So, I'm just curious to see if anyone here has the Cargo Records reissues of Deicide's "Once Upon the Cross" and "Serpents of the Light" records and can tell me anything about their sound and quality?

I'd really really like to have a copy of "Once Upon The Cross" on vinyl, I love that album and I'm seeing the reissues all over the place now.

Are they good quality releases? Can anybody comment?

thanks!!!

Great sound, and 2-day FedEx from Amazon rules. Although the OUtC reissue does NOT have the dissected jewsus painting on the insert as on the original pressing, unfortunately.

Serpents of the Light comes with a poster too.

awesome, sick. Then I'm definitely going to pick them up.

I think "Once Upon the Cross" is an under-rated album; sure, its no Legion, but I like it a lot because they were able to work in a lot of nifty musical technical stuff into a more groovy, heavier sound. Its like a more bludgeoning Deicide, rather than the blazing spit-fire Deicide of the first 2.

And Serpents was the last thing they ever did that was worth listening to, and the title track is awesome, so... yeah. haha

i've got a few of the cargo reissues and soundwise they are excellent but packaging leave much to be desired. it seems the layout are taken from the last roadrunner cd reissues so expect uneven pictures resize, typo, lettering misallignment etc...

No one needs a repress of "Serpents of the Light" as long as no one wants to buy my CD version of this turd.

I believe that Serpents is a vinyl debut, and Once Upon the Cross is a repress.

They really need to do a Legion repress, though; that album is nowhere to be found except insanely-priced picture disc versions on ebay....

Im not a huge fan of the album, sans a couple tracks... but I think it has what is possibly the best production of any death metal album.

There's a copy of the regular LP on ebay right now for £50...quite ridiculous. I'd pay a fair bit for copy of Legion on vinyl, but not that much. Then again I'd rather pay for that than some dubious repress with typos etc like have been mentioned in this thread.

haha, actually i could have answered my own question!!! I didn't realize that the copy of "Deicide" that I have is the Cargo records repress.

Yeah.... ummm... big failure on that packaging, holy shit. The cover is fine, and the printed jacket is fine and has the lyrics... except that it has this fucking essay from Lords of Chaos that is printed twice, or 3 times... I'm not exactly sure, because the paragraph divisions change every time, lol. Or maybe its 1.5 times, because it seems like it cuts off at the bottom of the left column.

Its a cool read, but the printing was totally goofed. Everything else is fine though. I'm listening to the album right now actually, and it sounds great.

Does anybody know if this is actually a remastered version of the original album, or is this the same exact audio? (i'm talking about the debut)

I would imagine they used the remastered CD for the source.

Thanks for the reminder, because this

is still valid.

I would also throw that other dust-collecting garbage CD Immortal "Blizzard Beasts" on top of it to complete the package.

PM if interested: (West-)Europeans only, Swiss preferred.
