Kill The Noise'
ADAD-OWS-6759xKill The Noise
Occult Classic180 Gram Clear Vinyl
The 'OCCULT CLASSIC' LP opens with the Rock City and
AWOLNATION featured "Kill It 4 the Kids" single, whose
whirlwind of lighters-up metal, signature bass growls and
festival sized synthwork make up one of the release's many
style hopping switch ups; including the Youtube flavored
Baltimore Club of the "Dolphin on Wheels" collaboration with
Dillon Francis, the rowdy dubstep-meets-drum & bass head
banger, "Spitfire Riddim" with Madsonik, and the razor sharp
bassline-backed electro thump of "Louder" with Tommy
At times, the album feels like a snapshot of his adrenaline
fueled live sets, which he's performed from some of the
most iconic stages in the world (Coachella, Lollapalooza,
EDC Las Vegas, Holy Ship! and the Mad Decent Block
Party). In the midst of touring and working on music over
the last few years, Kill the Noise has also received MTV
Clubland's Music Video pick of the year twice (2012,
2013), he's collaborated on official releases with Skrillex,
Korn, Passion Pit, and Flux Pavilion, and he co-wrote and
produced 2014's "Shell Shocked" from Paramount

Pleasure To KillRemastered Versions By Andy Pearce And Overseen By Mille Petrozza
Featuring New Art
Packed With Rare Photos And Memorabilia And Notes By Mille And Malcolm Dome (Metal Hammer) Talking About The Creation Of The Albums
Contains Kreator's Flag Of Hate EP
Pleasure To Kill, the second studio album by Kreator, was released in November 1986 originally by Noise Records. The lyrical themes follow those found on their first album. Unleashed in 1986 and still considered the band's first classic album, Pleasure to Kill raised the bar with more diversity of tempos and greater attention to technical execution while losing nothing in terms of ferocity or speed. The band closed out the year with the Flag of Hate EP (named after a re-recorded version of their earliest hit) which is included on this version. Many death metal bands cite this album as an influence. Pleasure To Kill is widely considered a thrash classic. It is also considered a landmark album in the history of thrash metal along with Master of Puppets by Metallica, Reign In Blood by Slayer and Darkness Descends by Dark Angel, all released in 1986.
Formed in Essen, Germany in 1982, Kreator is arguably the most influential and successful European thrash metal band ever, like many of their European speed metal brethren, Kreator fused Metallica's thrash innovations with Venom's proto-black metal imagery. Kreator has been referred to as one of the Big 4 of Teutonic thrash metal, and they are often credited with helping pioneer death metal and black metal by containing several elements of what was to become those genres. The band has achieved worldwide sales of over two million units for combined sales of all their albums, making them one of the best-selling German thrash metal bands of all time. Kreator's style has changed several times over the years, from a Venom-inspired speed metal sound, later moving into thrash metal, and including a period of transitioning from thrash to industrial metal and gothic metal throughout the 1990s. In the early 2000s, Kreator returned to their classic thrash sound, which has continued to the present.LP 1

Killing Technology (Awaiting Repress)Remastered From The Original Tapes
Pressed On High-Quality Heavyweight Vinyl
Artwork Replicated From The Original Release
Voivod is a Canadian heavy metal band from Quebec that formed in 1982. They started out as a speed metal band while adding a mix of progressive and thrash metal to create their own unique style. They were one of the first thrash bands from Canada to receive international acclaim. The band has released eleven studio albums and a number of EPs, live albums, demos, and DVDs. The band is still touring and are set to release a new album in 2017.
The band's third full album perfectly reinforces their image of a post-apocalyptic wasteland set against a thrashing-punk-speed-metal soundscape. It was released on Noise Records in 1987. This definitive re-issue of VOIVOD's Killing Technology is a must-have item for any fan of this unique and ground-breaking Progressive Metal band.1. Killing Technology

