they suck so much, and they are so very mainstream. ok, there's some descent mainstream stuff out there but not them. I liked some early releases but all this sunn o))) and related hoax pissed me off! ok I like sunn but I don't get all the big hype with 'em, even my dog can play sunn stuff. all these 'cool' so-called artists (hahaha puke like boris) are full of shit. Like a heavier MTV type of bands. SL is actually a fuckin supermarket of trash and they don't even know how to ship vinyls. the thing that sucks the most is that mega-labels like S.L. or the other assholes Hydra Head and all the rest, are actually killing music with their business-like/profit only approach to music! Look how these fuckers approach black metal! even black metal!!! Shame on Xasthur to release on Hydra Head! I'm 36 years old, I seen who these fuckers work, so very much for the money only, so fucked up. money talks and the bullshit walks. I found & bought the Wolves LP's elsewhere. Boycott...


dude i don't even care about this shit, but i have a good friend who works at one of these companies, and it's laughable you think they're making any kind of real money. FYI Xasthur was the one who contacted hydra head.

i mean when the chips are down, all any of these bands are about is money. NWN frequently discusses dropping thousands of dollars to liscense any given reissue/release on his label. people want to be compensated for their work. it's not a big deal. it's kind of funny, one second you're disgusted by the business like practices of "these labels", and the next second you're lamenting how they're "killing the music business". so which is it? are you for or against the music business dude? or are you just some freak who thinks they still play music on MTV for bands on hydra lord to even sound like?

for a 36 year old it's kind of shocking your inability to form a coherent sentence, but then again you're also taking men in corpse paint seriously i can see...

also just so there's no confusion - i own 1 release on each of these labels. the repulsion vinyl reish on SL (looks like someone forgot to listen to the test press before approving), and cavity "on the lam" on hh.

well, i hardly can believe that some one who selling 500 copies of releases have same profits that those who are making 5000... then more you make then cheaper it is..and i dont believe that "assholish bands taking all labels money". + we cannot deny that SL releasing somekind of senseless crap for collectors Laughing

Well, as i know there is cases when bands asking unreasonable amounts of money for small printrun... so there is no points for such rereleases... though have to admit i havent seen NWN deals and i am not lamp near PC desk then can see all details about everything.. i even dont need it.

Well thats already retard... sounds like them dont care about music... why Mortuary Drape LP made by Iron Tyrant is perfect, while LP from much bigger label made with such mistake... it means that them dont care about what them are doing... about what them care then if it is not money?

Now I know I'm not ordering from them again; I've heard too many horror stories from people who have been screwed over.


I've felt this way with Kreation also.. I digress.. Never ordered from Southern Lord, probably never will. I wish I had gotten the Craft LP before the label fanboys snagged them all.


so you have had problems with KREATION? i just placed an order with them and it shipped out last friday, so it hasnt been long enough for me to worry, but it was a lot of money to a label/distro i had never ordered from before.

can anyone share their transaction experiences with KREATION RECORDS? (wish me luck!)

More BORIS ripping off the VON logo and artwork. Must be either a T-shirt or alternate layout for the "Smile" record.

I've heard reports of them using very flimsy LP mailers for sending out records.

Kreation is Zion's gate if i remember right....

Well, a good friend of mine placed recently a massive 8 LP's order from Kreation:? He let them know his concerns for solid packaging so they've agreed to "re-inforce" the package for an extra $10. I'll just wait to see how the package will arrive and then post my thoughts. However I think that I heard or read somewhere that they don't pack that well!

Yes Zion Records is Kreation Records.

As for S.L. well, I fuckin hate this label, not for the profit they may make but for the shit they are releasing. Only for the garbage along with Hydrahead, Conspiracy etc. OK S.L. is a little better than the other two but still sucks to the bone. BTW they are (or were) KINGS of bad overseas packaging!

That's hilarious bullshit.
It's more than obvious that these Drone/Doom fucks just look for a few stylish tidbits to add to their fashion technique.

I don't know Boris but I couldn't care less. Drone is so cheap.

pretentious drone hipster #2: "Yeah, genious!"

I doubt the band has anything to do with this appropriation.
I think it's all stephen o'malley.
the japanese versions of their albums are always totally different covers.

boris is actually pretty good.
It is just psychedelic garage rock these days.
no drone.

Personally I have bought from them in the past before on the odd purchase, but never again. The reason being I had my own record shop for some considerable time of last year, they were one of the first label's I contacted on wholesale etc because there was a public demand for their stuff. Anyway, I spent well over $100, never recieved any of it, when confronted in an E-mail after some time they sent me a sarcastic reply just stating "It was sent" 6 months later they had the cheek to send me my invoice. Paypal never helped me properly either.

No support.

a few years back i ordered some distro stuff and one of my items wasnt in stock, so i sent back-ups, and somehow all of that took about 2 months to process. i ordered a cd as a gift for a friend last year and it went well. but yeah, if for whatever reason you want their stuff, order it from somewhere else. shit, just about any independent record store stocks their entire catalog anyways.

i could rant on about how i feel about O'Malley for days, but i'll save that for another time...

oh, and Greg Anderson has a "True Till Death XX" straight edge tattoo on his arm that he tries to play off as "oh, it just means stay true to what you're doing" he might as well have "enjoy life" tattooed on his arm.

couple of fools tryin to be cool
