« on: September 14, 2017, 01:36:11 PM »
Hi Diamondbangers,

Today Metal Blade announced a King Diamond die-cut-pumpkin-shaped 10" vinyl (limited to 500 copies) to celebrate this year's Halloween and Dia de Los Muertos.

King Diamond "Halloween (live)"
SIDE A
1. Halloween (Live from Deadly Lullabyes Live)
SIDE B
2. Sleepless Nights (Live from Deadly Lullabyes Live)

It will be available for pre-order via IndieMerch https://www.indiemerch.com/metalbladerecords/search/?q=MBR-Halloween-2017 and is currently available in Germany via EMP http://www.emp.de/art_369856/

Update: Available on King Diamond store: https://www.indiemerch.com/kingdiamond/item/53882 - I already bought!  :cool: :gah: \m/
Update 2: They changed the size for a 10" and limited to 500 copies and not 1000 as previously announced

Normally I wouldn't buy something like that since there is really nothing new here musically, but I've been trying to get all the official (and in some cases unofficial) KD/MF picture discs there are, so not gonna let this one go. Ordered!  \m/

It's weird that the indiemerch site says this release is for december.
The Emp one for October, a dew days before Halloween.
The october date makes more sense.

I agree. We had the same discussion here.
If you check the detail on Metal Blade store, they say that "the product is imported from Europe".
Before buy via IndieMerchan I tried to order via EMP to get it earlier, but I have no success when I setup the shipping address to Brazil.

I do not think you can make an account with Emp when you are from brazil.
Emp is european only. Being Dutch, i can only make an account on the Dutch Emp site.
Same for Germans, Greek (which i found out since i am on holiday in Greece atm),  Sweden or whatever European country fans buy from.
I see you can also login through facebook.
I don't know if ordering is usefull than.

Last year I ordered some things there.
The only thing that I did was to change to the UK website on the bottom and all the same items were available to purchase.
When I tried to do the same the product wasn't available.
The weird thing is: Why to lock(?) only for Germany/Europe and if this release is to celebrate Halloween why will be shipped only in December?
But that's fine. I loved the shape, already ordered and now I'm counting down the weeks to see the Master in Chile!  :gah:

Brian Slager had an interview with the Dutch metal press (this because of his book: For the sake of heaviness, check that one out) and in that inteview he said, the planning for a new King Diamond release is by the end of next year. So patience.
There will be the dvd / blu ray release in the beginning of next year first.

A new album by the end of next year..... such a long time. Patience is a virtue, "they" say.

I got my copy! \m/



Unfortunately it's a bit bend. Funny enough, it's still playable. Played it once.
However, i did not bought it to play the picture disc.
I just got it for collector's sake being a King fan.

I ordered another one. The online shop says they have it back in stock. Originally it would be 500 copies, but apparently there are now 2000 copies pressed.
See if the new one is bend as well. It either happened at the distributioin center or where they pressed the picture discs.
If it's not bend, cool. If it is bend, i will send that one back.
Or maybe just stick to it. It will probably be worth something later.

I am tempted to send this one back, but since this is a limited item, i might end up not having a copy at all.
This when the new order doesn't get delivered since they might be out of stock and the website isn't updated. It happened before.

I'll wait for the new copy first.

Bummer. Wonder if there is a way to straighten it out without damaging it further. Maybe sandwiched between a couple heavy books, and low heat setting in the oven for a few minutes at a time? If the second one is warped, I would try it.

And indeed, i got my 2nd copy. Warped as well.   :(

It's still playble. But it doesn't look nice.

I am afraid more copies will be warped.

Sadly, Metal Blade has a problems in the last time with warped records. Execration - Return to the Void also. It is playable too, but it is annoying.

That sucks! I would email them and g e t them to send me a replacement. The whole idea of collectables is presentation, especially something like a picture disc. I had a defective Opeth lp sent to me once, and all it took was an email for a new one. They didn't even want the defective one back.
