About NB and their different regional companies:

Nuclear Blast Europe – Label, Mailorder, Wholesale, Fulfilment Service and Distribution for several labels spread over the whole European continent. Placed in Donzdorf, Germany.

Nuclear Blast America – US Company with identical business tasks in cooperation with Century Media.

A typical Nuclear Blast catalogue number has the following format: "NB XXXX-F".

Note: Earlier releases might only have 3 digits.

F determines the format. This is not always consistent, but here is a general idea of what you might find:
-0 limited first edition (Digipak, O-Card, etc.) for both CD and DVD
-1 LP or other vinyl format
-2 jewelcase CD or promo CD, DVD, sometimes also used for the limited first edition
-3 video tape (VHS), now out of use
-4 tape (MC), now out of use
-5 box sets, limited mailorder editions, bonus CDs and DVDs (in general: limited bonus editions)
-7 some vinyl 7”s carry this as format
-8 shape CDs (not all, however)
-9 picture vinyl (not all, however, esp. when the release was only available as a picture vinyl or comes with a cover, you may find a –1 here)

ltd ltd ltd, blah blah blah. Sorry, but I call BS. Unless the label (Nuclear Blast) is willing to tell us factual pressing numbers on their releases, none of this so called 'limited' edition crap is actually limited. This reeks of marketing hype.
