Merauder: Master Killer Final Copy - Dead Serious Press on Red Vinyl

Somehow this record because an obsession of mine and I have collected 6 different variations of the release. The newest one is the red copy of the Dead Serious release.  Also here is the white copy from Dead Serious, the original black copy on Century Media, Gray/Cola on Deathwish, Pink/Black swirl on Deathwish and the Deathwish test press! 

High on Fire: De Vermis Mysteriis Limited Edition with Blue Print and Poster(Maroon Vinyl)

Here are another couple of copies of De Vermis Mysteriis from High on Fire. These are very limited UK versions from Century Media that were printed for the Roadburn festival and were available a week prior to the release. This edition has 4 extra tracks on it comes along with a nice, fold out poster. Printed on limited 180g maroon vinyl and the cover has the logo in blue, instead of the standard pressing, which has it in red. 

The fat, blue spines fit right in next to the red ones.  The HOF section is getting pretty thick!

Snapcase: Progression Through Unlearning Original Pressing

Some old school Victory records hardcore.  This Snapcase record was actually repressed on Record Store Day, but I didn't grab a copy and it just so happened that I found the OG press at Singles Going Steady for a few dollars cheaper. 

Champion: Time Slips Away (Clear Vinyl) and Promises Kept (Green Vinyl) Pre-Order Package with huge poster

A nice Bridge 9 pre-order package for the beloved Seattle straight edge band Champion. I have the "Final" pressing of Promises Kept from their last show in Seattle.  Apparently, it was not their final press after all! 

Also, I have the 7" releases of  Count Our Numbers and Come our Swinging, which were compiled into this 12" Time Slips Away.

Time Slips Away on clear vinyl 

Promises Kept on green and in a much nicer, gatefold cover

And the pre-order package came along with a massive poster, which will look great framed!

Death Grips: Exmilitary

The first material from Death Grips that I had heard, Exmilitary totally capitvated me and remains the most unique thing I have heard in a very long time. This is the debut release from them and was self released.  It had such an impact that Epic records picked them up for a 2 record contract, both of which will be released in 2012. 

Cattle Decapitation: Monolith of Inhumanity Pre order package with Cattle Pail Kids/Recycling Bin/Shirts etc

This is one of the best pre-order packages I have seen.  The amount of items and the quality and creativity behind them made it a no brainer to pick it up! on top of the presentation, this album is absolutely amazing.

The theme of the package is Cattle Pail Kids, a take on the old school trading cards; the Garbage Pail Kids.

The package consists of everything pictured below. 

Limited pressing of the vinyl on split/splatter wax. 

Large Cattle Pail Kids poster, autographed by the whole band.

Mini recycling bin with a pack of  Cattle Pail Kids cards, each a depiction of a member of the band. 

And a series of 4 shirts, one for each Cattle Pail Kid
