MAILMANBRO RIDES AGAIN

Years ago, industry experts predicted the doom of physical media. Those experts were dildos. Sure, sales of physical albums are nowhere near their gold-plated cocaine heyday, but a dedicated army of metalheads still purchase all the vinyl and CDs they can afford. When those metalheads buy albums online they all look forward to the day their champion arrives, haul in hand. We all patiently wait for one hero: Mailmanbro. Mailmanbro brings presents for all the good little boys and girls. Here’s some of the most recent hauls he brought you.

Technically, Mailmanbro didn’t bring me these things. Instead, I visited his cousin, Usedrecordstorebro.

Joe Haul

David from Hadean got some sweet rekkids, including two from Deathspell Omega

David Hadean Haul

Pagliacci got some sweet tuneage from the Best Unsigned Band in Iowa, Blizzard at Sea.

Pagliacci Haul

Iron Lawnmower got this stone-cold classic debut from Sodom.

Iron Lawnmower Haul

Doctor Kolkey with a perfect haul! Cult of Luna, Chthe’ilist Horrendous, King Diamond, and…. uh… wait a minute. One of these things is not like the others. One of these things is anime trash.

Kolkey Haul

Ann Kvlter coming in strong with a deluxe edition of the latest Aborted album, Retrogore. That poster looks siqqq.

Ann Kvlter Haul

The Lizard finally got his claws on his long awaited Besieged tape, something else with Hubert’s evil cousin on the front and a killer Zhrine shirt.

Jom Pootersan got the latest Destroyer 666 album and a tasty one from Toilet favorites Fin.

Jom Pootersan Haul

Sweettooth0 is feeling especially monochromatic lately

I’m fairly certain Richter didn’t understand the task at hand, so he just took a picture of some 8-track tapes.

Richter Haul

The Masterlord is saying, “Get back, motherfucker!” cuz you don’t know him like that.

Finally, Coal Roll went absolutely apeshit buying music. His latest haul featured my favorite Morbid Angel album AND the latest from the Lizard’s beloved Zhrine.

  • Lacertilian

    As you can tell from the crappy quality of my picture, I don’t take photos of myself very often.

  • Nice filthy haul Sweettooth0. I got that Necrony on cassette. Oldschool gore FTW!

    • Dubs

      He also got that Legion of Andromeda.

      • Heavy stuff. Sledge hammer to anvil too. You know what I’m talkin about.

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      Dat Necropole>>>>>>>
      Ordered it me’self yesterday.

      • Yes! Very overlooked band. Quality!

    • Elegant Gazing Globe

      you got one of those Sodom’s huh? I saw they sold out

      • Yeah, I figured they would. It’s my favorite Sodom album so it was a must buy for me.

    • Dave Vincent’s Perm

      Goatpenis? *tips hat*

      • I have you to thank for that one. Found it on Discogs for pretty cheap actually.

        • Dave Vincent’s Perm

          How much? It seemed to be pretty decently priced on bandcamp.

          • Well, I don’t like doing digital downloads. I got it for like $8 with shipping.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            Nah, they were selling the CD on bandcamp. Still, nice deal.

          • It was from Brazil though. Shipping would have jacked up the price. I lucked out for sure finding it in the U.S.

          • Elegant Gazing Globe

            you also choose to pay a little higher prices on discogs to buy domestically?

          • Dubs

            It can be worth it if they’re shipping from BFE.

        • Dave Vincent’s Perm

          I bought a turntable on Sunday so I think I’m going to have to get acquainted with Discogs.

          • Elegant Gazing Globe

            Discogs keeps mailmanbro busy

          • Fucking AY! My mail-bro-lady probably hates me because of it.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            Someone selling Massive Conspiracy Against All Life ltd in the UK on there, but he doesn’t say how much shipping is, ach

          • Elegant Gazing Globe

            Shipping prices are defined after you order based on where you live and where it’s sent from. Be prepared

        • Dubs

          Ever since I started my account there, I’ve been comparing prices on Amazon, bandcamp, and discogs to find the cheapest.

          • Discogs is great! Plus you can build some good relationships with sellers which can lead to some great advantages such as discounts.

          • Dubs

            Oh that’s cool, though I doubt I’ll ever reach an amount of purchasing that opens up that kind of relationship.

          • Haha, good point.

          • Elegant Gazing Globe

            I can attest to this

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Fuck yeah Secrets of the Black Arts

      • Came with the remastered disc and the original mix. I finally own this! Pumped.

        • CyberneticOrganism

          I love that pointless intro track: 16 seconds of bass rumble

    • Lacertilian

      I see you’ve been harvesting this year’s blood. Very nice crop.

    • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

      Majestic bastard.

    • dat dark funeral

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    Lizard knows what’s up with that ZHRINE. It’s outstanding.

    Also Mailmanbro delivered me some quality fukking hate

    • Glad to see my write-up helped sell some of these.

      • Elegant Gazing Globe

        Hopefully the money I spent is being used to fund despair.

        • I’m sure it is… Or to just buy beer.

