Grind Finale vinyl re-issue releasedNewspost Posted: November 6, 2012 12:39:39 by Anders Jakobson
Back in 2006 I was approached by a guy called Mike from Unrest Records in Canada. He wanted to do a vinyl release of the "Grind Finale" compilation, which had been released on a 2xCD in digibook by Relapse. I was reluctant at first, because the main sources of the material in the compilation were previous vinyl releases and the CD release was so impressive that I thought it would be hard to match it.
But through the discussions with Mike we ended up with a release that definitively matched it. A massive 4xLP that gets a "wow" reaction from everyone who sees it.
We agreed on an edition of 1000 copies that were quickly sold out.
As the Farewell tour was announced, Mike contacted me about doing a reissue connected to the tour. In true Mike fashion he wanted to improve the already impressive package with some additional stuff. Due to different reasons the reissue wasn't finished in time for the tour, but now it's finally released!
The reissue includes a slipcase with new artwork, the artwork of the 2x2 ft poster is replaced with the new artwork, and it's colored vinyl: side A/B (red), side C/D (bronze), side E/F (silver) and side G/H (gold). Some additional minor adjustments have been done as well, but the content remains the same. No additional songs or anything like that. Just a reissue with a twist.
The "Grind Finale" 4xLP is now available from Nasum. This is a very heavy release (about 1,25 kg each) so it means massive shipping costs. To reduce the price per 4xLP I recommend that you order multiple copies. If you have some friends that would like the album, do order together! Below is a chart for one to five copies, with the total price and price per copy. Of course you can order more than five copies or combine your copy/copies with other merch from the Nasum shop.
|Sweden||Per copy||Europe||Per copy||World||Per copy|
|1||384 SEK||384 SEK||63 EUR||63 EUR||87 USD||87 USD|
|2||755 SEK||378 SEK||116 EUR||58 EUR||160 USD||80 USD|
|3||1085 SEK||362 SEK||156 EUR||52 EUR||216 USD||72 USD|
|4||1435 SEK||359 SEK||200 EUR||50 EUR||286 USD||72 USD|
|5||1735 SEK||347 SEK||239 EUR||48 EUR||342 USD||69 USD|
I know that the prices are high, but I assure you that it's mostly shipping costs. The actual record is sold at a very reasonable price, it's just that it's so extremely heavy that we have to charge massive shipping amounts.
There are other distros that carry the album if you want to get it at a cheaper price, but nasum.com is the only place where you can get it together with additional official merchandise.
One final note: the reissue is printed in 1000 copies, where 200 have some additional black splatter in the vinyl. This version is NOT available from nasum.com, it's exclusive to Unrest Records.
