That was seriously one fast delivery. If anyone is familiar with the message board here, you may recall me mentioning I had one, and only one, music-related collectible, and calling it a "collectible" is a stretch to say the least (a Pantera concert ticket stub from 1994.) Well, after the mailman (or mailwoman... not sure as I never pay attention... let's just say mail PERSON) dropped off the mail today, I am proud to say I now have not ONE, but TWO music-related collectibles. I'm adding A Pale Horse Named Death's CD, which Sal so graciously signed, to my minuscule "collection."
Those of you who've taken advantage of APHND's offering of YouTube streams that iterate through (almost) every song on this release will be interested to know, if you weren't paying close enough attention, that there is a track not available via YouTube. It's Track #1. I'm not going to spoil it, but let's just say it's a very appropriate introduction to the band's material, and segues perfectly into the rest of the material.
Speaking of the material, it was in the early afternoon when the CD arrived. Not so coincidentally I hadn't done my workout for the day (no, I'm not a meat-head "ready to get his swell on".) I used the opportunity and tossed this into the CD player and cranked it up. If anyone else needs motivational music to box and kickbox to, this is an excellent means to get your ass fired up to beat the shit out of heavy bags, your sparring partner, or that dickhead who always peels out as he turns the corner close to your house.
I'm going to savor this new music for a while. It's been a long time since I've had any new music that hits the spot, but thankfully APHND has come to the rescue.
P.S. Big thanks to Sal for the quick turn-around time and signed digipack.
