big score

20 Dec

From Real Groovy, haven’t been to this shop for months since I do night shift and it’s a mission to get there
met a long-time internet mate there for the first time too \m/,

Aura Noir – The Merciless [UK, original misspress Digipak with the CD tray in the centre panel, killer album!]
Bathory – Blood Fire Death [CAN, Kraze repress] new to Discogs
Bathory – The Return…… [RUS, Irond 2002, I should have checked =( cool album anyway]
Burial Hordes – Devotion To Unholy Creed [SIN, Digipak, ripping black death]
Celtic Frost – Monotheist [US, Century Media, yes finally]
Dark Angel – Darkness Descends [GER, 1998 remastered reissue with 3 bonus songs]
Demilich – Nespithe [SPA, 2009 reissue, I never used to like this one because of the vocals but I do now]
Destruktor – Nuclear Storm [US, awesome but I already have one]
Deteriorot – In Ancient Beliefs [US, original WWIII]
Disinter – Welcome To Oblivion [FRA, Deadsun Records + bonus song, other versions don’t have this, solid DM]
Disjecta Membrae – Taedium Vitae [SPA, careless listening is to be avoided – indeed]
Dozer – In The Tail Of A Comet [US, black/white disc version not blue/white, solid stoner] new to Discogs
Exhumation – Seas Of Eternal Silence [DEN, I like the artwork…]
Fleshgrind – Destined For Defilement [US, 1999 reissue, not sure why I got this]
Gojira – L’Enfant Sauvage [AUS, pretty cool, not as good as other albums of theirs]
Iron Maiden – Best Of The Beast [UK, 1996 compilation]
Iron Maiden – Iron Maiden [UK, 1987 repress]
Lair Of The Minotaur – War Metal Battle Master [US, wicked album, spare copy]
Martire – Martire [US, killer stuff, spare copy]
Morningstar – Finnish Metal [FIN, bandannas and bullet belts, uh huh…]
Nazxul – Iconoclast [GER, original on Eisenwald Tonschmiede, I almost like this enough to ignore the synths, almost]
Neurosis – Sovereign [US, original 2000 Digipak, some Neurosis I can’t handle but this is really good]
Old Man Gloom – No [US, gatefold cardboard packaging, I already have a copy of this]
Sepsism – Purulent Decomposition [SPA, original Repulse, this album slays, I have the promo too]
Sons Of Otis – Temple Ball [US, original Man’s Ruin, score!] new to Discogs
Swans – Children Of God / World Of Skin [US, 2xCD reissue of both albums, kind of hard to find this stuff]
Usurper – Threshold Of The Usurper / Skeletal Season [UK, 2 EPs released together? totally wicked and I’m glad I took a punt on it]

Private purchase from Shawn – Witchrist
Mitochondrion / Gyibaaw – Rituals Of Transcendence / Liimk Halaayt [US, quite weird but it’s ok]

Pick of the litter: Usurper, I’ve played this probably 5 times since I got it, catchy and memorable DM, recommended stuff

NB: a few of these go immediately to the trade list
