|Napoleon Was A Hipster|
So i'm now back from my month stay in France and Romania, which was mostly pretty awesome, and it was my goal to raid every record store i could find and blow all my cash before i actually have to be a responsible adult and save it (or say im going to anyways). List is all the shit i bought with maybe a few little blurbs if i can muster them.
Realm of Chaos
If you're into any kind of metal and youre going on a trip somewhere check this site the fuck out. So many cool places i would have never known about are in here and gave me sort of a compass to awesome shops and bars and cafes and shit. http://www.metaltravelguide.com/
The Swan Road
Idk about the rest of Romania, but the city of Cluj is the most depressing city ever. I started off my trip here and man, it was tough. Everything was grey and no one smiled. Plus there wasn't shit to do other than go to this romanian dad rock/shit hop concert festival that only served one really, really bad beer.
Winds of Creation
This is one of the few things i took a chance on. I didnt really know either band, but i new the label (Kreation Records) and figured id go with it because it looked cool. Come to find out the record itself is a clear, blue/red splash pressing that looks awesome. Haven't had a chance to spin it yet but i'm getting there.

Escape from Monsta Island!
This, however, rules on (and off) vinyl.
In Marseille, there's an awesome metal shop called Sabre-Tooth where i picked up 11,12, and 13. I went on monday, which happened to be they day the shop was closed, but the owner just happened to be coming in to do the accounts and i told him i was from the US and he let me come in and browse all his shit. He knew his stuff too and we talked for a bit before i left. It was probably the best shop i visited while i was on this vacation. He had pictures on his wall to of people who had come into his shop, like Maniac from Mayhem, Kerry King, the drummer from Suffocation.
Stream of Consciousness
This was the only other thing i took a chance on, it was cheap, it was from Roadrunner 1988, and the album art was awesome so i got it. No idea if its good or not but we'll see.
