Halloween -Plus The Videos For "The Family Ghost" "Welcome Home" "Sleepness Nights" Here's what the band's A&R Rep - Monte Connor - had to say about this release: "King Diamond peaked early in his career as a solo artist, but oh what a peak it was. An incredibly chilling, morbid, edge-of-your-seat concept album that sounds as cool and badass today as it did back in 1987. The level of musicianship is top notch throughout, especially in the guitar department, with the battling leads of Andy La Rocque and Michael Denner often grabbing the spotlight. The whole band sounds on fire and Roberto Falcao's reverb-drenched, 80's production suits the material perfectly. A must-have for any real metal fan. This was the first Roadrunner release to crack the Billboard Top 200 chart." ______________________ Coal Chamber - Coal Chamber (RR25 Anniversary Re-Release) CD/DVD SPECIAL EDITION CD includes 6 bonus tracks with expanded booklet and liner notes DVD contains unreleasd concert footage filmed early in the band's carreer Track listing: 1.

Loco (demo) Bonus DVD: -Includes 2 live concerts from 1996 and 1999 -Plus the video for "Loco" -And "Loco" recorded live at Ozzfest '96 Here's what the band's A&R Rep - Monte Connor - had to say about this release: "Ah, the ever controversial Coal Chamber. The controversy started because Coal Chamber were the very first band after Korn to come out with that then-distinctive nu metal sound. As much as they were maligned back in the day, it is ironic that now, some 500 nu metal bands later, Coal Chamber has had the last laugh because history has been kind to the band and they are now regarded as real innovators of that sound. Some of the songs here are still timeless, like 'Loco,' 'Big Truck,' 'Sway,' and 'Oddity.' Simply put, this was the right record at the right time and it really struck a nerve with the kids in a huge way."
