August 26 scores

27 Aug

Got these yesterday from a Metal Archives seller

Augury – Concealed [CAN, original on Galy Records, cool and interesting but not sure what I think of the female operatic vocals]
Burial Invocation – Rituals Of The Grotesque [glad to have this one back]
Cannibal Corpse – Bloodthirst [GER, Censored Version one I was missing, solid album, sounds like CC]
Capharnaum – Fractured [US, Willowtip, pretty cool tech death]
Council Of The Fallen – Revealing Damnation [Nice, I forgot how cool this album was]
Isis – Oceanic [US, a blind buy, not bad but it’s no celestial…]

74 DVD score

6 Aug

I called a video shop near me to see if their resurfacing machine was operable, last time it was out for repair when I called and this time it was inoperable too due to some chip or piece being in need of replacement? anyway the bloke on the phone said I should come in anyway because they were closing down and flicking off all their DVDs and Blu-ray discs…
I went a bit nuts but got some good stuff! some of them I already have but the place had been pillaged already so I just grabbed stuff I knew was good, I have about 8 double ups/different versions which I’ll sell off soon.
I have a mountain of DVD cases here now too, I got all the photocopied ‘shelf’ covers and the original coloured ones but they each had cases so now I have about 70 spares ha ha

Same photo but two different angles, still a bit blurry though :/
I suppose I could list them all

Ufomammut ‎– Oro: Opus Primum [this is, emotional, one day I’ll play this album as loud as my stereo will go]

Marduk ‎– Dark Endless [original version on No Fashion Records, Dureco matrix, no barcode, score!]
