As I recall, the Integrity / Rot In Hell split 2x7" went up for pre-order way back in February 2010. I remember seeing the pre-order announced and the same day going to place an order, but the limited colour had already sold out. So I decided not to bother ordering at all. I then sat back and watched as months passed & many people grumbled and complained about the delays. I guess it didn't bother me too much as I hadn't lost any money. Anyway, finally a month or so ago, these things finally started shipping out, about 21 months after the pre-orders were taken. Once I knew the record had actually made it into existence, I decided to get on the case. First up I went to the label's website and ordered the more common colour, and was pleasantly surprised to have it arrive in the mail the next day. Pretty good service. I almost felt guilty for getting such great service when a lot of people had obviously received the opposite.
The common colour is a blue / green swirl. My copy came with a couple of stickers.
The cool thing about this is that the sleeve contains an illustrated booklet. Or rather, the sleeve is part illustrated booklet. Looks really good. Illustrated by Dwid.
Next I grabbed a copy of the white vinyl from Dwid himself. White is the band colour out of 100. The first pic shows the gatefold sleeve folded out:
And finally, I was fortunate enough to get a test press. I got this one from Dwid. He sold a small number of copies (maybe 5?) with specially made hand painted covers. Mine features one of the characters from the illustrated booklet.
The label who released this, Thirty Days Of Night Records, are now also selling five test press packs in their online store, but their copies are without sleeves. Cheaper though. Definitely worth investigating if you like both bands and collect tests.
