Sabbat – History Of A Time To Come LP 1987 Noise International ‎– N 0098

Sabbat – History Of A Time To Come LP 1987 Noise International ‎– N 0098

History of a Time to Come is the debut full-length album by the British thrash metal band Sabbat. Sabbat signed to Noise Records in late 1986 but was not allowed to execute the contract until their youngest member (Andy Sneap) turned 18.

History Of A Time To Come was recorded in Germany in 1987. The album never was an underground success and became a cult classic, but it never propelled the band anywhere near the heights reached by many other metal acts in the late 80s thrash heyday. Instead, the lyrics focused on themes of witchery and satanism.

The standout track is “For Those Who Died” which was later covered by the English black metal band Cradle Of Filth.

The band features guitarist Andy Sneap, who is in formative years has become a prolific heavy metal producer and engineer who has worked with Testament, Ronnie James Dio, Megadeth, and Accept. Andy is currently a member of Judas Priest.

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

Black Flag ‎– Damaged LP 1981 SST Records ‎– 9502 w/ Anti-Parent Sticker

AC/DC ‎– Powerage LP 1978 Atlantic ‎– KSD 19180 CANADA *Red Translucent Vinyl VG

Metallica ‎– Master Of Puppets LP 1986 Elektra ‎– 96 04391 VG/VG Canada

Turbonegro ‎– Scandinavian Leather LP 2003 Epitaph ‎– 82031-1 VG/VG

Metallica ‎– Kill ‘Em All LP 1988 Elektra ‎– 96 07661 CANADA VG/VG

Deicide ‎– Deicide LP 2010 Cargo Records ‎– RRCAR 8744-1 GERMANY VG+/EX

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”.

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

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

Cannibal Corpse ‎– Eaten Back To Life LP 2015 Back On Black ‎BOBV140LP Blue VG+

Death ‎– Spiritual Healing LP 1990 Under One Flag ‎– FLAG 38 VG/VG UK

Do You Have A Collection Like This You Would Like To Sell?

There were also a large mix of more common classic rock albums that were great none-the-less!

If you have a collection like this I am always looking to buy, it doesn’t matter what state or country you live in – but if you are in LA we can meet locally, hit me up — I’d love to meet you and give you some money for your collection!

While doing deals in Europe is slightly more complex than domestic deal they can be done all the same. The last few have been done by email only. This buy stated simply from the guy sending me the list above and this message, “Hi Jason, I’m in the UK and have a number of albums I am looking to sell. Please get in touch so we can discuss what I have to sell.”

The original owner sent me the photos below and I paid him via Paypal.

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

GOVERNOR OF DEATH – Red Red Rage (Slayer Cover / Andrew Cuomo Parody)

GOVERNOR OF DEATH - Red Red Rage (Slayer Cover : Andrew Cuomo Parody)

After not having released anything sense like 2014, I found a subject so timely, I decided to come out of musical retirement. Andrew Cuomo and his grandma killing was my inspiration. The hardest part about recording this was finding a way to scream it in my apartment, so it’s not 100% perfect but You get the point. Slayer!

Lyrics

Governor of Death

Brooklyn, the meaning of pain
Cuomo wants you to die
COVID death, immense decay
Rest homes rob you of your life

Forced in like cattle, you run
Stripped of your life’s worth
Human mice, for the Governer of Death.
Fifteen thousand more to die

Governor of Death
March to the Rest Home of the dead

Incompetent, Libtard of demise
Dumbass of CNN blood
Diminishing the real number
To benefit his re-election race
Readmitted with no mask
Feel the COVID infect you intensely
Daily briefing, just a massive of lie
But CNN still loves this guy

Governor of Death
March to the Rest Homes of the dead
Infamous Dumbass
Governer of Death

Iced Earth / Demons And Wizards Cancelled By Century Media

Jon Schaffer canceled from iced earth canceled from century media

After Iced Earth guitarist/songwriter Jon Schaffer was arrested for participating in the 1/6/2021 storming of the U.S. Capitol, he seems to have been dropped from the Century Media roster. All mentions of Iced Earth / Demon & Wizards are now removed from the Century Media artist roster. While the label hasn’t said anything publicly, it’s pretty clear what has happened. Ariel Pink was dropped this week from Mexican Summer records for attending the Trump’s rally, but not participating in the capitol building’s storming.

Schaffer faces six charges including:

  • Engaging in the act of physical violence in a Capitol building,
  • Knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority,
  • Disrupting the orderly conduct of government business,
  • Violent entry and disorderly conduct in a Capitol building,
  • Engaging in an act of physical violence in a Capitol building, and
  • Demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building.

Allegedly, he was brandishing bear mace which was used against capitol police.

Iced Earth Guitarist Jon Schaffer Involved In US Capitol Riots

Members of Iced Earth are distancing themselves from Schaffer. They posted on Instagram to denounce the raid on the capitol:

“We want to thank those of you who have sent words of support in recent days,” they wrote on Sunday (Jan. 10) in a post shared on bassist Luke Appleton and singer Stu Block’s Instagram pages. “Some of you have been concerned by our silence, which we understand. We needed some time to properly process the information and find out some facts before we made a statement.”

Regardless of where you stand on this debate, it seems Jon Schaffer has been canceled!

Iced Earth Guitarist Jon Schaffer Involved In US Capitol Riots

Iced Earth Guitarist Jon Schaffer Involved In US Capitol Riots

Iced Earth guitar player / founder / songwriter Jon Schaffer was among the mob of Trump supporters who stormed the US Capitol in Washington DC yesterday, January 6.

In a photo from Roberto Schmidt of the AFP agency, Schaffer is among a group of rioters who pushed past police and into the Capitol building.

Back in November, Schaffer was interviewed and said, “They will go down. They’re messing with the wrong people, believe me…If someone uses violence against us, we will react accordingly. Schaffer expressed his distrust of the US government, stating he was neither “a left-or-right guy.”

“I’m an American – that’s my country, that’s where I live,” he said. “I don’t trust my government. I don’t give a shit if it’s an ‘R’ or a ‘D’ next to the name of the person. I try to understand the bigger picture. I’ve done a lot of reading and a lot of studying. I’m a man of my convictions, and I don’t say stuff that I don’t truly believe.”

He continued, “You can’t put your hope into one president or one person, or a mayor or a governor or whatever. You’ve gotta be out there and actively put pressure on these people, let ’em know you’re paying attention. If you’re not paying attention, they’re gonna rob you and steal everything. Your freedom, too. Not just your money. They’re gonna steal your fucking freedom. ‘Cause they’re a bunch of sick control freaks.”
