ONLY 1000 COPIES WERE PRESSED…SO THIS IS A BUY OR FUCK OFF AND DIE…TYPE OF SITUATION HERE. 

This CD and Medieval “Medieval & Medieval Kills” 2 on 1 CD are my prized items in my collection, because I was able to get these right from the hands of the labels right away. I actually pre-ordered the Medieval CD from Ann Boylen when she announced the news. For the Strappado Marquee Records, no info’s were put out until the CD was put out, so I did not cover it, here at kick*ass*metal, until I had my copy in hand. No use in telling the world, only to miss the opportunity myself.

This edition has flip-it artwork. Side 1 has the original artwork…and flip it a much more heavier and more metal artwork is presented for the 2012 deluxe edition. The artwork was done by Eric Rot. The color scheme is metal to the maximum, black and white.

Marquee Records re-edition. Executive Producer Credit. Armando Perna.

The only major disappointment is that Laurent Ramadier of the GODLY Snakepit Magazine did not get to do the liner notes…But  Leszek Wojnicz  Sianzecki from OLDSCHOOL METAL MANIAC MAGAZINE did a awesome job.

Strappado Deluxe is 6 titles spread over 2 disc.

I would love to see all 6 recordings in a 6 CD boxset.

Venom has a boxset MMV, and Tank has a boxset Dogs of War and Artillery has a boxset, Through the Years. Slaughter has a boxset Tortured Souls, but Slaughter needs a boxset AGAIN.

This needs to be in a 6 CD boxset but this 2 CD deluxe edition is a GODSEND for GODLY major rager kick*ass*metal.

KICK*ASS*METAL thanks Corey Farkas, of Dearborn Metal…ha ha, I mean Dearborn Music, for hunting this down for me. Since this is the MOST IMPORTANT heavy METAL death METAL reissue of 2012….

It has been a couple of years, since the last re-edition of Strappado. And only about a month since the last re-edition, THIS CD needs to be pressed at least once a year AT LEAST, so for the next edition, I would like to see everything go full circle and back to the way this title was for the 1987/ 1993 Fringe Records Edition..Cat # FPD3028
