Going to be picking up a copy of the NPA bootleg CD sometime this week.
My screwy Taiwan pirated version of Machina | The Machines of God has yet to be added… [/quote:2durbw2v]
Oops, indeed, sorry! Here it is:

The CD says made in Taiwan, but who knows with these screwy things… China it is then!

That’s not a cherub, that’s a putto… but the artwork is great.
"In modern English the word is usually used for what are strictly putti, baby or toddler angels in art."
"modern English usage has blurred the distinction, except that in the plural, "the Cherubim" refers to the literal biblical angels, while "cherubs" is used more often to refer to the childlike representations (putti) or in figurative senses."
Do we really need to get into semantics… [/quote:zps1lstc]
It’s simply a matter of correctness… just because people mostly use it wrong isn’t reason to keep doing so. Besides, some people think the cherubim had four wings and four faces, each one a different animal. Imagine the artwork with that instead of the wimpy kid with duck wings. Awesome.
I think right now I prefer the first EP, but I don’t know if that’s fair to say just yet because the first has had time to grow on me while The Solstice Bare is still a new entity to me.
Man, this is hard!
Deep Purple (I’m going to see them in concert next weekend, btw, in Germany. )
Great stuff, especially URIAH HEEP!
… and then a 12" picture disc with all 5 songs and a nice sleeve.[/quote:1i1acq28]
Is the vinyl like the pics above?
yes it’s just like it. dual unicorns pulling a chariot and a cherub in the sky on the aside. The bside has the astronomy chart.[/quote:1i1acq28]

For some reason Amazon.ca decided it’d ship this item in mid-December. So I cancelled my order with them and ordered it from Amazon.com and they had it shipped before the end of the day…
No shipping confirmation from Amazon yet.
I love the artwork on those ads.
Preorder available on Amazon!

Just found a copy of Halloween Tools for ten bucks. On its way to me as we speak!
Been listening to ABSURD all day, especially Thuringian Pagan Madness.
My family and I live in Canada, but we’re originally from France.
I was actually listening to the SMASHING PUMPKINS long before black and death metal. They were one of the first bands I liked. I started off listening to rock. I always liked the heavier bands like SP and ALICE IN CHAINS, and my taste in music kept getting heavier and heavier until I found my niche in black and death metal, but I never stopped listening to SP – they have a timeless feel to them that transcends so many genres and emotions. Their music has helped me through some more difficult times that, for whatever reason, the music of other bands couldn’t help me with. So they’ll always be my favourite band on a musical and emotional level.
Please tell me this is not only classy, but also good, and worthwhile a listen!
Abigail (Jpn)/Ironfirst (Sgp)/Deiphago (Phl) – Holocaustik Metal Sexxxekution Whoreslaughters
I remember a documentary on Dutch tv of a year ago, or a little more, and it was about young metal bands from places where one wouldn’t expect to find them. So they came from Russia, China, Japan, and some other country… Kosova I believe. The Chinese or Japanese (sorry, can’t remember) metal band was very good! So I’m curious to see what is metal today in Japan, Singapore and Philippines…
And since I’m very fond of French rock bands (Noir Desir, for example) I want to try Amaka Hahina (Fra) – Aheah Saergathan! also…
You have some bad luck – the ABIGAIL/IRONFIST/DEIPHAGO split CD is the one out of my entire collection that my computer won’t read properly. I sent you a message with a link to ABIGAIL and some other southeast Asian bands.
The Southeast Asian scene is musically very violent – many bands had a chaotic, raw sound in the late eighties/early nineties that continues through to today. It’s always been a very dirty-sounding style of music coming from there, bands like ABHORER, PROFANCER, etc.
Japanese black and death metal bands are a bit more "normal." ABIGAIL are particularly thrashy and a good rocking time.
French bands can be fantastic – they have a unique perspective on black metal. They often have a nostalgic and melancholic sound to them that isn’t quite reproduced anywhere else. Then there are very strange bands from the Black Legions.
Off the top of my head…
OPERATION WINTER MIST
SISTERS OF MERCY
Ehhh… a lot more that I’m forgetting.
I quite like it; I think I like it more than most of the songs on the first EP, but \"A Stitch in Time\" is still my favourite from the Teargarden by Kaleidyscope series so far. Why do I have a feeling I’m alone on that?
Go for it!

I get a grin browsing that list…
Just the first few cds as an example, the title of the record and the label…
"Blood Bath In The Acid – Headache Records"
"Never-ending Black Torrent Of Death – Todestrieb Records"
"Sacraments Of The Final Atrocity – Morbid Wrath"
"Ultimate Unholy Death – Nuclear War Now! Productions"
I wished I lived a little nearer, so I could visit you, and you might be so kind maybe, to let me have a listen to all of this… A visit of 1.5 week would do, I hope? No seriously, that is an almighty collection, my friend. Be proud of it, and enjoy! [/quote:2liydi6d]
One of my favourites is the CD where one half is by a band called GOAT SEMEN and the other half by ANAL VOMIT. It doesn’t get any classier than that. But never mind the titles, you should see the album covers, haha.
If there’s anything in particular you want to hear let me know, I have all of it ripped and uploading it for you would only take a minute.
I use recordnerd.com for tracking my music collection – the SMASHING PUMPKINS section isn’t too detailed because I just use spfreaks for that.

Danishes. Especially cherry. Mmm.

Filled a couple of holes in the collection there![/quote:1qxliq7w]
Cool items Fred. [/quote:1qxliq7w]
Thanks again for your two! They’ll definitely be well taken care of.
Wow – good eye, Arthur! I keep a list of my stuff online, and it shows 2135 CDs, but that’s up-to-date; when those pictures were taken, it was probably only a few CDs under or over 2000. You can see it if you’re interested. The stuff in there is, for the most part, a very acquired taste, but if you want to hear anything in there let me know and I can hook you up (that goes for you too Ayoe)!
When it comes to the SMASHING PUMPKINS, I only bother getting releases that are fully by them, not compilations that have some of their songs and other bands as well (like the Batman & Robin soundtrack). Unless, of course, the songs on that compilation are unavailable anywhere else, but that’s rarely the case. So my SMASHING PUMPKINS collection could probably have a lot more, but… well, it doesn’t, haha.
Nice pictures, Arthur. I used to live in England, brings back some memories.
Well, here is my music collection – it is mostly black and death metal, but with the occasional rock, ambient, industrial bands. And, of course, about 80 releases by the SMASHING PUMPKINS – they are on the second rack, about the fourth row down where there is a band of uncharacteristically large amount of white and yellow CD spines!
