Nifty. Too bad I don't have a cassette player. Should've released it on vinyl. And already got the split coming in the mail. Shirt is cool though.

Kvlt points just plummeted about 1000 points. If you were the stock market right now, you just put is into another recession.

Pretty smart idea for small bands, really. Harder to rip, thus harder to take money out of the band's pocket.

There is a way of recording tapes to your hard drive and converting them to mp3. So if this is the case someone do it and upload yo mediafire already.

I've ordered the cassette but it would be nice to have it on my iphone for when i walk to work in the mornings.

The tape deck I use is built into my home stereo, so it wont be ripped onto my computer. Its kind of nice that way, though, because it almost forces you to sit down and listen to the thing instead of shuffling through it on your ipod. Plus analog rules.

I go through phases where all I do is listen to death metal (as well as other genres, but death metal more so). I've slowed down a lot recently, taking my time with albums and writing more detailed reviews. Trying to absorb the new Blaspherian at the moment. It's really good.

I've been thinking of getting something like that. I just have a cool vintage styled box of a player with a CD player on the side and am/fm radio, which does the trick (my cassette player is seperate) but I've seen some cool turntables that also play cassettes and convert both to mp3. Shit would be dope, 'cept I spend all the money I can use to buy it on vinyl and tapes. It's a vicious cycle.

I know exactly what you mean lol. Having a turntable that played and ripped cassettes too would be sick as hell, though.

Sold out like 20 hours after that post was put on their blog, but considering it was limited to 150 copies that's not too much of a surprise.

In actuality, there will probably be some floating around some distros. Artists hardly ever sell everything themselves. Here's to hoping anyway.

*Kvlt points just plummeted about 1000 points. If you were the stock market right now, you just put is into another recession.*

Oh god, I'm not a kvlt metal head, my reputation is tarnished... Seriously though. Time changes, and I can bet 90% of the people out there either buy cds, mp3s, or by illegal download. But hey, we're just lucky some people up the albums online or else the music might have never reached the some of us.

On a side note, its not hard to get tape -> MP3. Just get a tape player, aux cable, and dl the free Audacity software. Thats how I managed to get Ash Borer's demo on mp3, poorly mastered by me of course... It helps when someone knows how to master recordings, which is why I wait for someone else to upload the album now.
