Hey

I was wondering if anyone else has seen something like these? I mean I just think why and how would people spent so much on one or few albums? like 700€ to get music? seriously.. for example

Totally agree!

Good point, yes.

MasterDeath's picture

Nicely put!

Blood Music are specialised in offering releases for horrendous ridiculous prices. Sorry , but fuck them.

SmirG3l's picture

I love the fact people ask for hundres of Euros for the album itself then you still need to pay for shipping.. like "here's this album for 1000€ and you pay 20€ for shipping!" right..like the 1000€ isn't enough for you to pay something like 10-30€ shipping.. jeez..

I think CD's costing 18 euros a piece now is ridiculous

Wouldn't even bother with that Emperor boxset. Emperor just fucking sucks after In the Nightside Eclipse

pan_in_ithyphallic_mirth's picture

You know thats something anybody could say. In fact thats about all I ever hear anyone say.

Frankly the only Emperor I like is Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk

emperialmassacre's picture

ALL Emperor albums/demo/EPs are masterpieces. Don't give a fuck what anyone thinks about Prometheus or IX Equilibrium.

LAst year a 10" vinyl record got sold for about 6500 euro. JUDGE; Chunk king can suck it. Most expensive hardcore record ever i think.

humus's picture

There's a Belgian guy who has it. Held it in my hands a few years ago. He looked concerned when I was holding it hehe.

longe666's picture

Seriously? I havent seen any Belgian on the list of the lucky 110. You sure it wasnt the boot? I have the boot aswell.

humus's picture

He's on the list. Think the record was in mint condition too.

longe666's picture

whats that guys name? does he play in a band?

Panthorder's picture

Once in discogs was Dust angel To to dust you will decay cd at 500e price, hahaa! it must be official 1:st press, BUT still insane price!

Also Morbid saint Spectrum of death 1:st cd press: https://www.discogs.com/Morbid-Saint-Spectrum-Of-Death/release/3346088 352 euros, hahaha!

imfan1975's picture

lol how about this guy -
https://www.discogs.com/sell/release/1174225?ev=rb

This CD got re released not too long ago and he's trying to get this much for a 1st press? lol

MasterDeath's picture

He probably gave the wrong info. Slovenia changed its currency from tolar to euro in 2007.
Therefore: 700 SIT = 2.92 € haha

Der Todesking's picture

Lmfao!! :D

Zixul's picture

when reading the description - *COMBINED SHIPPING discount available – SAVE £5 on each additional item!*

there is also the option to make an offer, I wonder what they will say when I offer a hundred bucks, instead of 66+K....ffs....

Der Todesking's picture

You probably won't even get an answer.

parregeaboppe's picture

Well I must admit that for a collector's item I'm willing to pay a little extra, because if its your hobby its not weird to pay allot of money for something extremely valauble. But there are limits for sure, like this one, this is just inhumane:

https://www.discogs.com/sell/release/463014?ev=rb

SmirG3l's picture

I like that there's guy with 0 rating selling album for 2K..seems legit right? I sure as hell wouldn't buy anything from guy who's selling item over 100€ with 0 rating..

parregeaboppe's picture

Totally agreed, untill now only had good exchanges on Discogs but I only buy from good rated sellers ofcourse

NordicNoseBleed's picture

Holy fuck that's insane.

Zixul's picture

you've probably already seen this one:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/BATHORY-Bathory-YELLOW-GOAT-12-vinyl-album-LP-1s...

yes its the yellow G with lyrics, anyway...

NordicNoseBleed's picture

Unsold... Haha good

NordicNoseBleed's picture

I've got alot of these vinyls and cds that cost hundreds or thousands and so glad I paid no where near that.
It's annoying that people want so much for vinyl when they've been used or have seam splits or creases or crackles during playing.
this is even more insane. The price for a 7" with 2 songs...despite it being the first Iron Maiden... that's NO excuse.

"It's annoying that people want so much for vinyl when they've been used or have seam splits or creases or crackles during playing."

actually that was one reason I quit collecting vinyl completely. Usually when I bought vinyl as new meaning factory sealed it would be warped or have some sort of physical damage in the vinyl causing playback issues I didn't bother to ask refund or return item because they were all bought from another countries. I suppose I could blame myself for that but whatever. When buying used vinyl something like 2-5 year old stuff it usually starts to cost aroung 30-100€ in price while CD is 5-20€ at the tops.. I remember buying Summoning vinyl used from discogs for 100€ or 150€ if I remember correctly then someone commented there that he bought 4 Summoning vinyls first presses and all of them have crackling issue no matter how he would try to clean them.. so in my opinion the cost and quality ratio on most vinyl releases aren't worth it. idk it just pissed me off too much to buy 20-30€ then when it finally arrives as factory sealed they use cheap inner sleeves which cause scratches to the vinyl even before you play it.. fun.

