Massive 80s/90s Thrash, Death, and Black Metal Vinyl / CD Collection

Morpheus-Descends-Ritual-of-Infinity-Blue-2015-CRYPT-60

Below is a video of the thrash metal vinyl from a massive death metal LP and CD collection I just purchased from a collector in Colorado.

The original owner was a younger guy, but the entire collection consisted of 20% from the Golden Age Of Thrash Metal and 80% from the 90s peak of death metal. 95% of these albums are reissues, but a few first are pressings that include “Slowly We Rot” and “Cause Of Death” from Obituary.

Even some of the reissues can be shockingly expensive due to the 7-12 month delays in vinyl production that is now plaguing the music industry.

I have cataloged the inventory from this purchase below. If you are looking to buy any of the entries listed can do so at ThrashMetalIQ on eBay.

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

120K Metal and Punk Vinyl Collection I Bought In Los Angeles

Carnivore-‎–-Retaliation-LP-1987-Roadracer-Records-‎–-RR-9597-EXEX-In-OG-Shrink

The video below is just a portion of a rare metal and punk vinyl collection I valued at approximately $120,000. I recently bought it from a private collector here in Los Angeles.

This epic record collection consisted of around 3500 12″ LPs and 1000 7″ singles. Since the start of COVID, most of the records I have been buying have all been internationally, but this collection I found locally in Los Angeles. After some negotiation with the seller, this purchase was by far my largest, which I picked up for $67,000.

The Anatomy Of A Deal

In the weeks leading up to the purchase, the seller allowed me to appraise the albums one by one (which took me over a week to do). I entered them all in notebooks. You can see an example of my appraisal below.

Albums are hot right now. Unfortunately, some collectors have an unrealistic idea of what they are worth, but as a buyer, you need to spend a lot of money to buy good collections of rare metal and punk albums. Therefore, I tailor my offers to be at least 50% of the total value as a rule of thumb. I am negotiable up to roughly 60%, but it can be higher under rare circumstances. Above 70% of the total value, the seller would make the same amount of money selling them on eBay individually.

Also, remember that even if the seller were selling it to another party that wasn’t a reseller, the buyer wouldn’t pay the total price for every album; there would be some discount.

Here are some photos from the gem vinyl in the video above. The first video is less than 20% of the collection. I will update this post or create a new one to showcase some of the records. Unfortueny, I can’t make a complete list as I did here of all of them, but feel free to contact me if you are looking for something specific.

Collection Highlights

Some of the my favorite pieces in this collection are as follows. I have timestamped some of the links to take you to exactly the spot in the video where these metal and punk LP appear.

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.

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.
