  • Axl Rosenberg

Hydra Head Test PressingsThe legendary Hydra Heads Records keeps soldiering ever-onward, financial difficulties be damned! The label has sent out the following press release:

“We’re rampin’ up for our 2014 vinyl reissues/represses and we need to drum up some fun(ds). So, we’ve cracked open the ABT™/HHR™ vaults and dug out some more treasure for you to buy.

“Specifically, about 50 different Hydra Head Test Pressings© from the very early days up through the present moment. Included are titles from all your favorites and the favorite obscurities: Cave In, Khlyst, Botch, Buzzov*en, Converge, Khanate, Melvins, House of Low Culture, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Keelhaul, Xasthur, Neurosis, Big Business, Harvey Milk, etc, etc.

“Also included in the sale is the HHR TP Mega Pack with 87 different 7″, 10″, 12″ and 2×12” test pressings including such rarities as: Dillinger Escape Plan Calulating Infinity, Goatsnake/Burning Witch split, Botch We Are the Romans, Cave In Beyond Hypothermia, Hollomen s/t, Circle Manner, Converge/Agoraphobic Nosebleed The Poacher Diaries, etc.

“Just so you know what stuff we’ll be spending your hard earned monies on if you buy treasure from this sale, here is a partial list of what we’ve got coming up in 2014:

Khlyst – Chaos is My Name LP,
Cave In – Jupiter re-mastered + bonus 12”,
Khanate Things Viral 3xLP,

Old Man Gloom – Seminars I-III,

“…and a whole bunch of other excellent music.”

I fucking LOVE that ANb/Converge split and am seriously considering buying the test pressing… of course, by the time I finally make up my neurotic mind, it will probably be long gone.

Don’t be a dope like me! Go here and buy some great shit. You won’t regret it.
