My copy has a screenprint hand signed by the artist and numbered 12/25 as well as an Ortega sticker. Any information on this?

This is exactly what I was looking for when I went to Japan a few months back. Noisy, garage, psychedelic, jammy and shitty English lyrics. Great compilation of their album and EP.

Really dig this record, nothing groundbreaking in the post metal/sludge genre but it has a great sound.

I was there as well and I'm still blown away how good all the bands were. I bought two 7"s, when I get home I'll make a release for it if someone already hasn't.

Great compilation of music by Causa Sui, three very dense LPs of stoner, psych goodness and I love the use of the horn section. No frills packaging but great, clear pressing.

I had the original pressing many years ago which I bough upon release which I sold (for a very good price) to help fund a trip to Japan. Worth buying it then, worth selling it and even more worth buying this pressing as fond memories came flooding in. No ... See full review

Amazing album, there's a bit of surface noise on my copy but nothing that distracts too much from the songs. Beautiful packaging and artwork.

Great pressing, no surface noise at all. Amazing album, even with the weird interludes. Love the packaging, there's a few extra photos that aren't on the CD.

Dark and beautiful album. Pressing sounds great and the artwork looks great!

I'm not getting any psychedelic vibes here, it's definitely more doom rock/metal. This was a whim buy because the album cover looks really cool. Beloved Whale is pretty epic.

Same here, I'm an old school metal head and punker! Bought this for my daughter and we often spin it together. It'a a great and fun listen.

Great sounding album, although it did take me a few spins to appreciate it. A few pops and crackles but only in the quiet passages. Tee Pee usually put together decent packaging and this gatefold is pretty cool and psychedelic. The cover though is ... See full review

Decent stoner metal album, nothing spectacular. Vocals took a few listens to appreciate but they grew on me. I have 4th Colour - Red splatter vinyl looks really cool and packaging / gatefold look great too.

Great space out psych band, nothing too heavy and easy to get lost in. Cool coloured vinyl and artwork is great too.
posted a comment on The Iceburn Collective - Power Of The Lion. 7 months ago
It's not an easy listen...so before you dive in, enter with an open mind. It's free jazz with sporadic blasts of noise and distortion. I do prefer the less experimental previous albums but this is still quite interesting how Densley pushed his vision. ... See full review

Great rock n roll album! Pity they didn't do anything else.

Sorry Mothers Of Gut, although I do love your band name, the artwork and overall design this really isn't a solid release. Side A is almost a waste and decent tunes don't kick in until Side B where Smoke The Master and Wizard Tree are pretty cool but the ... See full review

Amazing album, there's stoner, doom, metal and rock here and it all works so well. Love the coloured vinyl and the artwork is killer as well. No major sound issues, sounds great!

My version's a little crackly but that's just the age of it. Sound is a little dull or muffled even but crank the volume and it sounds pretty good. If anything the muffled sound is part of it's charm. State Of Euphoria some classic Anthrax tunes and sits ... See full review
posted a comment on Sepultura - Roots. 7 months ago
Yes Arise is a thrash classic and sure Chaos A.D paved the way but Roots is just an amalgamation of everything they had done before with a very modern twist. This isn't nu-metal though, this is just heavy!

Amazing repress from the music, sound quality and packaging. One of the highlights of my collection!
posted a comment on Earth (2) - Primitive And Deadly. 7 months ago
Not as strong as Earth's past few albums. Although thew music is solid, it's the vocals that seem out of place here. Packaging is excellent Southern Lord quality. Artwork is killer and the marbled pressing looks great with little to no surface noise.

An interesting rendition of Springsteen's Nebraska album, still retains the same melancholy tone though. Great packaging, sleeves are strong and red/blue pressing looks great.

I have a blue opaque version like La Dispute - Rooms Of The House ltd version but with Cat# BL01/WH34. Can anyone help out with my version?

Interesting album, a bit post metal, a bit drone. Always in a cheap bin here in Melbourne. Album packaging and art are really well done.

An amazingly powerful and emotive album. A few hisses and cracks but only can hear through headphones.
posted a comment on Cult Of Luna - Vertikal + II. about 1 year ago
Great packaging. I've had a small falling out with COL and post metal in general, I love them but as my tastes in music evolve the sheer denseness of this album makes it a tedious listen...but that's a reflection of me and not the album.

Picked this up in Melbourne on the first week of release. A few stores were told that it was being delayed by a few days but I grabbed mine with about 10 in store, maybe limited to a few stores only? Anyway, my version is a little noisy but nothing too ... See full review

A slow and brooding set of tracks, only starts to pick up pace on track 4 'Loco Hills'. This is dim the lights, pop a sleeping pill and drows off to a lo-fi fuzzy wonderland.

Nothing better than finding gems while digging. Found this still shrink wrapped and for a good price. I've been on a psych journey as of late and this album ticks a lot of boxes for me. Sonically moody and loud, screechy guitars, background feedback, ... See full review

Great album and a great pressing/release. I bought this on day one back in the day and sold it in 2004 to fund a trip overseas for some decent coin but nothing compared to what it goes for now.

I've been digging this style of neo-heavy psychadelia like The Cosmic Dead and such. it's a great sounding record, no static or noise and the pressing quality is high. Cover warps a little when there's no record in the sleeve.
posted a comment on The Black Angels - Death Song. about 1 year ago
My copy had bit of static noise coming out of the right channel, mostly on Side A. I gave it a clean and although it's still there, it's muted. Not noticable on speakers but can be a little annoying with headphones. Apaprt from that, fantastic packaging ... See full review
