Re: Insane Ebay Auctions - Vinyl, Tapes & Merch

Condition description seems very accurate and forthcoming for this. :D https://www.ebay.com/itm/DO-NOT-BUY-Metallica-Kill-em-All-1983-Original-Megaforce-Silver-label-Vinyl-LP/174660098964?_trkparms=aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20180213162448%26meid%3D084664d31eae42bdb5cf9a3...

WANTED: Chroming Rose “Pressure” LP (1992)

Seems a complete bitch to find, and probably sold in the neighborhood of one copy or less in Sweden. But I figure there most be copies people just don’t know what to do with scattered across Deutschland. Can anyone help?

The 7'' single, however, is a different story. Bad production and very poor vocals. The sums it fetches is beyond my belief.
Oh, come one. Their theme song is a perfect song and recording quality etc is exactly the DIY quality you could expect from a DIY release, no more or less.

Re: Insane Ebay Auctions - Vinyl, Tapes & Merch

You need to let go of the notion that quality of music is supposed to justify a price tag. It doesn’t. Supply and demand justifies a price tag. Question number 1 is do you want a record at all, and if yes are you prepared to pay what it costs. My favorite record of all time is Painkiller, but if I l...

Re: Insane Ebay Auctions - Vinyl, Tapes & Merch

I’m glad I bought it when it actually was 20 to 25 euros, because The Unknown is the best traditional heavy metal album ever released by a Swedish band.

Re: Records mixed from different pressings..

Not so outrageous, but I did have a badly scratched Saxon "Rock the Nations" LP, French pressing. At one point I found a mint copy, US pressing, while crate digging and bought it. I threw away my old copy, but kept the inner sleeve as the US edition doesn't have one.

Re: Kreator - Renewal LP Noise 1992 with insert?

Looks like the lyric sheet that came with the Brazilian pressing (although on offer is clearly the German Noise pressing). Check the fifth picture of this entry here: https://www.discogs.com/de/Kreator-Renewal/release/1848724 Most likely a former owner thought it nice to have a lyric sheet with the...

Records mixed from different pressings..

Since the original mystery is solved, let's rename the whole thread../aDmiN Anyone has, or has seen an original Noise 1992 Kreator "Renewal" LP with an insert that looks like the one in the photo of this auction? I always thought it came with a plain white inner and nothing else. https://www.ebay.c...

Re: Metal Collecting ..only for the rich & elderly?

On the evolution of record prices: I am not an expert on heavy metal and my first and true love is black metal. When I compare prices with 20 years ago there are few records that remained on the same price level, only a handful decreased in value, and most went up quite a bit. And then there's the ...

Re: Metal Collecting ..only for the rich & elderly?

Interesting... Are all good 80's HM vinyl getting more expensive though? Originals of all the classic bands - Yes Kült-rarities (Militia, Wyzard, various nwobhm 7" etc) - Yes ...but inbetween is where we find the majority of vinyl Steel and not all of it is mediocre. If you don't have a problem wit...

Re: Insane Ebay Auctions - Vinyl, Tapes & Merch

Wow, you must have browsed through a lot of threads on this forum just to find that message. ;-) Yeah, buying a record for 30 SEK (about €3) and selling it for 200 (about €20) is surely killing the collecting scene. Especially since the average Discogs price for this item was 220 SEK (€22) to begin...

Re: Insane Ebay Auctions - Vinyl, Tapes & Merch

Do you see any relation between these two? Why are there no cheap records? There are, but all are sucked up by dealers and collectors who intend to make money on them. Only way to lower prices and more reasonably priced records to more people is if less people seek to benefit. I’m probably fighting ...

Bigfoot.
You called me?
I’m not sure wether that phrase is something one really wants to hear or something one really doesn’t want to hear after calling out for Bigfoot.

Is the sound on the CD release noticeably better? If so, I will have to buy it
It is. :(
