Personaly, what I can come up with right now is :

Masters Hammer (Everything)
Necropolis (California, USA) - Death Metal Demo, 1986
Evil Power (Fra) - First Invasion Demotape 1986
Nekromantie (Col) - Nekromantie 1987
Sabbat (UK) - All of them
Hell (UK) - All of them

Thanks to FOAD records I now have my absolute favourite demotapes on vinyl : Savage Death - Mass Genocide/Crucified in Hell.... AND THANKS to Destrozer for leading me there!

... to be continued.
Are you me? All these are exactly on my top 10 list for reissues on vinyl?

Not the best news! However, I have faith. Everything is being rereleased. And these songs are beautiful.

Michael Podrybau had no part of that demo so quite frankly his opinion on the matter does't mean anything.

There's nothing stopping a label from getting ahold of the rights holder of the songs and cutting a deal still.

I'm not saying it's going to happen any time soon but it's very much possible.

Magnus' demo tape from 1987 is an impeccable, evidently inspired by German contemporaries, piece of speed metal which deserves of reissue.

However, the band, as it seems, never cared about it, even in times when their other demos were rereleased on CDs. That's odd.

Flynn Records released 150 copies on vinyl and some more cassettes!
Price is a little too high though!

When was this? Can't find anything about it. Same label released the Witchslayer demo last year in the same quantities and it sold out straight away.

Are they even a legit label? Be nice if a proper label reissued these in decent quantities.... :?

The cassette is still available here:
https://glacier80smetal.bandcamp.com/al ... o-cassette
but the Flynn Records fb page has no mention of the vinyl so i assume it's now gone:
https://www.facebook.com/Flynn-Records- ... _w&fref=nf
No idea if the label is 100% legit though it looks like at least some of their releases are sanctioned by the bands.
I cannot, I shall not, I will not obey.

He told me he contacted 3 band members and approved this release since it is a fan-made release in such a limited pressing.
I see thanks to band members and managers for other releases in the Facebook page too.
So I think from the ethical perspective they are not bootlegs.

Contact him via email for copies. I bought mine yesterday, I am sure he has more!

This is the pre-EP demo. Those songs are on the EP too. Maybe different mix?
The release I am talking about is the post-EP demo from 1988. Absolute killer! 4 amazing songs not ever in a release except the original 1988 cassette. With Tim Lachman on vocals and none of the present line up playing there.

This is the release:

35 euro for a 12'' was kinda steep though.

This is their email: flynnrecordsandtapes@gmail.com
They are Italian.
Luca, the man behind, is very nice communicative guy. He will answer all questions regarding “officiality” of his releases and all stuff.
He had most of his releases available, but I think the “eye-catchers” Witch Slayer, Snair and Black Mass are sold out.

Here is all of their releases:

Just feel the same... Killer stuff all the way, but I truly hesitate to spend 35€ for a demo on vinyl (and I don’t count the 15€ shipping). If the Black Mass vinyl was still available, I would have ordered both (with the Glacier demo), but I don’t wanna buy 4 copies just to save money on shipping and sell the copies I don’t need (no need to increase the scarcity of such limited pressings).
