Record Questions »  [SOLVED] Salem's Wych - Betrayer of Kings on legit CD?
I came across this overly priced CD on Ebay:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/SALEMS-WYCH-BET ... _500wt_949

It's Salem's Wych's Betrayer of Kings on CD -- which was originally never released as such to my knowledge.. however the backcover says Metal War Records which is the original right label.

Not that I would think of buying such item at that price anyway.. but by curiosity, does anyone happen to know if Metal War actually re-released this album on legit CD ever or is this (as i assume) a bootleg?

Thanks for your reply. I wasn't intending to buy this -- but was curious if it would happen to be legit release or bootleg. Well I've also tried to find info and cannot find a source that would claim that there was ever official CD release.

Only found info that the band would be re-releasing it on CD but don't know if it ever happened. Way or another $199 would be way too much for almost any CD release (or LP too for that matter). Smelling a big time rip-off on that guy's sale.

The Hot Metal issue is a boot.

They announced a official reissue in 2004, no idea if it ever was released though.
http://www.metalunderground.com/news/de ... ewsid=7123

Here's an interview:
http://www.metalpage.de/specials/interv ... u85l18igj1

And a archived page of their (now closed) webiste. No trace of a CD reissue from what I could find.

Yeah and their page seems to be down at least I cannot enter salemswych.com for some reason.

Hotmetal Records is boot far as I know, unfortunately I found out too late. I already have Emerald Steels' S/t CD coming on post releaser by Hot Metal.. (mad2)

which leads me to create another topic about boots. -->

The item's descreption says it's not original. This is a bootleg. The guy is very funny though, ''THIS IS PROBABLY THE RAREST THING ON EBAY????????????'' We just found ourselves a commedian... And where did he see this sold for 200 - 400 $??
Stay away from those greedy thieves. I would pay much to get a record i'd like but not a single cent for a bootleg.
Also all of these Hot Metal ''rarities'' are bootlegs. They gave these cds free with magazines etc... So stay away...
