Sacrifice – Live At The Starwood Club Toronto Nov 23 1985 – RARE LP ALERT!

SACRIFICE THRASH METAL BAND CANADA

Toronto’s Sacrifice is definitely on my list of metal bands that should have been bigger. 1985’s “Torment in Fire” is the first wave black metal classic, and 1987’s “Forward To Termination” is a thrash metal classic that is easily on par or better than many of their peers from the Golden Age Of Metal. Despite playing the right kind of music at precisely the right time and quite well, mainstream success was in the cards for Sacrifice.

The band released a few more albums in the early 90s, then broke up and reformed in 2008, and is still active today.

Sacrifice in 2009

Newly released on Blessed Curse Recordings comes an excellent treat for a fan of this band. “Sacrifice – Live At The Starwood Club Toronto Nov 23, 1985” documents the band (as the title would suggest) — Sacrifice playing a live set very early in their career between the release of “Torment in Fire” and “Forward To Termination“.

New Live Album 2022

Sacrifice - Live At The Starwood Club Toronto Nov 23 1985

All of the songs are selections from “Torment In Fire” and are as follows:

  1. POSSESSION
  2. SACRIFICE
  3. INFERNAL VISIONS
  4. TURN IN YOUR GRAVE
  5. BURNED AT THE STAKE
  6. HOMICIDAL BREATH
  7. NECRONOMICON
  8. DECAPITATION
  9. BEYOND DEATH

Listen On Youtube

The recordings are rough and raw but are far from terrible. Unfortunately, there are only 500 copies of this album available, and they are hand-numbered, so grab one while you can.

Our store is now open, and you can grab a copy here.

14 Most Expensive Punk, Metal, and Rock Albums I Have Above $200

Verbal-Abuse-–-Just-An-American-Band-LP-1984-Fowl-Records-–-5

I searched my inventory and pulled everything in my collection with a value above 200 dollars — hence, the strange number of 14 items in this list. In the video in this post, you can see the walk-thru of my top picks. In addition, I included a list below with pictures and comments on each record and approximate value.

Most of the 14 vinyl that made this list are either metal or punk; however, there were a few oddballs from different genres.

The Truth About Discogs Median Value

I did not look at the Discog’s median value and accept it as gospel. It’s true, Discogs is one of the seven wonders of the internet; however, just going on median value is very deceptive, and here’s why:

  1. Discogs calculates value based on the album’s limited sales on Discogs. If an album is ordinarily worth $100 and somebody sells a fair copy with no cover for $5, this sale is factored in and drags the price down. Conversely, if someone sells an album sealed or autographed copy for far more, it will skew the median up. However, copies are more often sold in poor condition, so that the value will typically skew lower.
  2. Much of the Discogs data is old. Discogs is a big market for vinyl, but it is nowhere near the size of eBay. Therefore, a lot of the information it uses to calculate the value of an album can be as much as 21 years old and based on only a limited number of sales. As we all know, albums appreciate, inflation is real, and the vinyl market changes. None of this is factored into the Discogs median value.
  3. Most sellers on Discogs are not in the United States. Since the site’s algorithm is not very sophisticated, it is easy to game the rankings by inflating shipping costs. If you are in the US, try to buy an album for even close to the listed median value listed – 99% of the time you can’t!

List of Our 14 Most Expensive Punk and Metal Vinyl LPS

Here is the list of the 14 punk/metal vinyl albums from the video at the top of this post. I included the price and a couple of random notes about each.

1. She Wants Revenge – She Wants Revenge LP 2006 Flawless Records B000614801

I’m not exactly sure why this one is worth so much. Even copies in crappy condition seem to be going for $600. Copies of this album in excellent condition go for $1000 and sometimes higher. If anyone knows why this one is so pricey, please leave some info in the comments because I can’t figure it out.

Value: $1000 USD

2. Descendents – Cool To Be You LP 2004 Fat Wreck Chords FAT672-1 Blue Vinyl

This usually isn’t a super expensive album, but the limited first pressing on blue vinyl is worth a pretty penny.

VALUE $600 USD

3. Danzig ‎– Danzig 4P LP 1994 American Recordings ‎– 9 45647-1

This album usually sells for around $300. This copy was owned personally by Glenn Danzig and is factory sealed.

VALUE $600 USD

4. Rich Kids On LSD – Rock N Roll Nightmare LP 1987 Alchemy VM104

I usually don’t include autographed albums because it is such a subjective value. Even unsigned, this album is $300-$400 if the comic book is included and in good condition. However, I included this one with the autographs because everyone in this band is pretty much dead.

