xCanaanx/Thirty Seconds Until Armageddon - Split 7"

Random UK hardcore split time! I bought this 7" ages ago. I was mainly buying hardcore vinyl at the time and I managed to get it cheap. According to Collective Zine it was released by Ignition Records in 2002.

Both bands contributed two songs to this split:-

xCanaanx -
1. From Blood To Fire
2. Sometimes Death Is Better

Thirty Seconds Until Armageddon -
3. Drone
4. Lost

The record sleeve for this is pretty neat. It's a fold-out jobby that features the lyrics to all the songs, as well as some live band shots across the bottom on the inside.

Side A - xCanaanx

Side B - Thirty Seconds Until Armageddon

I got the standard black version here, but on checking Dead Format I managed to find the full pressing info (hope it's correct!) -

600 on black
200 on clear yellow
100 on clear (w/ record release cover)
100 on black (w/ record release cover)
60   on clear red (without labels)
58   on clear red (with labels)
5     test presses

Ignition Records shut up shop a long time, though a website still exists in the ether that is the Internet.   The best place to find this record now is either in distros or on Discogs, if you can.

xCanaanx has a Facebook page here (though the band is long dead) -

Thirty Seconds Until Armageddon does not.
