Occasionally, I write music reviews.

Cheers Dude, I'm glad you think so. Everyone has their humble beginnings. Smile

These are great bands to start with ! Smile Also, I didn't know there was a German pressing of Rajas's EP. It must be quite rare.

I wouldn't say it's rare but it's pretty uncommon in the grand scale of things.

Funnily enough I think the Japanese pressing looks way cooler but can't really complain, the tracks are still pure fire.

Nice! Seeing as you dig the Rajas EP, their Rajas Complete Best I highly recommend too, it has every release they had made to that point in it and remastered, with the exclusion of just one demo tape.

I can attest to his statement. The compilation album is seriously a good buy. If you can find it, get it. You won't regret it. Hand

I'm not really a big fan of the Compact Disc but for the content itself that's highly tempting, I give you that. If only they pressed a double-LP for a record nerd like myself. Tongue

Ah yeah that's fair. I tend to collect a bit of both, I like quite a few vinyls for the art, cool band photos and other goodies, but at the same time a CD is always nice too for the (usually) squeaky clean audio.
