Ordered twice from Relapse and all was perfect. But now, when shipping is almost 20$ I stopped to make orders from them. Actually, I do not order from USA at all, only from amazon and hells headbangers, they send items to Europe through DHL and that shipping is fair.

yeah Amazon or your local store. I'm done with record companies.

I got Return of the Vampire today.  I still cannot find The Beginning.  Did anybody else get their hands on it??

I have always wanted to see 45RPM 2 X LP MFSL versions of THEM and Abigail. Not sure it will ever happen, but would love to see it. Right now, other then 1st pressings of everything, these Metal Blade reissues are the definitive versions to get.

I totally agree with you. The rare, original cover art was perfect and I don't know why it was changed (does anyone?).

We can hope... I'll keep my fingers crossed.

From a discogs comment

"If you missed out on the now sold out 1500 copies Red version on Metal Blade, it's getting reissued by metal blade on black vinyl in January"

Can anyone verify this? My red copy of Melissa got lost in the mail, and I really want to own it on vinyl.

yes, I wrote that. it was here: http://shop-hellsheadbangers.com/mercyful-fate-melissa-reissue-vinyl.asp
until a couple days ago, now sold out, they will get more eventually.

and it is also here: http://www.hrrshop.de/MERCYFUL-FATE-Melissa-BLACK_1

still waiting for The Beginning... also did anyone get the Abigail reissue on Music On Vinyl records, released on Halloween 2014? I am interested to know how it compares to the recent Metal Blade vinyl reissue, which sounds fantastic.

Weird that it doesn't seem to exist anywhere else... Not on amazon, not even on the metal blade shop. I live in Sweden, and this is probably my most wanted album now.

I just received my copies of the new Metal Blade vinyl pressings of Melissa (BLACK VINYL) and Return of the Vampire (WHITE VINYL)

Melissa (BLACK VINYL):
Inside it was the printed inner sleeve for Don’t Break the Oath – not Melissa.  Did anyone of you get the BLACK vinyl with the correct printed Melissa inner sleeve?

Return of the Vampire (WHITE VINYL):
I came WITHOUT inner sleeve.  Did anyone of you get it WITH a printed inner sleeve??

I didn't get Melissa reissue on Black vinyl.  My copy of Return of the Vampire on white vinyl did not have an inner sleeve.

I ordered Melissa off of Ebay. It says it is the Red version.
Here's hoping.
I feel that color enhances some releases.
I have two copies of Give Me Your Soul...both Bloody Dress. One is unopened.
I'd love to get the Cold As Ice version.