iFi Audio iSilencer3.0
Have a question about this product? Please email our audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.
The iSilencer3.0® is an instant upgrade for all USB ports; it adds the following features to the USB ports:
- Active Noise Cancellation® technology
- Reduce jitter + packet errors
- REbalance® the USB signal
- USB3.0 technology for optimal transfer
The iSilencer3.0® is the most direct and simple upgrade for any USB port, it lowers noise/RFI/EMI by up to 40dB or 100x.
It is ideal for the home and on-the-go improvement of all devices connected to the USB port, e.g. Computer Servers, Mixers, Hard drives etc. Regardless of the system; from US$10,000 to US$100, the iSilencer3.0® terminates noise, in its tracks.
Active Noise Cancellation® by AMR/iFi is in-house technology developed to cut out noise in a very significant way in the audio field. It is now the bedrock of iFi signal/power products because they need to address the issue of noise in both signal and power situations.
What is the Active Noise Cancellation circuit design?
Drawing from the military field (specifically the Thales Spectra radar cancellation system deployed in the French Dassault Rafale jet fighter), iFi adapted this technology to exclusively introduce the Active Noise Cancellation® (ANC®) audio power system. It is now a cornerstone of the ever-improving iFi USB audio technology, looking for new products to feature ANC® and ANC+®
By generating a signal identical to the noise signal but in the exact opposite phase, it actively cancels all the incoming noise. ANC® is the perfect 'antidote' for power supply noise, the bane of USB audio.
ANC® measured, noise drops by 100 times or 40dB in comparison to the Common Noise Filter. Sonically, the background and inner resolution to recordings is enhanced.
The iSilencer3.0® can be used not only at the active USB ports but also at unused USB ports where it will reduce radiated EMI and as the ANC® circuitry is bi-directional and usually as all USB ports share one power bus. The iSilencer3.0® cuts noise, system-wide for all USB ports, including for example an active port that has another iSilencer3.0® plugged-in which is the one connected to another device.
Multiple ANC® circuits will simply double the noise reduction each time the number of ANC® units is doubled. So 2 x iSilencer3.0® will kill double the noise of a single-one and four for example will kill four times the noise of a single one; if they are plugged into the same block of USB Ports and even though only one iSilencer3.0® has one device (e.g. DAC) connected into it.
It is now a hallmark of all the latest iFi signal and power products to be USB3.0 standard. First USB3.0 is backwards compatible with USB2.0. Second, in terms of the specifications, USB3.0 is superior to USB2.0 e.g. the wire gauge specification is more exhaustive and the connections are better.
Hence, the iSilencer3.0® is USB3.0 standard but also 2.0 compatible.$49.00Audio Noise Eliminator Buy Now

ADAD-JOY-0167xJoan of Arc
He's Got The Whole This Land Is Your Land In His HandsTwenty years now there's been this thing, our band, Joan of Arc. Sometimes we forget about it
and let it fizzle out for a year while we tend to our lives. Sometimes we cling to it for a year and
wake up surprised and exhausted every day for months on end, given walking tours of old
Italian towns, browsing dreary British pedestrian malls or barefooted organic grocers on the
Pacific coast. We know how lucky we are.
The less we feel like a band-the more we can continue to be a band, but escape that feeling of
doing all those shitty, corny things expected of bands-the truer to ourselves we feel. And you
all know it, everyone knows it even if everyone has to bury it to get on with their day-to-day:
the truer to ourselves we feel, the better everything gets.
We have shifted shapes and modified our approaches quite a number of times in the course of
twenty years. And we've done so always aiming to stay true to ourselves at that moment, by
instinct and with conscious intent. This time, it took us a long time to figure out how to start
back up. We threw away a lot of songs and started over, over and over.
But here's the thing: We are getting better at being ourselves. So many of the postures of
youth just fall away with time. Most bands break up by that point, or become caricatures of
their younger selves. Because money is tricky, or I should say, it comes to be that energy is
tricky to muster after all of it goes into the basics of sustaining yourself.
Every day, at some point, it occurs to me that Richard Brautigan killed himself at the age that I
am now. But I got this community of weirdo collaborators to lean on that he never had.
We've never had an audience that gets any validation of its coolness through liking us. We've
mangled, juxtaposed, and collaged too many elements for that social contract. But we trust
This time, finally, we trusted each other enough to throw all the songs away, to even throw
away every preconceived idea about which one of us should take position at which instrument.
We hit Record and played, and our collective tastes emerged. And they, our tastes in the
moment, were the only standards in all the expanse of the stupefying and beautiful unknown
universe, that we regarded as relevant in the least.1. Smooshed That Cocoon