VALUE $500 USD

5. Pantera – Power Metal LP 1988 Metal Magic Records – MMR-1988

According to the band, this album is completely out of print and will never be repressed or reissued, making original copies worth a ton. Despite the corny hair metal image, “Power Metal” is a solid album that rivals some of the band’s later output.

VALUE $400 USD

6. Verbal Abuse – Just An American Band LP 1984 Fowl Records – #5

Punk/hardcore done to perfection. You know you are doing something right if Slayer does a cover album (Undisputed Attitude) featuring six songs from this alum. There are many bootlegs and represses of this album. First pressing like this are extremely rare.

VALUE $400

7. Queens Of The Stone Age – Queens Of The Stone Age LP 2010 Rekords Rekords

This is another one that caught me off guard because this pressing is a 2010 reissue of 1998 debut with a different cover. Original presses go for over a thousand dollars, and the represses are not cheap either.

VALUE $300 USD

8. Samhain ‎– November-Coming-Fire LP 1986 Plan 9 ‎– PL9-07

Probably my favorite album Danzig ever recorded and one of the many featuring his vocals to make this list.

VALUE $275 USD

9. Danzig – Thrall-Demonsweatlive LP [Picture Disc] 1993 Def American – 514 876-1

Unlike the Samhain album listed at #8, this is from my least favorite techno/electronic period of Glenn Danzig’s career. Even so, these limited edition picture discs are worth a pretty penny, and people seem to buy them.

VALUE $250 USD

10. Carnivore ‎– Retaliation LP 1987 Roadracer Records ‎– RR 9597

Probably one of my favorite metal albums of all time – Carnivore’s “Retaliation” still stands up to this day, yet could have never come out in today’s politically correct “woke” climate. But, like virtually everything after the death of Peter Steele in 2010 – the value has gone up dramatically.

VALUE $250 USD

11. Sodom – Obsessed By Cruelty LP 2016 Wax Maniax – WM55029

A 2016 reissue of Sodom’s first LP from their wave black metal period, Obsessed By Cruelty, is surprisingly pricey and simultaneously loved and hated by metal fans.

VALUE $250 USD

12. Misfits – Earth A.D. / Wolfsblood LP 1984 Aggressive Rockproduktionen – AG 0024

Original German press with inner sleeve and order form.

VALUE $240 USD

13. Exhorder – Slaughter In The Vatican LP 1990 Roadracer RO 9363-1

This absolutely brutal thrash metal album came out a bit late in 1990 but still holds up to this day. After taking 30 years off, Exhorder returned in 2019 and still tours to this day.

VALUE $230 USD

14. Death – Scream Bloody Gore LP 1987 Under One Flag ‎– FLAG 12

Scream Bloody Gore” along with “Leprosy” and “Spiritual Healing” are my three favorite albums from the Death’s caveman-style death metal period before they went in a more technical direction.

VALUE $200 USD

Testament, Exodus and Death Angel Postpone Bay Strikes Back Tour Until 2022

Testament Bay Strikes Back 2022 Tour

The Testament, Exodus and Death Angel “The Bay Strikes Back” Tour has been postponed until April 2022, citing the Delta variant of COVID 19. Testament guitarist Alex Skolnick, who is a notorious Libtard, complains “The type of disruptions Kiss and other large outdoor venue tours have experienced could cause our shows to be permanently cancelled – a lose/lose for everyone.”

The guitarist continues…

“The fact that a lower budget tour such as ours is limited to indoor venues with tight backstage space only adds to the risk. It should go without saying that calling off these dates was a ‘last resort’ decision, and everyone involved would much rather this weren’t the case. However, this is the new reality we’re all in.”.

We are quite sure that by 2022, there will be another wave of COVID that will just push this tour back even further. This is the clown world we are living in. It is worth noting, all three bands seem fine with braving the pandemic for a day to play the Aftershock Festival in San Francisco.

2022 The Bay Strikes Back Tour Dates

The rescheduled 2022 tour dates are as follows.

4/9 – San Luis Obispo, CA – Fremont Theater
4/10 – Anaheim, CA – House of Blues
4/12 – San Diego, CA – House of Blues
4/13 – Las Vegas, NV – House of Blues

4/23 – New Orleans, LA – House of Blues

4/27 – Raleigh, NC – The Ritz
4/30 – Sayreville, NJ -Starland Ballroom

Also reporting difficulties touring is Heathen, saying smaller bands like themselves were unlikely to even find a place on the touring circuit.

