IMPORTANT - Our target of 200 copies has been reached! Thank you to everybody who placed their order early to help get us to this target. The initial 200 copies will be pressed on transparent vinyl, and this is only available to those who have already placed their order. The remaining 800 copies from this print run will be split as 300 white vinyl and 500 black vinyl. These are available to order now as with our regular pre-orders, and will ship as soon as they're delivered to us.
Presenting Earache's Vinyl On Demand Store! Each day at Earache, we get requests for various albums from our illustrious back catalog to be pressed on vinyl once more, from the very early days back in the late '80s right up to more recent releases that didn't get a vinyl pressing upon the original release. Well, now is your chance to demand we make the vinyl record that you want us to make!
Starting with 25 of the most requested releases, this store is designed to make sure that there is sufficient demand for these records in a similar way to our two previous Kickstarter campaigns that saw Nocturnus "Thresholds" and Lawnmower Deth's debut, "Ooh Crikey It's Lawnmower Deth", both receive the FDR treatement and become available again for the first time in many years. Obviously re-pressing major albums such as Carcass' "Heartwork", Morbid Angel's "Altars of Madness" or "Scum" by Napalm Death (all available from our main webstore) isn't a problem, as we know they will sell. But re-pressing some of these albums may tie up cash flow that could be used for our newer up and coming bands.
So, the Earache On Demand store is a risk-free option for both us and for you. You will not be charged for your order until the demand for the vinyl is met. If the album does not reach its target, you pay nothing, we lose nothing. If there is sufficient demand, then the album will be remastered for the vinyl pressing in a way that's previously brought new life to classic albums from the likes of Entombed, At The Gates, Bolt Thrower and Terrorizer, allowing the music's nuances to shine through and giving each album a more immersive sound than ever before!
The initial pressing will be 1000 copies, with the 200 ordered to meet the demand coming on an exclusive clear vinyl. The clear vinyl will ONLY be available to customers who order here and help us reach our target! Furthermore, each album comes with the option to have your own name printed in the credits list!
