All of the classic Mercyful Fate/King Diamond albums need a reissue, going for ridiculous prices online.

be careful what you wish, the reason for the high cost of the originals is the sonic butchering roadrunner inflicted on the Mercyful Fate back catalogue while reissuing it in 1997.

the "remastering" campaign just made everything louder and unlistenable. in fact roadrunner just boosted the volume on all their catalogue that year, everything down to DR6-8. ruined so many albums.

The first two albums by Finland's Eternal Tears of Sorrow namely Sinner's Serenade and Vilda Mánnu. Well worth exposing both to a new audience even if they lurk somewhat in the shade compared to their latter works.

Pure Fucking Armageddon could do with a decent reissue. Not their best release, still most fans have some poxy version or other.

The 2014 LP re-issue seems decent?

i'm not sure of the mastering origin on that, but i did get the metal blade cirith ungol of frost and fire reissue and was disappointed as it appeared to be the cd remaster transferred to vinyl.

The first two albums by and Oceans (The Dynamic Gallery of Thoughts as well as The Symmetry of I the Circle of O). Released circa two decades ago on Seasons of Mist. Surely some worth in exposing to a new audience? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Brp3ILBfZYg

Carbonized: For the security (1991)

Has this ever been reissued? Grindcore/punk/death..great sound as far as these earlier releases go.
