King Diamond vinyl reissues 2014 from Metal Blade
« on: April 16, 2014, 12:56:17 PM »
I was on the Bull Moose music store online site and came across these:

http://www.bullmoose.com/p/16308319/king-diamond-them
http://www.bullmoose.com/p/16323986/king-diamond-abigail

This is a legit store.  I went on the Metal Blade site and saw no reference to these.

Anyone know anything about these reissues?

First time hear about this. I'll see about details, but this is totally unnecessary. Recently Cargo Records released Them & Abigail.

But the Cargo reissues sounded like crap and had horrible cheap packaging.  I returned the copy of Them I bought to Amazon because it was just a poor all-around release.

Yes, I agree with you, I have Cargo reissues like KD, MF, Obituary, Deicide and many others. Yes, they are crap but still I wanted those albums. I'm also scarred for the Metal Blade issues, how will they sound. Also I saw on amazon Dont Break the Oath.

Svart records, Earache and High Roller Records are the best. For KD and MF I really don't know but I will definetly buy pif these record companies release King's albums.

I was going to pre-order those, but wanted to buy them thru kngs store here. I asked if they would be available here, as i would rather order them direct to give king more of the profits, but last I looked I never got a response about availability.  I had them in my cart ready to go but changed my mind till I found out more about them.

Actually the ones I had questions about were reissues of Melissa and Them fro. Nuclear Blast.

Just try and find the original releases from Roadrunner, Metal blade and Massacre Records.
The (re)releases from Massace records concerning Voodoo, The Graveyard, The Spider's Lullabye and House Of God are excellent.
nah

Agree! Massacre also done well! Bub, we are speaking about 500 handnumbered copies, right? I don't have PD of Voodoo (I don't like PD) so I don't know do you speak about this issue or clear copy?

I know there are some colored vinyl releases as well. I am talking about the (indeed limited) black vinyl releases.

Apparently metal blade is going to be doing vinyls for some of the roadrunner stuff.  Rumor has it they are in financial trouble so they are licensing some of the back catalogue out.  Metal blade already did a reissue of a type o negative album for record store day but I haven't heard if it was decent or not.  I'm really hoping they do a good job because the reissues for the roadrunner stuff done so far has been pathetic, not too mention roadrunner is sitting on a gold mine of classic releases that could be reissued.

My "9" vinyl on Metal Blade sounds amazing. That was a new album, though. Its difficult to guess how a reissue will sound. Will they get their hands on the master tapes? Who knows. This makes me want to listen to my vinyls right now, but I punched my stereo receiver because it was shorting out.  :kopfpatsch:

Yeah I have all the original pressings of King's albums from FP to The Eye, as well as the Masscre reissues of Voodoo and Spider (which are pretty good, but not amazing).

I'm just looking for a good sounding version of Them.  The CDs all sound like crap, and the LPs are mediocre so I was hoping a remaster could fix its issues.

Not remaster, it would be nice to release master sound, like on first press  :icon_biggrin:

I think in july High Roller Records will release Possessed - Seven Churches on LP from original master tapes, and this is what I looking for. I preordered Death - Leprosy vinyl from Relapse and today I saw that will be remastered album. Too bad, but I don't have this album on vinyl so nevermind.

Them - remastered sound was disaster but I bought Cargo reissue on vinyl because I did not have this LP. And now I'm waiting for master sound on vinyl.  \m/

So these are up for pre-order here and if they turn out anything like the pictures I'll be happy.  So nice to see a Melissa where you can actually make out the cover.  I also like that they left the bonus tracks off.

I hated the reissues they did several years ago with the bonus tracks.  It ruined the way the sides were setup and the sound was not the best.  I pre-ordered them from my local record store, I cannot wait to get them.

Hoping to see Deadly Lullabyes available in the US shop.  I believe it's in the EMP shop but they won't ship to the US.

OK, they look legit to me. What am I missing? Why the question in this thread about the validity of these sweet vinyls? They are Metal Blade pressings, orderable from King's official merch shop and advertised on his Facebook page:

I probably mis-read you guys somewhere along the line. Carry on. I am going to go order these suckers right now.
