Re: New Purchases/Acquisitions I bought oh I can't even remember what the album is anymore I have that many of them I can't remember where half of them came from (although compared to most people on here such as yourself my album collection is miniscule) from ebay, the seller claimed it was "new and sealed" it wasn't, it was severly scratched to the point of being totally unplayable, since then I have only bought three second hand cds, two of which were Angel Witch albums which I made sure to play before I bought them, garage sales, another good place to find cool stuff, the other was Slayer - Hell Awaits, again tried before I bought, otherwise I only buy cds new from the store and I always keep receipts just in case

Re: New Purchases/Acquisitions I always keep the receipts too, and when I have to do returns people are usually cool, but it's still frustrating, especially when you're enjoying listening to the album, when it starts skipping and you have to return it. The only time I have ever had an issue with an eBay return is when some douchebag sold me a bootleg claiming it was legitimate, and he wouldn't give me a refund because "bootlegs are collectors items too", according to him. I showed that to the claims department at Paypal and they refunded my money instantly, I just had to return the product to him in Australia.

I recall you telling me about it prior to practice a while back but I forgot what it was. That is a major let down when you buy something (new or otherwise) and it's defective. I purchased the second The Howling Void CD a few months back from a local CD shop and it was defective. I took it back and they ordered a new copy for me and three days later I was a happy customer. Accidents happen but when someone out and out lies that's just lame.

Re: New Purchases/Acquisitions It was Anacrusis' Suffering Hour, a pretty rare thrash album that I was thrilled to get for $20, as it usually goes for around $80-100. When he started telling me that bootlegs were collectors items, I told him that it's only worth the tracks on the album, and since those same tracks are available for free download from the band's website, there was no reason for me to spend $20 on a disc that I could have burned myself from downloads for free, which would actually be more in line with what the band would want if they put those tracks up.

Re: New Purchases/Acquisitions pretty damn cheap, Iced Earth played two gigs back to back down here last month, tickets for the actual shows were twenty dollars or something like that, problem is they were not playing in my home state and domestic flights cost a little bit so overnight accomodation + flights + tickets for the show I was looking at over five hundred bucks and that's before food and drink and merch, just not worth it

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
