Favorite track: Holy Fucking Shit: 40,000. I think Deathconsciousness itself ended up being a stylistically mixed album, and we picked those pieces out of an even bigger mix of stylistic pieces. It was just a grand sum of a lot of ideas we tried to flush out and bring to fruition. In terms of contrast, there was certainly never conflict. I think a few songs on the album were, like Holy Fucking Shit 40,000 was based on an old acoustic song. John Hill is having a pretty nice life on Twitter - JohnxHill.

Willing to do a straight trade of the red variant I have for this one. Thanks
LadyShlak
Willing to do a straight trade for the Coke Bottle Clear variant if anyone is interested.
Yozshujinn
Would anyone like to sell me this? I’d go to AU$100
Tisicai
According to the Flenser, there were 100 copies of this colour pressed for sale at Roadburn
Zaryagan
love this pressing. the booklet is high quality, with an actual bound spine, the gatefold jacket is sturdy, the records are flat and have nice rounded edges, and look really cool. A bit noisy but nothing a quick clean can't fix. A++++
Ynonno
Has anyone got any feedback on the pressing quality on this coke-bot-clear issue? thanks!
Vozilkree
You can find it on death wish european store https://deathwishinc.eu/products/have-a-nice-life-deathconsciousness
Stylish Monkey
Appreciate this bruh. =)Still annoyin cuz of shipping, it's pretty expensive, so I hope this will hit EU distribution b4 selling out...
Molace
sounds great bro At least 10 words must be entered. Please enter at least 7 more.
Samardenob
I've decided to check out which version i have since i got it such a long time ago and... bingo! It's the 1st press.Despite the poor original recordings, it doesn't sound that bad to my hears. A few pops here and there.Side notes :- My copy arrived with an extremely damaged corner. I wasn't the only one. People at Enemies List (like a lot of indie 'shops') don't know how to send records.- I never liked the reworked cover. The original CD version is way better in my opinion.- LOL at the flyer saying "...includes the final printing of the accompanying booklet".Great stuff though.
Kabandis
Record came in today, don't know why record labels insist on mailing the records on the outside of the sleeves, any reason for this? Always terrifies me and makes me immediately check for damages
Chankane
I actually request my sellers to do this with every order I place. Its the safest way to ship a record...
Qane
They do this to protect the jacket from getting seam splits. This is actually the preferred way to ship to minimize damaging via shipment. The mailer generally has a piece of cardboard protecting the LP itself as well.
Lilegha
Is the "new layout" of the jacket also present on this version? https://www.discogs.com/Have-A-Nice-Life-Deathconsciousness/release/8972371
Risteacor
Very good album full of emotions sad and uplifting.I want to buy a vinyl, which one can I chose as long as I see here there is lot of poor sound quality pressing?
Duktilar
This release seems to be a remaster, along with all subsequent vinyl presses from Flenser? The store page says "The engineer that cut the first Flenser edition of Deathconsciousness felt that he could improve the quality of the pressing. The result is a louder and clearer edition of the most important record we have ever been a part of."
Kirimath
Is this the release with the orange pressing (GAT, with book)?
Yanki
This release contains a book, but discs are regular black.
porosh
Ever dubious about the quality of this thing. What could be considered the highest quality source for this record to make a new master from? Thought all the original recordings were lost.
Ichalote
All of the newest editions put out by The Flenser, according to them, are "remastered". according to their store page:"The engineer that cut the first Flenser edition of Deathconsciousness felt that he could improve the quality of the pressing. The result is a louder and clearer edition of the most important record we have ever been a part of. Pressed at RTI. All print work is identical to the previous edition."I also have heard the original recordings were lost. I assume the newest pressings are the best quality you can get but i don't have two different pressings to compare.
luisRED
This thing sounds like SHIT! Love the album, but this seems like an especially poor representation of an album that already sounds like shit. I will have to get the Flenser ed, and maybe it's mixed a bit better.
The Sinners from Mitar
Back cover has ELHR logo in the top left corner. The first press does not. Only way to tell the difference as far as I'm aware.
