More Integrity 12"s

My last post was a bunch of Integrity 7"s that I needed to fill some gaps in my collection. Today is the same theme, but 12"s rather than 7"s. There's no real order to these.

First up, one from this year, when Deathwish Inc. pressed the 2010 LP 'The Blackest Curse' on 'clear with black smoke' vinyl.

The LP features a new 36 page booklet, although I couldn't be bothered to take a photo of that.

Next is the second press, limited colour of 'Those Who Fear Tomorrow' repress on Organized Crime. This one is one purple vinyl and is numbered out of 116 copies. I purposely passed on this when it came out because I thought that second press colour variants of a reissue was a step too far.

Next is my third copy of last year's 'Den Of Iniquity' double LP. There were three colours made, and I previously picked up two, and it has taken me over a year to pick up the third. This is the 'clear with black smoke' pressing with limited cover numbered out of 320.

And while I was at it, I also picked up a test press for the same 'Den Of Iniquity' double LP. It comes in a cool sleeve and is numbered out of 19 copies.

Next up is the yellow vinyl pressing of the 'Detonate VVorld's Plague' 12". I missed this when it came out as some company called Hellfish got this colour as an exclusive and I didn't want to order from them at the time due to their scandalous shipping rates. At least, that's how I remember it. 100 made.

The next two came out on Record Store Day back in 2012. Organized Crime Records reissued the 'Palm Sunday' LP on two colours of vinyl - grey and white. Somehow it has taken me over three years to get around to picking these up.

On to the second press reissue colours of the classic 'Systems Overload' LP. There was an orange vinyl, numbered out of 115:

And also a grey vinyl press, out of a whopping 600 copies.

Next, another test press. Back in January 2014 there was a delux double LP pressing of 'Systems Overload' which featured the album stretched across two records, each with an etched b-side. This of course meant that a new test press was required. It comes in a nice hand drawn cover numbered out of 18 copies.

Adding this lot to my collection means that I now have 54 Integrity LPs. Combined with the 7"s, I have over 150 Integrity records. And even though I can't stop collecting them, I'm starting to wonder what the point is. I mean, what the hell am I doing?

your integrity collection is larger than most hardcore kids entire record collections. i still think you need to rent out a warehouse to take collection photos of your integrity and bane records. lets not forget your cave collection too. i would love to see all of them in one big photo.

I have a "Den Of Iniquity" test and the "Systems Overload" double LP test as well but mine have different covers. The ones I have came with hand drawn covers on white card stock but they aren't numbered like the ones you have from Organized Crime. I got mine directly from Dwid so I think that's the reason that there end up being multiple covers of test pressings, some from the label and some from the artist.
