this one is a classic of european edge metal. it saw the light of day in 1997 and still sounds so fresh! man, at the time i was listening to korn and the like :-) a copy on vinyl comes around the bay not quite often and if so, be prepared to have some money in your wallet. i spotted this baby pretty early when it appeared. so i watched it in my account to make a last-second-bid which tend to have a favourable prognosis. after one day it was at 16€. obvious that other collectors would smell the rat.
so i was pretty sure that the price would go up the moment the clock ticked down. as the time had come, a sunday afternoon, i sat down at the computer. i remember that i got outbid on a record just minutes before the liar auction ended and i was pretty disappointed. just can't tell you anymore what record that was - but that's not necessary anyway. because of my mood i didn't really expect to win the invictus lp. i put a fair amount of money in maybe 15 sec. before the end. the price jumped from 16 bucks to 17,50. i watched the seconds go by and waited for the raise. 5 sec. - nothing. 4 sec. - still nothing. 3 sec. - what the heck...? 2 sec. - can it be? 1 sec. - this can't be! 0 sec. - congratulations, you won the item for 17,50€...
good day after all! did i overrate this record? just like the fear my thoughts lp in the previous post? i don't know. but what i know is that i'm the proud owner of great record in mint condition. sweet!
the lp version comes with a different artwork than the cd version and looks great on orange. the pre-owner kept the genet records newsletter (yes, a real newsletter on actual paper) and i was very grateful that he put it in as a bonus, especially as it wasn't listed at the auction.
solid orange vinyl. 150 made. genet records. 1997.
