Biggest ROBOTIC EMPIRE online store update ever?! SO MUCH STUFF!!


Hope everyone survived the holidays unscathed, aka “Ho Ho HOLY CRAP” do we ever have a HUGE update for ya here! Hot on the heels of an insane few months for the Robotic Empire – Online Store, we’re ready to take 2010 HEAD ON. Saying goodbye to 2009 with a bang, we’ve got one of the largest updates to our ol’ mailorder operation EVER.

The sheer variety of music genres we’ve just stocked is maddening: grind, indie, doom, pop punk, hardcore, post-hardcore, screamo, ska(!?), etc, etc etc. TONS of stuff all across the board, this really is one of those “something for everyone” kinda situations.

A few things to highlight amongst the mountain of new titles are the slew of NADJA (and AIDAN BAKER) albums on both CD and vinyl, some more gnarly MELT BANANA releases, two new 7″s from SUIS LA LUNE, plus a pile of old No Idea vinyl we’ve never stocked before. On the re-stock tip: the always hard-to-get CORRUPTED and ENVY Japanese imports, INDIAN SUMMER “discography” CDs, the underrated CAPSULE side-project band MONARCS on both CD & vinyl, ROSETTA 2xLP imports, a bunch of different Hydra Head (and related) jams and tons of other stuff. Yes!


Another new release we really want to draw attention to is the BATTLEMASTER / INTER ARMA split 7″. Having witness both bands develop a ton over the years (and underlining both in an extensive Robotic Obscurities “Underground Richmond Metal” post) , we’re especially pumped that RVA upstart label Mirror Universe released this killer teamup. It absolutely shreds on every level, plus it has some killer “Barf” Callahan artwork (same dude who’s done a bunch of CANNABIS CORPSE t-shirt designs, amongst other rad stuff). So yeah, a highly recommended split 7″!

It’s possible we may have had a bigger update than this monster in the past, but if so its hard to know when. So much crucial stuff has come in that it’d be hard to make note of it all (or even fit it all on our shelves!). We’re also running a massive sale on 275+ items right now (including deep discounts on tons of Relapse titles)… so a lot is going on right now. Without further blah blahs, here it is:
