xDisciplex - The Revelation [Organised Crime]

Mad love for this group, I've posted a couple of times about how much I dig them, this is not going to be any different.  This is the final full length, came out in about '03, they stripped down to a 4-piece this time and the sound is less breakdown heavy and much faster than previous efforts.  If truth be told I think I prefer this one to the earlier stuff, especially vocally, gone are the raspy grunting vocal style from the 'No Blood, No Altar Now' era and in are a more shouty style, almost as if Dan Quiggle is doing an impression of Ray Cappo for want of a better comparison.  I didn't know this got a vinyl release as the CD was on Triple Crown who did the last Shockwave record and that didn't get a vinl release so I assumed they jibbed the idea off.  That's where Organised Crime steps in, it's one of the dudes who used to work at Victory since the good old days and he started his own label, this is OCR002.  I've got a 3-way live split 7" with The Promise and Terror from ages ago that I didn't realise was on this label, looking at the discog they've been putting out pretty good shit since the beginning.  So this Disciple record came on 3 colours, all with screen printed covers, they're not the full sleeve kind, but the ones that are a folded sheet of card with a third height back, I've not got any LP's with this kind of cover, plenty of 7"s though.  They're all hand numbered out of 750, according to the OCR site they had a lot more covers made up than records, I guess it was a printing error or something, wouldn't mind having one of the spare ones to frame.

I didn't think I'd be getting anything special other than the three LP's but when I opened the package I actually got one of the 50 final show covers.  I remember them announcing the show and there was serious debate whether I should make the trip to Erie to attend, I kind of wish I did but I was broke, cry me a river.
Front cover:
Back (47/50, tight):
The final show cover is out of 50 and the white vinyl that comes with it is out of 108.
Grey out of 105
Red out of 700
This is the back of the regular cover, the lyrics are on an A4 copied cover, the whole package has a real DIY vibe going on, it's a good choice.  Makes for a more individual look in the end I think.  My Disciple collection is coming along nicely, I'll have 4 different versions of the Scarab 7" soon too, I only have two at the moment.
It's getting to the point where I have enough Disciple vinyl to be able to take a photo of the whole collection, there are still a few gems I need to seek out before I do though, it'd be embarassing to take a photo with an easy to find one missing wouldn't it.
