Great Heavy Metal / Classic Rock Collection I Bought Locally In Los Angeles

Obituary ‎– Cause Of Death LP 2010 Cargo Records ‎– RRCAR 8767-1

The video above is a collection I bought locally in Los Angeles from a girl whose boyfriend had gone back to Canada and didn’t return for many months. I paid a fair price for this collection, but got a way better deal that I would normally get buying from a collector that was trying to cash in (and there’s nothing wrong with that).

The average condition was a long way from near mint and was an average of “very good”. It was a mix of classic rock, hard rock, thrash metal, and punk.

Some of the standouts in the collection included:

Samhain ‎– November-Coming-Fire LP – 1986 Plan 9 ‎– PL9-07 VG/VG – this was an actual first press, it was difficult to tell with reading the runout matrix which is.

Matrix / Runout (A-side etchings): PL-9-07-A -Pa.1-86
Matrix / Runout (B-side etchings): PL-9-07-B -Pa.1-86 
Matrix / Runout (Stamped on both sides, EDP is circled): MASTERED BY TRUTONE EDP
Matrix / Runout (A-side label): PL9-07-A
Matrix / Runout (B-side label): PL9-07-B

Autopsy ‎– Severed Survival LP 1989 Peaceville ‎– VILE 12 United Kingdom VG/VG – very rare – one of the first albums to come out on Peacevillle Records (1989) – which didn’t get on the map as a big underground label until the 1990s/

Autopsy ‎– Severed Survival LP 1989 Peaceville ‎– VILE 12

Misfits ‎– Misfits LP 1988 Plan 9 ‎– PL9-09 VG/VG

Kiss ‎– Kiss LP 1974 Casablanca ‎– NB 9001 ‎VG/VG 1st Press Blue Label – with the alternate track list without “Kissin’ Time” – which was added on the 2nd pressing because the record company didn’t feel like there was “a hit”.

Rare 80s Thrash Metal Vinyl Collection I Just Bought From Europe

This is a killer super-rare vinyl collection I just bought from a guy in Europe. The original owner contacted me through my blog, and we exchanged emails over a few weeks. It took a bit to get comfortable with wiring thousand of dollars overseas to someone I didn’t know, but I buy heavy metal record and CD collections all the time, and I’ve never had an issue.

The embed video is a walkthru of everything included in this epic thrash metal collection, which consisted of 177 albums. Included, were about 15 of them were non-thrash guitar nerd albums, so I removed them to stick to the thrash for this video.

Video Walkthru

Photo Gallery

Below is a photo gallery of some of the standouts, although most of them were pretty epic. The vinyl was at worst VG+ and quite a bit isEX / NM. The original owner stored all of these albums in protective sleeves, so the album jacket quality is impressive, 95% being VG+ to NM.

Unboxing Video

We filmed this video as I unboxed the album collection for the first time when it first arrived from Belgium

So mush suspense!

List Of Titles

I had a good idea of what titles were included in this collection, although to be honest, I was not 100% sure either! The original owner never compiled a list. He hand-wrote lists of the titles in this collection of paper and then emailed me photos. (see below)

Slayer ‎– Reign In Blood LP 1986 Def Jam Recordings ‎– 924 131-1 – Europe EX/EX

Metallica ‎– …And Justice For All LP 1988 Vertigo ‎– 836 062-1 EX/EX Holland

Metallica ‎– Ride The Lightning LP 1984 Roadrunner ‎– RR 9848 EX/VG+ Europe

Metallica ‎– Kill ‘Em All LP 1983 Roadrunner Records ‎– RR 9902 VG+/EX Netherlands

Metallica ‎– Metallica LP 1991 Vertigo ‎– 510 022-1 UK EX/EX

Metallica ‎– Master Of Puppets 2x LP Music For Nations ‎– MFN 60 DM EX/EX UK – Limited Edition Europe, 2x $% RPM – direct metal mastering

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.

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.'”
