BV/IO launched a record, shirt, and toy store back in January, and to help you keep up with what we have available, including new releases, pre-orders, exclusive vinyl variants, and things we're just excited to have in stock, we'll be rounding up some of our vinyl selection from time to time. Here are some highlights:

--

Amenra's anticipated Relapse debut De Doorn will arrive June 25, and we're excited to reveal that we've got the record on limited-to-573 translucent gold (aka "beer") colored vinyl in our store. These are almost gone. Pre-order yours while they last. [GET IT]

AT THE GATES - THE NIGHTMARE OF BEING
(just-announced exclusive variant, limited to 300 copies, of anticipated new LP)

At The Gates are releasing the third album of their reunion era, their seventh overall, The Nightmare of Being. Vocalist Tomas Lindberg describes it as "very dark," saying, "It still sounds like At The Gates, 100 percent. It is just more of everything." Our exclusive pressing is on audiophile-quality 180g ultra clear vinyl, and limited to just 300 copies. [GET IT]

CIRCLE JERKS - GROUP SEX
(deluxe edition of the punk classic on splatter vinyl, with lots of extras)

Circle Jerks' debut album, Group Sex, is a classic of early LA punk -- loud, fast and messy in all the right ways, and is slammed with great songs like 'Deny Everything,' 'Operation,' 'Live Fast Die Young' and more." This deluxe, 40th anniversary edition, pressed to splatter vinyl, includes a remastered version of the original album, five additional songs recorded at a 1980 rehearsal, a 20-page booklet featuring rare and unreleased photos, flyers, and "behind the scene stories" by Tony Hawk, Mike Patton, Shepard Fairey, Ian MacKaye, Lars Frederiksen, Mike Ness, Brett Gurewitz, and more. Pre-orders also come with a hand-numbered 24-page fanzine, a reproduction of the one the band printed in 1980 before the album was released. Our black & pink variant is sold out, but we managed to get some of this limited splatter variant [GET IT]

We also jut added a new, limited Circle Jerks bobblehead, and a t-shirt too.

ROTTING CHRIST RECORDS
(new limited edition colored vinyl repressings)

Rotting Christ's ninth album, 2007's Theogonia, and their tenth, 2010's Aealo, have been pressed to limited edition neon orange and coke bottle green vinyl, respectively, for these limited edition versions. We called Aealo "neither black metal nor gothic metal; it is metal. The band firms up its attack and leaves no ends hanging. Every note has a purpose: to go to war. Almost every song is about being a warrior. But the record is neither jingoistic nor political. Rather, it appropriates military ideals — strength, honor, discipline — for civilian ends. All those 300, Spartacus, and boot camp workouts finally have a soundtrack." [GET THEM]

CANNIBAL CORPSE - VIOLENCE UNIMAGINED
(more of what they do best from the death metal vets)

Brandon wrote, "Sure, it’s nothing you haven’t heard, but with the addition of Erik Rutan (Ripping Corpse, Morbid Angel, Hate Eternal) on lead guitar and some fun new melodies and lead parts, Cannibal Corpse prove that old bludgeoning death metal dogs don’t really need to learn new tricks." Pressed to bone white with red color in color vinyl. [GET IT]

BARONESS - GOLD AND GREY
(2LP, now on red and blue vinyl)

As Langdon wrote in an in-depth review, "We see Baroness not only at their most adventurous in terms of new ideas but most conclusive in terms of cataloging old ideas. There are moments of heaviness that rival (but admittedly do not best) the early EPs: sweeping and complex progressive metal numbers that hearken to their first two albums, melodically driven alt-rock salvaging the adventurous but largely unsuccessful attempts on Yellow & Green, plus the new-school standard of noisy, heavy, weird-out rockers from the Purple era." Available on "indie exclusive" 2Lp red and blue vinyl. [GET IT]

HEXVESSEL - DAWNBEARER
(10th anniversary 2LP with 16 page book)

"Dawnbearer is a very important album for us, being our first album but also the first original album release for Svart Records," Mat McNerney says. "It’s also a very special record for our fans, and one that’s particularly close to my heart, in a world of its own when compared to the other records we have made. Considering that it’s been out of print now for some time, I’m delighted to be able to oversee a reissue of this album, together with original demos and out-takes, and liner notes showing the making of this album which carries the initial DNA of Hexvessel’s musical and spiritual journey." The Svart-released double LP comes with a 16-page booklet. [GET IT]

SUICIDAL TENDENCIES - SUICIDAL TENDENCIES
(crossover thrash legends' classic, influential debut)

Suicidal Tendencies' 1983 self-titled debut has been cited as an influence by the likes of Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax, The Offspring and NOFX, among others, with Anthrax's Scott Ian calling it "a perfect crossover between hardcore punk and metal, and I guess that's what makes thrash metal -- all those genre combined, and Suicidal were the first ones to do it because that record came out in '83." [GET IT]

SERJ TANKIAN - ELASTICITY
(new EP from System of a Down frontman on limited, exclusive white vinyl)

System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian's new "rock"-oriented solo EP is made up of material he originally wrote with SOAD in mind. "As we weren’t able to see eye to eye on the vision going forward with an SOAD album," Serj said, "I decided to release these songs under my moniker." Our exclusive edition is pressed to white vinyl, and limited to 500 copies. [GET IT]

We're also now stocking two classic System of a Down albums and a t-shirt.

SATYRICON - DARK MEDIEVAL TIMES & THE SHADOWTHRONE
(remastered, exclusive variants of the long-sought after essential Norwegian black metal LPs)

As Jon once wrote, "These albums are worshiped as some of black metal's most definitive works, setting standards for progressive, twisting, arcane music and eerie atmosphere." Finally back on vinyl, Satyricon's first two albums, Dark Medieval Times and The Shadowthrone, have been remixed and remastered and come with alternate artwork. We have exclusive colored variants of each one available in the store -- on silver and oxblood vinyl -- and both pre-orders are limited to just 500 copies each . [GET THEM]
