Sorry about that. Was that shipped internationally or within the US?

I'm having trouble finding any of that stuff over here.
Browse my catalog, I have some of those labels.

It's no biggie, dude. I know you don't fuck people over and take your business very seriously.
And yeah, it was shipped internationally.

Has anyone been having any trouble with Unique Leader orders? I've read nothing but good things for them from this list, but I now have my doubts. I ordered 4 shirts and 4 cds a while back, and it was over two weeks before i ever got a confirmation email. I know the website says shirt orders may take up to two weeks, but damn. The payment went in the 4th of november, and i got my email the 22nd of november. Haven't heard a damn thing since.

EDIT:
I just looked at this thread a bit HARDER, and realized unique leader seems to fuck up a LOT. damnit. It's getting cold, i want my fucking long sleeves!!

Nice! I know the guy who was running it before basically flaked out and disappeared with a bunch of peoples' money.

The problem with some of these labels is that they only press like 1000 of each release (so when they are gone, they are impossible to restock - which is not ideal when running a store), and they also don't seem to want to distribute out too many at a time either. Not to mention for us, the stuff just doesn't sell. We can get like 3 copies of something and have it take a couple of years to sell those 3 CDs. Whereas a quality death metal release from say Spawn Of Possession, we can sell over 100 copies in that same length of time.

So yeah, it's just not an ideal situation all around, but we'll try to get some of this stuff in stock.
There isn't a huge market for it in North America, or anywhere else, it's a pretty niche-specific market. Given more of a push I think it could be bigger, especially since there's a pretty big grindcore fanbase in North America right now, just most people stick to Relapse or emo-core stuff and don't bother looking very hard for anything new or interesting. I'd order direct from labels overseas, but I'm wary of it, would rather just get the stuff I want from people I know for sure won't rip me off.

How's Grotesque Music? They have some stuff I like (namely a Disgorge logo shirt), but I'm not really sold on them. I e-mailed them way back when they had POIT shirts, never got a response.

Hi, I'm new here...

I've decided to treat myself too some new cd's and some shirts, but am having a problem finding an afordable place that has what I want in stock. After reading through this thread I've narrowed it down to two places to order the cd's from.....Unique Leader, and Brutal Bands.

Now from what i've read UL takes forever, and everyone seems to praise Brutal Bands, but they don't have all the albums I want in stock.

Am I better off to order with UL and wait, or wait for BB to restock then order from them??? And yes, I have e-mailed BB....still awaiting a response.

Thanks...

Try Willowtip. Or Relapse. Or Comatose Music. Or just wait for BB to restock them.

Yeah, I checked the other options out there. They're all a no go though, due to either availability or cost.

I guess I just wait then....boo-urns.

Just noticed your message here. I don't recall seeing your email. Send me a PM here and I'll get back to you. If you're looking for UL releases, I can tell you that many are out of stock because we are either still waiting for UL to ship them to us, or they are currently out of print.

So I FINALLY got my Grindhead order! My Defeated Sanity CD, plus they threw in two free compilations, one a death metal comp and one a hardcore/crust punk comp (both had some pretty alright shit! and some that were just... shit). On top of that, it included an original DEFEATED SANITY '05 PROMO, SON.

I bought a pre-order package of a split from them a few years ago and it took a little while longer to get it than normal but only by say a week.

you're an XXXL?

anyhoo, on-topic, got my order through from Shirt Killer today and I give them a glowing thumbs up. Relatively swift despatch, communicative people - ie they actually reply to their emails unlike some distros -, and the designs look as good on fabric as they do online due to the good print quality, particularly the Trap Them shirt.

They are but the hoodie I got from them is shitty, I mean the print is OK but the hoodie itself is thin and has a one-ply hood.
