Before West Brabazon There Was ... The Very Best Of Operation Egodeath
How to use the reserve function
If you'd like to purchase items from our site but want to save money on shipping costs, you can use our reserve function to combine your orders over an unlimited period of time, and ship them together for one combined shipping price when you are ready.Just hit the 'reserve' button at the checkout page as your shipping option when you've finished making your order, and your order will automatically be held in reserve here until you are ready for us to ship everything to you.
You can keep as many orders in reserve with us via our site as you like, until you are ready to ship. Just send us an email when you are ready to ship your reserve orders, and we will get in touch with the combined shipping price, or ship for free if you have exceeded the minimum order amount for free shipping to your address.
Can the reserve function be used to get free shipping? Yes - If your combined order total is more than £50 within the UK, over £150 within the EU, or over £225 worldwide, we'll ship your order to you via courier service, for free.
Here's a step by step guide to using it:
1. Click on the account icon to log into your account.
If you don't have an account, please click 'create account' to make one. If you had an account on the old RWDFWD site, please create a new one with the same email address used on the old site - this will ensure your previous orders are brought through to your new account.
2. Add records to your cart as normal.
3. When you're ready to check out, select 'ship'.
4. Then select 'Reserve items' on the shipping method list, then continue to payment.
5. Once payment is complete, your order will show in your account as 'unfulfilled'. We will have put all the products aside in reserve for you to combine with other orders and ship later in bulk.
6. When you're ready to ship all the items you have in reserve, email us on email@example.com and we will calculate the shipping due and arrange for payment to be taken.
7. Sit tight and wait for your records to arrive in the post!

This is automatically applied at checkout and reserve orders also count towards it.
EU Order info
Unfortunately, the UK is no longer part of the EU - This means that certain shipments sent to addresses there from us may be subject to tax and / or import duty - All orders sent from RWDWD are sent ‘DDU’ - That is, duty unpaid - any import tax and/or duty is the sole responsibility of the buyer.
If you would like to use our reserve function to group several orders into one large shipment, we can arrange for it to be sent tax and duty pre-paid so you don’t have to worry about it at a later date - Contact us for more information.
If this is what Best Of's sound like on Ceramics, then NOW! that's what I call a best of.
Indeed, it's the truth, as told by recent Avon Terror Corps implosion frequently known as Narcissist Holocaust, and now known as Operation Egodeath.
An informed ear might give you clues to the hands and ears that navigate this brilliant cacophony, if you listen to the splurges of drums and the emergency of vocals from 6 feet below and three foot to the side, in each earhole, re-telling legends and finding truth in the twist.
The music of Operation Egodeath moves like a thick cloud of rainbow coloured smog filling a room in a building you can't even remember being in, but now you're there.
Voices creep in from the gutter and out of megaphones, and bounce through the walls and hallways of crushed rhythm, dizzying reverberations through inverted echo chambers, the reflections only interrupted once those trashcan snares rattle above like cyborgs in the medieval sky.
As the good people at Ceramics say:
"A time when the streets are being pumped full of electric scooters, West Brabazon is under construction, Castlemead no longer sits alone in the city centre skyline, the scriptures are being broadcast in Latin for the first time since 1648 and the Celtic gold that belongs to the city still has not been returned...
This is the world Operation Egodeath inhabits. Here collected for the very first time, are their greatest hymns, bastard church industrial for pantheist times, scraps of Northern Earth read into kaoss pads off Cabot Circus napkins. Cabot Circus 'Where More Happens' - you really believe that shit? Press play, drop out, lute up. End yerself."
A real f* u to convention and a yes please to DIY, 'The Very Best Of...' by Operation Egodeath deals direct and comes correct.
There's the warning signals of the opener with Dali De Saint Paul on vocals, reminding of that truly convincing type of menace she whips up with Harrga, before melting it slowly in a hot pot of plucked song and skewed melody in a hushed duet with one of the voices of the Operation. Then there's the timewarping, woozy crush of 'Eternal' and the aptly titled, goth-steppin' I Luv U But I Choose Dankness, which leads us into some of the best shit we've heard in f*cking ages (and that's not to say the first few tracks weren't already some of the best) with 'Flesh Doubts, Wood Knows'...
That track gives us strong TG vibes, spewing out the kind of restless energy of one of the live performances of Discipline, but coming with a gnarly home recorded hardcore EBM punk sound a la British Murder Boys, no fucks given.
The embers continue to light up with EndYerself, the timestrech ballad to end all time, kicking up a slow storm of equal measures slomotion insanity, disharmonic beauty and utter destruction, all laced with some of the most deadly amounts of space in between each motion of vocals, f*ckd flanger fx and bass foghorn.
Later on, we're taken into all kinds of extra worlds and as we ruminate sonically from under Avon, but right now - if you're reading & listening in sync with these words, which you're probably not, but what can we do?! - you are half way through the album and your head will have already melted, maybe even mutated.
When you say 'mindblowing' we say this.
We'll leave it here.
Operation Egodeath meant business when they say they only give you the best.
