Rise Above actually had these two records posted in their webstore a while ago, but since they were unavailable to purchase, I assumed that I'd missed the preorder, and they had sold out. While I was picking up the new Blood Ceremony and Beastmaker albums, I figured that I'd check again, and was surprised to find they were available. I didn't hesitate to add them to the cart before checking out.
I've always enjoyed Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell, so I was looking forward to this latest two song single. No need to hunt for a preview song to check it out first...this was an automatic buy.
Two songs in that same rowdy rock n roll vein that the Shovell do best.
150 pressed on crystal clear vinyl. I love those labels with the rainbow Rise Above logo. Looking good.
Unlike the Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell record, the Beastmaker record doesn't offer anything new. I believe these were just two songs taken off the band's self released demo, but they both ended up on the album, so after a couple of spins, I'll probably just be shelving this one.
Still, I'm not going to turn my back at a Rise Above clear vinyl pressing. 150 pressed.
