One King Down - Bloodlust Revenge - Orange Ltd 200

One of my favorite records. One King Down - Bloodlust Revenge on Equal Vision Records. Equal Vision is based out of Albany, and they went home town on us with this release. It's weird...I always considered OKD a Long Island band, but they aren't obviously. The reason is I first heard them doing what I loved, skating on Long Island. I was in my friend Garrett's tahoe, and when he drop this thing in, I felt like I was in the future. It was way ahead of it's time. Well I picked this up on ebay a little ways back. Maybe 50 bucks. It's the first pressing and way OOP. Totally worth it considering the history I have with the band. Rob Fusco, the vocalist on this record, now sings for Most Precious Blood. And oddly enough, when he replaced Tom as the singer, he quit a job as a chess instructor. So in honor of chess instructor Rob Fusco, I will feature a MPB album on my next record entry. Two words....Test Press.
Oh yeah this cover still has the original plastic on it....always nice to see.

NOTE: This was the first post of my new blog. Every post before this point was written in early 07 when I decided to write a blog about my records, then freaked out like 5 records in, cause I didn't like people seeing what I had. I put all 09 years on there now just for the ease of keeping them all together.

  1. Dude...tell me you would consider parting with that OKD Bloodlust on orange for an old Albany native transplanted to Los Angeles...pretty please. :-)
