Iskra Shirts / Canada

We have a few of the Iskra "Bureval" t-shirt left from the European tour which were brought back to Canada. This is a different design than the one offered in the USA by Warlord, the tour run of the "Bureval" design being a full colour one-sided print of the album artwork. Sizes small and large only.


Iskra European Tour Demo 2012 / CD and LP

A self-released, limited run of this demo was released September 2012 for Iskra's European Tour (September 19th - November 4th 2012). This eight track demo was recorded and mixed by the band July 2012 at the Iskra rehearsal room.

Featured on the demo are four new tracks from their upcoming LP; Nihil, Der Einzig, Illegal and Traume, along with three re-recorded tracks off the LP "Bureval" (2009, Agipunk), and a cover version of Immortal's "Cursed Realms of the Winterdemons".

The LP edition was pressed in an edition of 666 copies on black vinyl with the tour dates listed on the back of the sleeve. Includes a printed inner sleeve with lyrics and recording information.

The CD edition was released as a 6 panel digipak, with lyrics and tour dates printed on the inner panels.

New Arrivals - December 11th 2012

UPDATE / We have received these, so they will be priced and on the shelves for Tuesday. We may need to put in another record bin in the end for this week's new arrivals!

ORIGINAL POST / I'm going to go ahead and post these, as they will be here Monday or Tuesday at the latest. There are over 100 albums altogether in this order. Some are restocks, but also some great new reissues of classics here.

Notably, there are the much anticipated Season Of Mist vinyl reissues of WATAIN's four full-length albums. Each album comes as a gatefold (black vinyl) double LP edition. We also still have in stock from our last order the WATAIN 'Opus Diaboli' 2 LP/2CD/DVD box set of this recent live album.

From Back On Black we have much-needed reissues of CORROSION OF CONFORMITY's classic 'Eye for An Eye' and EMPEROR's 1999 live recording 'Emperial Live Ceremony'... Also in the 'not punk or metal' camp, the represses of the early HAWKWIND material and vinyl issues of early BOB DYLAN live recordings (also on Back On Black / Let Them Eat Vinyl)...

For the black thrash fans we have the new Peaceville reissues of AURA NOIR's albums 'Hades Rise' & 'The Merciless'. (Fans of black thrash should also check out Norwegian thrashers NEKROMANTHEON while their LPs are still available).

Black Raven Update for December 2012

After nearly a year at our new location, and nearly 5 years in total, it seems like time to put a quick update.

We've got many new orders on their way to Black Raven over the next few weeks; Loads of imports from the UK, Europe and USA. A little something for the winter months!

The Black Raven Records shop, for those unaware, is located near downtown Victoria BC in the Quadra Village. We have thousands of new and used records in the shop (including a couple hundred vinyls of classic rock, folk, blues, and other mixed genres); everything else in the store is from the netherworld and underbelly of punk and metal. Crust, hardcore and grind to black metal, death metal, thrash, drone, doom and all the bastard sub-genres in between... Quality vinyl reissues and originals from major and underground labels and distributions around the world, hand-selected, with the majority imported from overseas. Also, of course thousands of punk and metal CDs.

Black Raven also provides a small selection of books related to music and culture, contemporary poetry, anarchist practice and history and other books of subcultural relevance. Of course we also stock 'the other stuff'; hundreds of punk and metal shirts, studs, buttons/badges, patches, vinyl/LP cleaning systems, and DVDs

And now a bit of a visual update!
