I bought the edition "Translucent yellow" 2020 from the website Indiemerch but it is not in the reprint lists. Has anyone come across this edition? Barcode on sticker: 039842514789
Thank!

Is it just me or is the woman pictured on the front cover Melania Trump?

One of my best sounding records by far, got chills listening to this. Everything is mastered beautifully, dead silent. Highly reccomend this pressing to any fan of this album or King Diamond.

So apparently people in the States may have got stiffed on these reissues.

https://www.forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/the-hopefully-ultimate-king-diamond-mercyful-fate-thread.302645/page-10#post-24045339

It seems that the EU pressings are so far okay (my 180g black EU pressings are from the original tapes as KD mentioned in his press release).

So beware which ones you buy and if you have been stiffed then I suggest emailing Metal Blade direct and contacting them publicly on social media. They are probably hoping that no one will notice.

Great pressing and mastering, only downside is that the lake isn’t included.

Pressing quality is ok, not as good as the original road racer, but very closed to, really no big difference.
cover printing a little blurred, lighter colours - looks not as great as the original!

I can see that you have the same "lyric insert" than in my copy, and I'm under the impression they made a mistake in the factory, and shipped the album with the wrong insert inside. This insert does not belong to this album:
1) It has no lyrics, just two drawings that are absolutely unrelated to the songs
2) I own the original "Fatal Portrait" album and it has indeed an inner with the lyrics, liner notes about the album, and a drawing of the logo also seen on the front cover.
Let's hope they will send us all the correct insert.

I'm so glad these new releases happened, it is simply amazing to notice how much remasters have distorted the way we listen to music, I get that for some records they might be needed but we already went way too far with it, now I get a chance to listen to an original mix of a classic record on LP and even my girlfriend, that usually can't stand King's falsetto (I own dozens of Mercyful Fate & King Diamond CDs and vinyls, so I know he annoys her xD), listened to the record and said nothing while I was playing it, I can't really put a word to what is it but the mix in here just doesn't fatigue the ear in any sort of way. Great looking colour variation plus download code for FLAC files, MP3 or whatever, Metal Blade makes easily and by far the best metal packages nowadays.
