      I don't get this... My copy is identical, except from one thing. "Printed and made by Sleeverprint LTD Bedford" on the bottom left of the back sleeve. Not "Silverprint". I cant't find any entrys with Sleeveprint, all say Silverprint.

        in all post 2002 cd releases,the bonus tracks from radio 1 session,are mastered probably from a radio recorded cassette tape,the quality is a little bit lower (black metal miss a little bit of intro) than the ones appeared in 1992 "radio hell cd".the same quality version (but with overclipped mix) can be found also on cd 4 (assault series) of MMV cd

          29/11/2016 and 666 people have this? That's just too fucking real.



          Help me from this grave.

            I cannot find the "Black Metal" I have although I believe it must be among the ones already posted. It says Neat 1005, the vinyl is brownish and the B-side is the B-side from Welcome To Hell even though the track list is from Black Metal. But it doesn't match any of the "Neat 1005" posted. Can someone help me?
