Vinyl Confessions: RIGHTEOUS METAL III

Leave a comment

saint - in the battle
SAINT – In The Battle
This was a comeback of sorts for Saint, getting back their original singer and their original heavy metal LIKE GOD INTENDED; a decade or so later, they remaster and re-released this with new artwork and on gorgeous white vinyl…fan-tastic, really…

philadelphia - search and destroy

PHILADELPHIA – Search & Destroy
Here was the Holy Grail of rare early metal releases, trying to find it since hearing the title cut on the cheesy yet fun Righteous Metal compilation; thanks to Roxx Records, I now have it, on gold vinyl and a greatly improved album cover artwork…came with a sticker of the album artwork as well…

xdisciplex - heaven + hell

xDISCIPLEx A.D. – Heaven & Hell
Randomly ran into this one at Half Price Books perusing their used vinyl, and grabbed it immediately…great hardcore classic, pressed on clear vinyl…looks good, sounds good, bit of water damage on the cover, but otherwise a great find…

sacrament - testimony of apocalypse

SACRAMENT – Testimony Of Apocalypse
This album needed the vinyl treatment, and save for the spindle hole being a bit small, I have no complaints about this thrash classic re-release…

Vinyl Confessions: RIGHTEOUS METAL II

Leave a comment

In which I feature more of my favorite METAL bands that have something of a certain theological bent, let’s just say…
demon hunter - war
DEMON HUNTER – War
demon hunter - peace
DEMON HUNTER – Peace
Grouping these two together, as they were just released by Demon Hunter simultaneously. I got them as part of the deluxe pre-order I signed up for back when Solid State announced them, which included these two vinyl copies of the two albums. Nice looking, yes…sounds great, too…
fear not
FEAR NOT – Fear Not
A much-needed remastering, as well as new updated artwork…oh, and a release on vinyl, as this was originally released only on CD and cassette back in 1993, and vinyl records had fallen out of vogue as far as music media was concerned…
haven - your dying day
HAVEN – Your Dying Day
Another Roxx Productions remaster and re-release on vinyl of an out-of-print classic, this one from melodic heavy metal act Haven. Of course, I couldn’t have this one without getting…
haven - age of darkness
HAVEN – Age Of Darkness
…their second release, also an out-of-print classic in the genre, also given the same treatment by Roxx Productions. Gads, I love that company…

Vinyl Confessions: ODDS N’ SODS

This week, here are some odds and ends that don’t necessarily fall into one category, picked up at various places over time…
baby metal metal resistance
BABY METAL – Metal Resistance
I found this at the Half Price Books, which was kind of surprise, as I wasn’t aware of other Baby Metal fans in Omaha, other than myself and Art from the Coven of Exalted Geeks. Regardless, not my favorite of their two releases, but a find is a find…
stryper fallen
STRYPER – Fallen
I picked this up when Stryper swung through town back in 2016. I was afraid that it was ruined when I played it on the Cosley suitcase record player I had at the time, but fortunately that wasn’t the case when I gave it a spin on the proper turntable I got…
cure, the pornography
The CURE – Pornography
My favorite release from The Cure. This is a re-pressing, on that 180-gram vinyl that seems to be all important to other collectors. I’ve already spun this several times. It’s great to throw on after work to decompress…
black sabbath - sabbath bloody sabbath
BLACK SABBATH – Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
A proto-Doom Metal classic from the masters. I would have liked to have picked up the self-titled debut or Masters Of Reality, but as the only Black Sabbath album available at the shop I stopped by that one afternoon, it’s not a bad find. This is also one of those 180-gram re-releases…
