Romanus Records has taken the cake for strangest objects pressed into vinyl. The Indianapolis based company describes its products as “dangerous vinyl”, with razor blades and “free floating” gun powder pressed into the wax for Texas rock duo Ghost Wolves’ latest release.
According to The Vinyl Factory, dinosaur bones and brewery grains are also being filled into Ghost Wolves’ records. In an interview, Chris Banta, the CEO of Romanus Records, revealed, “We are always trying to push the bounds of creativity of what can be put in a record. It’s such an open-ended artistic format, with endless possibilities.”
“The process of making these is a mastery of the dark arts,” Banta said. “They are constantly evolving… It’s been a giant messy success so far.”
With these pressings, Romanus Records has shown blatant creativity in a surprising medium. They’re visually intriguing and one should never miss an opportunity to say “my vinyl is part dinosaur.”
