There will be re-releases by Metal Blade, a record company who knows how to do re-releases, which is great news.

I send a chat message to Metal Blade about this, since Jean le Noir mentioned re-releases here: http://www.kingdiamondcoven.com/CWWforum/index.php?topic=81.100

Apparently the re-releases are Europe only, but @ https://www.amazon.com/Time-Mercyful-Fate/dp/B01HRDH1KE/ref=sr_1_1_twi_lp__3?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1468420088&sr=1-1&keywords=mercyful+fate+time  there seems a pre-order for a US release?
So, that's a bit puzzling. The amazon link might be giving wrong info though.
If one should know, it would be Metal Blade themselfes.

There will more releases in october. Possibly, Into The Unkown (very rare at the moment) and Dead Again or 9.

Yeah, i like the oak color look.   \m/

I normally go for black vinyl when possible, but since this one is really looking cool, i might go for the old oak one  \m/

As mentioned above, yes:
In The Shadows will be released on 180 g black vinyl as well as on purple blue marbled vinyl (ltd. 300) and old oak marbled vinyl (ltd. 200). Time will be released on 180 g black vinyl as well as on bone colored vinyl (ltd. 300) and bronze marbled vinyl (ltd. 200).

Just pre-ordered the bone colored Time and the old oak marbled In the Shadows.

The Into The Unknown and Time  Night Of The Vinyl Dead releases are indeed very rare. I have both in my collection.   :diabo_do_msn:
Metal Blade will release more Mercyul Fate vinyl in october. I think (not confirmed) Into The Unkown will be one of those titles.

Nice!  Glad I never ended up getting in the shadows when back on black did it because this one will be much better I'm sure.

It will be much better but I have BoB reissue and I am fine with that. This color was also used for Slayer Hell Awaits reissue.

Even if I got previous editions of these records on lp, this is certainly excellent news. Stocking these for sure!