Adrietius
Back cover if this does not have ELHR logo in the top left like the 2nd 2012 pressing.
Varshav
Yeah ok... I have two copies like this with the logo in the top left corner, one of which was sold to me as a first press. Guess I was sold a ‘dud’. Will request photos from sellers in advance when I decide to go for a first press again.Thanks!
Malien
I don't have a 1st press but my second press looks like this with the logo in the top left: http://assets.rootsvinylguide.com/pictures/have-a-nice-life-deathconsciousness-w-book-original-lp-2008_24432383I've seen copies of the 1st that do not have that logo on the back sleeve.
Mikale
Could you send me a photo of the back cover?
Gavinranara
My copy has the label slightly off center on both discs. Asides that, sounds magnificent. Came with B and C side labels on their own which I found odd.
Zugar
My copy had slight wear on the top left of the cover, and I got the same inserts
Shem
DecayToDeath Please don't call them "vinyls"; "discs" or "records" are acceptable alternatives. OK
Gamba
Weird, considering that the A side label doesn't have art. Just the name of the disc.
Danrad
So did mine. I found it odd that one was an A side label
Goktilar
I bought one of the last copies of this pressing in early 2010 with a small crease in the corner. Unfortunately I left it at a friend's place in 2011, I never thought I'd see it selling for over $100.
Felolak
What happened ? This is out of stock everywhere for no apparent reason. I remember this edition being supposedly unlimited.
Shaktiktilar
Didn't the warehouse with the last remaining copies of this pressing burn down? I seem to remember Flenser announcing that.
Shaktit
The Flenser added 3 copies to their store on April 28 and on the store page it said in bold letters a new pressing was in the works. Since the remaining copies sold out, the store page for it has been taken down. They should've kept that page up to let people know they're repressing it, but there's a link to I Don't Love posted on April 22 talking about this on their Facebook.
Kamuro
The Flenser said that they're working on another pressing of it, but I have no idea when it's going to be done.
Reemiel
I've been searching around everywhere and I can't find a single store online that sells this version. Would gladly love to hear about where I can get a copy, because this is ridiculous.
Original
Mine only has the work 'Lucky' inscribed on the second LP, everybody has the etching on both LP's?
Ynap
I have it in both, it's not the 180g version though.
Gogul
anyone else missing bloodhail from their copy of this
Iphonedivorced
Why are some of these translucent green and others are marbled mint green?
Skilkancar
This isn't exclusive to preorders anymore, Flenser had copies up for sale recently.
Winotterin
How thick would you say this pressing is compared to the 180g version? Is it like the Unnatural World's pressing?
Togar
it seems slightly smaller than the unnatural world pressing, but i doubt it makes a huge difference considering the way the album was produced.
Dusar
how come it says this is the second pressing but there's no first pressing entry on discogs?
Yellow Judge
No idea.
Tehn
Interesting that Flenser (and possibly Dan) chose to go with the incorrect tracklisting for this release (Bloodhail before The Big Gloom on Side A. Most people who had a digital copy of this before the reissue had a track order that was ultimately incorrect according to Dan and his own mistake when printing materials for the release. Now it seems they are making it the official listing.
Impala Frozen
Anyone noticed that the jacket gets horribly smudged when you lay a single finger on it?Is there any way to remove these smudges?
Wyameluna
I haved buy the fantastic album, in 2LP 180g, but the sound is crappy, lot of noise and saturation (not from the music)....the B face of the first LP is the worst....did someone had the same experience or it's just me ?
Shadowbourne
Mine sounds flawless. Bought all the variants and they all sound fantastic, only the green copy does inhabit some surface noise here and there.
Dugor
I only got 1 LP ;_;
Dakora
Contact the label directly (Facebook or email) and they would probably be accommodating if there are extra or duplicate copies.
