This Saturday (April 20), many record shops and labels around the world will be participating in Record Store Day. We’ve trawled through teh interwebz to find the very best stuff that’s going down this weekend….

Bring Me: taking over in 2013

Bring Me The Horizon release a special, limited edition 10” vinyl of Hammer-certified massive banger Sleepwalking, with only 500 copies made. Oversized sausage not included, but the internet bitching almost certainly is.

Punk legends The Sex Pistols have a very special 7” picture disc available for RSD, comprising a rare 1977 mix of Pretty Vacant along with a 2008 live country and western version of the same song. Johnny Rotten described it as “putting the cunt into country”. We won’t argue.

Testament: well thrashy

Nuclear Blast Records are putting out a whole raft of goodness, including vinyl releases exclusive to the UK from Anthrax, Testament, Amorphis and Overkill, and a free (that’s FREE) sampler including Soilwork, Hypocrisy, Avantasia and a bunch of other ace bands. You can see Nuclear Blast bands talk about why vinyl rules here:

The Algorithm: ALL THE GENRES!!!111one

Basick Records’ awesome/mental stars Chimp Spanner, The Algorithm, Skyharbor and Uneven Structure each have a limited edition double disc vinyl album out. 500 copies each only, so get yours quick.

Napalm Death

Earache Records are putting out a loud of limited goodies, the highlight of which is the world’s shortest ever album. 13 tracks from grind gods like Napalm Death, Brutal Truth and Insect Warfare included. So that’s all of 83 seconds running time, then. Reign In Blood suddenly seems like a prog epic.


The metal gods themselves, Judas Priest, are putting out a special splatter LP of British Steel. You don’t need more selling than that, right? It’s British fucking Steel. Same goes for Motörhead’s Overkill and Bomber, which also have special splatter releases, and Slayer’s special versions of Hell Awaits and Show No Mercy. It’s fucking Motörhead and SLAY-ER! SLAY-ER!

Prog god Steven Wilson is releasing a heavyweight picture disc 12” with demo versions of Luminol and The Watchmaker from latest masterpiece The Raven That Refused To Sing (And Other Stories). Nothing says “Record Store Day” like two terrifying ghost stories.

Killswitch Engage: Back on form

If you don’t love Holy Diver by Dio, you’re ill and should seek urgent medical attention. Killswitch Engage’s cover of it was badass too. And on Record Store Day, you can get both versions on a limited edition 7” vinyl. If you want one, you’ll have to get in the queue behind everyone at Hammer.

Cannibal Corpse: Well it ain’t Barry fucking Manilow, is it?

No one does picture discs like Cannibal Corpse. So a revolting one for death metal classic Butchered At Birth (which is probably banned in half of the world) is a perfect release for Record Store Day. Go pick up some A-grade gore before it’s sold out/censored.


In one of the more unusual releases for the day, Baroness main man and artist extraordinaire John Baizley, Neurosis geniuses Steve Von Till and Scott Kelly, and Nate Hall from US Christmas continue to explore the work of country singer/songwriter Townes Van Zandt with a special 10”. It’s utterly wonderful.

Avenged Sevenfold: back in 2013!

Avenged Sevenfold have two vinyls out, one picture disc with Carry On from Call Of Duty: Black Ops II, and a vinyl/DVD package of their Diamonds In The Rough B-sides and rarities compilation, and their 2008 filmed Live In The LBC show. A7X fans, get down to your indie record store.


Bolt Thrower: special splatter version of debut album In Battle There Is No Law!

 Botch: Remastered double LP of debut album American Nervoso

Burzum: special splatter versions of the first four albums (Aske EP included on Burzum)

Cult Of Luna: special white vinyl with grey and black splatter of monstrous new album Vertikal

Killing Joke: Mini-compilation of their first single Nervous System, as well as Pandemonium and latest single Corporate Elect

Napalm Death: 10” of Leaders Not Followers and the Insect Warfare split 7”

Opeth: special half-white, half-grey LP of Morningrise

Poison Idea: red 7” release of the Filthkick EP
