We’re back with an awesome new RECORD OF THE WEEK of the blog for all you vinyl-fiends out there! Kicking it off this week is a gorgeous repress of MASTODON’s ‘Call of the Mastodon’ LP, which features a collection of the band’s earlier demo, 7″, and EP tracks. Relapse absolutely killed it with this repress, just check out those colored vinyl choices! That ‘Royal Blue’ / ‘Gold’ AsideBside version couldn’t be more perfect for this release, and the ‘Red(ish)’ and ‘Ultra Clear’ w/ Splatter versions look incredible too. This is a definite must-have for any Mastodon fans out there… don’t sleep on this repress!

———————————— Honorable Mentions ———————————————
The first honorable mention this time around comes from MAGNETIC EYE Records and the almighty SUMMONER! The bands new ‘Atlantian’ LP was given the full-treatment: 300gsm Semi Gloss Jackets, Printed Innersleeves, and three different eye-catching colored vinyl configurations! My favorite has got to be that ‘Grimace Purple’/'Aqua Blue’ AsideBside version with Silver, Gold, and Black Splatter… WHOA.

You can NOT go wrong with a split 12″ LP between CANNABIS CORPSE and GHOUL, just look at this thing! The Black-in-’Kelly Green’ Color-in-Color vinyl is just perfect, and ‘Splatterhash’ is probably the best album title ever. Get into it!

This triple-gatefold LP release from Pittsburgh’s PUNCHLINE is certainly an impressive one… Between the reverse-board triple gatefold jackets and the 4 different 180-gram vinyl choices, this is one hell of a package!
