Midnight Funeral 7"s

A couple of the records that I have been expecting (see yesterdays post), though not all of them. Hopefully there will be some more wax to post about tomorrow.
My Midnight Funeral Records order arrived today. Two new Australian releases from Craig's label, I don't get hugely excited about either of these bands, but there are definitely worse out there.
They both came in this screened mailer, something that I was quite fond of.
Canberra's I Exist 'Three Nails And A Book Of Flaws" 7" on red (second press) of 200. I was expecting a first press, Craig had told me that I'd get one, I'm not too fussed though. Hailed as a new 'crust' sensation, I am having trouble really seeing or hearing anything crust about these guys. They sound more like a second rate Mammoth Grinder to me, clearly ripping on bands like Crowbar and Eyehategod. I may sound somewhat unenthused, but it's not necessarily a bad thing, and I don't mind this. I just have trouble with the unfounded crust tag these guys seem to have developed. I've met a few of these guys before, there's nothing crust about them. Anyway I'm rambling...
Artwork by Rohan Harrison. Came with a cloth patch.
The labels founder Craigs band The Seduction "Black Cranes" 7" on 'gold' of 100, though it looks more like shit green to me. The band has released all 300 copies of this record with this rad screen printed cover. It's two colours, and rather impressive. This band has somewhat changed its sound over the last 18 months or so. I never paid too much attention to their previous CD releases, but I distinctly remember a more modern metalcore sound ala Parkway Drive or something, whereas this ep reminds me alot of Converge and Integrity.
Also came with a cloth patch.
Quality screening.
