Damn
That’s right, people.

Roadrunner Records love to re-sell us things we all probably already have, what with the constant reissues and remasters and rereleases.

Now, the label will celebrate its 30-plus-year legacy with a four-CD boxed, spanning the broad spectrum of heavy music Roadrunner’s become known for releasing.

It’s going to be released October 1, and boasts 54 tracks spread across four discs, packaged in a deluxe fold-out paneled box, at a retail price of $39.98.

That’s not so expensive.
