Killer New Golden Age Of Metal Vinyl Collection I Just Bought!

thrash metal vinyl collection

It’s really hard to find good heavy metal vinyl collections, this is a rare exception. I managed to pick this one up with someone in Pittsburgh who answered my ad seeking vinyl collections. I paid a pretty penny for this collection, but it’s well worth it as is all the vinyl is in near-mint condition and contained many HUGE TILES (most first press). Check out this video of the unboxing.

You could check out this page where I listed the contents of all these albums, they are from the golden age of metal circa 1984 to 1989. A lot of good thrash metal and some hard to find hair metal records.

if you or anyone you know is looking to sell your heavy metal CDs or thrash, classic rock vinyl I am constantly looking to buy them and I pay top dollar.

The band has been active since 2002, despite playing death metal being considered illegal in the country. The government recognizes metal as “satanic music”, which is not allowed to be played in the country. They have played festivals all over the region, in places like Turkey, Dubai and Armenia.

Lyrics

Night is over
Now it’s dawn
Your final day
Has begun
Hear the steps
On the floor
Hear the sounds
Of the opened door
Too proud to scream
Too proud to beg for mercy
You will die by the executioner’s hand

Under The Guillotine

Tears are running
Down your cheeks
As you see
The axe of death
You were a prisoner
Didn’t care about the rules
Now it’s time
To pay for the fools

CHUCK BILLY from TESTAMENT Tests Positive For Coronavirus

chuck-billy tests positive for cover 19

TESTAMENT singer Chuck Billy has tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus.

The band said he received his test results on Saturday (March 21).

According to TESTAMENTBilly had “been feeling unwell” since returning home to the San Francisco Bay Area last week following the completion of “The Bay Strikes Back 2020”European tour with EXODUS and DEATH ANGEL.

Billy, who didn’t reveal if he had any idea how he contracted the virus, says he has been quarantined since arriving home.

TESTAMENT‘s full statement reads as follows:

“As many of you already know, after returning from the ‘Bay Strikes Back’ over Europe Tour last week, some of us in TESTAMENT have been feeling unwell and have made the decision along with our Doctors to be tested for the COVID-19 novel coronavirus. As of yesterday morning, Chuck and [his wife] Tiffany Billy‘s tests have come back positive as well as some crew members.

“We wanted to reach out to everyone who has been supporting us and expressing concern to inform you that we are doing what’s right, and what’s safe, and have all been quarantining ourselves since our return home; since before we were even tested. We are of course concerned for our families, our friends, our crew, our fellow musicians, and our fans. We’ve reached out to support our fellow Bay Area Bands who are also being proactive in their own camps, staying quarantined and safe, and will speak on their individual situations if and when they are ready to.

“At this moment we are currently focused on staying safe and quarantined, resting, getting ourselves back to health, and of course, sending well wishes, prayers, and positive energy towards our friends who are also sick. We also want to send well wishes to all of our fans and supporters in this time of crisis. We’re taking all the necessary steps to stay safe at home and we ask our friends and fans to do the same. Please take care of each other, and stay healthy so we can continue to thrash in the not so distant future!”

EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt revealed earlier in the week that he was exhibiting all the symptoms of COVID-19.

Holt said that he and his wife underwent coronavirus testing on Friday (March 20) but added that they will have to wait “seven to 10 days” for results.

DEATH ANGEL drummer Will Carroll has been in an intensive care unit at a Northern California hospital since Wednesday (March 18) after being taken “very ill” following the completion of “The Bay Strikes Back 2020” trek.

TESTAMENTEXODUS and DEATH ANGEL canceled at least two shows on “The Bay Strikes Back 2020” tour due to the fast-spreading outbreak of the new coronavirus: February 25 in Milan, Italy; and March 11 in Hannover, Germany.

More than 329,000 coronavirus cases have been reported worldwide and more than 24,000 deaths so far, putting public health systems and emergency services under immense pressure.

The fatality rate of the new coronavirus is believed to about 1 percent. “It’s about ten times more lethal than the seasonal flu,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institutes Of Allergy And Infectious Disease, said in congressional testimony on March 11.

U.S. officials have repeatedly urged Americans to heed what federal, state and local officials are asking of them in order to curtail the spread and dampen the impact of the virus on the population.

California recently estimated that more than half of the state — 25.5 million people — will get the new coronavirus over the next eight weeks.

new CDC report has offered proof that younger adults are just as likely as anyone to contract the virus, with nearly 40 percent of COVID-19 cases found between the ages of 20 and 54.

“I think everyone should be paying attention to this,” Stephen Morse, PhD, a professor of epidemiology at Columbia University, told The New York Times about the study. “It’s not just going to be the elderly. There will be people age 20 and up. They do have to be careful, even if they think that they’re young and healthy.”

Dave Mustaine: “I’m 100% Cancer-Free”

MEGADETH BAND PHOTO

Dave Mustaine said he is “100 percent” cancer-free during Megadeth’s concert at the SSE Arena in London Friday, January 31st.
Halfway through the band’s set, Mustaine told the crowd about his throat cancer diagnosis last year as Megadeth was recording their new album. “At first, I thought, ‘Am I afraid?'” Mustaine recalled. “And then I said, ‘No. I’m fucking pissed.’ And we stopped the record, we stopped everything.”

Dave mustaine

Mustaine said he underwent 51 radiation treatments and nine chemotherapy treatments after his diagnosis, noting that he was determined to beat the disease so he could play music again. October 16th, he went to go see the doctor, and he said, ‘You’re 100 percent free of cancer.'”