What Happened to The Thrash Metal Band Heathen? (Breaking The Silence)

heathen band 1987

Just the other day, I was wondering what happened to the San Fransisco thrash metal band Heathen. So after spinning a copy of Breaking The Silence, I decided to find out. It seemed that Heathen has being groomed for success. They were in the right place at the right time (in the Golden Era of thrash metal), they got on all the suitable tours, had big-name rock producers (Ronny Montrose) producing them, and even seemed to be getting a push from the record company?

Breaking The Silence Full Album

So what happened? Why did thrash metal success elude Heathen?

I was aware that the only two albums were Breaking the Silence (1987) and Victims of Deception (1991). Victims came out right as the thrash metal scene was wiped out by grunge, but Breaking the Silence had a small amount of airplay and even a video for the Sweet cover “Set Me Free” in rotation on Headbangers Ball.

During the “Breaking” heyday of the band, they were plagued with lineup changes, which led to the long period between their first two records. Guitarist (and absolute shedder) Lee Atlus was the only stable member during that time.

Victim Of Deception Full Album

In 2005 Lee Atlus replaced Rick Hunolt on guitar in Exodus, which he still plays with to this day.

Reunions 2009 / 2020

In 2009 the band reunited and released The Evolution Of Chaos. Heathen toured for a few months before again being hit with more lineup changes, which lead to further inactivity.

In 2020, Heathen reformed again and released Empire Of The Blind, though the band is skeptical about how much they will be able to tour to support the album due to the glut of bands wanting to get on the road after COVID.

I hope that brings your up to date!

Killer 80s Thrash Metal Record Collection I Bought From England

KING-DIAMOND-CONSPIRACY-LP

I decided to wait a bit to update this blog with some of my latest thrash metal finds. The collector I have been buying these from in England has been sending them to me in Los Angels 20 records at a time via DHL. Every deal I make is a bit different when I am buying heavy metal LP, CD, and cassette collections. Especially since the start of the pandemic, I have been doing all of my deals without even meeting the seller — all have been purchased generally via email. Payments are made to sellers via wire, cash, Venmo, or PayPal and I buy from all 50 states and countries all over the world.

Enough with the shop talk, let’s get on to these albums, and there are some great ones. This post is split into 3 videos with a list of LPs below. There are links to pages and blogs on this site that have more information about the artists and releases.

Killer Death Metal CD and Record Collection I Bought From Greece

Death – Scream Bloody Gore LP Under One Flag ‎– FLAG 12 UK

A private collector from Greece got hold of me because he had posted a link to a collection he was selling online.

Especially since the beginning of the pandemic, I have done most of my buying without even meeting the buyer. After contacting me about the availability of this collection, this whole deal was done over email. The seller was in Greece, and I am in Los Angeles. Even though I am based in Califonia, I buy metal CD collections everywhere in the world, not just locally.

The standout in the collection was three copies of Death’s “Scream Bloody Gore” (all original 1987 pressings). In addition, the was one original U.S. Combat Records pressing, one Under One Flag European pressing, and one French pressing on N.E.W. Musicdisc. The complete list of records is in the list below.

Killer New First Press UK Thrash Metal Collection I Just Bought

BOLT-THROWER-Realm-of-Chaos-MOSH13

In the video and listed below on this post is a thrash metal vinyl collection I just bought from a guy in the United Kingdom. All of these are LPs first pressing from the 1980s and 1990s. Since the start of COVID-19, I have more frequently been buying collections without ever meeting the actual owner, at times never even talking to them. Instead, the deals are all worked out over email. So far, so good. All of the transactions have gone off without a hitch.

Here is a video of all of the awesome LPs I picked up on this awesome deal.

Photos

Here are some photos of some of my favorite LPs from this haul. One of my favorites is the cult classic “History Of A Time To Come” by Sabbat. The 2 Bolt Thrower “Warmaster” and “Realms Of Chaos” are both excellent and very hard to find as well. The rarest and expensive album is the first press Sadus “Illusions” album that is self-released. I’m sure how many copies of that were pressed, but it wasn’t very many. It was later reissued as “Chemical Exposure” by Roadracer Records (also included in this collection). Also great was the Metallica “Ride The Lightning” 1987 reissue limited edition DMM master – super rare…I’ve never even had one of these before.
