Hello, Nuclear Blast sell this CD massaker pack and I'm a bit confused. Does it include 10 CDs of its entire catalogue or a smaller range. Also, if anyone has purchased is it worth it?

Thank You

Hi there. What you'd get is indeed 10 randomly picked discs from their entire mailorder catalogue (not restricted to their own NB titles). To this day I don't really understand how one can seemingly prefer not to have any preferences when it comes to ordering albums. I'd rather do some tedious research to find and discover new bands according to certain guidelines I put up for myself. Must admit though that these may appear to be random in nature.

this is a neat way for labels and distros to get rid of undersellers... you won't get the new Amorphis in the pack or any new release... most probably bands who didn't make it, and possibly a coupla releases from "bigger" bands that didn't sell.

season of mist did a similar thing a while back, and it was discussed here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=102628
And every demon wants his pound of flesh, but I like to keep some things to myself.
