Buying Round-Up 2015: Second Quarter

Posted: August 1, 2015 by kingcrimsonprog in Uncategorized

I’m not very good at posting these buying roundups and I haven’t been posting much at all recently due to the final crush at the end of university and an incredibly tiring schedule at work as well. Now that I’ve finally got five minutes to myself I’ve got the time to break open Darksiders 2 for the second time since I got it for xmas two years ago, to go back and listen to all of Biohazard’s albums again, to start reading A Game Of Thrones again, to read Batman Knightfall again. I’ve got to start lifting weights again and while doing so checking out some of the concert Blu Rays I used to enjoy while lifting such as Motorhead’s The Wörld Is Ours, Volume 2: Anyplace Crazy As Anywhere Else. Yes its been so good having free time its been like a big nerdy Christmas.

But its not been all work work work this year. I like to exaggerate and act as if I had no time whatsoever but this last quarter I’ve found the time to get my greasy hands on all of the following:


Its been an interesting half year. Some interesting purchases along the way. Things I didn’t expect myself to ever buy (Less Than Jake). Things I bought but thought would enjoy more (Twilight Time). Things that were pretty terrible (Graveyard Shift). There’s also a bunch of Helloween b sides I got but don’t have a good image for posting. Some of these I’ve reviewed already (most of the Power Metal ones) some I don’t even know how to begin reviewing (I can’t seem to write about comics).

One thing to note, there’s been little to no new releases, I’m falling behind the times. This is becuase I can get old albums for pennies and new albums are usually over ten quid. All that will change soon enough though, when I can work more and earn some proper cash. Then I’ll be able to tell you if the new Marilyn Manson or Children Of Bodom albums are any good etc.
