We’re back yet again with another round of the latest & greatest vinyl for all you wax-fiends out there! Starting things off this week is a gorgeous new reissue of MASTODON’s ‘Leviathan’, courtesy of Relapse Records! The ‘Gold’ / ‘Bone’ AsideBside version looks incredible, as does the ‘Gold’ / ‘Oxblood’ / ‘Aqua Blue’ Tri-Color version- Those colors match the artwork perfectly! This beast of a release also includes a 12″ insert, Spot-PMS printed Gatefold Jackets, and digital downloads! I’m sure fans of the band will be all over this one…Awesome job, Relapse!

20 BUCK SPIN did a killer job with this repress of SAMOTHRACE’s ‘Life’s Trade’ LP. The ‘Gold’ Vinyl w/ Black Splatter pairs perfectly with the art on this one, and those gatefold jackets even include flood black printing on the insides! NICE.
