Bush – “Razorblade Suitcase (In Addition)”
No fear, we’re back with some insane vinyl on this week’s RECORD OF THE WEEK Blog!
Twenty years ago, BUSH bravely followed up their 1994 multi-platinum juggernaut of a debut, ‘Sixteen Stone’, with a darker, more cerebral sophomore effort in ‘Razorblade Suitcase’. Produced by Steve Albini and recorded at London’s Abbey Road Studios, the album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, selling 293,000 copies during its first week of release in the US and staying alive with hit singles “Greedy Fly” and “Swallowed”. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of this 3x platinum album, the band has announced a deluxe, remastered LP edition titled ‘Razorblade Suitcase (In Addition)’ via ROUND HILL/ZUMA ROCK RECORDS. In addition to the original remastered album, the reissue will also include four rare bonus tracks: “Old”, “Broken TV”, “Bubbles”, and “Sleeper” on a double ‘Black’ and ‘White’ AsideBside vinyl color. The metallic foil jacket features reinterpreted artwork by designer Shaun Durkan, and a fold out poster with never-before-printed lyrics and album liner notes from producer Steve Albini.

ABSU is an American extreme metal band from Dallas, Texas. Their demos and first album leaned towards death metal, but evolved more towards a black metal and thrash metal which includes elements of Celtic and folk music (and later, elements of jazz fusion, progressive rock and psychedelic music) which the band calls “Mythological Occult Metal”. Their lyrical themes are esoteric, including themes of Celtic, Sumerian and Mesopotamian myths and legends, alchemy, numerology, magick, and sorcery. Coming at you from deep down in THE CRYPT!

ISSUES frontman TYLER CARTER took the plunge into a solo endeavor in 2015 with the release of his debut EP, “Leave Your Love,” on RISE RECORDS. Rising to fame as the frontman of Woe, Is Me and the popular hard rock outfit ISSUES, his R&B vocals on top of metal and heavy rock music allowed him to carve his own brand in the scene. The EP highlights Carter’s smooth delivery and infectious tone so grab a copy on “EASTER YELLOW” & “ULTRA CLEAR” Half-N-Half or “EASTER YELLOW” & “ULTRA CLEAR” with BLACK SPLATTER Half-N-Half vinyl from RISE RECORDS!
