Years ago... before Relapse signed em, before getting to open for METALLICA (!), and before folks outside of the underground even really knew about em, a badass band from Georgia (via Virginia) named BARONESS released two EPs aptly titled First and Second. Both were snatched up by a rabidly growing fanbase, and have remained largely out of print since.

The band's now-classic formative material has finally seen a proper reissue, combined together as one deluxe LP. A bit dirtier, punker and more metal than their current rock-infused catchy weirdness, First & Second is an important document in the lineage of this awesome band, and all 38 minutes of music have been completely re-mixed and re-mastered for a much fuller sound than ever before.

Image
Housed in a beautiful gatefold jacket with guitarist/vocalist John Dyer Baizley's elaborate and intricate artwork (spread through the exterior, interior and printed dustsleeve - larger image here), this foil-stamped beaut is now available for pre-order direct from Robotic Empire!

We're really stoked to have witnessed BARONESS literally go from the basement to the arena in just a few years, and are extremely happy to play a small part in this LP. This release has been a LONG time coming, and while we're not the label who put it out (Hyperrealist did), we are pretty much the main mailorder outlet for this bad mamma jamma aside from Hyperrealist themselves. 2000 copies of this beast have been pressed, with 500 on red vinyl, 500 on swirly olive vinyl and 1000 on black vinyl. All on the pressing plant floor ready to ship, we expect our copies to arrive here any time now. At a $14.99 price, you can pre-order this now direct from us at the Robotic Empire - Online Store.

Image
Somewhat related on several levels is the limited tour pressing of BLACK TUSK's Passage Through Purgatory LP that we scored a few weeks back. Akin to the BARONESS reissue, this 12" was also released by Hyperrealist, has awesome John Baizley artwork, and is primarily available through the Robotic Empire - Online Store. Only us and the band themselves have this available, as its limited to just 350 (signed n' numbered) copies.

Image
The other big addition/alteration to our Online Store this week is the newly discounted FLOOR Below & Beyond Deluxe Vinyl Box Set. To be more specific, during an inventory check we discovered that 13 copies (of less than 50 remaining in total) have some minor damage to the outer box and thus, can't really be sold at full price. We tried to get more boxes to replace these damaged ones, but no extras were left... so for those who were interested in this but dissuaded by the $250 price tag, we've now got a slightly scuffed, slightly cheaper version available.

Image
The damage is very minimal in general, just a slight scrape on the canvas of the outer box (see photo above) on most of these 13 copies. This effects vinyl and CD playability zero, so if you want all the tunes and artwork and everything that comes with the most elaborate project/release we've ever done, now's the chance to nab it at a discounted price. This is also now available in the Robotic Empire - Online Store.

p.s. for those in the Austin region, be sure to check out FLOOR live at the Fun Fun Fun Fest this upcoming weekend (Sun, Nov 7th), as it's their last known/scheduled "reunion" performance... (for now?)

Last but not least is an absolutely KILLER update to the store as far as other new items and restocks go. Almost all bangers this time around, we've got new vinyl from BASTARD NOISE, CASPIAN, CLOUD MOUTH, EXTREME NOISE TERROR, JULIE CHRISTMAS (of BATTLE OF MICE, MADE OUT OF BABIES, etc), SKELETONWITCH and TRIAC... as well as essential restocks from FELL VOICES, KYLESA, PHOBIA, PIZZA and more.

Pop Market.com also has discounted box sets for half off the normal price that amazon is asking for.

Wow have we ever been busy packing & shipping the BARONESS "First & Second" collection LP and FLOOR discounted Box Sets! (see previous update for info) So with major thanks is how we wanna start this update; a mega "thank-you" to everyone who's ordered, and to everyone else: please keep em coming! Baroness has been shipping as of last week but please continue to be patient for your orders to arrive, we’re getting slightly backed up at this point. Beyond the chaos that that's ensued, we've managed to round up another awesome batch of new items and restocks...

http://i407.photobucket.com/albums/pp15 ... een648.jpg

One big one we'd like to make particular note of is the FLOOR Sight & Seen 2xDVD pre-order that we just put up. Our brethern Chunklet is responsible for the release of this one, and we expect it to be a keeper. This 2xDVD showcases two of the band's "special" reunion shows in which they played with the three main original drummers in a rare experience that isn't likely to be repeated. Three different eras of FLOOR were well documented on this pro-shot/pro-audio DVD, along with archival footage from the band members' vaults, an interview/featurette thing and a second data-disc is also included with a host of other stuff as well. All in all, a top-notch documentary/live collection and having witnessed the shows in person, we're confident the final shebang should be pretty stellar! We're doing PRE-ORDERS on this one (since we don't actually have em yet), but expect them to arrive early/mid December. Anything else ordered along with the 2xDVD will be held to ship with the pre-order... and a trailer of this beast can be viewed here. You can preorder this now in the Robotic Empire - Online Store.

Related to that is the aforementioned FLOOR Below & Beyond Deluxe Box Set that we recently discounted. To be more specific, during inventory we found some mildly damaged boxes that we can't really sell at full-price... so we've knocked 50 bucks off the top and are selling the remaining ones now. The scuff/damage really is minor, and some more info can be found here.



Besides those key items, we also got a solid fulfillment of COUGH releases from the mighty Forcefield label. These RVA dawgz just hooked up with Relapse, have been doing the "slower" occult doom/sludge thing for a good term now and finally just dropped the long awaited caustic split LP with THE WOUNDED KINGS. Not a ton of distros have this yet, so we're stoked to stock that one along with re-stocks of their debut album on both CD and 2xLP. MAUDLIN OF THE WELL (the pre-KAYO DOT metal band) surprised us all with a new full length last year, and Antithetic just issued that monster on 2xLP. More new releases from Denovali and Hydrophonic, along with some new Josh Lay stuff, plus a good variety of restocks and this turned into a substantial update out of the blue! Here ya go:
