Trouble's classic debut album from 1984 with faithfully restored audio represents everything that Doom Metal should be. Trouble's early work and, in particular, "Psalm 9" represent everything that Doom Metal should be (but so often is not). Think about it, here is a band who are really rather diverse, with regard to tempo, arrangements and mood, and are not afraid to break the mould of what is typically expected of a Doom band. For 1984 this is an incredibly contemporary record; it's Doom to the bone, but also thrashy and featuring some, for the time, modern Heavy Metal touches. At it's heart there's nothing regressive or throw-backy about this record. Honestly, it makes one laugh when stuff like this is called 'traditional doom metal'; what is traditional about it? Bands like Trouble and Candlemass weren't operating in an established tradition, they were forging their own sound. Too often one hears doom bands who really take the Metal out of Doom. Doom nowadays often seems to be a byword for "play slow, minimise your Metallic leanings". Of course, "Psalm 9" answers to one's prayers as it has lead guitar and fast parts in abundance. Contrast is key to it's success and every stomping, down-trodden riff is offset by a fast break. Trouble love playing slow, but damn, they'll rip your face off, too! RE-PRESS Black vinyl 09/29/20

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.
