Album – Australasia
Artist – Pelican
Purchased From – No clue where this came from (maybe Hydrahead)
This is one of the cooler albums I own in terms of the packaging and the vinyl. The thing is hand printed, hand numbered and hand embossed. It says on the jacket that it’s 1 of 1000 but there is no fucking way they hand printed 1000 of these things. If so, they got more time than they have sense. The records are pretty bad ass too. It is a split label release between Interloper and Hydrahead Records. I’m pretty sure Interloper did all the work here. From my peaking around, I believe this to be the 4th pressing of this album. I’d almost like to have the 1st pressing too just because I love the original jacket but it’s hard to beat a jacket like this one.
I bought the first Pelican record when it came out but this is the one that made me a believer. I fell in love with Pelican when I heard this for the first time and now I probably listen to Pelican more than any other metal band. They haven’t put out anything but classic albums in my opinion.
