The time is nigh for celebration, fellow odious record-collecting nerds! Record Store Day is this Saturday! Here is the definitive ranking for every punk, metal, and hardcore record being released.

Every year there is a giant shit pile of exclusive records set to be released. Most of them are unbearably lame but a few are worth the price of getting up early and nursing a hangover in a line with a bunch of other misanthropes. I looked over the full list of Record Store Day releases and ranked most of the punk and metal (and some other stuff) records in order of Rad to Not Rad. Warning: Opinions below.

1.

MetallicaNo Life Til Leather | Blackened
EASILY the coolest release this year. You can get Metallica’s classic demo tape (featuring the OG lineup with Mustaine on ax and Ron McGovney slapping the bass) on cassette! In this rare instance, releasing an album on cassette makes sense as an aesthetic choice rather than an ironic move by some slapdick band of morons*.

2.

V/A: The Wrestling Album & PILEDRIVER: The Wrestling Album 2 | Legacy
FUCK AND YES. In 1985 a butt-ton of wrestlers on the WWF roster put out The Wrestling Album, a collection of mostly wrestling theme songs from the likes of Captain Lou Albano and Roddy Piper. In 1987, we got a sequel with PILEDRIVER: The Wrestling Album 2. It’s more of the same, but if you’re a sucker for kitschy wrestling nostalgia, that’s not a bad thing (there’s even a song by Vince McMahon!). This 2 LP collection has both albums and I must have it.

3.

GWARAmerica Must be Destroyed | Metal Blade
Gwar’s 3rd LP is getting the 2×12″ vinyl reissue treatment INCLUDING pop-up art! Cool story time: This record was inspired by obscenity charges Dave Brockie faced for flashing his giant prosthetic dong cuttlefish on stage in North Carolina. Gimme.

4.

MDCSmoke Signals | Beer City Skateboards
For their 1986 LP Smoke Signals, hardcore punks MDC turned down the hardcore and turned up the prog. From the bizarre 70s-style rock of “South Africa is Free” to the Little Richard quasi-cover “Tofutti” and the country-fried vegetarian anthem “Country Squawk”, this is a really, really weird album. But it’s fun and I want it and you should buy it for me.

5.

Brand NewDeja Entendu | Triple Crown Records
Not even a little metal and just BARELY punk, I don’t care; I must have this 2 x 12″ vinyl reissue of Deja Entendu. I totally won’t drink bottom shelf whiskey and weep for my misspent youth while listening to this. Definitely not.

6.

At the GatesGardens of Grief | Century Media
The debut EP by Swedeath legends At the Gates on 12″ 180-gram vinyl. What’s not to like?

7.

Poison IdeaJust to Get Away/Kick Out the Jams 7″ | TKO Records
This 7″ picture disc features Poison Idea’s “Just to Get Away” from the unfuckwithable Feel the Darkness and a rad cover of “Kick Out the Jams” by the MC5. If any or all of those words excite you, pick this one up.

8.

HawkwindHawkwind | Rhino
SPACE ROCKIN’. Rhino is reissuing Hawkwind’s 1970 debut LP. This is a pre-Lemmy album, so Motörhead completists will have to wait for the reissue of Doremi Faso Latido. Regardless, Hawkwind is still a jammy little album so don’t sleep on this one.

9.

CarcassChoice Cuts | Century Media
This 2004 compilation features songs from each Carcass work (except Surgical Steel, adoy). Century Media is reissuing the thing on 2 x 12″ vinyl which is a cool but also kind of an excessive and unnecessary thing to do. But I suppose that’s the point of every Record Store Day release.

10.

Steve ReichMusic for 18 Musicians | Nonesuch
This isn’t even a little metal but it rules. Buy it for me, please.

11.

LeatherfaceRazor Blades & Aspirin 1990-1993 | Fire Records
This 3 LP set includes the first 3 albums from underground UK punks Leatherface. Remastered, full of bonus material, and limited to only 500 copies, this one is gonna go fast. Bonus fact: Leatherface is sweet as hell. If you like tasty guitars, listen to Mush, which will be included in this collection.

12.

NightsatanNightsatan and the Loops of Doom | Death Waltz/Mondo
This is a weird one. Nightsatan and the Loops of Doom is the soundtrack to a low budget 80s movie that never existed. If cheesy, dark synth pop is your thing (c’mon, it’s fun), check this one out. Sample the Bandcamp to get a taste of the lazer-y pleasures that await you:

13.

