    Has vinyl become mainstream?

    Retro marketing I guess? It's even more limited than a specific variant colour vinyl press which seems to be something labels often produce in very small runs and then charge extra for.

    I've seen a 2018 release on Minidisc!

    Has vinyl become mainstream?

    Cassettes started making a reappearance a few years ago largely around the 80s revival bands (synthwave or c86 throwback). It won't amount to much but vinyl will always have a market, although as you say it'll ebb and flow.

    Searching for a rich vinyl like sound in digital music

    It might have been a joke

    Sure there is - pops, clicks, crackles and some nice rumble thrown in for good measure!

    I'll have a listen those this evening, only heard Opeth and Electric Wizard before, thanks. So most of the music I listen to that falls into this sort of description is either instrumental or fairly sparse vocals. Not a huge fan of death growl vocals myself, I quite like a bit but not an entire album of them.

    Funnily enough the former rhythm guitarist from Vallenfyre now makes darksynth under the moniker Electric Dragon, been listening to quite a bit of it lately.
