    I think my rarest/most valuable album was Gorement's The Ending Quest, which I just sold a few hours ago for $492.

    My most valuable item was an original pressing ('splattered spleen' edition) of the Severed Survival LP which was signed by the band.

    Without the signature it usually runs about $150 USD, with it I was able to sell it off for $250 USD.

    That Thorns Of The Carrion stuff sells well. I had Scarlet Tapestry and someone in Japan bought it for $180.

    Out of curiosity, I checked some of my stuff on discogs (I'm not a member there) and I was a bit surprised to find out that this seems to be my most valuable item:

    https://www.discogs.com/de/Mother-Earth-Transitions-/release/6205463

    As regards better-known bands, the vinyl version of Coroner's "Mental Vortex" and the original CD version of Holy Moses' "Finished with the Dogs" are probably my most valuable items. A far cry from some of the stuff mentioned before, but still quite decent for some ordinary releases.

    One of my rarest releases (no one has got it on discogs) is this (non-metal) CD:
    https://www.discogs.com/de/Gåte-Gåte/release/3330770

    And I've got a few demo-tapes which aren't even listed on discogs. Among them also the one with the most sentimental value for me, namely Fear of God's Demo '92:

    https://www.metal-archives.com/albums/Fear_of_God/1992_Demo_(II)/4848

    My copy is a bit different, because the background colour of the cover is some kind of light green, there is no copyright note and below the "Engineered by..."-line there are two lines "Produced by Fear of God" and "Special thanks to Jay Abbene". But what makes this item really special for me is Dawn Crosby's (R.I.P.) signature and personal dedication on the cassette and the inside of the cover.

    Christ! How come you decided to sell it? Do you have another copy?

    Pfft, it's better than a lot of better known Swedeath.

    I've been selling off a lot of rare death metal in the last couple of months. I have a giant collection packed with sought after shit that I can't even enjoy due to hyperacusis/tinnitus. It's pointless hoarding it, might as well make some money.

    Yeah, it has unfortunately just gotten worse and worse, and now I barely ever even attempt to listen to metal.

    Sorry to hear that btw. I hope it improves. Shit's a fucking curse.

    Listening to you guys talk about this shit is truly depressing.

    Out of curiosity, what do you listen to now since you can't really enjoy heavy metal anymore @Slayed Necros?

    thanks man. Yeah, hopefully they find some kind of cure while we're still around.

    all these bitch ass doctors and people try sugar coating it. "it'll get better" "it'll go back down". knew it was bullshit from the get go.

    The odd bit of country/folk, but I mostly avoid music entirely.
