large haul

23 Jun

Got this great big pile of awesome stuff from my local wicked music shop, took an age to add and update them all!
Some of this goes straight to my trade list for various reasons…

1349 – Demonoir [NOR, original Indie Recordings, I have the double CD with the cover songs too]
Abigail – The Early Black Years: 1992-1995 [a few covers and some very black metal]
Acid King / Altamont Split [US, some excellent stoner doom here, I’ve not heard [of] Altamont before]
Anatomia / Grudge / Coffins – DDDH – Doomed To Death, Damned In Hell [ITA, 3 way death/grind split]
Angelcorpse – Exterminate [Original! not hard to find but I’ve wanted it for an age]
Aura Noir – Hades Rise [original Digipak, more ripping black thrash]
Autopsy – Shitfun [UK, original! I’ve wanted this for a while]
Beherit – Beast Of Beherit – Complete Worxxx [FIN, really cool compilation, probably my favourite release of theirs]
Black Witchery – Upheaval Of Satanic Might [US, Red Stream version, accidental purchase I thought I didn’t have it]
Bulletbelt – Down In The Cold Of The Grave [NZ, black/thrash metal band from NZ, really good live, Nick Keller artwork too, nice]
Conqueror – War Cult Supremacy [Original! looks like I can flick off my reissues now]
Convulse – Inner Evil [FIN, only an EP but it’s cool, pity someone folded the booklet]
Darkspace – Dark Space I [ITA, reissue in slipcase but the silver disc not the black one, whoah this is excellent, I must have played this 8 times since I got it] new to Discogs
Electric Wizard – Let Us Prey [US, wicked but I think I have another copy on the way too, oops]
Godflesh – Slavestate [2009 reissue, part of the 3 CD box but only Slavestate]

High On Fire – The Art Of Self Defense [original, I have the second reissue too, with the cool Eagle]
The House Of Capricorn – Sign Of The Cloven Hoof [NZ, fairly solid NZ metal band, needs some more listens]
Jungle Rot – Fueled By Hate [original Olympic version]
Krieg – The Black House [this had been in the shop for ages and I kept skipping over it because the spines didn’t look very metal ha ha it’s pretty solid BM, cool intro to]
Lust Of Decay – Kingdom Of Corpses [US, I don’t usually go for goregrind but this isn’t bad, Deicide cover too]
Malevolent Creation – Envenomed [this is basically Envenomed II with the 3 bonus songs, Dark Angel cover and 2 demo tracks, but with the old packaging – standard jewel case, I have the original too]
Method Of Destruction – Dictated Aggression [UK, solid, sounds like MOD]
Monster Magnet – God Says No [EUR, advance copy in a slimline jewel case]
Pig Destroyer – Terrifyer + Natasha [CD/DVD, I have 2 copies of this now]

A bit of real life

4 Jun

So after doing night shift for the past 5 months I’m back on days!
Which means I can get back into Real Groovy on a regular basis again, excellent, I miss that place.
Browsing through the ‘groovy bins for bargains or just awesome stuff is a favourite thing of mine to do, especially if it’s raining.
It’s nice too that probably half the staff are considerably more metal than country ha ha

Only Real Groovy is real \,,/,
