Thanks to them, some lost gems of Thinking Man's Metal music that were lost have been reissued : Believer's Dimensions, Pestilence's Spheres, Artillery's By Inheritance, and a host of others... So, while you guys are at it, any plans for Coroner reissues (No More Color, Mental Vortex and Grin) ?  Been waiting for years for those reissues, especially since my original Noise Records copies were stolen.  Sacrifice reissues (Torment in Fire, Soldiers of Misfortune, Apocalypse Inside) ?

oh man, that would the greatest news in at least ten years. 'No more color' would need some serious remastering. And earlier stuff is good as well.