StonedhengeA Premium RTI Pressing, From The Original U.K. Mono Masters
Ten Years After's eponymous debut hit the door with a loud thud. Undead cracked it. And with 1969's Stonedhenge, they knocked it down with authority, stormed the palace and showed the world that they were indeed a major act. Stonedhenge was where Ten Years After really came into their own with originals. "Hear Me Calling" is brilliant modern blues on par with the best of early Fleetwood Mac, rising from a restrained beginning to all-out rocking before repeating the cycle one last time. "Going to Try" explores similar territory, even venturing into a Middle-Eastern inspired section underscored by randomized percussion overdubs and Chick Churchill's psychedelic organ. "Woman Trouble" is stirring jazzy blues, and on "No Title," the band really cuts loose - kicking off with a standard blues lament before unleashing a series of solos that are almost songs unto themselves: Alvin Lee's power-chord solo making way for Churchill's spooky organ making way for a badass jam between drummer Ric Lee and bassist Leo Lyons. The band was running like a freight train - and in fact, train noises grace the beginning of album finale "Speed Kills," a bluesy boogie that pushes the meter straight into the red before the thrill-ride literally comes to a screeching halt. But not before the album fully displays the band's world-class musicianship and songwriting, which made Stonedhenge a hit in the UK and gave Ten Years After their first-ever Billboard Top 100 entry, at a respectable #61 in April 1969. In turn, it paved the way for the band's acclaimed performance at Woodstock, which ensured regular placement on the album charts for years to come.
For now, dig the first vinyl reissue of the ultra-rare mono mix of Stonedhenge, housed in its original gatefold cover artwork and meticulously mastered for the most discerning listener.
Now Sundazed proudly presents the searing guitar of Alvin Lee & Chick Churchill's haunting organ textures as they were meant to be heard, from the original U.K. MONO masters and pressed on premium RTI vinyl!1. Going To Try

ForeverThe follow up album to 2014's breakthrough I AM KING, FOREVER is heralded by the LP's title track and accompanying official music video. Rolling Stone exclaims, FOREVER captures some of the most punishing noise the band has recorded to date, featuring songs rife with sudden transitions to still-harsher textures.
Code Orange drummer / co-vocalist Jami Morgan detailed the band's new LP in an exclusive interview with Rolling Stone stating, Everywhere we've turned, we've met a lot of 'You're not this enough for this, or that enough for that, FOREVER opens it up by saying, 'F*ck you, we're here. We're gonna do whatever the f*ck we wanna do, and there are no rules.'
Recorded with producers Will Yip at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA and Kurt Ballou at GodCity Studios in Salem, MA, FOREVER is a jarring and experimental body of work, pushing the envelope with songs like; Bleeding In The Blur, Kill The Creator, and Spy.1. Forever

Pattern + Grid WorldPattern + Grid World is the new EP from producer/musician Steven Ellison (aka Flying Lotus). While his album Cosmogramma was high in concept and wide in musical collaboration, Pattern + Grid World pulls the focus back to Ellison and his machines. These machines are speaking from the go, as Clay introduces itself in a fog of synth and vocoder and gives way to one of the many surprises here, the schizophrenic ping-ponging electro of Kill Your Co-Workers. Drenched in alternating melodies, it's a synthetic counterpart to the grand string and harp arrangements of Cosmogramma, making acclaimed illustrator Theo Ellsworth's subtly psychedelic cover image of vision-through-noise all the more intimate.1.

