Can someone please help me out here, I have either a second, third or fourth pressing on black vinyl, and unsure how to tell the difference between the three, as they all appear to have the same labels and matrix numbers etc?

I picked this up at my local shop and left the record in the back seat of my car after I stopped in to work real quick. It was summer time, I thought I was gonna be in and out but ended up staying for an hour forgetting about my record, it ended up warping horribly! I tried to bake it back to normal but the grooves were toast, it sounded like I was trying to listen to a dusty warehouse. I was super bummed. Thankfully one came up for sale and I picked it up before it went back into scarcity. Great wax!!

I remember that only 25 copies were available for the public. The others were given to the band and friends.

I believe some -- perhaps many or even all -- copies of the first vinyl edition on Rise Above have a pressing defect on side B. Can anyone out there confirm, deny or expand on this?

The Dustmonger's Tale:

Back in 2004, I ordered a black vinyl copy from the Stoner Rock [dot com] webstore. While the album looked and otherwise sounded great, for much of the second side, every rotation came accompanied by a soft "shhk" noise. This was only audible between tracks and on "Altar of Melektaus", but since it ruined the "Weird Tales" comedown, I returned the album for a white vinyl copy...

Which had the same problem.

Asking around on SR, I learned that a few other members had similar problems with their copies. At which point, I emailed Lee at Rise Above. Without explicitly admitting anything, he seemed to confirm that the entire pressing was at least potentially defective. And while he was both apologetic and polite, the best he could offer was a refund or credit upon return.

I kept the album, of course. Every dope needs a throne.

I haven't heard anything about sound quality for this pressing, but my copy sounds fantastic. Extremely clean and quiet, totally pristine. The LP sleeves are also lined with plastic, so my copy doesn't even have paper crumbs to brush away. Great pressing. Hopefully you have the same experience.

Sounds good, nice covers, I love it. Get this album if you're just getting into doom, or want to take a peek into the smoke-hazed abyss.

Were any of these releases pressed at 180g or are all at 120g?

Looks more grey-ish than gold but under a strong light it does become more clear that it is gold, also the back cover has a upside down rise above records symbol and also cat number at the top, makes it easier to identify also came with a rise above sticker on front, the sound is great recommended.
