Parasite S/T EP LP Sweden 1984 Sword MLP 005 Swedish metal NWOBHM VG++/VG+
Parasite - S/T EP. Sweden 1984 Sword MLP 005
Classic Swedish metal band. They would have been a bigger band had this been released a few years earlier. Even though they were Swedish and this came out in 1984, this has a distinctly early 80's NWOBHM sound. The song "Nightwinds" is great; it would have been a classic of the genre.
Jacket: VG++. Super clean and glossy. Nice corners. Just the slightest bit of edge stress creases that are typical of these thin EU jackets of the time, and a little minor edge wear.
Vinyl: Would be NM, but a few concentric scratches on Lonely Eagle bring it down to VG+. The entire album has been play tested and plays great - these defects are not audible.
Sleeve: original lined plain inner sleeve.
Will be shipped in a "frustration-free" type LP mailer with extended edges to protect the record in transit from corner damage to the jacket.
!!COLLECTION LIQUIDATION SALE!!
Out of necessity, I am currently liquidating my entire collection of vinyl, CDs and music-related DVDs, spanning many genres including, but not limited to, metal, punk, new wave, indie and classic rock. This massive collection has been sourced by either buying brand new items, or paying special attention to used item condition. While there are many collectible items in this collection, the main focus of the collection is audiophile, and I have put intense research into sourcing these items so as to acquire the best sounding issue I could reasonably afford. In many cases the issue will be the best sounding copy of the recording in existence. As I did not have time to get around to actually listening to much of this collection, in most cases many of the newer items have been opened, but never played; so they are effectively in "as new" condition. All vinyl is visually graded as I don't have time to play grade a collection of this size.
Each listing will be started at a fair, competitive price (I don't compete with the big box sellers who usually provide poor item packaging to keep costs down). Each time the item is relisted (every 30 days), the item will be discounted 10%. Please do not contact me asking to negotiate the pricing of any item. Each item will be given a chance to sell at the asking price, then gradually discounted month by month until it sells. New items added daily until the entire collection is listed!
I am committed to accurate descriptions, transparency, and shipping your items fast and as protectively as costs will allow. All items are stored in a pet and smoke free home. All items stored correctly (LPs in poly-sleeves, vertically) and well-cared for.
LPs: All LP records will be shipped using a "frustration-free" type LP mailer with extended edges. I have a 100% success rate with these mailers. They are made out of heavy cardboard and their unique construction holds the LP firmly in place as well as protects the jacket from the corner dings and dents that are so prevalent as a result of using standard LP mailers. Please note that, by default, I do not remove records from their jackets before shipping as most customers do not want their records shipped in this way. If you wish to have your record(s) removed from the jacket before shipping (I can do this for new records as well if you agree to having the record opened), please notify me before shipping. If you do not inform me first that you would like your album shipped in this fashion, understand that SPLIT SEAMS MAY OCCUR from USPS mishandling. Please note that records made prior to 1970 are an exception, and are automatically shipped with the vinyl outside the jacket, unless you request otherwise. LP jackets are stored and shipped in poly sleeves.
45s: Heavy cardboard dedicated 45 mailer with one 7" cardboard insert.
CDs: CDs over $10 in value will be placed in a special cardboard box, then in a bubble mailer. CDs that use special packaging, such as digipaks, or card sleeves, will also be placed in a box mailer first, regardless of item value. Thick, deluxe edition type CDs will be mailed in a special protective mailer meant just for this type of item. Standard single jewel case CDs $10 and under will be mailed in a bubble mailer with cardboard protection. Please note, standard jewel cases are susceptible to damage that may occur during shipping. I highly recommend purchasing replacement CD jewel cases online; they are cheap and a necessity for anyone serious about collecting.
DVDs/Blu-rays: DVDs over $10 in value will be placed in a special box mailer specifically designed for mailing DVDs, then in a bubble mailer. DVDs that use special packaging, such as digipaks, will also be placed in a box mailer first, regardless of item value. DVDs/Blu-rays $10 and under that use standard cases will be mailed using a bubble mailer, with cardboard protection. Please note standard DVD/Blu-ray cases are susceptible to damage that may occur during shipping. I highly recommend purchasing replacement standard DVD/Blu-ray cases online; they are cheap and a necessity for anyone serious about collecting.
OTHER: Box sets, bulk orders or items with odd shapes and sizings will be given special attention and shipped in a dedicated fashion.

I ship worldwide, but customers in the following areas MUST purchase registered mail, regardless of item value: Mexico, Central America, South America, Italy, Russia, Africa, Turkey and Greece. Registered mail will be $13.95 in addition to regular postage. You will be invoiced for this amount through Paypal after your purchase. If you do not pay this invoice in a timely manner, I must cancel the transaction. If you live in the areas mentioned above and registered mail cannot be purchased for your locality, I must cancel the transaction.
Please note I can only ship to the Paypal address which appears in the shipping address section of your Paypal account. I cannot ship to any other address, even upon request. If your address has been entered incorrectly so as to make it not possible to ship to you using Paypal, you must modify the address before shipping. If either of these terms are not adhered to, I must cancel the transaction.
I only accept Paypal. Buy It Now items require immediate payment. I do combine shipping, but only on items of similar format and size (ie CD + CD, LP + LP, 45 + 45). If you wish to combine shipping, please purchase all items, including shipping, and within 24 hours I will issue you a refund for any difference between actual shipping and what you paid. If purchasing multiple items: before sending final payment, please make sure only items of similar format are in your cart, as only one unique tracking number per transaction (package) can be issued.
I do not accept returns, only due to the nature of the items I sell being primarily vinyl records, many of which are new, but unsealed. Please read all listings carefully and mouse over all pictures of the item to make sure of what you are buying. Of course, all buyers are always protected under eBay's policies. If you receive a damaged or defective item, or an item that you feel is not in the condition described, please e-mail me first before leaving feedback so that I can resolve the issue. I am committed to solving any problems you may have with any item you purchase from me, as well as going above and beyond to make sure my customers are happy.
If you need to reach me regarding an item or a purchase in progress, please do so through eBay (using the "contact seller" or "message" features). Messages sent this way are sent directly to my phone, which allows me to respond in a timely fashion. Please do not initiate contact with me by using my e-mail address through an e-mail program outside of eBay, as there may be a significant delay in getting back to you. You may also attach a note to any Paypal purchase you make.