Mobile Fidelity PLUS Enzyme LP Cleaning FluidMobile Fidelity PLUS Enzyme LP Cleaning Fluid Removes All Organic Materials Embedded in the Grooves of Your Precious Vinyl Records. Nothing on the Market Works as Well to Remove Oils, Sweat, Smoke and Mold!
Mobile Fidelity PLUS Enzyme Cleaner for all Vinyl LPs is a revolution in record cleaning! PLUS uses enzymes to more completely clean records than any other fluid we've found.
Most sound degrading contaminants found on records are organic in nature, oils and sweat from hands, skin, hair and other minuscule particles of dust are attracted by electrostatic charges on the vinyl and can become deeply embedded in the vinyl. The best way to remove these is with an enzyme specifically designed for this purpose. By coating the play surface with PLUS Enzyme Cleaning Fluid and allowing it to sit on the record surface for 3-5 minutes, the enzymes will break the particles down and loosen them from the grooves.
Highly purified, high surface tension water is used as the base for PLUS - water that will bead up, removing contaminants and holding them in the water beads, rather than allowing them to settle back into the grooves.
Using PLUS is a revelation, even on a clean record, the improvement is shocking. Drastically lower noise floor, increased dynamic range, richer tonal balance and clear undistorted peaks. Put simply, PLUS reveals more of the information that's been hiding in the grooves.
To get the most out of PLUS, we highly recommend using Mobile Fidelity PURE Record Rinse. PURE is ultra-pure water that has gone through four stages of deionization, after which it is triple-distilled, then treated with high intensity ultraviolet light to kill all bacteria and microbiological particles. This intense and thorough process leaves nothing in PURE to harm your vinyl.
Mobile Fidelity has a history of setting industry standards. We are the first to provide this quality of care in our base and rinse water. The ultraviolet light purification sets the bar for the competition to once again play catch-up. Call us today to learn more about how analog lovers can benefit from Mobile Fidelity PLUS Enzyme Cleaning Fluid.$29.99Record Cleaning Fluid Buy Now
London ZooIn Gibson's Neuromancer, when Case and Molly meet the two surviving founders of Zion, there is talk of hearing a mighty dub in the Babel of tongues signaling the final days. If indeed we're living in these end times, as many predict, then there can be no more of an appropriate soundtrack for the coming apocalypse than The Bug's London Zoo.
The Bug is the main project for Kevin Martin, a producer who has headed a diverse range of projects. He is part of Techno Animal, Ice, and God (all with Justin Broadrick of Godflesh and Jesu), King Midas Sound, Razor X Productions (with The Rootsman), Pressure, and Ladybug; runs his Pathological Records label; and has collaborated with noise jazz outfit 16-17, Pete Sonic Boom Kemper's E.A.R. project, John Zorn, Kevin Shields, El-P, and the Antipop Consortium. He has recorded for Rephlex, Position Chrome/Mille Plateaux, Word Sound, Hyperdub, City Slang, Tigerbeat 6, Grand Royal, and now Ninja Tune. He has been personally asked to remix Thom Yorke, Grace Jones, Einsturzende Neubauten, and Primal Scream, and compiled jazz and dub compilations for Virgin Records. London Zoo is the fruition of all these activities.
The album was born of three key moments: an introduction to the thriving dubstep scene (of which The Bug is very much a pioneer from before it carried a name) and its key producers (via Kode 9 and Loefah) where Martin realized there were others on the same sonic trajectory as himself; an introduction to Warrior Queen via his work with Wayne Lonesome on the Razor X Productions project; and a Mary Anne Hobbs Breezeblock session which introduced him to Flowdan (Roll Deep) and Ricky Ranking. All three of these figure heavily in the end result and live presentation.
The obvious entry point to the album is the dubstep tag, particularly after the success of the three lead-up singles, but London Zoo clearly reaches past, brings together, and celebrates reference points from dancehall, grime, hip-hop, and noise-- it could have only come out of London sound-system culture, while its appeal spans cities and scenes.
From the opening strains of Angry (featuring reggae legend Tippa Irie) it's clear that the world has been served notice from the heart of the UK capital. The message is further strengthened as Ranking (best known for his work with Roots Manuva), Flowdan, Warrior Queen, Spaceape, Roger Robinson, Killa P, and Aya step up to lay waste to the boombastic rhythms put before them, eventually culminating in Judgement where Ranking leaves us with a prophecy: So much people are losing their minds, because we're living in a serious time. I guess it come in like a judgment sign, the people have killing on their mind. Living in end times, indeed. Best start building the Marcus Garvey tug now.Angry ft Tippa Irie

