These are high quality LPs that are imported from the best plants in Europe.

There are three unique colour variants, with each one of them being strictly limited and hand-numbered to 100 nos. each.

The thick gatefold sleeves have a beautiful metallic effect all over and there’s even raised UV lamination done on parts of the layout. The artwork by Xabier Sagasta looks beautiful here. Each LP comes with a download code and transparent logo sticker. LP variant #3 is restricted to the vinyl subscription club – Please bear in mind that these colours are for representational purpose only and the actual products may differ. Also the shipping date is tentative because of the huge mess at the vinyl plants around the world and it’s possible that the LPs will be shipped out a bit later, depending on the backlog at the pressing plants.

With two members of Wormed in their lineup, Spanish grindcore band Ernia have managed to perfect the sound on their sophomore album which is both refreshing and riveting. The music is just as colourful as their artwork, full of intricate bits and with every song offering something different without abandoning the core sound. There is much to delve into here and every listen only enriches your understanding of their delightfully spastic music. To that extent, it’s almost like a technical album with the difference being that their momentum remains unabated while they throw up so much at you, and being so diverse, it only ends up being an utterly fascinating experience which is extremely rare in a genre largely known for its one-dimensional cathartic expression. The songs are incredibly structured, full of unpredictable twists and turns, buildups and breakdowns, and it never seems like a chore to sit through it because everything flows remarkably well and it’s even so goddamn catchy. Indeed, Ernia have crafted a masterful album that offers so much and yet retains its spunk, vivacity and of course, the skull-splintering intensity essential for the style.
