Testpresses for the Anatomi-71/Radioskugga - Split 7" EP has arrived today and it sounds great! No news for the Human Waste/Personkrets 3:1 - Split 7", there are still some technical difficulties with this release that probably originate from the recording itself. This could explain why the testpresses that has been made has failed. We have changed to a swedish pressingplant for them to solve this and hopefully they will soon.
