how many grown men does it take to open a parcel?

The very next day after our previous post, a bizarre photo appeared on the Lord Vicar facebook page, featuring sealed parcels in some kind of wheelbarrow:

 

Surely, if these parcels include the vinyl pressings of Lord Vicar’s “Gates of Flesh”, whoever received them could take the extra 2 minutes to open the parcels, right? Or at least one of them, and take a photo of the contents instead? Seeing as we’re talking about “something special” and “never seen before in the Doom Metal history”? Right?

Well, four days later, still no photo of the contents, no records received by anyone anywhere, no emails to enquiring pre-buyers…

Meanwhile, the man who does not need a mask anymore, our beloved cultural historian Kimi Kärki has left to go on holiday, while those parcels sort themselves out…

You couldn’t make this stuff up! You honestly couldn’t.

Three months on from this post, more than a month on from the date given therein:

 

…and no one has seen a copy of the vinyl version of Lord Vicar’s “Gates of Flesh”.

There are no official announcements or outgoing emails from either the band or The Church Within / Doom Dealer. No explanations, no apologies.

And yet Kimi Kärki remains a prolific poster of junk on facebook, Lord Vicar post links to gig reviews where they’re proclaimed “masters”, but no one sees the need to keep pre-order buyers informed.

Lord Vicar, and The Church Within: Stalwarts of true professionalism!