VenomFrom the Very Depths | Spinefarm
The latest LP from heavy metal forefathers is available on 2×12″ vinyl. Opening single “Grinding Teeth” goes REALLY hard, so I don’t give a shit about all the bickering you nerds do about this band.

14.

Path of ResistanceWho Dares Wins | Victory Records
Shortly after the dudes from Earth Crisis put out the seminal hardcore album Destroy the Machines, they got into a serious van accident. Dennis Merrick couldn’t play drums for several months due to his injuries, so the other Earth Crisis guys recorded Who Dares Wins under the moniker Path of Resistance. It’s OK.

15.

ClutchFrom Beale Street to Oblivion | Weathermaker Music
The 2007 album was the 8th full-length from Maryland’s own #hardrock stalwarts. Available on 2 x 12″ purple vinyl for extra hard rockiness.

16.

DRILive at CBGB’s 1984 | Beer City Skateboards
Now remastered and available on vinyl for the first time ever, you can listen to the CBGB’s show from DRI’s “Violent Pacification” tour. Or, you can watch the entire performance on YouTube! The future is fucking awesome. I’m a big DRI fan but this is the domain of hardcore hardcore-era DRI fans only.

17.

Mastodon – Atlanta | Warner Bros
If you’re a real-deal big Mastodon boy, you can pick up this 12″ picture disc of the song “Atlanta”, released earlier this year on the Adult Swim Single Series.

18.

Everytime I DieSalem 7″ | Epitaph
This 4 track EP features a cover of Nirvana‘s “Tourettes” so this is probs a must-have for hardcore ETiD fans.

19.

Publicist UKOriginal Demo Recordings 7″ | Static Tension Recordings
The band’s debut single out on vinyl. Check out MoshOff’s review of it here.

20.

SWANS – 12″ EP | Young God
A reissue of the first EP Swans ever released. Included in this list because our Finnish readers will want it.

21.

Jungle RotTerror Regime | Victory Records
Their 2013 LP issued on vinyl. If you dig Terror Regime and if your wildest dream is to hear it on vinyl, here’s your chance to dance.

22.

SlayerWhen the Stillness Comes 7″ | Nuclear Blast

This fuckin’ Saturday, the Kerry Krew is releasing a brand fuckin’ new SLAAAAAAYER song so get up fuckin’ early and pick up this 7″ so you can fuckin’ hear it! Or wait until 9:15 AM and someone will have this on the the Pirate Bay.

23.

The Dead MilkmenBig Lizard in my Backyard | Asbestos
Pick up a vinyl reissue of the 1985 debut LP from these jokey Pennsylvania punks that for some reason either didn’t know about or didn’t believe in guitar distortion. I thought I wanted this but then I just listened to “Bitchin’ Camaro” on Spotify once and I’m good.

24.

Electric WizardTime to Die | Spinefarm
Last year’s full-length from doomlords Electric Wizard on 2 x 12″ vinyl. The few tracks I’ve heard lead me to believe this album is a great cure for insomnia so I just might have to cop this one.

25.

Stone SourMeanwhile in Burbank… | Atlantic/Roadrunner
That dude from Slipknot‘s other band covers Alice in Chains, Judas Priest, Kiss, Metallica, and Black Sabbath. Theoretically it could be good?

26.

Blackberry SmokeWood, Wire & Roses | Concord
I don’t know anything about Blackberry Smoke but Earache seems to like them so they must be metal, right?

27.

Foo FightersSongs from the Laundry Room | RCA
Dave Grohl poops out another Thing for Gen Xers to fawn all over. I don’t know what’s on this chunk of wax and I don’t care.

28.

Mark KozelekWhat’s Next to the Moon? | Badman Recording Co.
This is an album the Sun Kil Moon dude released in 2001. It consists of “drastically rearranged acoustic covers of Bon Scott-era AC/DC songs.” It could be the best collection of compositions this century but I’m still not gonna listen to it.

29.

Rise AgainstEco-Terrorist in Me 7″ | Interscope
Rise Against are back with *loud farting noises*

30.

