IRON FIST: "CRUCIFY ME" *SKULL BUDDIED GLORY EDITION* (Pre-order)

***PRE-ORDER***

RECORDS WILL SHIP BY FEBRUARY 28TH

 

The our first release is 2024 is an unexpected one with a band we haven't had on the label yet & it's a reissue of sorts too.

The hardcore band was Minneapolis-based Iron Fist & was born out of the remnants of The Claymores & Skull Fuck. This is from their first release &  features the original line up of the band. 

Crucify Me was previously only released in cassette format in 1985 by Shrinking Planet Records. We thought it was about high time that this record needed a proper full vinyl release!

As you can imagine, the source material wasn't stored in ideal conditions, but we enlisted the help of Dave Gardner who restored & remastered it.

Cover artwork is designed by HAZE XXL & silkscreened in 4 colors on our standard tan heavy stock sleeves by Boxy Mouse.

This is the Skull Buddied Glory Edition with a front cover design that's COMPLETELY different from the other edition. Seriously, the designs are nothing alike & is completely new artwork on this variant. On the other hand, the back of the sleeve is completely the same on both editions & is silkscreened in 2 colors.

The vinyl is a haze mix of black & bone. Edition is limited to just 250 copies & is hand-stamped with the edition number on the back.

An 8-page booklet is also included with this record.

 

Catalog # is AMREP 152.

 

Here's the tracks...

Side A

  • Intro
  • Crucify Me
  • His

  • Frustration
  • Something we should also mention in case it's an issue. These releases are handmade & may have slight imperfections. We have the sleeves custom made, then they're shipped to us through the meatgrinder gamble that is UPS. From there, they are run through a screenprinter anywhere from an average of 6-9 times & then are all hand stuffed with the actual records. All in all, that's a lot of handling & so there's a good chance that they're not going to looking like a gleaming shrink-wrapped sleeve from a machine at a factory.

     

    We say this nearly every time & maybe one day it'll work, but PLEASE place everything you want into 1 ORDER.

    If there are multiple orders placed from the same customers we will either combine them with no refund on postage, or they will be sent out exactly as placed.

    C'mon, it's hard enough processing a couple hundred orders quickly without this AND responding to all the emails requesting combined shipping and refunds. This delays EVERY order.
