In case you’ve been living under a rock, vinyl is back big time. According to the Recording Industry Association of America, 2014 mid-year report, sales of CDs and digital downloads are down. Revenue from streaming services and vinyl album sales are up. Vinyl LP sales increased an impressive 43 percent over 2013, to $146 million. Vinyl sales account for 4.6 percent of total music sales. Signs seem to point to the CD soon becoming extinct the way of the 8-track and cassette tape .

So that brings us to Record Store Day. Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1400 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally. There are Record Store Day participating stores on every continent except Antarctica. Record Store Day is now celebrated the third Saturday every April.

But did you know that Record Store Day has also expanded to Black Friday? This year Black Friday takes place on Friday, November 28th, and while Black Friday isn’t technically “Record Store Day II,” it’s really more of a special release date than a one-day “holiday.” Check out the Black Friday FAQ here.

This year Black Friday will see several rock and metal special releases from the likes of Green Day, Judas Priest, Korn, Mastodon, Metallica and more. So get out to your nearest Record Store and start your Christmas shopping off right. Check out a few of the titles below: (more…)

Overkill has debuted another all new music video for their newest single “Bitter Pill,”  from its seventeenth LP White Devil Armory. The effort is the follow up to the critically acclaimed The Electric Age, released in 2012. Directed by long time collaborator Kevin J. Custer, the video is the fourth time the veteran director has directed an Overkill video including “Armorist,” released most recently.

17 albums for Overkill now? Are you kidding me?! I remember in the late ’80’s/early ’90’s seeing their videos for “Hello From the Gutter” and “Elimination” on MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball. I became a fan back then and needless to say, I’m getting back into this new Overkill music now.
