after waiting for ages the GEHENNA / VEGAS split 7" on VEDAVU REC. that is ltd. to 100 copies finally surfaced here. now, before we go on let me tell you that you have no idea how curious I was on this record or on it's packaging to be more precise. in case that you now think that being more curious on the packaging of a record than on the music sounds a little bit retarded let me also tell you that A) I already have the music on my laptop since months and B) it was released by Jeremy on VEDAVU (if you don't know what that means I suggest you do a blog search) which means the artwork, the packaging and the music fit together and make this a real piece of art! the 7" comes with an obi-strip and the cover is a folder that opens in the middle which is sealed by a thick cardboard obi-strip. if you remove the obi to take a look at the cover you should pay attention to the fact that unlike most folders that open in the middle both sides exactly fit together if closed! the 7" comes with an extra insert for each band which have been messed up by the printer so that the back of the GEHENNA insert has the lyrics of the VEGAS track and vice versa. the split came together with a GEHENNA shirt as you can see on the last pic. as you can also see on the last pic is that mine came with an extra VEDAVU shirt that according to Jeremy is not for sale but "only for the homeboys" - thanks for that sir! about the music: the split has one track of each band per side. the GEHENNA track is called WITHIN THE PEYOTE CULT and sounds as spiteful and sick as you expect GEHENNA to sound. the VEGAS track on the flipside called THE ORIGINAL SIN brings old INTEGRITY to mind especially when it comes down to the vocals which is totally fine with me as I really like the old INTEGRITY stuff. on a side note: VEDAVU has announced upcoming releases of HOT PURSUIT, GOD'S IRON TOOTH, DEVIL, VERMAPYRE, THE ARM AND SWORD OF A BASTARD GOD, PIGS and SLEEPWALKER so you better watch out!
on another side note: during the last weeks various people have asked me for GEHENNA mp3s via e-mail. in case you are playing around with the thought to ask me if I could upload GEHENNA's fill-in-record-title for you let me safe you some time: NO! Mike Apocalypse a.k.a. Mike Cheese doesn't want GEHENNA's music to be available on blogs for download and I respect that therefore no one will get any mp3s from me! period! I somehow also doubt that all people that promised they'd not share the mp3s with anybody else in their e-mails would keep their promise!


  1. Care to share those MP3s?

  2. saludos desde genial blog :D

  3. You need to have more faith in people, I've been given a bunch of leaks by reviewer friends and they haven't gone anywhere.

    Also take into account that not all of us are rich fucks who can snort cocaine and afford VVegas/gehennah splits or even get in before the YA/bridge nine fanboys do.

    Take your fucking head out of your arse, you silly kraut fuck.

  4. @ Rammerslammer:

    you've been given them by FRIENDS not people that you didn't know and that didn't know you so what's that got to do with "having faith in people"?

    it's a pity you can't afford to snort coke cause that could help you cope with not getting your hands on the split.

    huhuhu, says the retard that told me to have more faith in people...