Zyangup
how does that even happen
Zepavitta
The pre-order for the new repress has started...http://theflenser.com/have-a-nice-life-deathconsciousness-dlp-reissue-pre-sale-info/
Xaluenk
Hi for the people out there who have received this when did it arrive? Mine still hasn't come and enemies list always takes forever to ship things out.

Mine arrived today. Was shipped to the west coast of Canada. Hopefully yours will arrive soon! It's worth the wait.

nevermind got it!
Nagor
I’ve wanted to write about this band and their music for quite some time now but never could discover the words that I wanted to use to describe them. I think that one of the main reasons why I’ve become so attracted to this record is that I hadn’t quite heard something played in this fashion and in such continuity before and done to a degree that I’ve come to appreciate over the course of a few years. Having been released in early ’08, the record itself has had time to settle throughout its respective musical circles and suffice it to say, it has managed to hold its own particularly well despite similar releases of comparable sounds.This double album is not so much about any one genre; indeed, many musical elements are showcased here. A lot of shoegaze is present as is a bit of post-rock and even drone at points. The shoegaze elements work particularly well – I don’t find too many albums these days who have been able to replicate the effect that is played throughout Half a Nice Life’s music. The third track perhaps most heavily hints at this with vocals sounding like they’ve been partially submerged as well as liberal use of effect pedals and other equipment that produce a certain dreamlike quality to it reminiscent of 80s and early very early 90s shoegaze groups (think The Jesus and the Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine).However, I don’t think that these reasons alone account for the band’s consistent appeal since I’ve known about them. The fact that they do so many things in the album and do it well should indeed speak for itself. It flows very well from the very first track. Texturally rough, but beautiful and seductive. It took me a fairly lengthy amount of time to fully appreciate the record for what it is and I’m still finding small details about it that make that even more pronounced.What’s interesting is that the people behind the Connecticut, US-based band took almost eight years to put out their very first full length album when it was formed in 2000, perhaps more involved in other projects at the time including bands like The Danger Strangers and then-active In Pieces. Their second release entitled Time of Land was released two years later comprising of just four tracks and although of equal caliber to Deathconciousness, not much else has been heard from this group that we know of, at least not in any official capacity.“Bloodhail” and “The Big Gloom” proved to be surefire hits, however there is a lot more to be discovered as you listen throughout the album including “Holy Fucking Shit, 40,000″ as well as “I Don’t Love” found within the second half of the album: an incredible washed out wall of sound that really satisfies and compliments the entire album very, very elegantly.Double albums are usually very ambitious and prove themselves out with their reception. And despite the hype that this band got when Deathconciousness was released, Half a Nice Life has honestly out done themselves with such a fine quality release and I have no doubt that the record will continue to be a staple of the genres that it represents.
Funny duck
I have heard Have A Nice Life's "Deathconsciousness" compared to more different genres and artists than anything before it. It is also heaped so much praise, it is somewhat challenging to listen to it without bias. I was immediately inclined to judge it as over-hyped. However, once I got past the hype and really got into the heart of the album, I found a very enjoyable piece of work. Let's start with the comparisons. The name drops I've heard when people are sizing up this album have honestly been a pretty wide variety of bands which includes Joy Division, Sunn O))), Skinny Puppy, My Bloody Valentine, and many others. Ignore the comparisons. Elements from these various bands are indeed present, but this album really does stand out as a rather unique recording. A number of the tracks are catchy and memorable. A few of the songs really stick with you, but not so much because of clever pop hooks. If you're a fan of ambient / noise / industrial work, these elements are present throughout the whole album, but are more ornamentation to the song writing. They are present in a very tasteful, unobtrusive way that makes the whole album very rich. The guitar work has strong shoegazer and drone elements. The song writing could appeal to fans of older bands like Joy Division or even The Cure. It is really a superb collection of styles that work in a very unique way. The album certainly suffers from way too much hype, and is a bit inconsistent at times. Some of the production is dubious, and would be marked against it if this somewhat flawed production style didn't accentuate the diy feel of the album, which really is part of its charm. After I got past the albums minor faults, I found an album that I feel should be heard by any fan of interesting and usual music.
