Only 50 copies each? thats pushing it a bit... probably several hundred copies were pressed, 200 or 300, maybe a bit more. hard rock was a very big thing in malaysia during the 80s and early 90s so a fair amount of these promotional vinyls had to be given all around the country.DaN wrote:All ROCKERS (Singapore) LPs and many other late 80's/early 90's Singapore/Malaysia hard rock & Heavy Metal albums I've been told.
Commercially they were only available on tape (and some later on CD) but the apparently made a run of about 50 vinyls each for radio stations, music biz people etc. Do we still have any Sin/Mal members here who could shed some light on this matter?
Axe Crazy just sold a copy of the Crowhaven on ebay; I think his item description mentioned that some copies have been showing up lately.glockose wrote:There has always been a differance between

Cool topic, I wonder if anyone has updated info on some of these??Glockose wrote:Wyzard "Future Knights"? 500 "Knights of Metal" 2000
Amethyst 12" - 500 as well
Iron cross - 100johnnysteel wrote:Cool topic, I wonder if anyone has updated info on some of these??Glockose wrote:Wyzard "Future Knights"? 500 "Knights of Metal" 2000

Ive always heard Amethyst was only 100 copies, and Id heard Wyzard was 100 - Future Knights / 500 Knights of Metal. 2000 seems really high given how rarely it turns up, unless theres a big stock somewhere either forgotten or destroyed.
Some others I wonder about:
Warzwolf, Messiah - Going Insane, Iron Cross (FL), Metal Merchant, Witch - Salem's Rise, and not 80s, but close enough for me: Thynn Ice and Zaxas
Yeah I heard wild stories about that one! Limited to one copy per band member and one for the producer or something... apparently each with a different cover?!rumblefist wrote:Belcebu - "En Vivo" LP 1984 - 6 copies only
(some people say - even lesser - like only 3 or 4)
That's actually what they wrote in an old Metal Hammer (Ger) article from 1985.

I am really sorry, it was a terrible mistake (actually more like a joke i didnt understand and took for granted), no Warzwolf box foundsoldier of sunrise wrote:Warzwolf is also supposed to be 100, copies was recently unearthed so more info may resurface...
Was the Amethyst really pressed in so many copies??? 100 was the story i have heard also, and about Wyzard 100/500 here too...
Another one i was always wondering about is the first Purgatory EP, seen it mentioned that only 100 were made but seen it offered a few times... and not for any high price to speak of... Any confirmed info on that one?
1000 would have been my guess and miss typed info about 100 was probably taken as granted or something?