V/A: Sons of AnarchySongs of Anarchy Vol. 2 & 3–Seasons 5 and 6 | Friday Music
SDMF GETCHAPULL. I’m a motherfuckn #BERZERKER and i dont ware these colors2 look #cool. I wear this fake biker gang cut bcuz I am a #TUFF #SOB.
/purchases a 1500cc Harley as a first bike like a REAL MAN.
//dies

31.

The Devil Wears PradaSouth of the City 7″ | Atlantic/Roadrunner
I honestly had no idea The Devil Wears Prada was still a band. I assume this new song features a heartfelt clean-sung chorus that doesn’t fit the rest of the song.

32.

AtreyuSo Others May Live 7″ | Spinefarm
“7 inch vinyl featuring the exclusive physical release of the band’s first new song in 6 Years!” If you must, you can listen to it here, but it’s terrible so you shouldn’t.

33.

IslanderViolence & Destruction | Victory Records
For a second I thought the dude from No Clean Singing started a band. He did not, and I’m a dummy. Anyway, if you like embarrassing nü-metal revivalism go ahead and pick this coaster up.

34.

In This MomentSex Metal Barbie 7″ | Atlantic
Are there enough vinyl aficionados out there that are ALSO date rape enthusiasts to warrant this release?

35.

311Grifter/Who’s Got The Herb? 7″ | Legacy
I got your herb right here:


Record Store Day is Saturday April 18th. Check out the full list of releases here.

*My slapdick band has an album available on cassette here.

  • Dagon

    What about getting a huge SoA backpiece like the characters in the show? That’s dedication.

    I long for a place with fewer taxes and a better economic climate (ie: my degree and a job) so that I can partake in events like this. I like records. I just can’t buy them.

  • Dr. Dubz

    Imma jam that Venom song when this Malkuth Grimoire album finally ends.

    • The Beargod

      Spoiler: It won’t.

    • Dagon

      Is the use of “finally” an indicator of unhappiness?

      • Dr. Dubz

        No, I’ve been enjoying it. But this sucker is hefty.

        • IT GOATS IT GOATS IT GOATS

          Hefty in denseness or in length?

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™

            Spoiler: both.

          • Dr. Dubz

            Girth.

    • Tyree Imbruglia

      Grinding Teeth rips. WOOOOOAAAAHHHH!!!!!

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      It’s a weighty tome for sure

  • I hope you meet Dave Grohl one day and he’s extra cool to you.

    • That would piss me off so much.

      • “Hey, man. Great Code Orange shirt. They’re really awesome. Also, have this ice cold beer on this incredibly hot day.”

        • Dr. Dubz

          Dave Grohl saw Joe eating a sandwich alone on a park bench and decided to buy him a hot meal. He then took him to an arcade, and they played Area 51 all day.
          #GrohlFax

          • TheRedman(formerly God ov All)

            And then made sweet sweet love
            #Grohlfanfics

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            Dave Grohl got Lemmy into Rickenbacker…#grohlfacts

          • O SHIT, dawg. You starting a grohlroll?

            Dave Grohl absorbs carbon and emits oxygen. And he knows how to party! #grohlfacts

          • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

            Growl knows what Bo doesn’t know.

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            Dave Grohl benches 325…#grohlfacts

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            W drew first blood…lol!

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            Francis “Bean” Grohl…#grohlfacts

          • Mother Shabubu III

            Grohl conspired with Courtney to kill Kurt. That’s why he seems so nice and down-to-Earth, it’s a facade so no one shall ever realize he and Courtney planned it out and divvied up the leftover music and money. The fact that they also “hate each other” is also a front so no one shall ever realize the truth. That’s why the first two Foo Fighters albums sound like an evolution of Nirvana and Foo Fighters haven’t sounded anything remotely like that since. That’s why William Goldsmith left the band #grohlfax . DAMN I’M GOOD!
            http://stream1.gifsoup.com/view3/4325939/damn-i-m-good-o.gif

          • I actually kinda believe this.

          • Mother Shabubu III

            It does sound plausible on some level.

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            That’s too crazy to not be true

          • Big Poppa Penis Pump

            And Courtney’s crazy enough for that to be true. Like Christopher Titus said “Courtney Love’s still at the bottom of the stairs thinking it’s an escalator”.

          • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

            I love Area 51 but I prefer Time Crisis. Also NBA Jam>>>>>>>>

          • Stockhausen

            My perfect day would be watching that from afar, tilting my head, and smiling.

