Metallica's Ride The Lightning had an accidental pressing with a green cover instead of a blue one. It was only 400 copies and i saw one on ebay go for $800 once.

That's a good one. Not to many people ever mention that one.

Desultory - Into Eternity..some crazy person is trying to sell that for 4k right here on amazon (which is nucking futs because it WILL be reissued at some point)

a lot of early 90's death metal goes into the $100 range

SEMPITERNAL DEATHREIGN - the Spooky Gloom is one of them
Uncanny - Splenium For Nyktophobia (original pressing) tends to go in that ballpark as well

You are right about the early 90's Death Metal. That's crazy!
I don't down-load at all. So, i'll never own a lot of those rare 90's albums unless they re-release them or I get lucky and score one for a decent price.
It's not that rare but (if you did'nt see it in an earlier post) today I scored GORGUT'S - Obscura {orig.'98 press} at a Wherehouse music store used for $6.99. That's lucky.

One that I wish I could get my hand's on is "Electrocution - Inside the Unreal"
I've never seen it for sale, anywhere. Not even on ebay.

Original press of God Macabre's The Winterlong.

Yeah..I keep a eye out for that one as well, but still havent seen it. The positive thing is a lot of old stuff is getting reissued so Im hoping to see it someday

EDIT: @Ian..thats another one I missed on the reissue, but I know that will come back again someday

I don't think it's a very good album, to be honest. I'd like to have an original as a collector's item, but I have no interest in a repress.

A customer says:
Ha, believe me, I know Peshmerga. Anything that's been hyped on Sevared, I've heard or heard of it. I like Peshmerga, but I prefer slam oriented death metal over straight BDM.

A customer says:
Oh, look, a $4,000 compact disc on amazon. Perhaps the seller's store being called "Ass to Mouth" is a clever jab at intermerchant politics.

@Ian
I've heard diffrent versions of what seperates "Slam Death" and "BDM"
What is your oppinion on the matter. What seperates the two from each other?

A customer says:
This may be a controversial stance, but what I think slam has that BDM doesn't is a dark, twisted atmosphere. Slam basically takes patterns whose simplicity and slow pace are normally reserved for funeral doom, and punctuates it in a way that makes it more direct, more immediate. I love how sadistic the slow, lumbering chugs sound. It's like... taking the suicidal overtones of funeral doom and redirecting it outwardly, so that hopeless desperation becomes a murderous rage. Yes, regardless of the stereotypes that come with "$lam" as many closed minded people refer to it as, my love of slam has its roots in my love for old school death/doom like Autopsy, Rippikoulu, Thergothon, etc.
Brutal death is good, but the mindless blasting bores me after a while.
The basic separation is speed. BDM is hyper fast and aggressive, slam is somber and morose.

Rippikoulu is one of my faves. I wish I knew of more bands that sounded like them.
Deathevokation is another band I realy like.

I for the life of me am unable to find anything by Slaughterlord or "Time Does Not Heal" from Dark Angel. I think I've seen them here on amazon but I am never able to find them in a record store.

I like how any_book has EVERY cd for about ten times the normal price. Anybody else recognize this???

A customer says:
Is Evoken's Antithesis of Light rare? I can't find it anywhere.

Gladiator's 'Designation' CD went for a few hundred bucks on ebay recently and had a hell of a lot of bids on it. What made me laugh was that at the same time someone else was selling the same CD in a similar condition ('buy it now') for $99. Still a lot, but loads less than the one being bid on: that's the bidding frenzy effect I 'spose.

Seeing the bidding war going on made me download it. Pretty good, actually.

I've seen that. They are CRAZY!! But you know what, I'm sure once in a while they find a sucker to pay their price.

Morpheus Descends - chronicles of shadowed ones
DARKIFIED - A Dance On The Grave
CIANIDE - The Dying Truth ('92 ORIG. press)
CIANIDE - A Descent Into Hell ('94 ORIG. press)

All four cd's cost between $80 to $100

Infester - To the Depths... in Degradation
$6 w/out the booklet on moribund, but buying a copy with the booklet runs a little over $100.

Sororicide - The Entity.

An admited bootleg just went for $220 on eBay. The original has gone for over a grand.
