this just in

31 Dec

Bathory – Destroyer Of Worlds [GER, 2001 original, not the very similar bootleg]
Bathory – Octagon [GER, 1995 original, cool]
Bathory – Requiem [GER, 1994 original, unfortunately the rear cover must have gotten damaged or lost because this one has been printed at home…]
Incantation – Blasphemous Cremation [US, wicked! this is the unmixed Onward To Golgotha album]
Malignancy – Inhuman Grotesqueries [UK, Candlelight, insane DM]
Vader – Reborn In Chaos [1997 Hammerheart original? comp of old Vader stuff, this rules]
Von – Satanic Blood Angel [2005 NWN! version, there is a 2002 and 2009 too, not bad]

Pick of the litter: Incantation! I don’t really dig Golgotha as much as their other albums but this sounds excellent, the totally unmixed soggy mess makes it sound really gnarly, the different track order is cool too [only 6 songs]



Stoner and sludge

21 Dec

Stoner and sludge

Buzzov•en – Sore [EUR, I’ve literally wanted this for 20 years, really cool album]
Electric Wizard – Come My Fanatics…. / Electric Wizard [UK, 1999, both albums on 2 CDs, handy, I’ve wanted their 1st for a while and now I can trade off my ‘Fanatics reissue] new to Discogs
Fu Manchu – Eatin’ Dust [US, good stuff]
Goatsnake – Goatsnake I [UK, Rise Above, wicked album]
Nebula – Sun Creature [US, EP, sounds like Nebula]
Nirvana – Live At Reading [bootleg Digipak aaarrggghh!] new to Discogs
Orange Goblin – Time Travelling Blues [UK, original, not my favourite but still really good]
Roachpowder – Viejo Diablo [SWE, original OSP version, wicked stoner from Sweden] new to Discogs

Pick of the litter: easily Buzzov•en, but Roachpowder grew on me the most [never heard them before]

Sick puppy: Nirvana, ultra spewing about this thing, I got a refund but still

Private purchase from Shawn – Witchrist