          • Big Poppa Penis Pump

            And Dave Grohl ran off with Taylor Swift after meeting him, and says “hey man, sorry the date didn’t work out. Wanna meet us at Bdubs?”.

      • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

        just awesome….”Dave Grohl poops out another Thing for Gen Xers to fawn all over. I don’t know what’s on this chunk of wax and I don’t care.”….

        • Ted Nü-Djent ™

          That was perhaps the greatest single review of The Foo Fighters I’ve ever read

        • Ted Nü-Djent ™

          That was perhaps the greatest single review of The Foo Fighters I’ve ever read

          • CONANtheDjentlyFuckingKING

            I got meme attacked by no other an illuminary than the Brian werner of vital remains. Cant take criticism. Here is 2 of the laughable attacks. first one – Conan the “barbarian” ………………..is one considering his social skills………………..& the equally devastating Conan cimmerian ………….has a long ways to go on his meme skills. hahhahahaahaha. I have so much more been brutalized on MS. Laugable.

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            Haha really? Where did that happen?

          • CONANtheDjentlyFuckingKING

            Facebook, i know the shame of it, but it’s too much fun rubbing shoulders with the un-rich & infamous. I layed a a fairly hard meme on him so i had it coming, he and buddies were bawl babies like i thought they would be.

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            On your own wall?

          • CONANtheDjentlyFuckingKING

            no.

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            i concur my good sir…

    • Maik Beninton

      Poor Dave, now he gets so much hate because MS started to suck his dick.

  • Shrimp ov Good Opinions <3

    Slayer is literally the most overrated band in the universe. *braces*

    • IT GOATS IT GOATS IT GOATS

      There’s probably some far away alien specimen that disagrees with that.

    • Sir Tapir the Based

      *The Beatles
      FTFY

      • Guacamole Jim
      • KJM

        You spelled “Rolling Stones” wrong.

        • Sir Tapir the Based

          I dislike Rolling Stones more, but I think that Le Beateles are more overrated.

          • KJM

            I have but a handful of Stones songs that I really like, and I’m a big George Harrison fan.

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            Paint It Black is pretty much the only RS song I like.

          • The Beargod

            Kaapataan lentokone Moskovaan is better.

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            Kai fucking Aalto is on one of the youtube videos for the song.

          • The Beargod

            Hell! Really!? I’ve managed to miss that completely.

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            Only a picture of him using magneettishyppnoottiskatsetta

          • Shrimp ov Good Opinions <3

            I actually just google translated magneettishyppnoottiskatsetta, I think the result is far more confusing.

          • KJM

            That’s a good one. I get grief from Stones obsessives when I say the early 70s Mick Taylor period is my fave.

          • Tyree Imbruglia

            It’s all about that disco era brah.

          • KJM

            I’m coming to your emotional rescue as we speak.

          • Tyree Imbruglia
          • KJM

            Eh, still better than Jagger. ^_^

          • Tyree Imbruglia
          • KJM

            Oh good god.

          • Tyree Imbruglia

            Yeah. Fucking horrifying.

          • What do you think about this new hipster hero?
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4R8HTIgHUU

          • Tyree Imbruglia

            I never really got into Bowie’s music. Just never did much for me.

          • Me neither, but I was really surprised on how much a lot of people idolized him with his last record.

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            Bowie is love, Bowie is life.

          • KJM

            I’m a fan and I didn’t care. His best stuff is decades behind him.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™

            His newest album The Next Day is pretty jammin’.

          • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

            I love David Bowie! Station To Station is an awesome album.

          • Bowie >>>>>>>>>
            #ToiletConfessions

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            Pre 1980 for me…

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            Sometimes it’s really easy to love you.

          • KJM

            Bowie is legend.

          • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

            The only good song he did in his solo career was that Maggie song.

          • JWG
          • Sir Tapir the Based

            Kiss <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
            I would rather listen to Jagger all day than listen to a minute of Kiss

          • KJM

            I like KISS the same way I still like Star Wars, especially since I was 10 years old in 1977. One the 80s hit I was done.

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            Revenge is kewl and Lick It Up and COTN were 80’s releases that I enjoy

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            Revenge is kewl and Lick It Up and COTN were 80’s releases that I enjoy

          • KJM

            COTN is good.

          • Lacertilian

            Twice today you have on this Lizard’s team

          • CyberneticOrganism
          • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

            Such a cheesy song and video. It’s one of the few songs I enjoy of theirs though.

