But Daves…what is WAX VESSEL? I’m glad I asked. “WV was founded with the express purpose of creating collectors items. We strive to provide limited run vinyl pressings with no compromise. We will always have the most insane variants, on the highest quality materials. Wax Vessel is built on a few key pillars:
No represses. These are collectors items.
No plain black records.
No unit counts above 300 (and even that’s a stretch for a non-joint release).
No unauthorized presses. We don’t believe in boots, artists should be paid.
No profit sharing. We do this because we love the format. Any profit is up to the band. They can donate or pocket it.
Our ridiculous news of the day is our first partnering release with WV, THE SAWTOOTH GRIN ‘Cuddlemonster’ 12”!!!
All releases are individually foil numbered in gold. Official pressing numbering will be out of 205 units - the base pressing plus the Wax Mage copies. Every order comes with extras in case of mistakes or items lost in shipping, but ‘overrun’ copies will be unnumbered, and not count towards official press numbers. We will track overruns in case anyone wants the “true” press count. To keep track:
WV005 - THE SAWTOOTH GRIN ‘Cuddlemonster’
54 on clearwater blue and orange extreme splatter
48 on opaque orange centerburst swirl, in clearwater blue, with black splatter
104 on transparent mandarin orange with black swirl
5 test presses on black
6 wax mage copies
OVERRUN: 1 unnumbered wax mage, 4 unnumbered mandarin orange swirl, 4 unnumbered splatter. Official press numbers are 6/50/50/100, but displayed numbers include unnumbered overrun copies.
Orders open on October 4th, 2019 at 9am PST.
California’s NUVOLASCURA released their self-titled 12”LP in early 2019 to widespread salivation, and the first press out of 200 on Zegema Beach Records is now long gone. This leads to some seriously sick news, as U.K./German behemoth Dog Knights Productions is taking over the European side of the repress release, with Zegema Beach continuing to distribute in North America. The second press is limited to 300 copies on white vinyl with stunning color-inversion artwork by Sean Leary. Fans of Lord Snow, Blind Girls, Mahria, Frail Hands aka extremely technical, driving and screamy hardcore/emo-violence will fall head over heels for this, easily one of the best releases of 2019.
300 copies on white 12” vinyl. 11 tracks. Download code included.

We also have 10 specials available for only $10 that include the first LP ‘Defragmented…reformatted’ on red w/sparkle j-card bundled with the new album ‘approximation_of_a_human’ on blue/gold sparkle tapes.

OLAM - I Will Guide Thy Hand (cassetteLP) (ZBR168)
For fans of: Converge, Minaret and Blue Noise
This exceptional debut LP from Indiana’s OLAM is bursting with metallic hardcore riffs, throat shredding screams and jaw-dropping drumming. The mixture of hardcore, metal, screamo and post-metal is truly a beautiful thing, and those vocals remind us of Jacob Bannon which is always a good thing. Easily one of the most impressive debuts of 2019.
