Another name for DavesMetal

Recommended Posts

'metalslaves' is another DavesMetal I.D. I've seen posts on this clown before but I didnt know it was him, until I saw the Paypal email address...


He advertises items as 'New' & 'Sealed', both of which are bollocks. He also packages so piss-poorly that the CD's get badly damaged in transit, & he takes 3 weeks to ship from the U.S to the U.K. :screwy:


He has a great RETURNS policy which fills you with confidence, until you actually email him & he never responds. He has managed to go a full month now without any Neg Feedback (despite a poor overall feedback record), but that is all about to change for this loser.

I've picked up 2 cds from him over the last year and I had no problems but maybe I was lucky....I knew it was davesmetal when I bid and I knew I was taking a chance because of previous bad experiences but I figured maybe he had reformed...and I really wanted the cds....He's definitely a seller to be wary of....

Never dealt with Dave before, but had read about him here.

I ordered a CD from Metalslaves a few weeks ago, and recieved it fine (it took about 2 weeks).


Only issue I can see with him is that the CD I bought was Wrathchild - Trash queens, which to my knowledge has never been on CD, so I bid on it assuming its a boot.

Nowhere in the auction did it mention it was not an official release, which to those not in the know, might be seen as deception.


Its actually a pretty good copy though, silver pressed and all, so I am happy as I got something better than I personally expected.

To be fair to him he has partially tried to resolve issues, but it still isn't worth the hassle.


One thing I've noticed from various discussions/observations, is that it's often better to lose auctions to some U.S eBay powersellers, as you'll more likely than not be offered the item (which they always have in multiples) for the price you bid as a 'second chance'. During conversation with an auction winner, pleased to have received a fairly rare item for a decent price, he was not quite so happy when he found out I was offered the same item as a 'second chance' for $12 less! After further investigation this seems a fairly common practice...


The motto being, decide what you think an item is worth & stick to that price. If you get outbid, so be it. You never know...

    • Nice. I have absolutely no idea.  Iron Maiden / The Lord's Prayer reference... Bruce?

    • STAR is out now on bandcamp and for 24hrs only, it's free, or "name your price"! so if you want it go grab it.  As for the song it's more LeBrock Awesomeness with a killer solo from McRocklin. lebrock.bandcamp.com/track/star-feat-mcrocklin
    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music is thrilled to announce the signing of Powell-Payne a dynamic four-piece band hailing from West Wales, United Kingdom! Formed by founding members Mark ""Penfold"" Powell (ex-drummer of Psycho Kiss) and Adam Payne (former vocalist of Airrace) in 2022, Powell-Payne's journey began with a single goal - to create a heartfelt song dedicated to their lost loved ones. Joined by their dear friends Adam Davies on guitar and Steve Leyshon on keyboards, Powell-Payne quickly realised the magic of their collaboration and decided to embark on a full album project together. Expanding their lineup to include the exceptional talents of Aydan Watkins on guitar and Alex Anderson on bass guitar, Powell-Payne is ready to rock the world with their electrifying sound!

    • These guys can be found with the silver bells and cockleshells.
    • From the KC FB page: Kingdom Come is excited to announce a 'Return to the Kingdom'   Kingdom Come will be kicking off 2024 with a new lineup, management, a new album, and a brand-new tour, starting March 15th at The Lamp Theatre in Irwin, PA. And the following night, March 16th, we will be in Lakewood, OH, at Mercury Music Lounge.  Two new band members will be joining our lineup. Veteran touring drummer Matt Muckle (Paul Gilbert, Lynch Mob) will be taking over drums for our dear recently-departed brother, James Kottak. And we're introducing the incredible Ezekiel Kaplan as our new vocalist.  We hope to see you all in March, and out on the road this year, as we 'Return to the Kingdom' to continue the legacy of Kingdom Come!  👑 https://kingdomcomerockband.com  
    • I think it's the other way around.  Still it's a very hooky album. I often thought a song doesn't necessarily have to end at 3:00 minutes. The endings are too abrupt sometimes.