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            Best album…

          • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

            I like all of their eras as they all have had good songs. I don’t have a favorite album of theirs though.

          • Lacertilian

            same, I also enjoy Gimme Shelter.
            That’s that band covered for me

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            Hey, hey, hey, hey boys now don’t squabble. They’re both as overrated as each other.

    • Yep

    • Reichsmarschall Dean von Steel

      Sometimes I show up and read stuff like this and it makes me want to fight motherfuckers.

      • Tyree Imbruglia

        KICK HIS HIS SHRIP ASS SEA BASS!!!

        • Reichsmarschall Dean von Steel
          • JamesGrimm

            this is your god now!

          • Tyree Imbruglia

            Lloyd and Harry.

          • Lacertilian

            MOCK, yeah
            ING, yeah

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            God dammit if I can remember what this is from

    • Seeing as any sort of extreme metal band owes it’s existence to Slayer in some way or another, I’d have to disagree.

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      Oh you Prawn ov Shitty Opinions

  • Tyree Imbruglia

    Venom & Electric Wizard make Natalie very not torn.

    • Suddenly I want to eat ice cream with you and laugh about the dressing choices of the people in the street.

      • Tyree Imbruglia

        You’re a little late, I’m already torn.

  • The Beargod

    And no mention of the hard work I saw writing about Nightsatan.

    I don’t even know why do I bother for you, Joe.
    You don’t even love me anymore!

  • TheRedman(formerly God ov All)


    I honestly had no idea The Devil Wears Prada was still a band. I assume this new song features a heartfelt clean-sung chorus that doesn’t fit the rest of the song.”

    /dead

    there were times when I genuinely tried to give TDWP an honest try. The only thing I enjoyed of theirs is their Zombie EP primarily because it had no stupid clean chorus’s

    • Dr. Dubz

      A good friend of mine kept trying to get me to listen to the Zombie EP years ago. It didn’t live up to his proclamations.

      • TheRedman(formerly God ov All)

        It’s pretty much all I can stomach

    • The Beargod

      That seems to be the only release anyone enjoys from them.

    • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

      They’re touring that EP and going to my area. I’m seeing Testament/Exodus instead.

      • TheRedman(formerly God ov All)

        Good decision.

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      I honestly couldn’t listen to a band that named themselves TDWP

      P.S. ¢:::::::::::::::3

  • The Beargod

    I must admit that I have had mixed feelings about RSD before this year. This year there are a couple of releases I’d like to snag, but I am leaning on negative feelings nevertheless.
    Cons overweigh the pros.

    • I think my favorite RSD pick up over the years is the Empire Records Soundtrack.

      • The Beargod

        That Hawkwind might turn out to be the first ever RSD release I buy.

      • CT-12

        I picked up the GZA’s “Liquid Swords” box set last year or the year before that and spent over a hundred bucks on it. I love that album so much, but it really wasn’t fucking worth it (they cut out the bonus track and didn’t really do anything cool with the chessboard and additional shit included). I do enjoy my Type O/Deep Purple 7 inch though

        • HA! Likewise, I enjoy my Dinosaur Jr/The Cure split.

          I tend to shy away from the big budget items like box sets. My normal collecting habits are already pricy enough.

        • Lacertilian

          Liquid Swords is pretty much my go to hip-hop album.
          I really wanted that box with the chessboard etc. Is the bonus track you’re referring to the Killah Priest one?

          • CT-12

            Dude, the box set really isn’t worth it. I thought they might have the pieces be members of Wu Tang or ninjas or some shit, or they would’ve done something cool with the board, but alas, no, just insanely shitty, cheap pieces with the bottom of the box serving as the chessboard (so you can’t even comfortably play it). Pretty fucking weak. And the bonus track that was missing was “Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth” or whatever. You’d think if I was gonna fork out for the set they’d leave that song on at least.

          • Lacertilian

            Damn, that’s fucked. Yeah, that B.I.B.L.E track was all Killah Priest, I didn’t really think it fit the album too well anyway, hence the bonus track listing I guess.

      • Big Poppa Penis Pump
  • Guacamole Jim

    How did you not do this for the picture:

    • FUCK

      • Shrimp ov Good Opinions <3

        I just noticed that every dude in your band has their name starting with J, is that a joke or just a coincidence?

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            Does that mean that I could join your band?

