By the time Rise Above did a second pressing of Blood Lust this year, I had found a download and was digging the low-fi/garage doom sound, so I was looking forward to grabbing a vinyl copy. The day that the album was available for pre-order, I was feeling like I'd already spent too much money on records recently, so I held off on placing my order. When I checked the webstore the following day, it had sold out. Suddenly, it didn't matter how much I'd already spent that month. I had been sucked into the hype machine, and I needed to find a copy. Desperately.
Thankfully, I was able to find a US distributor that still had some in stock. I didn't hesitate and grabbed a copy.
As usual, Rise Above did a great job on the packaging for this. Styled after those old 60's Euro rock records, complete with laminated, flipback sleeve. Nice touch. 400 pressed on white and red vinyl.
