Is there a recent boot of this? https://www.metal-archives.com/albums/D ... nce/425411
Suddenly a lot of cheap-ish copies have appeared, all of them offered from sellers in Russia / Eastern Europe.
Do you know?

I know there was a recent-ish reissue on Roxx Records - maybe that is what you are seeing?

I bought this from a Russian seller five or six years ago. Same with the first Tourniquet and possibly some other Intense Records vinyl. I used to see them offered in Russia a lot more often than other countries. I don't know, but my theory has always been this.

Vinyl was more or less dead in the US in 1990. The last vinyl releases on Intense were in 1990, and everyone else also quit manufacturing vinyl. By 1992 or so, Intense was probably sitting on a large dead stock of obsolete product. Nobody in Europe wanted it (they didn't care much for the bands and vinyl was being phased out there too anyway), so they sold it dirt cheap to Russia.

Makes sense, it's almost always releases on Intense Records, offered by sellers in Russia, The Ukraine, Poland or thereabouts.
