Two Good Life Recordings titles I needed back in my collection. Of which one I thought to had lost forever. The Deathrow Earth LP with the Thor cover is one of those special Good Life Recordings releases because they didn’t focus on limited editions, they only sporadically entered that game. They have written more history with the quality and the kind of the music they released and spread to a wider audience.

One of my favourite limited editions ever. Because I like to compare Liar with Thor; the god of war and thunder. Musically this takes Liar to the extreme side with more technical metal. And with the arrival of Lennart in the band, they had two guitarist from that point.
The other record I needed, was the one of the last ever copies Good Life sold of the orange “The Other Cheek” LP. This one seems less rare than the black version, if you look at the quantity for sale on Discogs. So I think for this one, black is rarer. This record is the the first one with Michael in the band, so Josh could focus on more technical instead of rhythmic guitarplay. The record has the highly sought after cassette demo on it. And a radio introduction of the Blackened Persistance CD in Dutch. The back cover photo with Josh and Pierre is a time and history capsule of Congress. Why is hard to explain, I just think it tells and speaks so much. Another photograph well-done. I would have made it bigger on the cover, so cool!
