Violence's packaging is nominal at best (but made well) and looks a bit like a DIY job, which scores points in my book. Examining the jacket closely, you'll notice the cover art is a simple print job atop bare cardboard that, when placed firmly between the fingers, has a grainy texture and lacks the smooth, glossy coating of a sleeve double or even triple the price. But don't let that deter you: regardless of release, Gogmagogical Record's goal to deliver a quality product in any format still stands here. Really, there's no reason to complain when you have a new album sitting on the turntable.

Aside from tiny imperfections, I must admit I'm thoroughly impressed with Fister's latest vinyl and hope to see them work with Gogmagogical Records in the future. A quality product at a budget price indicates a focus on the fans and the music itself--something I completely respect when running a label is extremely tough in this day and age. Up next on Gogmagogical's roster is Cold Blue Mountain's self-titled debut, so expect to see that featured in all its sludgey glory in a few short months.
