they are both no the same level. Drgoon_jpn usually brings in stuff I've been looking for for a few years ... it happens every time ...

it is because you may be NWOBHM or hard rock collector. drgoon_jpn is one of good hard rock sellers. so most of his buyers is also hard rock collectors than thrash / death collectors. so his Morbid Saint CD was sold for low price :

the price is lower than the cheap reissue version the seller kreator72 sold. :D

one of good thrash / death sellers, thallos81, also could not sell the CD even for $49.99 :

it seems WITCHFYNDE CD is not wanted highly any more for thrash / death collectors. :shock:

The last pricekillers Morbid Saint CD went for cca $130 (I was the 2nd highest bidder for the 50th time I suppose), but the one before that went for something less than $100 - it was bought by randomcoils / thallos, who later sold it for around $130. Unfortunately I didn't have any money this time (dragon) ... or I might have gotten it at last ;)

And that Chastain went for only cca $115, while the only other copy I ever saw (on yahoo Japan, also without OBI) had a starting price tag at cca 20.000 Yen (which was about $200 then if I'm not mistaken) ...

Original Angel Dust - To Dust You Will Decay was sold for 60 EUR on German ebay few days ago - the last few from ebay.com all went in the $180 - $250 ...

If I liked that band I could have had the CD for $45.00 US.

It originally had that as a "Buy It Now" but some idiot decided to bid instead and the price ended at $115.00 US.

I knew that would happen...

I always get confused as to which of the Chastain CD's you are looking for as I could have bought the damn thing for you.

About the $45 buy it now price: It's the first bidder's fault that he put a bid instead buying it - he probably didn't know how insanely rare this CD is, or didn't want to spend $45 on any CD or perhaps he just wasn't into Chastain. I wouldn't have even seen this auction if it wasn't for this thread - but you can bet that I'd buy it the first second I'd saw it for $45 ... if I had the money of course on my credit card :)

I'm aware...

Either way, the first bidder is a dumbass, haha...

All this craziness over some crappy death metal album... Never been impressed by Sororicide, and it's beyond me how anyone would want it badly enough to drop that kind of coin. Rarity should not be that important over quality, I wouldn't pay $3500 for Slayer's Show No Mercy if only 10 copies existed!
