I'll start - Somberlain "ultimate" reissue because it includes all the demo/7" stuff and because I like Dissection.

The Stooge's Funhouse 180g remaster on Rhino's pretty cool, too.

I think a good question to ask is what reissues don't sound like utter shit? For example, recently at a friend's house we played the first press of Riot's "Fire Down Under" lp and then put on the recent wax repress and the difference in sound quality was vast.

What represses actually improve upon the original or correct glitches, etc.?

Any represses people should stay away from?

Tormentor-Anno Domini and Seventh Day Of Doom: Long sold out, sounds great, looks great. Perfectly exeuted if you can get over the cost of shipping.


Pagan Altar-Mythical and Magical: Superior to the original in every aspect. Classic release that is also not readily available.

Mayhem-DMDS ADP version: Ultimate version of the ultimate bm album.


One of the keys for me i concerning re-issues is that the album needs to be hard to get. Why shell out 25 for a re-issue if I can go get an original for less???

Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab's reissues of pretty much anything.

I have some Dead Can Dance and Sisters Of Mercy records from MoFi. They all sound incredible.

One of my biggest pet peeves is when labels tack on completely useless live bonus tracks to reissues which A) decreases the quality of the audio due to more space on each side being used B) unnecessarily raises the price C) screws up album continuity (for those who are already well familiar with the release). If they add demo/ep tracks or unreleased bonus songs from the same era that's ok, however.

I must be the only one who thinks the ADP version of De Mysteriis is atrocious. It's a typical example of cramming everything a person can come up with relating to a release in one pile without any consideration for presentation (layout, typefaces etc.). The content is good but I'd much rather have a facsimile type of reissue.

Are there any other decent reissues of this out there?

I am postive that ALOT of thought and consideration went into that reissue - so yeah you are pretty alone on that one I think

I would maintain that effort was put in collecting material for the reissue, not too much into how it was put together (or it there was, poor judgement was exercised in the process).

I think it is the best DMDS edition out there, I really like the extra booklet even if I'm not the biggest fan of luxurious editions. However it is a shame it is so limited, I think an identical repress would be great. It would also drop the price of the original lp.

Hades' reissues are also really great, much better than the originals (I don't own them, but I was lucky enough to make a comparison). Necrobiosis LP is also mandatory, it's unbelievable how copies are still available (unless I am mistaken)

The Tormentor represses are indeed fantastic. For me it was worth the cost of shipping as "Anno Domini" is one my all-time fav bm records even though I own an original.

Good point about the price. I'm not sure why this is, but the prices of reissues are over the top. In some cases you can find an original in the used bins in decent shape for a few dollars. A reissue doesn't necessarily need to have all the bells and whistles. That's what makes some of these prices prohibitive.

I recall the first press of Marduk's "Those of the Unlight" sounding pretty bad. Anyone hear the repress? How does it compare?