    • tigeraid

      That tape looks angry as fukk.

    • Vault Dweller

      I grabbed that album on bandcamp, it tickles my naughty parts. I wasn’t dvrk or cvlt enough to get the cassette though, being that I’m a filthy casual.

  • Nice Dissection score. That original?

    • Elegant Gazing Globe

      Ultimate Reissue, 2LP, and it has a really nice booklet.

      • Rad, still need that one.

        • Elegant Gazing Globe

          The originals are all pic discs I believe, and most of the re-issues that are for sale are either pic, or transparent, no less than $40 for any versions.

          I prefer black wax, and for an album that I love so much, it was worth the premium to me for this version with all of it’s extras.

          • Picture discs are so fucking dumb.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            Isn’t that what jacket artwork is for?

          • Exactly

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I own one of Book Of Dreams, Crazy Nights and Bat Out Of Hell

  • Waynecro

    Sweet fuckin’ hauls, bros!

  • Jom Pootersan

    Purchasing the new Zhrine is mighty tempting right now.

    • Elegant Gazing Globe

      That is a good decision

  • Dave Vincent’s Perm

    Domination is your favourite morbid Angel album? Boo.

    • sry for lieking different thing

      • Dave Vincent’s Perm

        How dare you not like what I like?

      • Dave Vincent’s Perm

        But srsly, it is scientifically provable that Covenant is the best MA album. I’ll ask my scientist friend and he’ll be like ‘yeah dood it’s science I derived all the equations’

        • Dubs

          Covenant? Really? Altars or Gateways or gtfo

          • Elegant Gazing Globe

            and then Blessed are the sick, and then Domination.
            Covenant is mediocre at best.

          • I hate the production on Blessed so much. It completely kills that album for me.

          • Elegant Gazing Globe

            you have digital versions? I agree. I have not been disappointed in the quality of any of their vinyl though, including this “unofficial” release. Blessed is on my wish list

          • Good to know, same goes for the mix for Persecution Mania. The mix on the recent vinyl repress is finally turned the fuck up!!!

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            German thrash >>>>>>

          • This I can agree on!!!

          • Elegant Gazing Globe

            I got a full dynamic range press of a Carcass record from JAG that sounds amazing

          • Nice, which one?

          • Elegant Gazing Globe

            not the one you would choose, but not the newest one either.

          • Ah, gottcha bro-yo.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            ALWAYS
            BE
            MIXING

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            I love both of those albums. I love morbid angel in general (obviously) but covenant has Vengeance Is Mine and World of Shit.

        • Elegant Gazing Globe

          This assertion just proved #filthycasual

        • I kindly disagree. Altars FTW!

          • Elegant Gazing Globe

            look for the all new Full Dynamic Range pressing of Altars in the next installment of mailmanbro.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            Free shipping in UK fuck yeah

          • NICE! Also, best live death metal performance ever…

  • tigeraid

    Richter pls! You didn’t read the instructions!

    I need to get into retro gaming tho. There’s just something about playing on the old system, with the old controller, rather than a PC emulator.

    • That something is hundreds and hundreds of dollars. It’s not worth it, the market is completely bloated.

      • tigeraid

        way 2 crush my dreams, bro.

        Then again, I don’t play on the emulator with a controller either. Maybe I should just find one of those adapters.

        • Oh yeah. They’re like 10 bucks on Amazon. Currently looking at building a Raspberry Pi emulation center to play old shit on my TV.

          • Spear

            Super cheap, very simple. Spear approves.

      • ^ this.

        Don’t do this, Tiger.

    • I got a Retron 5 for nes, snes & sega all in one.

      • tigeraid

        How is that thing, anyway? I’ve heard good reviews and bad. Do you need an adapter cord to work with a modern 1080p TV?

    • CyberneticOrganism

      We had an 80s day in December: Drive Radio and original NES games all day

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      I have a Sega Genesis, a Dreamcast, a PS1 and others.

  • Can’t tell if that Domination album art is worse or better than the original. Haha!!! Either way, fucking sick score! I somehow missed that image scrolling down the list.

    • Elegant Gazing Globe

      I believe that this art was on all of the vinyl versions.

      • Interesting, never realized that. I think it’s somehow worse though. Lol

        • Dave Vincent’s Perm

          The original cover wasn’t exactly easy on the eyes.

          • That’s what I’m saying bro-dirt.

        • Elegant Gazing Globe

          My shit camera does not help, it’s actually pretty cool looking. Colors are pretty muted, not nearly as vivid as they are on this one

  • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

    *finishes up list of digital downloads to get for this week*

    • hey man, you cant beat a $1.00 pack of american spirits

      • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

        Ewwwwwwwwwwwww, fuck no! It’s for Newports (I smoke the red 100s).

        • sounds like Virginia to me

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Actually, R.J Reynolds owns the company, which is in North Carolina.

  • CyberneticOrganism

    I haven’t bought any physical music media but I did buy a new camera. Soon I’ll be taking shitty yet hi-res vacation pics of trees & shit.

    • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

      Good to know I’m not alone in the no-physical media department. Nothing against physical copies, but I’m spoiled with digital downloads.

      • CyberneticOrganism

        I just hate clutter with a passion, I’m in a constant war against it. I feel like I could give away of a third of what I own and never miss it. Old storage shit in boxes, little junk drawer trinkets, etc.

        • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

          Same. I barely have any room left in my room as is, and the last few CDs I’ve gotten get ripped to my computer and tossed on my headphones anyway, then off to my little box never to be seen again. About the same for DVDs, unless I see one on the cheap that’s hard to find.

        • i just like having a billion songs at my fingertips, whether i’m driving around town, working out, or on an airplane. i’m old fashioned like that.

    • tertius_decimus

      Knowing how good you’re at photographing whatever surrounds you, “shitty yet hi-res vacation pics” is masochistic self-deprecation.

    • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

      If you don’t mind my asking, what kind did you get? I too recently scored a new camera.

  • Richter’s and Coal Roll hauls are my favorite in this one. That Aborted poster is awesome, too!

    I don’t know why Masterlord went full urban with some DJ things. I like him better when he’s grumpy with all the moss in his dungeon.

  • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

    Hot burning black tons of rocking shit all round.

  • Waynecro

    I got this sweet bottle opener from Mailmanbro today (yeah, I know I’m a dork):

    • tertius_decimus

      Gunsaw?

      • Waynecro

        Carcass bone saw. Too bad it’s not sharp enough to saw anything.

        • tertius_decimus

          At least it’s suitable for scratching surfaces. In our childhood days we wrote many shitty prases on school desks and tables. Those furniture items were literally covered with writings and drawings and school management couldn’t do anything to prevent and stop this, cause they had no money to buy new tables or sand them down to bare wood and recover with lacquer.

          • Waynecro

            I’m hoping that having a proper bottle opener in the house will prevent my parents from spilling stout beer all over everything.

          • tertius_decimus

            Ha-ha)

          • more beer

            They should only be spilling stout down their throats.

          • Waynecro

            Well, my ex poached the good bottle opener from the kitchen, so my mom was using this busted old bottle opener that, apparently, causes beer bottles to fall over. Though I do suspect that she wouldn’t have had an issue if she had been even remotely sober at the time.

          • more beer

            She couldn’t just leave it in the kitchen. Where everyone could use it.

          • Waynecro

            She wanted it in her room, I guess.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Lol, like my one friend used to tell me when I’d accidentally spill beer: “That’s alcohol abuse, look what you’re doing to that beer!”

    • Elegant Gazing Globe

      Wondering if anyone here bought it, I think it’s cool.

      • Waynecro

        I couldn’t resist. I needed a decent bottle opener, and I’m a total Carcass fanboy.

        • Elegant Gazing Globe

          You hold it by the blade?

          • Waynecro

            Yeah. Sometimes you just gotta live on the edge.

    • more beer

      Dude you need beer for that. Also a real man can open a bottle with just about anything.

      • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

        Waynecro, in his infinite buffness, can open a bottle with his fingernail. And that is why I’m voting Waynecro.

        Waynecro2016

        • more beer

          No he obviously needs Carcass merch to open a bottle. Check out the interview with Don Fury on No Echo. When you get a chance. It’s very good.

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            He needs Carcass merch to look like an extra total bad ass!

            Will do!

          • Waynecro

            Seriously. I just really like Carcass merch that’s bad ass.

          • the dirtiest spot in my house is the little divider that has the wall-mounted bottle opener

        • Waynecro

          Thank you for your confidence, citizen! I can’t remember whether I ever used my fingernail to open a bottle, but I do know that I never met a sealed alcohol container that could keep me out. Now I just open cans of zero-calorie cola on weekends, and I certainly have no problem using my fingernail to do that.

          • personally, i think fingernails are gross.

            i even file my nails

      • Waynecro

        My mom opens bottles of beer for my dad, and she’s most definitely not a real man.

        • more beer

          I didn’t think your mom was a man.

          • Waynecro

            Right. But that’s why she didn’t use just about anything to open the beer. My dad is a real man, so he uses my mom to open beer.

          • more beer

            Your dad has it figured out.

          • Waynecro

            He really does. When my folks visit me, my dad just sits there playing my Gibson SG, and mom brings him beers every now and then.

          • more beer

            Good for him. Also I did say with just about anything. Which includes your mom. He gets bonus points for having it brought to him.

          • Waynecro

            Despite being a kooky 70-year-old man with hillbilly tendencies, my dad has his shit together.

          • more beer

            If you don’t have your shit together by then. You will never have it together.

        Scored a copy of Dr. Octagonecologyst with the holographic art a few days ago. I wish I had some friends who dug hip hop. It’s a real looker.

            Yep and a band has their whole life to make their first album then a year give or take to make their second. It is why a lot of first albums are great and the second is not so good.

    • Óðinn

      That’s a classic. I had that on cassette.

      • more beer

        Yes it is I had it on vinyl.