        • Side note: The first “band” I played in was in 5th grade and we used all the first letters of our names to form the band name: WAK DJ (pronounced whack dj). With I still think is a tremendous name. Lol.

          • Akerskronks ov Steele

            An old band of mine was desperately trying to find a name and I immediately saw a ladder and suggested we call ourselves that. Guess nobody else in the band shared any sort of indie rock sensibility I might have pretended to exhibit.

    I had no idea I gave a shit about MDC until now. This record is neato! Like a less zany All.

        I was really confused when people talked about Leatherface because I was mixing up Leatherface and Leathermouth, the surprisingly excellent hardcore band Frank Iero from My Chemical Romance started a few years ago.

    I immediately loved Nightsatan. Plus, a billion cool points for looking like this:

    • It’s like Mad Max meets cheesy Power Rangers villain costumes. So rad.

      See the movie!

        Just found the trailer, sweet!

    • Big Poppa Penis Pump

      Wasn’t the guy on the right from Big Bad Beetle Borgs?

  • I really want that Brand New reissue. Might have to do me some huntin’ this Saturday.

  • Celtic Frosty

    Meh. I’ve been flushing RSD for a few years now. Just haven’t seen anything worth getting in line at the crack of dawn for. Maybe I’m just ol….

    …hey. HEY! Yeah, you. Is this your lawn? No? Then get off of it!

  • Virgil the Ghost Poet

    You forgot the Ministry box set!!!

    • I did. TBH, I couldn’t think of anything to say about it. I’ve never jived with any Jourgenson stuff.

      • Virgil the Ghost Poet

        You could say: old junkies old work isbeing re released again with a book! Still better than 311.

        • Big Poppa Penis Pump

          If you were closer to Chi, I’d say pick up a copy of The Chicago Reader. They have a huge thing on Record Store Day every year, and what rare stuff to score. You’ll definitely see the jazz and blues collectors out in full force!

            My little town sucks.

          • Big Poppa Penis Pump

            Not missing much. Rahm’s back in office, so expect shit to get much worse from here now that he’s got his post-election hard on.

      • Ted Nü-Djent ™

        Not even Psalm 69 or TMIATTTT?

        • I’ve tried but it just doesn’t do anything for me.

            Well I’ll be buggered.

  • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

    The Atreyu, WWF and 311 things excite me as well as the George Clinton box set

  • old_man_doom

    Stoked for Nightsatan and Hawkwind (because I am a fuckin’ weirdo and I love synths). I would be excited for the Mastodon 12″, but it’s kinda boring honestly.

  • Feel The Fucking Darkness

    Good luck trying to get any of these.

    • in all seriousness, is it impossible to find them?

      • I’ve done this a few years. Generally, there are one or two items that EVERYONE wants and you won’t get it. For the most part, I’ve had good luck doe.

        • old_man_doom

          Last year there were about 5 copies of Type O Negative’s “Slow, Deep, and Hard” that nobody wanted at my local shop.

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            GOT ONE!

        • Big Poppa Penis Pump

          I’ve only went to one Record Store Day ever, and that was to score a VERY rare Violet Arcana CD that’s been out of print since about ’96 (I don’t go for rare metal stuff so much as I do out of print industrial and electro, since I grew up on that partly and almost all of that is long gone). Which I got for a whole .99! Woohoo!

      • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

        I went last year got in line and waited for about an hour got in they were overstocked with the metal stuff. When I left there was no line. Sooo the moral of the story: I could have slept in not waited in line and still scored Jungle Rot…LOL!!!

  • Stockhausen

    Music For 18 Musicians RULES. Steve Reich is cooler than all of you.

  • BLOODBEARDE

    wtf is this, Joe? I came home after an 11hr day to read this!?

    *enrampagement intensifies

    edit: the Clutch and ETID are the only LPs worth a damn here.

    • What would you rather read instead?

      • BLOODBEARDE

        I was rly just kidding. Something with bewbs maybe? More bewbs, for sure. I was also just kinda mad I missed all the Bloodborne discussion earlier.

          …And a game I’ll never play, because I’ve still got about 15 years by my best estimate before I run out of now-last-gen games I haven’t got to yet.

  • KJM

    Quick reminder that Daredevil kicks much ass. Message ends.

    • cosigned. also, Marvel’s Agent Carter is like 10x better than it sounds on paper.

