Metal LP/CD/Tapes/Shirts for sale/trade

For sale or trade against Greek metal items of roughly similar value (I'm not THAT strict in that department, but don't want to give stuff away either). Feel free to ask questions, request photos, etc. I have some other items as well (CDs, tapes, vinyl, etc.) that will be added sooner or later. Exam...

Re: WANTED: Greek metal (80s/90s) of all varieties

Get all the copies of Power Metal fanzine (in circulation since 1990) and you'll get the who's who of Greek metal (minus the extreme metal bands). Indeed, I am searching land and country for fanzines and this is one of the most important ones. So, if anyone either wants to sell their old copies or ...

Re: WANTED: Greek metal (80s/90s) of all varieties

I have considered the idea of doing a website earlier on and have not ruled it out. One idea would be start building a combined database/website, which can (maybe, only maybe) be converted into book-form later on. Would you be the least bit interrested in free webhosting, free designing/development...

Re: WANTED: Greek metal (80s/90s) of all varieties

If you accept a good advice, drop the idea with the book and turn it into a website or something. Something that you could update anytime you want. Once a book is printed you can bet your ass you'll come across "some great unknown band" that you you'll bit your ass for you couldn't include in the b...

Re: WANTED: Greek metal (80s/90s) of all varieties

This is a great idea, there is a lot to write about. Have you taken a first stab at a discography? When it comes to demo tapes I think this is where there will be the deepest delving. Looking forward to hearing more as it unfolds. I'm currently in the process of building a "complete" discography of...

Re: WANTED: Greek metal (80s/90s) of all varieties

The guy from Hierophant's descent is also cooking one about the Greek extreme Metal scene, he can probably hints you toward good sources :) Yes! Very much looking forward to reading that one. In order to not come off as a copy-cat, I am trying to approach the subject from a different and more wide ...

Short phone comment: Country-specific books/encyclopedias reign. Awesome to hear a new one is in the making! Looking forward to follow this... (Eru f ö möjligen 08:a?)

WANTED: Greek metal (80s/90s) of all varieties

Greetings, I collect Greek metal of all styles and formats. vinyl, tapes, cds, shirts, zines, etc. (black, death, heavy, power, doom, etc.) from the 1980s and 1990s. First and foremost out of passion, but also for the sake of writing a book covering the old Hellenic scene. So, if you have anything y...

Re: DER KAISER - Cannonballs (2018)

Yes, I like it as well - not bad for a bad that hasn't released anything in like... 30 years? The Queen-choirs took a couple of listens to get used to, but they definitely make the band stick out in the crowd. Also, I like how the songs doesn't always follow the usual template with verse/chorus, etc.

... on another board I created a thread entitled the Gentlemen's Corner. Which was a place to swap or even pay forward some gem you found to another collector that would covet it as much as you. It was a lot of fun and I miss that comradery as well.
Now that's a good idea.

Re: Insane Ebay Auctions - Vinyl, Tapes & Merch

If that's the case, that's a really insipid thing to do. Anyone could list an item on Discogs as far as I know. Typical human behaviour, though.

"Back of plain cover has a small yellow stain."

I wonder what the price would have been without the stain?

I don't know precisely how credible the info is, but the great metal blog Ride Into Glory recently made a guide to Spanish 80's heavy metal [...] This article was an interesting read as well as a good point of entry to the old Spanish scene in general. Thanks mordred! And the passage on CROM (sort ...

A little far-fetched but the cover for "Wasteland" always makes me think of this:
