That's strange...

My copy has just a regular booklet.. So do all my other Roadrunner discs.
Then I guess someone just cut those corners... Thanks.

Does anybody know if the 1993 release of Onslaught's "Power from Hell" on Pony Canyon have the same problem as later re-releases - that is the track "Devil's Legion" is split into two tracks on the CD itself? Or does it have that song as a single track as it should be?

I can check with my copy later today.

That would be great! Thank you for your consideration. I ask about this because I would rather know before hunting down my own copy. I already have a Under One Flag copy of The Force.

I'll let you know. If not, remind me.

A quick question:

Does anybody know how to tell an original Fringe Sacrifice "Torment in Fire" CD from the recent Russian bootleg? The matrix seems to be the same.

I haven't seen the bootleg, but it seems to me a Disc Amerique matrix from that era would be VERY hard to fake accurately. Unless these bootleggers seriously upped their game while I wasn't paying attention.

As far as I know the Disc Amerique symbol can't be replicated in the matrix. That alone will be one of many destinguishing factors.

Thanks for the info. I will look for the Disc Amerique symbol. Any other things to look out for?

Incidentally I heard that the first Sacrifice album has terrible production on the original CD release (the re-release is remastered). Is that true?

Also - one more question. I just looked at my copy of Powermad "Absolute Power" and it has this matrix code:

1 25937-2 SRC-05 M1S1

I noticed that many copies of this album do not have the last "M1S1" part. Is this a normal proper non-bootleg matrix?

1st album cd release is with pre-emphasis. You need de-emphasis filter to listen to. Marquee Rec. remasters are horrible, compressed crap

My copy has "1 25937-2 SRC-03". I don't know if it helps you but I'm sure it's an original.

Thanks for the reply Shimrod. I saw copies with that matrix too. I have seen the "M1S1" part on many matrices on US pressed discs and I hope mine is not a bootleg.

Mine is "... SRC-05 M1S4"

The ones with Mother/Stamper M#S# are most likely pressed a bit later.

I figured as much. So it is original just a later US pressing. Looks like an original to me at least.
