I have to put together a proper list, but I know that these will be on it:
Exalt - Pale Light Every Time I Die - From Parts Unknown Full Of Hell - Full of Hell & Merzbow United Nations - The Next Four Years Sezuires - The Sanity Universal (2013, but it was rereleased this year)
I was pretty disappointed with the new Baptists LP. It's good, but I had a hard time staying interested.
It kind of happened with Love Is Love, but I got over this band super fast. The whole "Thinners of the herd" thing killed it for me too. This will be the most overhyped record of 2014, and they're going to get absolutely huge from it.
I'm pretty sure this is by the far the best ETID album to date. I've listened to it about 20 times since Sunday. I hope they work with Kurt for the rest of their career. Moor is sooooo creepy and heavy.
They probably didn't have any of the items that far ahead. I know they got the records just before the release date, but they did have over 8000 orders to ship. I live in Canada, so I'm used to waiting a long time for things to show up.
I'm still waiting for the vinyl boxset from the Misery Signals Indiegogo, actually. I'm not sure they've been pressed yet though.
If you ordered from Merchnow/Razor & Tie, it was shipped by Merchnow. If you got a special perk, it shipped directly from Ontario (where PtH live). I live a few provinces over and just got mine, so everyone else should be getting their stuff soon too.
I saw PtH last night in a 150 capacity room that had about 450 people in. Easily the best I've ever seen them play, although I was missing Arif. New drummer couldn't have been better, he played everything perfectly.
My one complaint, however, is how much they charge for merch.
