On Sale Now: Exclusive Satyricon Reissues, Slayer Colored Vinyl, & More
BV/IO launched a record, shirt, and toy store back in January, and two exclusive Satyricon variants today. Here's more info on those and other shop highlights:
Norwegian black metal lifers Satyricon have been at it with the core duo of Satyr and Frost for over 25 years, and they continue to evolve and progress in fascinating ways. Their most recent album, 2017's Deep Calleth Upon Deep, was genuinely great, and we look forward to the band making their planned trip to the US as soon as it's safe (they're on the bill for Psycho Las Vegas for now). Meanwhile, Satyricon are revisiting their early days with reissues of their first two albums, Dark Medieval Times and The Shadowthrone, both released in 1994.
The remixed and remastered reissues come with alternate artwork, and we have exclusive colored variants of each one available in the store. Dark Medieval Times is available on silver vinyl, while The Shadowthrone is available on oxblood vinyl, and both are limited to just 500 copies each. Get yours while they last.
SLAYER - SHOW NO MERCY & HELL AWAITS
(true classics in limited colored variants)
Slayer's certified classic debut and sophomore albums continue to live up to their brutal, sinister reputations, and absolutely should be a part of your collection. We have them on limited red (Show No Mercy) and orange (Hell Awaits) vinyl. [GET THEM] [AND MORE SLAYER TOYS & MERCH]
METALLICA - RIDE THE LIGHTNING
(finally back in stock)
A thrash metal classic, Metallica's 1984 sophomore album has been digitally remastered and pressed to audiophile-quality 180G vinyl to rip up your speakers. [GET IT] [AND MORE METALLICA RECORDS & MERCH, TOO]
MOTORHEAD - OVERKILL (40th Anniversary Edition)
(Classic 2nd album with lots of extras)
Ace of Spades might be Motörhead's best known album, but the one that came before might be their best. Their second album, Overkill, includes such bone-ratting, full-throttle, barnburner classics as "Stay Clean," "No Class," and the unstoppable title track. For this 40th anniversary set, the original album has been half-speed mastered from the original tapes and pressed onto 180 gram vinyl along with a previously unreleased 1979 concert, and a 40-page book including interviews with the band & never before seen photos.

CRUMBSUCKERS - LIFE OF DREAMS
(exclusive reissue on clear vinyl with colored splatter)
Long Island crossover thrashers Crumbsuckers are celebrating their 35th anniversary this year and reissuing their classic 1986 debut, Life of Dreams. Our exclusive variant is pressed on transparent vinyl with apple red and emerald green splatter and limited to 300 copies worldwide. [GET IT]
DEVIN TOWNSEND - ACOUSTICALLY INCLINED - LIVE IN LEEDS
(exclusive, limited colored vinyl)
This 2019 Leeds Devin Townsend show had previously only been available on Blu-ray as part of the Ultimate Edition of Empath. It's since been remixed and remastered, and our exclusive edition is pressed to 150g 2LP tan vinyl. [GET IT]
HAKEN - AFFINITY
(exclusive color, limited copies left)
In our retrospective, Langdon calls Affinity "perhaps the most keenly hook-oriented album Haken have ever produced." Our exclusive variant of The Mountain already sold out, and there are only a few copies left of Affinity, which is pressed to limited edition 2LP silver vinyl. [GET IT]
ASPHYX - NECROCEROS
(exclusive colored variant of 2021 LP)
Dutch death metal masters Asphyx have been at it for over 30 years (with a few short hiatuses in between), and they still sound like a hungry band with more to say on their fired-up 10th album Necroceros, their first in over four years. Our exclusive variant is limited to 200 copies and pressed to 180g white vinyl. [GET IT]
FROZEN SOUL - CRYPT OF ICE
(one of the best death metal LPs of 2021 on baby blue vinyl)
As Langdon wrote in our review, this is "a record that seems to describe the circle of death metal at its platonic ideal. Crypt of Ice situates itself not at the fringes of death metal, its psychedelic and literary wilds, its caustic tomblike windy cliffs and craggy precipices, its satanic steeples and abyssal wailing pits of torment; Crypt of Ice lives in its center." Pressed to limited edition, baby-blue vinyl. [GET IT] [OUR REVIEW]
MR. BUNGLE - THE RAGING WRATH OF THE EASTER BUNNY DEMO
(Mike Patton, Dave Lombardo, Scott Ian... 2LP red pressing of this ferocious comeback)
Mike Patton's new and improved Mr. Bungle, resurrected after over 20 years, re-recorded their 1986 demo, and as Andrew Sacher wrote in the BV review, "This album finally gives these songs the proper treatment they've always deserved, and the members sound as inspired as ever on these recordings. Easter Bunny is just a great punk/thrash/crossover record, period." [GET IT] [AND THE CLASSIC MR. BUNGLE ALBUMS TOO]
MORE: EXCLUSIVE VARIANTS THE LIVING - 1982: Duff McKagan's early punk band on translucent ruby vinyl (almost sold out), COCK SPARRER - SHOCK TROOPS: a classic on gold inside ultra clear and swamp green with red, gold and white splatter vinyl, DANCE GAVIN DANCE - TREE CITY SESSIONS 2: orange with purple, yellow and orange splatter 2LP vinyl, and THE OBSESSED - THE CHURCH WITHIN: doom classic exclusively reissued on 2LP blue vinyl with black smoke.
