Rare EP, gave them away to friends. Rumors say only 100 have colored insert. Never saw one without. But as always, you'll never see everything.

Nah, read the description.

Your vinyl has color insert? Mine is plain white with no artwork at all, but then again, mine came directly from the band.

When did you buy it? As said it might be that there exist without insert, I only have never seen without insert. But again, one doesn't see this record on every corner.

I didn't buy it. My best friend's brother is Kirk, their drummer, so we were around the band quite a bit. I still keep in contact with Troy, lead guitarists.

Cool, why you don't ask him about the story of the non-insert and with insert examples. They all were promo releases in the end.

My guess is that it was cheaper. Every aspect of the album was funded by the band. They mainly sold albums either at their shows or local record stores. I have no idea how there got to be such a demand in Europe 30 years later. All of this came about when I found an unopened cassette when I was going through some boxes and sent a picture to Troy and he told me about the demand across the pond. I'm really hoping for a reunion, but won't probably happen any time soon. He's been quite busy with his newest band, The Dreaded Me.

Everything from the U.S. (Heavy Metal-wise) is considered better/more mature in Europe. And it's the truth. Not that Metal from Europe is bad, but U.S. Metal is better. Probably same of what I heard from Americans that they prefer European Metal. Must be a cultural thing.

It kinda blows my mind that a 30 year old album from a small Ohio city made it to Europe to begin with. It's a great album that I wish would have gotten more attention back in 1990. Unfortunately at that time in the US, hip hop was starting to take over.

Ah look, there are tons of U.S. bands that gain cult following in the European underground. But don't expect that they would sell out tours. It's a small amount of freaks and collectors that hunt down these things. And this then raises the price.
