I really want to build up a decent post with the pressing info of the AMENRA Prayers 09-10 LP. But since the label doesn’t want to cooperate, I do it this way. My question now is if you have any information about this release on GRAVE ESCAPE Records or even pictures please hit me up here in the comments or my email.
So far me and a fellow collector have this information available:
We think that the record was pressed only once on CLEAR and on BLACK vinyl by the pressing plant. BUT that the label, who screenprinted the record, did it in several release rounds. These release rounds differ from each other because of the dates and places where the record was released. AND also because of the several art-prints and sleeves.
2004: 1st release round
+ unique BLACK screenprint: namely Bird-beast with RA logo underneath
Bird with RA logo screen print
The sleeve is also unique and was numbered out of 100
Sleeve for CLEAR vinyl version: Band logo + graveyard print
Cross screenprint in RED (TOURPRESS, 100 made and numbered)
Regular black copies with NO screenprint but same sleeve and not numbered
2010: final release round
Restpressing: no sceenprint, just blank labels (like a testpress)
Red Cross (like tourpress copies)
RED cross print cfr. tourpress
Black beast (similar to clear wax version, but no “RA” logo underneath this time)
Bird-beast but no RA logo
Sleeve: new artwork (combination of toursleeve “bird on cross” and “graveyard” sleeve from the first release round)
Graveyard + bird on cross sleeve
This is what I think it is for now, if you have pictures of your record or sleeves that aren’t mentioned here, hit me up by email. Or even exact pressing info,it would be very much appreciated!
The review of the 1994 album Senseless by Abhinanda. Information about the 90s Swedish Hardcore scene in general also added. Including all vinyl versions and the compact disc version. Audio samples also added.
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.
