Deals and Steals – Checklist Domination

  There are a few items on this month’s CD shipment from Second Spin that I’ve been looking for since I first heard them. All prices U$, unless otherwise noted:

Flyleaf – Flyleaf $8.99. I was intrigued by Lacey’s vocals on the new Apocalyptica record, so I picked this up. Second disc contains an acoustic set of a half-dozen album tracks.

Die Krupps – Metalmorphosis of Die Krupps ’81-’92 $7.99. I’ve all but given up on finding the (I) record from Jurgen Engler’s primary industrial project – luckily this Cleopatra Records compilation has several tunes from that era onboard.

VNV Nation – Empires $7.99. The record that broke the futurepop sound wide open.

Prong – Power of the Damager FREE due to Second Spin promotion. Latter-day Prong fortified with Ministry-style industrial heft.

Even though the Prong was free, the big haul of the week was found at The Beat Goes On – they got me a copy of Messiah:

  Fan-club only release by Godflesh was re-released with additional dub remixes in 2003, but still not the easiest find. Awesome stuff- fits chronologically into the Pure era. It was also free, thanks to a full stamp card. My addiction has a few small perks!

  2. […] the review. I’d been searching for a copy of Die Krupps’ 1990 transitional album from the world of synthpop to industrial […]
