silver vinyl is already sold out, but you can still pick up some gnarly splatter vinyl at relapse.com.

Neurosis – Through Silver In Blood & Times Of Grace Vinyl Reissues

Two of the most essential records by the seminal metal group Neurosis are, at long last, available once again on vinyl. Through Silver In Blood and Times Of Grace have been out of print on this format for 10 and 15 years respectively and it’s about. damn. time. Plenty of copies are being pressed, with the […]

Morbid Angel – Altars Of Madness & Blessed Are The Sick

If the listings on Amazon can be believed (and they… usually can) then these two masterpieces of death metal from Morbid Angel are returning to vinyl. Earache seems to be slowing down on their production of “Full Dynamic Range” reissues lately, and we have no word whether or not these two titles will bear that […]

Isis – Panopticon 2xLP Repress/Remaster

The Robodogs (oh yyyeah, forgot that Robotic Empire used to be Robodog) have been killing it when it comes to handling Isis’ back catalog. This time, they’re back with a new pressing of the recently (and arguably needed) remastered (by Mika Jussila) bruiser ‘Panopticon’. With the new version, we also got some updated artwork from […]

Drexciya – Harnessed The Storm 2xLP

It’s a good time to start exploring the work of Detroit legends Drexciya. Their classic albums are being repressed on vinyl – thereby nullifying the exorbitant prices being charged on Discogs and Ebay. Harnessed The Storm, in particular, can now be picked up over at experimedia.net (and on sale, too). It also appears that all four 2xLP volumes of the […]

Sleep – Volume One LP

You may or may not have noticed that Sleep’s Volume One has been repressed. That’s about as seminal of a stoner rock record as any basement-dwelling, couch-bound vinyl collector could hope for – so maybe find a way to part with one of your 20 variations of Dopesmoker and pick this one up on wax. Essential. […]

Transllusion – The Opening Of The Cerebral Gate 3xLP

Another killer on the Discogs black market, another Drexciya-related project being reissued – Transllusion’s The Opening Of The Cerebral Gate features more classic Detroit synths and drum programming rendered in inimitable fashion. Orders can be placed currently at redeyerecords.co.uk or normanrecords.com. Stream the entire album at factmag.com.

Drexciya – Neptune’s Lair 2xLP

This has been available for awhile now but once it is gone, Discogs prices will rise again, just as the Drexciyan warriors of the forgotten underwater realms will. And this is what you will listen to while you toil away in their salt mines. Pick it up at experimedia.net or amoeba.com.

King Diamond – The Eye LP & Fatal Portrait LP Reissued

Two new King Diamond reissues from the Metal Blade imprint. As far as we are concerned, you either hunt down the originals or you purchase these (just stay away from that last round of Roadrunner/Cargo reissues – blegh!). Essential. You can pick up The Eye at 20buckspin.com, relapse.com or amazon.com and pick up Fatal Portrait the same way: 20buckspin.com, relapse.com […]
