Sounds awesome! more.

This reissue sounds really good in my opinion. A real shame the original cover wasn't used though. I was hoping it would be inside the gatefold but it is not.

In depth but quick review of this box set as compared to original LPs of each album.
Overall the box set sounds great and has good quality covers but I will detail them below.
1. Eclipse- the original 2006 Black Lodge LP has a nice textured matte... See full review

Thank you for this information. It prompted me to order it.

Are you able to comment on the sound quality of this release?

I concur that this is a good reissue. It is much better than the 2010 LP.

How does this beast sound? Can anyone compare an original or the reissue from 2010 to this 2021 reissue?
thanks

Most of the pressings I have or have had from Cargo are not the best. I won't say they are out right bad but compared to an original or a newer reissue they are subpar.

Wow it has been a decade since you wrote this piece. I just acquired said Shiva album myself. I ran across it about 15 years ago at a thrift store but I wasn't as versed in traditional metal and NWOBHM back then. I was only scouting for death and... See full review

Just acquired this original Roadrunner pressing from 1995 and it sounds incredible!
I also have the 2007 and 2014 reissues and I will say the 2014 Metal Blade sounds very very good. The 2007 one is the worst of the bunch but not bad.

I could not find find a deal on an original press so I bought this and I will say it is fantastic.
The cover looks great and the sound is great. Lots of goodies inside like a poster and book.
Very undervalued Frost album.

I would say that whoever owned it in the past owned both albums and got them mixed up one day accidentally.

I want it too. I would pay a good amount for an original maybe $80 it if was in great shape. I would love a nice reissue though. If it is liked the newest Demanufacture the reissue will still be $50.

posted a comment on Bathory - Twilight Of The Gods. 10 months ago
This Bathory album is very good. If you seek something that sounds great and from the classic Viking period this is your album. Twilight takes many cues from Hammerheart and explores more of the epic sounds and acoustics toning down the aggresion. ... See full review

I also received mine on Wednesday. It is pretty cool. I hope once all 4 releases are out in comes in a small box to put them all in.

Those are some of the best tracks. I used to think the same as you back in the 90s but those last tracks have really grown on me alot and I get excited to here them now. I used to think they had alot of glam and 80s sound left over but man they are... See full review

The band logo is blurry compared to the original. The cover image is slightly less sharp as well. It isn't blurry but more so than original.

Cut by Chris Bellman and spread across 2Lps. The sound on my copy sounds really good. It is better than the bootleg copy which I thought sounded good in its own right.
The cover is a little bit blurry and seems a tad smoothed out compared to the... See full review

The basic reissue is $25 or less. Original pressings fetch $150 or more depending on pressing and condition.
It is hardly a cash in or it would have been pressed many times again and again.

The bundle is not for me so I didn't buy it but the... See full review

I just received this as a gift from a friend. In my opinion this album rips hard and it is very brutal but so listenable and groovy at the same time. Production sounds amazing and think the vocals sounded super good on my system.

I just gifted my black copy with the hot foil logo reissue that came out a couple of years ago. I purchased this newest press to replace it and I must say it sounds really good on my system and my copy wasn't warped at all. I give it a thumbs up.

I personally owned an original CD, the Original Picture Disc and this newest reissue from several years ago.
I think this LP version sounds very good. It is pretty expensive now probably around $100

It is the first vinyl press but the album was still being reissued from its original CD release.
posted a comment on Slaughter - Stick It To Ya. about 1 year ago
The bad... The cover is very dark and soft. It isn't the worst but it's not good. No insert or anything.

The good... It sounds good in my opinion. Mine is flat and I heard little noise if any.

Here is my thoughts on this reissue from 2010.
I have the black version and the sound is pretty good, not amazing but I can jam it.
The LP was a bit noisy considering it looks NM. It also feels a bit loud and congested as well.
The jacket is a little... See full review

Not my experience with the black bootleg I got a couple of years ago. Maybe the red version was made somewhere else. Why did you buy the bootleg when you have the OG euro press? just curious.

Sorry just now seeing this comment. the resolution looks pretty good but the colors are very drab and not as bright on the CD or other LP version.

Sound is pretty good and my copy is flat and quiet. Cover is pretty low resolution however which is disappointing. Overall for the price it is a winner.

So I took a chance on this LP. I will go ahead and say that while it is kind of expensive $50 for a bootleg, it sounds really good and looks quite good too. Perhaps it was pressed from some FLAC digital master files. I was very satisfied. The... See full review

Great release on vinyl. I think the sound is great and the packaging is great too. A great album I have been wanting for many years. Definitely pick it up if you are into Dissection, Sacramentum, Necrophobic and the very early Gothenburg sounds.