Get BackIt's doubtful that Stephen McBean set out to make The Great Rock 'N' Roll Primer when he started conjuring the
songs that would come to be Pink Mountaintops' Get Back.
The record's beginnings were reasonably straightforward: McBean had moved to Los Angeles, taken a long hiatus
from Black Mountain and an even longer one from Pink Mountaintops when he met producer Joe Cardamone, lead
singer of Icarus Line at Valley Recording Company in Burbank,CA.The two bonded quickly over Flying Nun bands,
Television Personalities, Roxy Music, Johnny Thunders, and Born Against. Joe was excited to meet someone he
actually liked. Stephen was excited to work with someone who said Sing it like you would've sung it when you were
21. Simple enough,right?
But ask him to set the scene and you'll hear about a motorcycle shop owned by Michael Barragan, former member
of Los Angeles noise rock band Plexi. You'll hear about an endless supply of rock 'n' roll video documentation for
last minute inspiration or de-evolution in the living room.Ask who's on the record and you'll get a constellation of
greats:J Mascis(DinosaurJr &Witch),Rob Barbato (Darker My Love,The Fall & Cass McCombs), Steve Kille (Dead
Meadow), Daniel Allaire (Brian Jonestown Massacre, Cass McCombs & Darker My Love), Annie Hardy (Giant
Drag), Jon Wahl(Clawhammer), and Gregg Foreman (Cat Power & Delta 72).Randal Dunn (Sunn O))),Earth, Sun
City Girls, Boris) mixed Get Back at Avast! Studios (Bikini Kill, Mudhoney, Christ On A Crutch, Soundgarden) in
Seattle. Howie Weinburg (Nirvana, Beastie Boys, Danzig, Ramones, Slayer) mastered it in Laurel Canyon.
Ask about the record itself and McBean will tell you about Alleys, curbs, walls, and cigarette stained gig flyers.An
island on the Pacific coast. Fake British towns. Slayer posters.The beauty of youth.It's about listening to Driver's Seat
and 'Guns of Brixton' and hotboxing The Duster. And suddenly it becomes clear: when the aliens do touch down
and they don't know rock 'n'roll, you can play them Get Back start to finish, and that'll be all they need.
Get Back comes out swinging with Ambulance City, a head-trip of a song with a chugging, insistent, oddly timeless
guitar riff sitting front and center.The Second Summer of Love needs almost no explanation; it dives into 80s VHS
saturation and never comes up for air. Sell Your Soul is a deep sigh and a motorcycle ride, a roll in the grass
lamenting summertime blues with a little grit and a little harmony. And North Hollywood Microwaves is
downright obscene. But what better way to start Side B than this? You can listen at hushed volumes so your parents
don't hear, you can crank it in a dorm room, you can smirk to yourself from the safety of rock 'n'roll's old age.You
start to wonder- why don't all Side Bs start with a song like this one
The number of platitudes in music hit critical mass years ago, and among those tropes is that annoying, inescapable
mantra:rock 'n'roll is undefinable.And yeah,sure, that's true. It's different things to different people. It starts with
guitars, maybe, and ends with a stage-dive, or spit, or feedback. Rock 'n'roll is drugs, is rebellion, is youth, is sex, is
cosmic. It's wanting more than you have.Rock 'n'roll is butts and cigarette butts.And Pink Mountaintops might not
be the best-known band ever to make rock 'n' roll, but in Get Back they just might have written its scripture -- an
exploration and celebration of what, exactly,rock 'n'roll can be.1. Ambulance City