One the the best ones : https://www.discogs.com/sell/item/251971676
Ανασα σταχτη was an awesome Greek hardcore/crust punk band (if you are a fan of this music you should definitely chech them out). This is their only album, and is considered an underground gem that every collector wants to have. Because Ανασα σταχτη was a DIY band, ( "This record has been released completely indepently and it's a product of friendship, cooperation, will and and attempt of self-organizing our need of expression and creation" ) very few copies are availble today, and always sell for ridiculous prices. I fucking HATE scums that try to exploit the name of some cult bands of the past by selling their music for absurd prices. I really hope that it could be properly re-released, so all these leaches could stick their fucking ripoff prices up their greedy asses.

Der Todesking's picture

They probably still would sell for high prices, even with the rerelease! You know some ppl want the original first pressing (nothing wrong with that ofc!)....

Nater90's picture

Damn some of them prices are insane!!!!

I mostly collect CDs because the bands benefit from the sales, I buy second hand stuff now and then if it's the only thing available, Same with patches, Cancer - Death Shall Rise is a must have Death Metal album for me, But I'm not willing to pay over $300 when they don't get some part of that to put into future projects! People are just greedy and think people are willing to sell their soul to have those particular pieces so everyone thinks their top shit! Fuck that I say, I bought all three Bolt Thrower t shirts from the cancelled Australian tour when Martin died, His family gets the money, I respect that, I'm not pay over $100 or more for a shirt someone got in the 90s that Bolt Thrower doesn't get the benefit off.

I'd rather pay a price I'm happy with, be able to pay my bills each month and have food in my belly then give someone my hard earned cash because their trying to make a quick buck off some gullible person thinking it's kvlt as fuck!

meaningless's picture

the latest - crazy shit i saw, where in a Mail from Discogs. a Top-10 about the highest priced - SOLD items from Month July/2017 ....Emperor album Box for 3000+ $ (DOLLAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)...i mean..wtf..hahahahaha

With the high-prices....there are always 2 sides for me...
a) PPL will ask for incredible prices...totaly non realistic prices....looks high, but no1 buys
b) PPL will ask for incredible prices....BUT PPL PAY it..

...a) ...sure every1 can TRY ....but b) god damn..rly? :P

Even if i would have 5000 Euro every month, to throw it out of the window....i would NOT buy a single CD for 200-300 Euro (not to talk about 1000+) ..maybe i would be rich..yes, but still not stupid....sorry

Der Todesking's picture

Absolutely! It's ridiculous!! And the thing is - ppl see the high prices & think "Hey if this guy is taking that much, I will too!" & this whole thing spreads like a plague!! Sucks!

Fatal Agent's picture

Finding stuff that was affordable months (not even talking about years) ago which is being sold now for insane sums isn't even funny anymore.

meaningless's picture

yep...so true...

meaningless's picture

well said...and all these greedy bitches...makes me rly sad....

Ravishing Grimness's picture

Discogs is ok.for its prices coming to cd's.The only fact remains the high shipping due it has to come from different countries.I bought a Sisters of Mercy lp some weeks back for only 10 bucks.Floodland is really a suggestion for the ones who love this sort of style.

doomwatcher's picture

If you can, buy out of print records as MP3s as there's a chance the artists will still receive royalties from that.

I'm not against collecting anything and I find the machanisms behind price inflation as interesting as they are terrible, BUT - if someone can afford paying hundreds of $$ for an album and then they don't buy the same thing new TOO in order to support the artists, they are just douchebags.

Jen Gruesome's picture

Found this little collectable the other day on eBay - I like the fact that the guy who is selling is has the cassette's back story and general advice about collecting along with it - but I scoffed hard at the insane price he is asking for it.

https://www.ebay.ca/itm/TORMENTOR-pre-KREATOR-END-OF-THE-WORLD-DEMO-1984...

Nater90's picture

Amazing piece of history no doubt, But fuck paying that for ONE cassette, if I paid that I'd want Kreator to come to my house and play the demo in full haha.

humus's picture

That guy has been trying to sell those for atleast 5 years. This is probably the 300th time that he has relisted all those overpriced items.

Nater90's picture

Doesn't surprise me mate, Stupid shit.

sandmanforce's picture

I think sometimes must be pay for a rare record high price. Maybe wait for some records for ages but not will be catch for low price...I am often pay high prices some item just will be in great condition...When the time is running the prices will be too high...unfortunatelly.

doomwatcher's picture

Reassuring to know that "I send by Priority Mail", which is insured up to a whopping $50 (fifty). This actually needs to be expedited if it ever sells at a figure even remotely in the area of $150,000.

chainsawrentalshop's picture

If someone is crazy enough to pay this price, he'll fly to the States and pick it up at the sellers home;-)

Corvus Corax's picture

@chainsaw Ha ha! Right?

Also to note; the seller has no feedback. They didn't even picture it without the protective sleeve off. They're missing the cover.

They have a reissue available for fairly cheap. What a fucking knob. Nobody'll pay that much.

doomwatcher's picture

@chainsaw, no, that would be much more risky actually, unless there's a lawyer/ notary or at least some witnesses present. Purchases in that price region (fine arts, antiquities etc) should be documented more carefully than just a Discogs order number.

Zixul's picture

here's an interesting one https://www.discogs.com/sell/item/473577369 - 1 feedback seller for 3K, non merci! :D

Nater90's picture
