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

Mercyful-Fate-‎–-Black-Message-LP-1985-Evil-Records-1

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.
