Goodbye 2015!!!

Another year gone by. Many great records, many great shows and some absolutely amazing scores. This was my 2015.
Best records of 2015.
Another great year for music. I’m hoping I haven’t left anything out but this was the main stuff for me in 2015.
No Tolerance-You walk alone LP
Into another-Omens 12”
Violent Reaction-Marching on LP (Revelation)
Chain rank-Against a wall LP
B Dolan-Kill the wolf
XRepentanceX-The sickness of Eden LP
Bitter end-Illusions of dominance LP
Horisont- Odyssey LP
Best shows of 2015
Some amazing shows. As you can see a very varied mix. Probably the cream of the crop was seeing war at BB King club in New York. I’ve loved that band for a long time and can safely say that it was one of the best performances I’ve ever witnessed live.
Necro-Manchester February
Eyehategod-Manchester June
B. Dolan-Preston September
Burn-London October
War-New York October
Obituary/Carcass-Manchester October
Pentagram-Manchester November
Best scores of 2015
My goal at the beginning of the year was to go after some major stuff and no doubt I accomplished that big time. It was expensive and my savings account got seriously dented but I don’t regret any of it. I never imagined I’d ever own some of these records and they’re way cooler and far more interesting to look at than a figure sitting in an account.  Here’s just some of the stuff I grabbed.
Judge-Chung king can suck it
Chain of strength-TTD 7” Silver sleeve
V/A-Together 7” on Orange and yellow vinyl
Abused-Loud & Clear 7”
Minor threat-s/t 7” First press
Underdog-s/t 7” on blue vinyl
Infest-1st 7” on purple vinyl
Antidote-thou shalt not kill 7" original

You forgot to mention your Samhain on orange ... anyway, this is amazing and I wondered during the year if you got a new CEO position, haha. Congratulations.

I knew that there was something. Thanks for reminding me. 2016 won't be as great for big scores but I have my eyes on a couple of things.
