Southern Lord celebrate 20 years with limited edition vinyl subscription and reissue series ft. Sunn O))), Thorr's Hammer, and more

Everyone has to find a way to compete with Netflix these days, huh? Even metal label Southern Lord is getting in on that sweet subscription action to celebrate 20 droning years of pinch harmonics and nigh indecipherable vocals (that’s what metal is, right?).

Yeah, you heard me right (unless you stood too close to the front at a Sunn O))) show fourteen years ago and haven’t heard the same since): Southern Lord are reissuing eight indispensable, classic records on limited edition silver vinyl for a new subscription service! (Who’s gonna be the one to tell them the silver anniversary is actually 25 years?)

But as with any subscription service, it’s all about what’s on offer — so here’s the breakdown of the six ultra rare, mega limited, extremely silver albums announced so far, with two currently TBA:

The Want - Greatest Hits Vol. 5
Toadliquor - Discography
Thorr’s Hammer - Live By Command of Tom G. Warrior
Sunn O))) - Downtown Rehearsal/Riff Tape March 1998
The Secret - Lux Tenebris
Rein Sanction - Rein Sanction (Black Album)

I can feel the sheer rarity radiating off my computer screen! (Or maybe I just have the brightness set too high.)

Naturally, all this wax gold comes at a price; and that price is exactly $275.00 USD for American customers (for international customers, check your local listings). Of course, that price includes extra goodies, including download codes, a T-shirt, and a special slipmat — which is the second most metal of all record player accessories after, duh, THE NEEDLE. For more details and to order, head over to Southern Lord’s X-treeeeeeeeme webstore. Happy subscribing!

That SLIPMAT, tho!
