I’m still collecting records, although a bit more on the background, hence my relatively long gap in posting. Just haven’t found anything exciting enough to write about. But the next two records are definitely worth having a closer write-up about.
The Wild Style version of the up until it’s reissue unknown to me NEW BREED Tape Compilation, was taking a place on my wantlist. I actually didn’t know the compilation since I’m fairly young and not listening to Hardcore when it was released. And although I bought the regular version at Good Life, it was Marcus from The Endless Quest who let me knew the existence of a colored version. I immediately wanted it big time.
So a few years later it’s in my collection already. That didn’t take so long, I guess. I saw it for sale and realized that chances of obtaining a collectible release only grow thinner the later after it’s release date, so I acted fast and bought at will.
Blue vinyl and silk-screened sleeve. “Wild Style” design by Chaka Malik.
Numbered 145 out of 200 copies
Complete with original and creative artwork and lyrics in a multi-page booklet
It’s a real nicely done version. The front of the cover is screened with a thick layer of silky ink. The back is -as you can see hand numbered. And has the song-list glued on it. This is a very work intensive sleeve. The vinyl comes on ultra-clear blue vinyl. Awesomeness!!
Also the booklet is richly illustrated with drawings and pictures along with the lyrics. Since I bought it from the executive producer, I had the opportunity to add another of his releases the shopping cart. It’s a reissue of the ABSOLUTION four songs ep. Also very beautifully lay-outed. And totally limited gold vinyl. Absolution’s the very first band on the list of the compilation. Seems like Ryan is doing a run of reissues of bands featured on the compilation amongst the clothing he makes.
With logo-stamped dustsleeve
Gold vinyl limited to 60 pieces only!!
It also exists on purple vinyl out of 150 copies.As I was willing to tip you that they were doing pre-orders for the Altercation 7inch, I realized it already sold out entirely it seems. That was quick, because when I bought this one during the week they told me to launch pre-orders in the weekend. And now it’s totally gone during the time of shipping.
The musicians choose in this album for a more Heavy Metal approach. What's unusual for H8000 bands. As most of them play extremer Metal. Though together with the sound of the female vocals, not that unusual. Lyrics are well written and are still relevant. The ethical and moral side are strong.
