Why does my A Holocaust In Your Head LP sound totally different that the re-issue CD? It's the original press and sounds slower a bit less heavier than the re-issue. Is the CD-version re-recorded or what? Im confused.

I only have the LP, so I canīt compare, but would be curious to know about this too !


EDIT: I remember reading something about this some time ago...
This is what Metal Archives says....

Quote:
The track listing varies with every remaster made for this CD, and they're
usually all wrong with the wrong song title on a different track than it should
be. Below is the correct track listing for the album.

The album was re-recorded for CD sometime later. The original recording is only
available on the 1989 vinyl edition

Damn. How did i miss that "The album was re-recorded..."-part earlier... Oh well, mystery solved.

But another weird thing is the tracklist. The tracklist on the LP is very different from this "correct track listing" and the first song before Deceived is called "Statement".

was asking myself the same question last year, this is the answer that I found:

There are 3 different versions of Holocaust

Version 1:

Phil Vane - Vocals
Dean Jones - Vocals
Pete Hurley - Guitar
Mark Gardener - Bass
Mick Harris - Drums
This version was never released because Mick Harris was thrown out of the band as soon as the recording was finished

Version 2:

Phil Vane - Vocals
Dean Jones - Vocals
Pete Hurley - Guitar
Mark Gardener - Bass
Stick - Drums
This version was released on Vinyl on Head Eruption Records

Version 3:

Phil Vane - Vocals
Dean Jones - Vocals
Pete Hurley - Guitar
Mark Bailey - Bass
Stick - Drums
The vinyl release was considered (by the band) to be a pretty poor recording plus in the mastering process the starts and ends of some of the songs got chopped Plus the recording wasn't owned by the band.
Toys Factory records wanted to release Holocaust on CD in Japan and so a deal was struck to re-record the whole album - Unfortunetly this didn't go quite to plan, the band found a studio in Ipswich to record at which was only going to cost about half of the money provided by Toys Factory - The rest of the money was spent on beer etc. The studio mainly recorded reggae and to put it mildly were fucking clueless when it came to recording crust - End result: No better than the previous version

Dean never misses a chance to make a few quid and later licensed this version to various labels for CD release in different countries

Hope that helps

You can tell the vinyl session from its Birdsong Studio sound (think "FETO", "Purity Delusion", "Thrash Night", etc) and the extra movie samples.

"Statement" is the intro track with some socio-political preaching over a drumbeat and guitar noise. It's not even on the cd version I have, although I have heard a version from that re-recorded session.

Does this mean, there is also a different recording-session on the Distortion Records LP-repress from 1999 ?

I definately prefer the recordings on the original release on Head eruption
