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.
