Notes:
There are many variations of this record and it is unknown which versions are first presses. The variations are described below. This list is not complete.

Part I: Earliest presses.
The earliest presses have clearly printed labels, about 130 gram vinyl, and two jacket variations:
1. Fuchsia bricks on front
2. Dark purple bricks on front with fuchsia "Misfits Wolfs Blood" on back. These jackets have a rough texture compared to later copies.

All vinyl in paper sleeves. The following colors exist:
A. in Fuchsia-bricked jackets:
1. Opaque black
2. Smokey black
3. Blueish purple
4. Purple
5. Magenta
6. Pink
7. Clear

B. in dark purple-bricked jackets
1. Opaque black
2. Green w/black swirls
3. Green
4. Green w/yellow swirls
5. Yellow
6. Orange (may be aged yellow, some copies have decomposed)
7. Brown (may be aged yellow, some copies have decomposed)

Part 2:
S-presses. These copies have an S with a number, such as S9 or S10, in the matrix to identify the stamper used. These presses were issued in clear plastic inner sleeves. There is contention to whether these copies are 1st presses or a second press from 1985.

1. Ghoul hair error. Often found in the S9/S9 copies. Most have a white mark on the bottom left side of the jacket. The purple on the front cover is a gradient from light to dark.

2. S9/ S10 9 (10 is scratched out)
3. S10
4. S10/S11
5. S11
6. S11/S12
7. S13
8. S15/S13

Part 3:
Later large ringed presses.
These copies are on thick black vinyl that is actually minutely translucent.
The jackets are smooth, without the texture of the earlier presses.
There are three variations:
1. Medium purple brick jacket w/ghoul hair and plastic sleeve.
2. Medium purple brick jacket and plastic sleeve.
3. Dark purple brick jacket with heavy 170 gram vinyl

Part 4:
M-presses. These presses have an M2 or M3 in the deadwax to identify stamper. The vinyl is thin and translucent (not smokey, but very few have swirls). These are considered to have been pressed by Caroline. It is logical to assume that the earliest used the remaining Plan 9 jackets with light purple bricks (see 1. below).

1. Medium purple jacket, light translucent vinyl, S̶̷M3 S̶̷ on a-side and M3 on b-side.

2. Light purple bricks. Glossy Plan 9 jacket with no Caroline logo. S̶̷M3 S̶̷ on a-side and M2 on b-side. MisfitsCentral identifies this as a first pressing, but that is likely incorrect.

3. Same jacket as above, but matrix is:
PL-902-A MASTERDISK EDP M2
PL-902-B MASTERDISK EDP M3

5. All subsequent pressings have no barcode, and either an M2 or M3 in the matrix. The jackets are matte
with dark purple bricks. The Caroline logo appears in on the bottom left side of the jacket, under the Plan 9 logo.

6. Labels the switch from Hell-bent to Evilive.
3. Some pressings have slash marks in the matrix such as:
PL-902-B''' MASTERDISK EDP M2

Part 5:
Pressings from the early 1990s have barcode on the back of jacket. Vinyl is thick and opaque with S-25487 in matrix, meaning they were pressed at Rainbo Records. There are a number of jacket variations such as:
1. Purple text on back - ghoul hair error
2. White and purple text on back
3. White outlined purple text on back
4. Green and black rectangles on front cover
5. Most recent press on 180 gram vinyl

The pressing info on these is absurd . I have a copy with the PL9-02 / MASTERDISK EDP Stamps , with etched S10 (A Side) / PL9-02/ MASTERDISK EDP Stamps, with etched S12 (B Side)
Small ring around spindle hole. Lightly Transparent Black Vinyl . 135 grams. No barcode. No mention of Caroline . And here I thought identifying Beatles albums was difficult. What a mess . Haha!?!

Hello, I have a copy as described above, but in matrix appears also M2 in both sides. Can someone confirm that it is the same edition?

Thanks to whoever did the work on this release, great info! I have this press and can add that is sounds very tinny. There is no low end in the music.

Does anyone know the exact year of this reedition? (And what a stupid thing that "at least 10 words"! Come one discogs! Really??)

The appropriate shade of PURPLE does not seem to process through most digital cameras or display correctly on most monitors or display screens. Physical copies appear to present a far darker shade of PURPLE. The central "demon" between pillars has a lighter shade of frayed hair blending into the "crypt's" gates surrounding his solid printed "devil lock".

For those who also own this release, am I the only one who thinks it sounds extremely bright? I had to lower the treble from what I usually have it set because the treble on this album is ear piercing.

Why does it say "Pressed on thin, translucent charcoal brown vinyl. Initial pressing of 10000 copies on black vinyl."?!
Which one is it?
