When it comes to the origins of melodic death metal, names like At The Gates or Dark Tranquillity are probably the benchmark. In 2021, the iconic label "Invasion Records", releasing melodic death metal gems on a conveyor belt, seems to have been forgotten. Bands like Scheitan, Gates Of Ishtar or THE EVERDAWN were the order of the day, even if the quality levels were quite different.

The Everdawn, founded in 1993, celebrated the so-called "Gothenburg Death Metal" in its purest form. Their only album, "Poems - Burning The Past", with its playing time of just 35 minutes (plus bonus tracks), has to be described as the "Raining Blood" of this genre. Every riff ignites, every drum beat hits the mark, the songs are crisp and spontaneous, garnished with completely hysterical vocals that cement themselves in the auditory canals as if they had been pounded directly live.

After its re-release on Century Media a decade ago, the album was again quickly out of print and crying out to be made available again. Here we go, ladies and gentlemen: The Gothenburg death metal flagship is available again. Be sure to get it now!

The Everdawn have created THE ultimate Gothenburg death metal album with Poems - Burning The Past" and it belongs to this genre like "Raining Blood" belongs to thrash metal. Must have!" (Markus Roesner / CEO MDD Records

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.

A Note About Pre-Orders
Orders containing both pre-orders and “Available to Order” items from flyvintageandvinyl.com will be shipped in one package when the pre-order title(s) is/are released.

International Orders, Box Sets and Larger Items
may incur an additional shipping fee and we’ll notify you by email before we process your order. Customs forms for international orders are marked as "Merchandise"
and we are not responsible for any additional customs fees when packages arrive at their destination country. Select items aren't allowed to be shipped outside the U.S.
and we’ll issue a refund for these if export restrictions apply. We reserve the right to limit quantities on select items.
