how did you get this????

For me 4 days ago: Tales Of Medusa - Beyond Charonium
A guy over at Miskatonic forum sold his copy. It cost me 100 euros but I feel it's worth it since it might literally never pop up for sale again. Superb album in my opinion, my copy is #96/100.
100 Euros for something released less the 3 years ago?

And everyone wonders why the hype around this atrociously average band is so huge...

Year of release is completely irrelevant. The only thing that matters is supply versus demand. The supply of 100 copies in existance is lower than for most famous North American private releases which makes it one of the rarest gems, and it's also one of the best.

Here's a piece of truth... If Triumphant Serenade had been released in 100 copies in 1987 and not 2007, EVERYBODY here would want it. Had it been a private 1990 cd release you would want it too. Lucky for me none of the above is the case. :)

"Triumphant Serenade" is actually one of my favorite albums of the last five years or so. Pretty excellent suff. You can argue about the vocal style, but that is just a matter of taste, i think it fits the music pretty well. For 100€ i would have also not hesitated one second really. And if you don't like it anymore, you can sell it for twice that amount.

This band is so over-hyped that it's ridiculous.

You are right about the year of release, that was kind of irrelevant, but that aside, I personally only fork out money for stuff that I actually enjoy listening to and Tales Of Medusa is so average and bland that I can never justify the stupid prices any of they're purposely-released-in-micro-quantities-in-attempt-to-gain-cult-recignition albums are sold for.

I don't know about everybody else here, personally I am not after rare records anymore no matter how great they are. ToM album is not great by any means to these ears, I wouldn't spend more than 10 euros to obtain it if it was released in '87. It's OK that many people seem to be enjoying them, their attitude is so repellent to me that I cannot support them in no case. The second biggest problem is that their music is really nothing special.
I don't know if people have realised this, but we are keep discussing the same issues regarding this band for almost 3 years now, everything has been discussed to death and both sides (fans/friends - no fans/no firends) have had their say. There is really no point to keep commenting their distribution practices anymore, I doubt people will change their opinion about them.

I agree.

I think that Tales Of Medusa has more to do with rarity then quality.

Either way, I think I'll just "booo" anyone that praises them for now on. :lol:

Mordred saying ToM is one of the best...well, thinking of some of the cool stuff he's put down I'm just going to have to completely ignore his opinion on anything from now on.
