Ok here's one for all you Mayhem experts out there, I just bought a copy of what I think is an original Live In leipzig press, all the seller stated was that it "was not an original press" now I know it isn't the first edition with the purple inner, but I'm just wondering is this the second press that came with the plain white inner sleeve? Or is it the recent boot from Painkiller? Is there any differences between the two or anything to identity the genuine over the fake? I didn't pay much for it so i guess it doesn't matter too much if it is a boot but I'd like to know either way, I'm just hoping the seller wasn't too clued up on what he was selling, which I don't think he was.

The thing is the inside of the sleeve doesn't look 'new' at all, slightly yellowed which i would guess at being due to age and the the cover looks a little to worn to be the bootleg which was pretty recent. the record itself has obviously been played quite a bit and doesn't look recent at all. The sleeve itself is pretty thick and not all like the shitty thin Satyricon Shadowthrone bootleg which I do have and iirc came out around the same time. The Only thing is the inner sleeve looks pretty new but that could easily have been replaced.

I've uploaded a few pics, which aren't great quality as my phone is really shitty and old and I've no camera handy. Any help greatly appreciated! (yeah the record is dusty and needs a clean)

As far as i know there was one original pressing of this record, in which some copies included the purple insert and some they didn't.I also own a later press by Hellion records, but i think that that one came 1-2 years later and it has obvious differences than the original.
Also the printing on the back cover on my copy is a little faded, don't know if all copies are like that, i just mentioned it.Can you post the Matrix codes of the vinyl ?

I do notice that on the copies of the bootleg on popsike, the logo seems slightly bluer and the pic of dead seems to have a higher contrast to the black cover if that counts for anything.

I have checked my copy and this one looks legit or a really well done bootleg

"The scene was dead, the scene is dead" is written on the original's spine. The bootleg version has "dead" mispelled as "desd".

Fucking A, congrats on the score! Poor seller, though. One would think you'd do some research before you throw it away for peanuts... Laughing

haha yeah, got it for 30. What made me take the plunge was he was selling a bunch of Darkthrone 1st presses along with it which he advertised as such and they sold for what was expected, and looking at the pic he posted I thought 'fuck it' and just put in a starting bid. Noone else bothered to bid Laughing
