AGALLOCH’S NEW VINYL BOX SET IS ALREADY SELLING FOR $322 ON EBAY
If anything is certain in this world, it’s death, taxes and the price of Agalloch box sets. Seriously, if you’re one of those people who’s preparing for the apocalypse like the folks on Nat Geo’s Doomsday Preppers then you might want to add to some Agalloch box sets to your cache of canned goods, guns and gold; they’ll only ever go up in value!
The latest box set, The Demonstration Archive 1996-1998, was announced in typical Agalloch fashion with no build-up or hype whatsoever: just “Hey, it’s out now, so order it.” This set consists of three of Agalloch’s oldest and rarest recordings and was released on a single CD back in 2008 but is now available on vinyl (x3) for the first time ever, is limited to just 500 copies, and also naturally includes all sorts of extra-dookie artwork and packaging (pictured above).
Order the set here for €60 (~$78), which is not a bad deal at all considering what’s included. Shipping is free within Germany (where the label releasing the set, Eisenton, is based), and costs €15.50 (slow, ~$20.16) / €24.50 (fast, ~$31.86) for the rest of the world. But that’s not stopping folks from ordering theirs and immediately posting them on eBay for $300 and even $322, with more surely to come as soon as word gets out. The Agalloch black market lives on.
