0023 - November Coming Fire - Dungeness 12"

Another TDON related record and my first 12"!

I got into November Coming Fire after getting their Evocation 7", so took a step back in time and purchased this record too. I couldn't believe it when I received it. The package was awesome and the vinyl itself was so nice!

This record was originally released on CD by Reflections Records in w2006, but was remastered in 2010 ready for a vinyl release.

The simple, moodiness of the front sleeve was encompassing enough.

The back of the sleeve, equally so. The stormy, lighthouse scene epitomised the town that record was named after. Even the song titles listed down the middle of the scene, don't detract from it's atmosphere.

When you open the sleeve, you're presented with the song lyrics on one side and on the other a photo taken from inside a derelict house, with the credits in the top right.


1. Blue Reigns
2. Powerstation
3. Devil on The Shore
4. The Jackal
5. HMS Blackwater
6. That Black House Made of Rubber
7. Argonaut
8. Instrumental No.2
9. Providence
10. Mascot
11. Queenliest Dead
12. Closure

Side A - 

As I said, I was awestruck by the quality of the record. My copy was the Whit/Gold version. Again, the centre sticker on this record also labelled each side, which was a nice touch.

Side B -

This 12" was a co-op release by Thirty Days Of Night Records and Italian label Anchors Aweigh. Anchors Aweigh pressed 250 on Gold/Black splatter vinyl and TDON pressed 250 on White/Gold vinyl.

These are still available on Gold/Black splatter from Anchors Aweigh and from NCF themselves at their online store, in both colours.

0022 - Cyvoid - S/T 10"

This is where I start to get to the business of my early collection and where I graduate from 7" up to 10/12"s. It's still Thirty Days Of Night worship thought at this point.

First of all though, a quick history. Cyvoid featured members of local Leeds bands like The Plight, Send More Paramedics as well as End To Empires and Antares. They still play sporadically, but this was their last recorded output as far as I know and their only record released on vinyl.

Cyvoid played a kind of futuristic crossover between hardcore and thrash.

The record sleeve caught my eye with this one. It features a silhouetted city scape, with the band's name rising above the skyline like a series of giant 3D skyscrapers.

The back of the sleeve is equally as good and is seems to have the 3D band name from behind, which is a cool effect. The songs featured on the record are in the bottom left and the bottom right features the logos for TDON and Moving Parts Collective, who did the sleeve are.

Side A -
1 Revok
2. Phenotype
3. Hardware
4. Facehugger

Side B -
5. Time To Die
6. Idory
7. Landfill Gulag

There was 300 copies of this record pressed, 150 on Black and 150 on Clear vinyl.

The centre stickers were nice and clear to, marking out each side and reminding who the band was!

In terms of picking up copies, neither TDON or the Band have any left in their stores, but if you're local to Leeds, Crash Records and Jumbo Records have copies. If you're not local to Leeds, there may be copies on both Discogs and Dead Format.

New/Awaited arrivals -

So, I've gone a bit mad and ordered a few records over last week or so, but before I get onto that, a parcel did arrive the other day.

I finally got my Grace 7" pre-order box set from the dudes at Hemlock 13! It contained both colour-ways of the 7", a T-shirt, loads of flyers/stickers/badges etc and came in an awesome, screen-printed heavy duty cardboard box. I'll post it all on here at some point!

Onto those records I'm eagerly awaiting -

Iron Witch - Post Vegas Blues 7" (part of the TDON Vinyl club)
No Omega - Metropolis 12" (part of the TDON Vinyl club)
Martyr Defiled - In Shadows/Ecophagy 12" (part of the TDON Vinyl club)
Let It Die - 7" (due to be released by Church Of Fuck)
Starve/Terzij De Horde - Split LP (from Badger Records)
Coilguns/Never Void - Split 10" (from DeadDeadDead Music)
Foxes/Iselia - Split 12" (Dog Knights Productions)
Iselia - 12" (Dog Knights Productions)
Foxes - 12" (Dog Knights Productions)
We Came Out Like Tigers - Agelessness and Lack 12" (Dog Knights Productions)
You'll Live - Above The Weather 12" (Dog Knights Productions)

So that's 2 7"s, 1 10" and 7 12"s. Plus I'm already looking at what I want once this lot's dropped!
