Limb - Self-Titled (Limited Edition 180g Green and Black Vinyl - only 300 pressed!) New & Sealed
Self titled debut album from London Doom/Sludge monsters Limb. Limb have been a band to catch by those in the know on the Doom/Sludge scene since their formation in 2011. The underground metal label 'Witch Hunter Records' was hooked enough to release the band's early demos, as well as a recent split EP with fellow sludge merchants Gurt, on which Limb cover and truly demolish Queen's 'Son and Daughter'. They are also a crushing live outfit, that have shared stages around the country with bands like Conan, Witchsorrow and label-mates Black Moth and Throne. Championed by Metal Hammer, Terrorizer and the rest, 'Gift Of The Sun', Limb's first release for NHS, even made onto BBC radio and that perhaps highlights Limb's singular vision. Their sound is shot through with an alternative twist on the Doom/Sludge theme. The record’s dynamics and approach are akin to Slint in many ways, though post rock it most certainly isn't. It's deliberately stripped-down. Stark, bleak and visceral. As dark and menacing as Joy Division 'de-tuned', though post-punk it most certainly isn't. There are moments of sleazy psychedelics, blasts of cosmic rock and brushes with hardcore. This is one heavy record. For this release we have some very special cover art, created by the super talented (and super hot) Richey Beckett, fresh from his work with Metallica and Mastodon. It's pretty special: intricately detailed and darkly beautiful.
The super deluxe vinyl edition will come in a gatefold sleeve, with a heavyweight 180g, green and black vinyl record, plus an insert of the cover art and a free download of the whole album. Vinyl is limited to just 300 copies.

ALL THE ALBUMS I SELL ARE VERY SECURELY PACKAGED WITH AT LEAST TWO STIFFENERS AND NEW PLASTIC SLEEVES. I ONLY USE THE HIGHEST GRADE PACKAGING TO ENSURE THE RECORDS ARRIVE IN THE CONDITION I STATE IN MY LISTINGS.
I COMBINE POSTAGE AND PACKING COSTS FOR MULTIPLE SALES UP TO A MAXIMUM OF 5 SINGLE LPs. THIS IS DUE TO THE SHARP INCREASE IN POSTAL CHARGES IF A PACKAGE IS OVER 2KG.
I grade all my records using the Record Collector's Grading System which is as follows:
Mint - The record itself is in brand new condition with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality. The cover and any extra items such as the lyric sheet, booklet or poster are in perfect condition. Records advertised as Sealed or Unplayed should be Mint.
Excellent - The record shows signs of having been played, but there is very little lessening in sound quality. The cover and packaging might have slight wear and/or creasing.
Very Good - The record has obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite noticable surface marks and the occasional light scratch. Normal wear and tear on the cover or extra items, without any major defects, is acceptable.
Good - The record has been played so much that the sound quality has noticeably deteriorated, perhaps with some distortion and mild scratches. The cover and contents suffer from folding, scuffing of edges, spine splits discoloration etc.
Fair - The record is still just playable but has not been cared for properly and displays considerable surface noise: it may even jump. The cover and contents will be torn, stained and/ or defaced.
Poor - The record will not play properly due to scratches, bad surface noise, etc. The cover and contents will be badly damaged or partly missing.
Items are sent out in high quality, professional record packaging, with stiffeners for protection.
