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


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“.

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.

Mercyful Fate ‎– Black Message LP 1985 Evil Records – RARE / UNOFFICIAL


Black Message is an unofficial bootleg release that came out in 1986 on a German label. The first version of the album had a white label with no writing or information on it. Because of the unofficial nature of this release, it is blocked for sale on Discogs. You can find it on eBay and it usually costs around $400 for the black version. There is also a multicolor swirl version that was released in 1986. It usually sells for a higher price — but collectors like the black version better because it comes with a real sleeve.

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 contains 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.

Nuclear Assault – Game Over 1986 Combat Records

Game Over is the debut album by Nuclear Assault. Most fans consider it their best. Nuclear Assault came into being after Anthrax bassist Danny Lilker was fired from Anthrax because he wanted to pursue more aggressive forms of music. After recording a handful of demos and doing some heavy touring the band signed to Comat Records and released Game Over. The album received a lot of critical acclaims and is considered by many to be the band’s best album.

Misfits ‎- Misfits CD 1986 Plan 9 - PL9-CD1

The original CD pressings were done in Japan and Austria. Since 1988 (when the album was reissued), pressings have been done in the US. This album was initially intended to be a CD-only release but was reissued after it was bootlegged onto LP. The CD format contains pictures not available in other formats.

The image on the back of the CD insert and record sleeve is a photograph of Glenn Danzig superimposed onto a reversed mirror-image photo of the Collection II album cover. Originally an untitled album, this release is now advertised as Collection I or Collections. The picture on the inside of the CD booklet is the distorted Beware cover photo that was used as a promotional band photo in 1979
