    I believe the blue JEM was 500.....same with the FFTC pic disk.....not sure at all about the DODS lp...although I think it would be safe to assume there were 500 of those pressed as well.....no clue about the DO lp.....

    Your TGCD vinyl looks damaged in the lower right corner, shame! And price tags on CD's (let alone records!!), arrggh, can't stand that! Off they must go!!
    BMD was pressed on violet vinyl, black vinyl and picture disc by Northern Silence Productions (run by our friend norgash here on the forum), the picture disc is limited to 444 copies, the violet vinyl to 333 copies and I don't know about the black one (don't have it..). All versions are still available from NSP I believe, he's still listing them on ebay, correct me if I'm wrong.

    It would be really nice if info like this would be listed in the disco-section on the Kata-site, it's a shame so many bands don't do that, it's really the kind of info you wanna see on a band's official site (at least I do..).

    By the way guys, you should never leave the shrink wrapping on vinyls. Some companies use shrink wrapping that just keeps on shrinking. Thus if you are unlucky you may end up with a warped record after some time.

    I've seen one case like this in my life. I ordered Zyklon's Aeon LP, and the wrapping was so tightly around the covers it had warped the LP when it got to me. Back then I didn't know what caused this, but I got the information above from a Finnish owner of a black metal distro, who obviously has seen quite a lot of vinyls during his life.

    Cool, I'll email Hammerheart/Karmageddon Media about the Jhva Elohim Meth vinyl. I'll also email Avantgarde about DO and FFTC.

    I got the info of the BMD vinyl from the NSP website:

    Black vinyl gatefold: 444 handumbered copies (1st 144 with poster)
    Purple vinyl gatefold: 333 handnumbered copies (all with poster)
    Picture disc gatefold: 444 handnumbered copies (1st 144 with poster)

    Anders, maybe you personally know how many copies were pressed of the Dance Of December Souls Brazilian LP? As far as I know and heard it's 500.

    It is the shrinkwrap that is damaged, not the cover itself (btw, i did not know about that destroys records thing.. must take it off then..)
    however, the inlay on my VE record was damaged at delivery.. curse the bloody post office for ignoring the "handle with care" signs..
    And the pricetags are not on the covers but on the plastic case thing around the albums.. ergo, the records are not damaged :)

    Does that go for the Sounds Of Decay digi as well?

    @ Hevimees, thanks for the tip, I usually always take the shrinkwrap off, but I left it on my TGCD 0001/2000 (for no particular reason actually), but I took it off now.

    You can keep on using those, they are quite safe to use :)

    As I said, the original shrink wrapping that they put on some records at the factory may be the kind that just keeps on shrinking. The type of wrapping used varies, so this doesn't always happen.

    So if you are planning on keeping a newly bought sealed record for a long time, you should take the wrapping off since it may be the kind that just keeps on shrinking.

    I thought the numbers were on the cover, not the plastic?
