Omega Music - I have developed a great weekend ritual of vinyl acquisition, bolstering a segment of my library that has largely gone neglected since one of vinyl's earlier booms in my college years in the early '90s. I hope to dedicate some Sunday posts to some of these slabs of wax and am kicking it off with two of my favorite recent purchases: Metal Blade's 2012 pressings of Electric Wizard's Witchcult Today and Black Masses, each limited to editions of one thousand each.
Black Masses is, in my opinion, the superior record of the two, though aesthetically the lesser package. Its first disc is split purple and black and the second purple and silver. The lyric and credit insert carries the purple through, also tying back to the spectacular group photo inside the gatefold.
