Hopefully nobody was fooled into buying the Bathory picture discs that were apparently record store day "exclusives"?

A blatant marketing con, presumably by Plastic Head, as these were "old stock" of the 2007 "official" Black Mark picture disc releases.

As a huge Bathory fan and collector it really pisses me off that companies still try to cash-in on the Bathory name and memory, may you enter the eternal fire....

Disgusting, but I can't say I'm surprised.

Wow, really? Lame. Didn't bought them, but they were by far the most interesting out of all RSD releases for me.

This is actually funny. Good on the label for trying to shift some stock. If idiots bought them then it's their problem.

Actually it wasn't the record label, Black Mark, that were shifting them, it was one of the distros, presumably Plastic Head. So the label gained nothing from this rip-off either!!

That's pretty shitty. The UK RSD site originally listed Burzum pic-discs before removing them a week before the day itself. Sounds like these might have been the same deal.

Good on Plastic Head then! If they needed to shift some old stock and this was the best way then good for them. Would be funny to see crybabies getting upset about buying one of these.

I don't care about RSD, but i don't see anything "funny" about this. It's false advertising... And that's a pretty shitty road to take for any distro or label.

YES! Hopefully more distro will begin using deceptive marketing tactics to sell their stuff. This is exactly what the current metal scene needs. I see it as a win/win/win for fans, bands, and labels!
