Record Store Day 2022 Metal Releases

By: the_home_for_wayward_records

Voivod - Nothingface - 1989’s breakthrough 5th album by Voivod, Nothingface is a fantastic blend of Thrash, Metal and Progressive Rock and one of my favorite metal albums of all time. This one has been out of print for decades and the OG copy of this one that I have cost me $70, so make sure to grab this one if you can.

4500 copies/Pink with Blue Swirl Vinyl


Voivod - Angel Rat - 1991’s Angel Rat, the 6th album by Voivod, continued the Thrash/Prog Rock blending that started on Nothingface and stretched it even farther. Another one that’s been out of print for decades, Angel Rat is my Voivod white whale album and I’m incredibly happy to see it getting a vinyl reissue.

4500 copies/Deep Purple with Lime Monster Green Swirl Vinyl 


Def Leppard - High & Dry - High ‘n’ Dry, Def Leppard’s second album was released in 1981 and was the first produced by long-term collaborator Robert “Mutt” Lange. Featuring the singles, “Let It Go,”  “Bringin’ on the Heartbreak” and my favorite “High 'N' Dry (Saturday Night),” it was the album that cemented their status in both the UK and America.

6000 copies/Picture Disc


Dillinger Escape Plan - Dissociation  - New, limited pressing of 2016’s final album from Dillinger Escape Plan. If you like you’re brain melted and the skin peeled off of your face, then this is the band and album for you.

1800 copies/Gold ripple vinyl


Alice In Chains - We Die - 1990’s promo only 3 song 12”, We Die Young, gets a wider release for RSD this year. Backed with “It Ain’t Like That” & the exclusive track “Killing Yourself”, this is a must have for fans of 90’s metal/grunge.

14500 copies



Alice Cooper - Brutal Planet - The first US vinyl release since 2011, Brutal Planet is a late era Alice Cooper classic. This 11 song album shows that he’s going nowhere and plans to rock for years to come.

5000 copies/Brutal Brown double 180g vinyl, pressed at 45 RPM

Motorhead - The Lost Tapes Vol. 2 - The second release in the new Motorhead - The Lost Tapes series, Volume 2 was recorded Live In Norwich on October 18, 1998 and features a blistering 22 track set featuring all the Motorhead classics you know and love. The first Volume was fantastic, so this should be equally as awesome.

2250 copies


Opeth - My Arms, Your Hearse - Few bands have undergone a transformation quite like Opeth has over their career. Moving from Death Metal into a more Progressive Metal sound, they have become increasingly huge worldwide as they’ve moved forward musically. This release, their third album, My Arms, Your Hearse, is a fully conceptual piece with each track blending seamlessly into the next from start to finish to give the impression of an hour-long suite. It was a contender for Album of the Year with many publications when it was first released in 1997. 

1500 copies/2 LP purple, white, black swirl vinyl
