CONTEST: Win Thergothon’s “Stream from the Heavens” Test Press

If Decibel was worth its weight in ink, paper, and stress—mostly on the shoulders of our beloved EIC Mr. Mudrian—then we’d have some staffers who were there when Thergothon dropped its only long-player Stream from the Heavens like a Cthulhu tentacle on wee Italy-based indie Avantgarde Music. We do have staffers who were there, bought 1 of 2000 copies (we think that’s the original press count), and were changed for eternity thereafter. In fact, Decibel scribe Scott Koerber wrote this fantastic Thergothon piece in Decibel #101 when rest-of-world bloggers and forum mites—notice we didn’t say “magazine”—were too busy sucking on the teats of something less worthy.


But we’re not here to brag about our own low-hanging balls (or first-press copies of Stream from the Heavens or This Empty Flow’s much under-missed Magenta Skycode effort) but actually the 2xLP reissue of Thergothon’s mammoth debut on Seventh Rule. That’s right, Seventh Rule got the rights and are making a deluxe 2xLP edition, lacquered by John Golden, who was responsible for Chris Isaak’s Forever Blue, Primus’ Tales from the Punchbowl, and other sound-brilliant projects. What does that mean? It’ll sound killer! It’ll shake the floors of your apartment. The heaviness of “Everlasting” will piss off your friends. And you’ll be KING ’cause there’s only 500 pressed.

But but. We want to give away a one (1) copy of Stream from the Heavens TEST PRESS. Something truly unique. An absolutely cult piece of Thergothon memorabilia, courtesy of Seventh Rule. There are only 12 in existence!


What do you have to do? Email us. That’s it!



** If you’re not feeling lucky—that stack of old lottery tickets is probably telling you something—then Seventh Rule has the reissue available for the doomed and funeral doomed to order. Click HERE. You’ll be luckier than any character from the depths of any HP Lovecraft story that’s for sure. And, hey, we know the depths of despair they’ve been through. Kind of.
