As a fan of post metal I must say that this band is very unique.I have listened to some tracks and they are incredible.It's great that Antithetic records will release Part the second in vinyl.Thumbs Upfor Maudlin of the well.But I would like to have more death metal vocals.

Have you heard their three earlier releases? There's plenty of metal and harsh vocals on those three

There's an interview where Toby talks about the more softer, mellow sound on Part The Second over here: http://www.lurkerspath.com/2010/10/28/an-interview-with-toby-driver/

Thanks for the link!I will read some parts of the interview because is too big(and my english isn't so good).Unfortunately,I don't find the albums of Maudlin of the well in Greece.But I have listened some tracks from all of their releases.And I remember that 3 tracks had harsh vocals.Maybe I'm wrong.

Mine arrived as well Thumbs Up It's really a gorgeous package, though I was surprised of how light the light blue actually is, and there were a couple of dark grey accidental looking stains. And it took some time trying to figure out which side had which song(s) Tongue

But hell, thank you Clap Now we'll just have to wait for me to have money to finally buy the turntable...

Ordered a shirt and Stained Glass, thanks for the info Joel!

Yeah, I had posted my comments regarding the drastic variations in the vinyl color on our blog.  Some were very light, some were very colorful.  If it had enough blue to be considered "White /w Light Blue Swirl", it went in the blue pile.  Otherwise, we're going to sell the ones that are essentially white with some grey marble/swirls/splatters and possibly even one very small spot of color, but we're calling them "street snow".  They reminded us of how snow on the side of the road can be perfectly white, or sometimes it gets a little dirty with slush, maybe a homeless pissed in a spot a couple days ago and you can kind of see the yellow...  You get the idea.  I wouldn't sell them as colored, but they're still awesome 180gram vinyl copies of a fantastic album, and they come in the same great packaging w/ the insert as well. 

I'm glad you guys are liking our first release.  There's been some talk of doing the other motW albums as well.  I'll keep you posted when there are more details.

Also, regarding the side labels, they correspond to the artwork on the Part the Second website if you listen to it online.  Each song has its own art.  Since there are 5 songs (side B has songs 2 and 3), we used the art for Rose Quartz on the vinyl, and did the Keep Light Near You art as the insert since it was square already.  The inner gatefold is the art for Clover Garland Island (which also appears, though heavily cropped, on side C).  I chose not to include the "A" "B" "C" and "D" on the labels because I like looking at the art instead.  Plus, you can look at the matrix on the inner ring and see it stamped there "ANTI-001 A", etc.

Awesome You have another sale for any other motW vinyls ever over here.
One minor complaint I have: There's a typo I just noticed on the lyric sheet, in the first line of Laboratories Of The Invisible World:
An electric curent binds us together forever
As current seems to be spelt with only one R on the sheet.
Other than that, perfect work

Mine arrived 6 days after it posted, according to the shipping envelope, and that's probably the best shipping time I've ever had from the US. Awesome work

Hey guys, I posted some test pressings of Part the Second in the store.  There's one copy left:

I may have one more, but I need to check.  but to be on the safe side, I only posted what I was sure I had.

"Sounds earth-shatteringly good"

A loose translation of a comment on a Finnish music forum.

Still waiting for mine.


One thing I'm sure of is that the needle will wear through the record after two years of listening to it daily.

Ah! Got it!

B E A U T I F U L  (The sound quality / music and art packaging, that is)

I admittedly thought I received a faulty copy, or that the vinyl was done with alternative versions... I was playing it on 33, and apparently it ought to be played on 45. Strange are these times.

But thank you very much for this, and I hope the other releases are done on vinyl (and CD again!) like this!