      • KJM

        Agreed! I’m a pretty big fan of the MCU in general.

  • OldMetalHead

    I haven’t owned a record player in like 40 years. I guess I’ll just have to wait for the digital release of the new Slayer song.

  • Reichsmarschall Dean von Steel

    Needz moar tremolo and blast beats. Not enough Satan.

    In unrelated but slightly more serious news: Fucking Century Media still hasn’t shipped the Obscura reissues that were supposed to ship on March 31st. But people all over the interwebs have already received their copies from Amazon. What the fuck? The label that produced the reissue (who happens to be one of the biggest labels in metal) can’t get the CDs out to the people that preordered them directly from the label, yet you can buy one on Amazon and get it overnight if you want. I’ve never ordered from CM directly before, and I never will again. I cut small and/or underground labels some slack when they have delays, but CM has no excuse–especially when large retailers are already selling the product! Ridiculous!

    • CT-12

      DUUUUUDDEEEE, THE SAME SHIT HAPPENED TO ME!!!!!! I still haven’t got my copy and I’ve already seen the fucker in stores!!! So pissed dude. The weird thing is I got my Voivod/At the Gates 7in. the day it was released. I thought the same shit though, like “what the fuck, this is Century Media for chrissake!”. Whenever I’ve preordered from Relapse, I get my shit days before the album drops in stores. Shit is frustrating to no fucking end.

    • CT-12

      Also, don’t order from Agonia. They fucked me when I preordered the last Ephel Duath CD (literally took months to get the album after numerous emails bitching and complaining to them).

      • Reichsmarschall Dean von Steel

        Yeah, it’s super frustrating. i also preordered the new Tribulation album from them at the same time. Who knows when I’ll get the two CDs! You honestly don’t expect delays and sub par service like that from CM. I’ll never order direct from CM again–not when Amazon can get me the same album, for the same price, when it is actually supposed to be delivered.

    • Big Poppa Penis Pump

      What, did they start working with Blake Judd again?

    • Scrimm

      Saw it in the store here too.

  • Big Poppa Penis Pump

    Damn, haven’t heard Poison Idea in ages! Very underrated band. Beats the shit out of Dead fucking Milkmen, for those who actually remember ‘Punk Rock Girl’, one of the most fucking annoying (non-nu metal) songs to ever come out of the 90’s.

    • more beer

      I`m seeing them in October really looking forward to that.

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      Feel The Darkness is one of my most favourite releases ever

    • KJM

      Late 80s. How do I know? Because that fucking song was on the monthly playlist when I worked at Strawberries Records(1987-89). I heard it at least 3 times a day, 5 days a week, for a month(maybe two).

  • CT-12

    Unrelated, but I’ve been seriously bumming after finding out some fucked up shit about people in my local scene and in metal in general. Been a real mood killer and I can’t enjoy music when I listen to it. That being said, I just started working out again after my foot has healed, and I feel a lot better. Still feel a little depressed and pissed and sad and whatnot, but it’s helping me turn around my mood, and I’d recommend it to anybody who’s feeling down (as I heard with Link the other day).

    • JWG

      I was excited to have finally found a band from B.C. that my metal-loving friends from the Pacific Northwest didn’t already know about. Then I did the tiniest bit of digging ( I looked on the Metal Archives) and figured out that their demo was released in cooperation with a “label” whose only other signee is a 2-decades-old one-man NSBM project (that was a full band until 2006-ish) from the same town.

      Since I can find no public information at all about members of the band that I found first I can’t be exactly sure, but the risk that one is actually a sneaky way to get the NSBM one noticed is more than enough reason to wish I could scrub it from my Bandcamp history.

      • CT-12

        I hate shit like that. Weirdly enough, your scenario seems quite similar to mine.

  • Got to hear the ETID because they never disappoint. Want to hear Slayer for the lols.

  • Ted Nü-Djent ™

    Joe, that SOA blurb is totally apt. I may or may not have commented that BLS Facebook posts read like the script of a bad SOA episode.

    • just don’t be hating on my new BLS shirt

      • Ted Nü-Djent ™

        Naw way dawg

    Nightsatan and the Loops of Doom is actually a soundtrack to a movie that exists. A short film of the same name lasting 24 min which is included on DVD with the release. Here’s the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=opD1q0KDzZY

    I find ITM’s release being just one step above of 311’s infinitely amusing.