After nine years of existence, Fullerton's Audacity has left the garage of their
humble 9th grade beginning, but the garage hasn't left the spirit of their
music. With two LPs, a slew of EPs, and no shortage of touring under their
belts, Audacity are hardly a wet-behind-the-ears rock band. Their
razor-sharp musicianship and high-energy performances were solid enough
to earn them the privilege of serving as the backing band for both King Tuff
and Todd Congelliere (Toys That Kill, Underground Railroad to Candyland).
And while you could hear the band pushing at the boundaries on their prior
releases-a nod to Descendents melodic hardcore here, a dash of
Replacements' bar-band irtations there-Audacity seems less interested in
showing a broad swath of inuences as they are in delivering the craftiest
hooks and sweatiest live show possible.
Audacity's latest full-length Butter Knife is still, at its core, a garage rock
record. The economic instrumentation, grit-tinged guitar jangle,
pogo-prompting tempos, and sing-along choruses can all be traced back to
the seminal Nuggets collections. But ultimately, Butter Knife doesn't sound so
much like an homage to The Sonics as it sounds like a young band striving to
make the most ebullient and jubilant noise possible. Album opener "Couldn't
Hold A Candle" is a perfect introduction to Audacity's battle plan-a
balanced blend of pop sensibility and ribald power. "Hole In The Sky"
showcases the band's gift for the on-the-dime changes, sophisticated
melodies, and clever instrumental interplay. "Red Wine" demonstrates a
Robert Pollard-like knack for turning an unexpected chord combination into a
remarkably punchy chorus. And album closer "Autumn" harkens back to the
balladry of power pop kings Big Star. All of which is to say, Audacity are
tighter and more clever than your average suburban band, and consequently
they're one of the strongest acts in the Southern Californian garage rock
scene surrounding Fullerton's DIY label Burger Records (Black Lips, Nobunny,
Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees).1. Couldn't Hold A Candle

Poets Were My HeroesMorning Glory is made up of the stuff that the gritty, punk-crust motherland of New York's infamous Lower East Side has been known to spawn. This group of punkers and squatters had very humble beginnings indeed. Already in various other New York punk bands, Morning Glory first became the spark of an idea when Ezra Kire (Leftöver Crack, Choking Victim, INDK) took time off from touring and started to write some tunes in his NYC apartment.
In 2001, with nothing but a drum machine and an 8-track reel-to-reel, Ezra wrote and recorded the songs that would become Morning Glory's first LP, This Is No Time ta Sleep. Though it was self-recorded, home-released and had no touring support, it still managed to create a small but ubiquitous underground buzz. With a virtuosic range of musical elements such as ska, punk, metal, and even some rhyming, its catchy, anthemic sing-alongs showcased Ezra's flourishing writing talents. And while his lyrics stayed true to the caustic political edge of his other bands, the overall message remained more optimistic and leaned towards the humanistic, personal side of life.
In 2002, Ezra finally assembled a live band, handpicking musicians from the local NYC punk scene, including members of Nausea, World/Inferno Friendship Society and Stockyard Stoics. This lineup recorded the EP, The Whole World is Watching, released on Blacknoise Records in 2003. While the years that followed were spent recording and touring with Leftöver Crack, Morning Glory took a back seat.
But after these long years of touring, Ezra finally decided to give Morning Glory the attention it deserved in 2010 and began writing songs for what was to become the epic new album, Poets Were My Heroes. In the summer of 2011, Ezra and the band (with longtime members Early Gates, "Metal" Chris and Lucky Strano alongside new guitarist Adam Schrager) hit the studio with a barrage of new material. Picture the sonic kaleidoscope of punk noise meeting strings, horns, choirs, pianos and organs over a web of distorted guitars and marching, single kick pedal drums.
These are the sounds that make up Poets Were My Heroes, Morning Glory's Fat Wreck Chords debut and first full-length album recorded with a live band. Re-enlisting producer Jesse Cannon (The Menzingers, Saves the Day), a wealth of material was recorded, with only the very strongest songs being chosen to make up the album. It is both grand and elaborate, with each song evoking a different mood and style, challenging the musicianship of even the most dexterous players, while still maintaining its punk-inspired simplicity.
While the band itself has described themselves as "somewhere between Oasis and The Clash," they continue to break rules and write music that is true only to themselves, adhering to no genres, creeds or political factions. The sing-along choruses give the band a broader appeal than the standard politi-kill punk acts, but the key message is more subversive: "Think for yourself, decide for yourself, make up your own mind and love your friends. Only you know what is right for you. Together we are what we can't be alone." It's this unity in diversity that makes the band special and not just another punk outfit.

