I would like to get the cd version of this album, I already the vinyl, which was bought when it came out. I checked discogs and I realized that the matrix doesn't have any ifpi code or some other detail that made the cd difficult to reproduce. I know these Drowned cd's were bootlegged in large quantity in Spain some years ago (we all know who did that I think) and they look identical to the original, here I wanna ask the experts if there is a way to recognize an original Necrophiliac cd produced in the early 90's from this infamous bootleg. Thanks.

Mine has a MYD2...DC005 matrix-number. Bought long before the bootlegs (hope so at least).

It seems like it's virtually impossible to distinguish a bootleg from a real one.
It's just sad when somebody who used to be fairly important in the scene years ago ends up doing this to get some money. Thanks

I have to dig mine out to check now.

I can't understand why this classic hasn't been re-issued.

Yeah, a re-issue is very needed.

I've come across three different pressings of the cd:

The first two share the same matrix-code:
MYD2<488>DC005 14
The third one (which I happen to own) is the austrian pressing with the dadc matrix:
DC 005 14 B3 MASTERED BY DADC AUSTRIA
The second and the third version are legit as far as I know and I do believe that the first one is a bootleg (although going for the yellow printing might be too obvious...).
Can anyone confirm this?

Is there any chance you could also post a pic of the matrix codes, at least of the first two versions? Thanks!

Sorry, I only have the third (austrian) version on my hands.
(I can still post a pic of it if you want nonetheless.)
Maybe someone else can dig up his spanish pressing and scan it?

Yes thanks!
I was just wondering if the font of the matrix of the bootleg cd is the same as the one posted on discogs for the Demigod bootleg cd.
Too bad "somebody" bootlegged these great releases.

If you mean this

no, Necrophiliac 1st version matrix fonts are differents.
They are very real, in the best old tradition. No shitting fonts.
Sorry I can't do a scan (my printing unit is broken)

Yes, I meant that bootleg.
Finally we clarified this matter.
I need this Necrophiliac cd and now I know how to recognize a real one.

Btw, I doubt first version is a real bootleg.
Got it some years ago from a reliable spanish guy who is in the scene from ages.
In additional those matrix fonts are really old fashioned, not as nowadays scamming ones.

You're probably right about the first one. This is the one that pops up on ebay most of the time and I always thought it looked kinda fishy.

In conclusion: There are most likely three different legitimate pressings of "Chaopula". One of the Spanish pressings got bootlegged in the same way the "Slumber"-bootleg was done; identifiable through a different matrix font.

(So, it's true that there's a legit pressing of Demigod's "Slumber" with the 02 matrix after all and that's the one that got bootlegged with a different matrix font, different barcode font and slight changes in the background of the backcover, right?)

Here's a scan of the Austrian matrix of "Chaopula" next to the Austrian pressing of "Slumber" just for the heck of it...:
