Since the original source flacs are 55 mins...Anyone knows what they shortened to make it 45mins at most?

Very helpful comment. Strongly encourage you to add these to the release notes as they seem pretty accurate.

They cut down 2 of the songs in length. Check the MP3s.

i dont have this on LP but exmilitary is about 48 minutes,with those edits mentioned, they probably shortened it by a minute or two

They shortened a bunch of the instrumental parts of the album- The small audio snippet at the end of Lord of the Game (- 4 seconds)- A good chunk of Cut Throat (- 12 seconds)- The end of Klink before the drum sample comes in. (- 31 seconds)- Half of 5D (- 18 seconds)- Part of the end of Thru the Walls (- 15 seconds)And somehow this was enough to fit it on one record.

How do you know they pressed more than 500? Because you're a doctor? You stayed at a Holiday Inn last night? You're a genius. Unless you worked at the pressing plant and pressed them, don't be a dingus.

Also, this record's resale value is insane enough that it used to change hands a lot. I would not be surprised if half the people counted here had sold their copy and just forgot to remove it from their Collections.

this album was released in higher quantity, so yeah. it isn't surprising that so many people say they own it.

Heh. Stumbled across this one at Amoeba Records during 2012's Memorial Day weekend. $20 new. Most people, when horrendously drunk, buy things that they don't remember buying. I pass on things I probably would've bought if I were sober. So, I didn't pick this one up. If you're the person who got it instead of me, you're welcome. :)Anyway, awesome mixtape. Still play it a lot. Worth tracking down.

Because you have a copy, you don't want others to? Decent.

Warp has the rights, and they might have enough influence to get the samples cleared. An official repress would be cool.

I'm trying to get a replacement cover for this LP. My copy arrived with the cover all beaten up and of course split seams, so if anyone out there has access to one of these and is willing to sell, please send me a message. Thanks!

I just noticed the LP is selling for fairly high amounts. Was it limited? Does anyone know how many were pressed?
Wohald

it wasn't very limited, people just really like money

i read on ebay that only 1000 were made. and they most definitely won't repress it since most of the tracks on it are unlicensed samples. cheapest one i found up until is 399 and thats the starting bid

SanspantsI just noticed the LP is selling for fairly high amounts. Was it limited? Does anyone know how many were pressed?.The album contains a lot of un-cleared samples (which we can only assume the band never intended to get permission for though, that's up for debate). Unless they bother going back through everything they sampled and pay everybody who'll want a cut it won't get re-pressed. So yes, it's Very limited.

I think it might've gotten a repress recently actually, they were selling them last night at a show in LA.

Thanks for all the replies. I never saw it was limited to 500 and purchased it when it was available on the Third Worlds website.
Onnell

I believe I read somewhere that it was only 500 or so, extremely hard to come by, and if you do come by it, the price is always jacked through the roof!

I was waiting for this to be slammed to vinyl. When it finally did I ordered it via my local record store in The Netherlands. Groundbreaking record.

I am also pretty sure the third worlds website said it was limited to 500 copies.

I also bought it directly from their site just as it came out, but I'm positive it said it was limited to 500 (1000, tops).

I just noticed that, I ordered mine from their site for like $20, if that. Didn't say it was limited or anything.

(for my full Exmilitary review.. see the original MP3 release submission) But I'll say this here: I see OFWGKTA mentioned alongside Death Grips way too often. Is it just because they're both "edgy" and current? Because that's about all they have in common. The better comparisons would be with Techno Animal, Ice, & Fever. They put down the foundation for this kind of weirdo, hard, experimental hiphop back in the 90's. Though they never get much credit for it nowadays because they pre-date popularity being based on things going viral on the internet. But if you'd like some great albums to accompany Exmilitary, get: FEVER "Too Bad But True", ICE "Bad Blood", & TECHNO ANIMAL "The Brotherhood Of The Bomb".True, there's not as much yelling on them, but the production style and experimentation is there.

Great comparisons and you are so right. People check those groups out, especially Techno Animal's "The Brotherhood Of The Bomb", that album makes any current popular "underground" hip-hop look like child's play.

Exmilitary merges the most ambitious traits of the year's best rap albums while avoiding the same pitfalls: it achieves the cogent political stance of "Watch the Throne" without the Luxury Rap paradox. It draws the same grotesque fascination with violence and sexuality paraded by Odd Future, but dodges immature over-the-top flourish by a humbling of disposition alone.Second track “Guillotine” sets the dark imagery of the album with deft minimalism and pure ire, a caustic synth exploding in arpeggio near the end. "Spread Eagle Cross the Block" signs the album’s opening struggle in blood. Over some bluesy bass and guitar riffs, Ride explodes: “What is it? Where is it? How will it affect me? [expletive] that [expletive], I need that [expletive]’s bound to be the death of me, [expletive] buying it I'm taking it, and sharing it with nobody.Sometimes, a musical act rises from the depths of obscurity and completely blows you away. Death Grips are an act like that. Intense and grungy, these Sacramento natives defy genre stereotypes and have completely set themselves outside the realm of categorization. Formed by drummer Zach Hill and two other unnamed participants, they blend a large variety of influences that include hip-hop, punk, and breakbeat into an intense musical concoction that's hard to swallow but even harder to forget. Unique sampling and vocal delivery help to further set Death Grips apart from the rest of the musical world, and their latest mixtape Exmilitary showcases this thoroughly.The opening track “Beware” begins with a vocal sample from none other than Charles Manson, who denounces the leadership of others with one of his famous tirades. It soon becomes apparent that the subject matter of the tracks sets Death Grips apart just as much as their instrumentation. Their use of apocalyptic imagery adds a dark layer of mystery to every line, compounded by the repetitive beats that back up the vocalist's hard delivery. “Lord of the Game” continues these themes with the odd addition of saxophone and vocal samples that form the basis of the whole track. The lyricism turns the music scene into a literal battlefield using stark visions of war and vehement proclamations of supremacy. While the vocabulary and rhyme structure are less than impressive, it's hard to get hung up on them when bombarded with such unique instrumentals.Exmilitary hits its stride with the introduction of “Takyon (Death Yon),” a heavily industrial track that features some of the best flow the mixtape has to offer. Dismal production matches with the vocalist's hardcore lyricism and vocal delivery almost perfectly, filling the contours of the music as it bangs through to the track's conclusion. The following instrumental “Cut Throat” offers a perfect segue to the the album's second half, but still highlights the same intense features as the rest of the tracks with a mix of record scratching and grating synthesizers.While much of the mixtape's subject matter is put forth in a very violent manner, it helps connect Death Grips' views of the world around them to the music in a very organic way. Images of police brutality (“Klink”) and crooked government (“Thru the Walls”) are hard to paint with a rosy glow, so the decision to present them in the harsh light of reality really helps get the message across. Comparisons to Odd Future are easy to make for the casual listener, but where the Wolf Gang use violent imagery in an attempt at humoring themselves, Death Grips' lyrics carry an impassioned weight that truly sets them apart from their peers.Exmilitary is the perfect example of an album everyone needs to experience for themselves. Any combination of adjectives and nouns would be an extreme disservice to the sonic trip Death Grips have crafted within the mixtape's confines, because every component will hit individuals in a completely different way. Exmilitary is an abrasive and traumatic ordeal, rife with production that's on-point but completely jarring at the same time. Death Grips are authoring an engrossing chapter in today's music scene, and I can't wait to hear what they come up with next.
