Grief-Come to Grief 2x 12"

When I found out that Throne records from Spain were putting this classic album out on vinyl I was stoked. They announced it a year or so before they even started taking pre-orders so after a while this seemed like it was never going to happen. Anyway after the record was available to pre-order there was a delay at the pressing plant which took a few months and then I thought my package had been lost in the post when I found out they were all sent out a bit back. Thankfully my package showed up this week. It's a one time pressing of 666 copies and I opted for the two colour editions (222 of each, the last lot being on black). It's one heavy package and I don't just mean the music. As you can see above it comes in a lush gatefold sleeve and also includes a nice print (see below)
. Also the colours are orange and black/blue splatter.

It does sound good too. I've had the CD for years so this was great to finally see (and hear) it on wax. In case you slept on it, this is one of the most heaviest, most miserable albums ever. I love it!!! Have to say with the currency being the way it is and heavy packaging it wasn't too cheap but having pre-ordered it ages back it would have cost me a lot more now as the Euro/pound thing has gotten even worse since.
