Posting here to see if anyone has heard anything or come across any of the glow in the dark versions of this album having a misprint. I have a copy of this album and sides A,B, & D have the proper matrix in the run out and the songs are correct but side C has the matrix for Phil Campbell and the Bastard Sons and side C has 3 songs from Phil Campbell instead of the 3 songs that are supposed to be by Accept. I have talked to Accept management and Nuclear Blast and they all try to tell me this is impossible since they haven't heard about any issues. Well it isn't impossible because I have one with this issue. Talked to a local record store that said exactly what I thought and that the plate was accidentally changed when pressing. Anyway, just wanted to see if anyone else knows anything.

NB presses very bad records lately, warped, locking, skipping whatnot
Beware
