Proper vinyl mastering is a lost art nowadays, and it's rather expensive. Do you honestly think Drakkar (who are much more interested in make you waste your money on their products instead of wasting theirs in offering quality records) would actually bother with having someone do a proper mastering for such records? Most pressing plants offer in-house mastering nowadays, and it's much cheaper than having a pro do that for you. Which option do you think Drakkar would choose?

yeah I'm totally aware this was a cash grab move with no real passion behind it. as the consumer here, I'm just trying to determine if the tape is as quiet and bland sounding as the vinyl or what (and if it is, then its best on tape anyhow) my motive is to potentially obtain these tapes instead and get rid of the LP versions elsewhere. if its worth while of course...

The black metal honor rulebook suggests that one would take the high road and do the choice that offers the best end result, so when the customer gets their album they can play it loud and perfect (in the tiny aparment or basement when mom's not home) on their little bookshelf stereo turntable with tiny abused speakers and then come to the forums and try to argue sound quality.

It is all perfectly sensible.

hahaha how presumptuous...

you're probably onto something though, as I bet my downstairs neighbor would prefer I keep the quieter LP mix over anything else. I bet she would love it more if I actually invested in some speaker stands so I quit rattling her ceiling too Twisted Evil

The CD versions are more than enough for me, honestly. They sound good enough for me, anyway.

Some EQ work, a simple volume boost, and maybe some light noise reduction would have served some of this material well. We're talking about MAYBE an hours worth of work here. It has nothing to do with anything else, mother's basement be damned. Even on shitty speakers and played quietly, it would sound infinitely better. Same can be said for that live Volahn LP which is unlistenable because of the master being so quiet.

Is there any US (or Candanian) distro that still has the Vlad Tepes tapes in stock?

I never knew of any that did. Why not order directly from Drakkar? Their prices aren't unreasonable and they are reliable. No need to worry about tapes being shipped in pizza boxes Razz

Try writing Hells Headbangers and ask if they're going to restock. I got War Funeral March and March to the Black Holocaust on tape from them months ago.

Is anyone aware if there was ever any plans to rerelease the Vlad Tepes / Torgeist - Black Legions Metal split on vinyl? Seems strange that this hasn't been done yet given Drakkar went through the entire demo catalogue...

Posted by Drakkar @ Facebook.

Quote:
Vlad Tepes (r.i.p) statement :
After more than 15 years of hibernative supervision of what would eventually happen to our spawn Vlad Tepes, this project which was at the time meant to return to Darkness was in fact hardly sought after, some ready to spend hundreds for it, it spread like desease, thanks to the human nature and internet technology which instead of eradicating this testimony of the truth to come, just ran after it like insects after a too bright and burning light.
Well, Vlad Tepes will all the same return to Darkness, sooner or later, but now it is time for me to take back the inheritance I left uncultivated behind me, seed for many bootleggers trying to revive this once was Darkness (or their purse should I say)... I'm taking back all this, even if I have (and will) use the human tools available to me. I'm taking back what is mine, for the ones who would think they could own and distribute our Art were far worth doing it.
For all the ones still feeling worthy, after almost 20 years of wait, expecting, digging rumors, listening to and appreciating xxxth generations bootlegged copies of our work (what a shame), just stand still as your wait will soon come to an end for I will make our Black Legions Metal work Vlad Tepes available in its still unreleased true shape.
For that you'll assist to the spawn of a new tool of mine I named VarvLoar1476 through which all the future releases, with the precious help of Drakkar Productions, will unleash again all the despise of what Black Metal (r.i.p) has become, as foreseen 20 years ago ; finally the image of what the bigger part of humanity is, cancer of this earth, happy to get straight into the wall...
Some of you certainly wondered what was approved until now for label release, here it is :
War Funeral March 1st 1994 demo cassette with FullMoon prod. Limited to 1000.
Vlad Tepes/Blktre March to the Black Holocaust 1995 TE02 Split-CD with Embassy prod. Limited to 1000 hand-numbered copies.
War Funeral March 1996 TE03 MCD re-issue with Embassy prod. Limited to 500.
Torgeist/Vlad Tepes Black Legions Metal 1996 Split, DKCD02 + DKLP09 re-issues with Drakkar prod.
That's all ! Everything else you'll find is not approved and doesn't contain original material at all !
Our second demo Celtic Poetry was not sold, only traded or given. The same with our third demo Dans Notre Chute... . The same with our fourth and epitaph demo Morte Lune . It exists less than ten original copies of this last one which were only given, not traded (which owner didn't respect our will not to spread this at the time ? Anyway, this doesn't matter anymore today).
The same goes for our other intermediate works (The Return of the Unweeping I & II -this last one often wrongly called rehearsal '95 or '96 -, Into Frosty Madness, & Black Legions Metal cover demo -often wrongly called The Black Legions -).
Now Drakkar Productions, one and only and no other, has been given the right to distribute our works as they historically believed and truly supported us and our choices for 20 years. So the re-issues of March to the Black Holocaust & War Funeral March are approved as well.
Consider all the other early 2013 Drakkar releases as intermediate semi-official releases.
Of course, all of what is coming will be official and definitive, sourced and remixed/remastered from my own 4 tx master tapes, necessarily protected by human (and worldwide) laws as I don't have nuclear power under my finger to prevent from that. Nobody can put a copyright on Darkness, but on a fucking record, we can !
Don't search for bootlegs anymore, don't spend hundreds for shit anymore ! We'll make it simple for all of you seeking after us, there will finally be only one source for all Vlad Tepes material : Drakkar !

I'm wondering how to verify that this isn't just written by Drakkar himself.

Wasn't this stuff already re-released by Drakkar? I don't really get the point

As I understand this statement, the previous releases by Drakkar are considered "semi-official"... Just my wild guess, but could it be that the band got in touch with the label after the release of said records, and they eventually settled for an official deal? Either way, it's good news to have it all available in every format!
