Anyone else been noticing the absolute crushing devaluation of DW records in the after market? I'm not a flipper - I love film scores, especially horror scores...and the way that DW used to market everything (along with OWS, Mondo, etc) - it was buy it as fast as you possibly can before it sells out, then see if you actually like it. I fell victim to this marketing, and now looking back at my bulky score collection have thought about thinning some of it out and sticking with just the scores I truly love. I'm going to lose so much money trying to sell these off. What happened here? How did DW go from selling us really expensive film scores to us having a collection of worthless records?

i really like the artwork but its not worth to pay the overprice . specialy when you compare these mondo/death waltz pressings with the original pressings you will notice that the mondo deathwaltz sounds soo much worse compared to older used and dusty records .. if you are in for the sound of the record you should stay away from this ....

Very disappointed with the quality of the pressings lately.

I've bought a copy of the Beyond soundtrack, it had clicks and pops galore and was littered with hairline scratches (i've never seen such a beat up "mint" record before). I returned it and purchased it from another seller, only to receive a record that looked exactly the same (guess the whole batch must look like that), but there were much less clicks and pops, so i kept it.

Then i've bought the Lost Empire soundtrack, unfortunately there was a deep scratch on one side. Requested a refund.

Currently i'm at my third attempt to find a decent copy of the Maniac soundtrack. The first two had clicks/pops and were very noisy, one of them was warped so bad that Side A didn't even touch the platter (blue vinyl).
Just finished skipping through the third copy (red vinyl), which had me moaning like Frank Zito in the intro, because it wasn't any better than the previous two, and on top of that also had a humming sound in the background, that lasted for the entire length of the record. Fantastic.*

I'm aware that Death Waltz isn't fully to blame here, they don't press the records themselves. The aforementioned records were all pressed by GZ Media, but there are problems with other pressing plants too (i.e. Rainbo Records, see reviews of the Twin Peaks reissue).

At the end of the day, a record label is only as good as the pressing plant that presses their records.
Great remasterings/artwork/colored vinyl etc. is like putting lipstick on a pig, when the pressing job is botched by hacks.

*Edit: 4th copy, still no luck, occasional clicks/pops and surface noise, buzzing sound in the right channel (i'm starting to think that this is present on all copies, and i just didn't notice it while skipping through the first two without headphones, i also heard that buzzing in soundclips online). With that said, i'm thinking about keeping this copy, because it's the first one without loud pops that occur with every rotation. I guess that's as good as GZ Media gets at pressing records these days. It's a shame that this wasn't manufactured by a better pressing plant, aside from clicks/pops/noise/buzzing it doesn't sound bad.

Huge fan of Deathwaltz and have been buying their releases for a couple of years now. My bank balance is not such a fan, but I'm sure it'll get over it! :) Keep up the good work!

Sadly Death Waltz has gone down the pan as I expected after the Mondo merger, but it seems if you complain about their release policies and having to pay £50+ for something you want on eBay they just give you shit. Still, they have enough people interested now not to care about those people who supported them on the way up. Cheers for nothing DW.

I agree wholeheartedly. This is a label that is run by people who care about format and aesthetics, and one of my favourites. Long may death waltz reign in blood!!

A label that manages the delicate balance between tasteful and taste-making... especially when one considers that they deal almost exclusively in the soundtracks to 'video nasties'!

I've heard some harsh words here and there, but time and time again their dedication to customer service has been demonstrated to me.