Technically speaking, fire is not an object, but an event: the rapid oxidation of a material in the chemical process of combustion by which heat and light are released into the surrounding environment. What we typically think of as "fire"-the often mysteriously beautiful and strangely hypnotic fireplace flicker of white, yellow, or red-orange glow-is actually just the visible part of the fire's flame, containing the superheated byproducts of the fire's incomplete exothermic reaction giving off visible light as excess energy is released. Interestingly, the cherry-red flame of a smoldering campfire measures somewhere around 700 Celsius; the deep orange flame of a candle, lit at a bedside or suffusing a living room with gentle aroma, typically burns at around 1000 Celsius; and the dazzling white flame created by a meteor as it enters Earth's atmosphere can often exceed 1500 Celsius! While fire is commonly considered to be a destructive event, it can also be a very effective tool for managing and enhancing fields, forests, and wetlands: Native Americans discovered that while fire killed woody plants, it encouraged the growth of fruit-bearing shrubs and forage-producing grasslands. Of course, fire's unique potential has been known for some time: It's likely that humans began using fire to heat food approximately 1 million years ago.
Among the classical elements, fire is commonly associated with energy, assertiveness, and passion. In Greek Mythology, the cult hero Prometheus defied the gods by providing humanity the gift of fire, thereby enabling progress and civilization. People born under the astrological signs of Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are thought to have fire personalities: They are enthusiastic, extroverted, and, like our good friend Prometheus, they are rebellious, passionate, brave, and valiant. It's no wonder that we have for so long been drawn to fire. A thing to be feared, respected, and loved, fire is that which drives us into the unknown, lights our way through darkness, and signals our way back home.
SOLID PERFECT-SURFACE SILVER (PSS) CONDUCTORS: Solid conductors prevent both strand-to-strand contacts and magnetic interaction, major sources of distortion. Surface quality is critical because a conductor can be considered as a rail-guide for both the electric fields within a conductor, and for the magnetic fields outside the conductor. While less perfectly processed silver can have the same irritating tweeter-in-your-face sound as silver-plated strands, PSS Silver's smooth surface, extraordinarily careful processing, and high purity, deliver sound as smooth and beautiful as our PSC+ Copper, but with significantly higher resolution.
DIELECTRIC-BIAS SYSTEM (DBS, US Pat #S 7,126,055 & 7,872,195 B1): Creates a strong, stable electrostatic field which saturates and polarizes (organizes) the molecules of the insulation. This dramatically reduces dielectric induced smearing of the signal, letting sound emerge from a "black" background.
CARBON-BASED 8-LAYER NOISE-DISSIPATION (NDS): Shields-the-shield, reducing RFI contamination of the equipment ground plane.
FEP AIR-TUBES (FEP IS A FLUORO-POLYMER): Almost no contact between conductors and insulation reduces smearing and preserves dynamics.
TRIPLE-BALANCED GEOMETRY: Proper ground-reference conductor prevents using the shield as an inferior ground-reference conductor.

W.A.S.P. The Best Of The Best (Out of Stock)Blackie Lawless launched W.A.S.P. on the unsuspecting world in 1983 and before long tales of their outrageous music and intense stage shows were legendary.
In the last few years of the old century W.A.S.P. made some of their most striking and brave albums. The ferocious, blood-splattered Kill Fuck Die and the celebratory sleazefest of Helldorado had provided solid proof
that Blackie Lawless' songwriting skills were as keen and unique as ever and, unlike the majority of his 80s contemporaries, this most dogged and determined of frontmen was entering a new era full of confidence,
with that blazing inferno in his eyes clearly a long way from fizzling out.
The 15 tracks featured on The Best Of The Best prove that while the theatrics and shock tactics of Blackie Lawless might have gained the headlines, it was what W.A.S.P. did on record that gained them legions of fans. An exhilarating rock'n'roll rollercoaster, this double disc set collects themost incendiary moments from a career built on mixing snarling sexual noise with carnage, chaos and controversy.
Collecting tracks from all the classic W.A.S.P. albums, including W.A.S.P., The Last Command and The Headless Children, this double 180g black vinyl gatefold edition, released through Madfish of The Best Of The Best provides the definitive document of a blistering career. The Best Of The Best features the W.A.S.P. cuts - Animal (F**K Like A Beast), I Wanna Be Somebody, Wild Child and a rip roaring cover of Elton
