|Thrift Shop Finds (9-3-21)|
I left the metal alone today for some other flavor. But my Hate Eternal from my birthday list came in so that covered my metal fix.
|1||Within the Ruins|
$5.99. One of my favorite metalcore bands. I love everything they have done but I remember when they dropped this and how fresh it was at the time. It resonated so well they spent their entire next album trying to recapture this sound with their follow up but it didn’t feel quite as good the second time around.
Dreamt for Light Years in the Belly of a Mountain
$4.99. I remember eating Sushi at some joint at the beach almost 15 years ago and this was playing in the restaurant. It was love at first site and had to ask our waitress to go find out who it was. Changed my life.
Cold Day Memory
$5.99. Just filling my back catalog here.
|4||A Skylit Drive|
$1.95. For me, Those cannons could sink ships was worth the price of admission alone. Not a horrible pick up.
|5||Minus the Bear|
Interpretaciones Del Oso
$5.95. Holy Fucking Shit. So far I have all but 2 of their albums and I never expected to catch this one at McKays. I saw this one and got without thought. The drilling and pachuca sunrises were my first exposure to Minus, I love this remix album.
One of the holy trinity of AFI albums I want (with sorrow and underground). I also have art of drowning which is masterful. I feel Jades guitar work on this album is amazing and love just about every song here. So glad to have this finally.
