Hm... Is there any data base for vinyl bootlegs, similar to the Metal Treasures CD bootleg section?
The vinyl market is much safer than the CD one, as Doomedplanet (almost) said, and buying vinyl is not in my priorities right now (I hardly buy one LP for every 20 CDs) however I guess it's good to have the full picture.

Which metal vinyl rarities have been bootlegged to look like replicas of the originals? I only know of Solar Eagle EP and the Heavy Load debut.

I think this question deserves its own thread.

There is no "original" of "Paradise Lost" though.

Not on vinyl no, but it's still an LP boot of an existing non-demo studio album, with identical artwork and info to the official CD release on Restless.

a couple of others:

Kryst the Conqueror - s/t Pic LP
Apocalipsis - s/t

i think evil Dk never came out as pic disc-you re supposed to know its a boot.like valhalla,dragonne,hammerwitch and all those boots.
Also,running wild black hand inn-anyone is 100% sure that ever came out as an original vinyl or is it just boots of the cd out there? same press as savatage
cirith ungol PL of course you're supposed to know that too.
those presses of kraken,Satan's Host,jag panzer double pic disc,sirens pic disc etc.these all came out so long ago people these days just dont know they are 90s boots and often assume are originals.
Militia 7inch-you are also supposed to know that never came out as a seveninch.and legend-fjords those came out as sealed vinyls and cover on the side,very easy to tell.
generally, you're supposed to know a lot of things before hitting ebay.
I am so true my mp3 player's screen has slight ringwear
