yeah, they never reply to emails. but they're typical with zero standard deviation in their orders. safe and fast.

truth also is that some of their prices can be found also in my nearest drugstore.... :whistle:

Used to use them regularily when I was buying lotsa stuff from eBay a few years ago before I switch to Amazon as my main CD buying port of call, and had absolutely no problem with them.

Yup, I too stopped dealing with them years ago due to problems. Haven't regretted it either.

I don't have any problem with them. I don't email them either.

Same here. It's been a few years since I used them (due to $$$) but when I used to be able to buy CDs I used them quite frequently and never had an issue. But that said, I never emailed them either. Just ordered CDs and got them in a very timely manner. :)

Yeah, I've bought a couple things from them with no problems. It's just if you want to ask them a question about something you're shit out of luck, which makes absolutely no sense at all. Complete fucking idiots if you ask me...

I've bought several discs over the last few years from them and they came quickly and were all accurate. I've never had any need to communicate with them other than the actual ordering process.

Never had problems with them, but I haven't called them in years. I used to talk to Ryan's brother quite frequently...he was always very helpful. Sorry you're having issues with them.

I used to be able to get a response from Ryan at metal mayhem via email or call him, could chat on the phone for hours..., but somewhere along the line he totally quit responding to any form of communication.....I will say if I buy something from them either on ebay or their website they show up pretty fast....but I rarely do this anymore, I have been buying my stuff elsewhere.....this is too bad because Ryan is a good guy...... :(

Total idiot.- He selling bootlegs for $50-$60 & very difficult when replying to emails...

This may have been covered earlier, but what do you mean by this?

 

So Simple. For example : I'm interested in a X cd which costs $60. Then email the guy : blablabla is that the original? No response. Email again & again & again. After a few emails I got the answer. It's the "reissue". Of course there's no reissue out there just 3 bootleg versions. Email again for a few other rare cds (with a similar price) which I was afraid were bootlegs too. No response... Waste of time!

That sounds exactly like my experiences with them...except I usually gave up after a couple emails.

Emailing Metal Mayhem is a total waste of time, as useless as a eunech at a porno shoot. Used to buy some of their stuff off eBay and received everything pretty quickly, so no complaints there, but their communication skills are the worst in the melodic rock business.

Backed. I used to buy a fair bit from them but then when I had a problem & never got a response I decided not to bother with these type of 'buy them cheap, sell them fast' companies. Would rather pay a little bit more, get a CD in top condition (i.e, no broken case or damage), & get some half-decent customer service if things should go wrong...

Ryan is a loyal friend and great person ! Always fast shipping sometimes slow contact but he has other projects besides music . Metal Mayhem is a great company with some killer releases as we all know !! :guitbannana:

 

 

Just to clarify, he is not slow to respond, HE DOES NOT RESPOND! yes he has a main job he does, and other things, but if someone emails and asks if a certain cd is in stock, how long does it take to type a YES or NO?? I have alot going on too but it only takes me a second or two......no excuse to ignore emails from long time friends or potential customers....no excuse!

Simple answer, don't deal with them. Too many other reliable guys waiting to take their place. I had a small problem with a company a few years ago that I had dealt with on a regular basis (they simply did not process an order I had called in to the owner directly, then blamed me for not checking in sooner after it was not mailed for a month). I laughed over it, as no money was exchanged. I haven't missed a night of sleep since.

    • I try to give albums a proper go before I write them off. Closest I would say would be cats In Space Atlantis. Narnia was SO good that my expectations were extremely high and the album was average on first couple of listens. I let it go for a few months, then came back to it with anopen mind and loved it. Otherwise I can probably pick songs. God Of Thunder I didn't like for many many years and eventually it grew on me.  
    • I left this comment on the promo for "Flames," and I feel like it applies to every song I've heard from this project so far, too:  "Great song, great singer, but I feel like the compression of the production takes away from the quality of the songwriting and puts a damper on Ken's playing."
    • Vain, yes it's one band i never really got into it. Just last week I spent about 30 mins listening to their most popular songs, I dont know what it is but the songs dont do much for me. But i do like one of their songs a lot 'No tears for you', and Whisper is pretty good too. And a few I do like to some degree, that's about it. 
    • Listening to it now (I know I'm late)... Some starter notes, that have no doubt been mentioned here already, but I didn't read through the whole thread: -Production is overdone. I don't know why, when Tobias Lindell had done such a masterful job mixing their last few records, he would do this?  -I've always liked H.E.A.T better with Kenny than with Erik. Not because I think Kenny is a better singer by any stretch (though I do think Kenny's voice is underrated when comparisons of the two inevitably arise), but for the same reason I prefer Danger Danger with Ted Poley to Paul Laine. Kenny's voice is, to me, part of the sound of H.E.A.T and I felt like it was missing the longer Erik was the vocalist with the band, even though 3/4 of the records they did with him were phenomenal. -For the first time, I feel like H.E.A.T doesn't know where they're going. On previous records, there was a distinct direction they were clearly striving for -- the original self-titled album and Freedom Rock were clearly products of their influences and the albums that followed with Erik Gronwall showed the growth and maturity of their playing, songwriting and the budding production skills of Jonah Tee. But I can't figure out if Force Majeure is meant to be a step forward or a step back. I wouldn't go so far as to say that any of the songs are bad, but there's not a single banger present here, as far as I'm concerned, which I was not expecting. -I also feel like this is the first time you can really hear Eric Rivers's absence since he left the band after Tearing Down the Walls. Into the Great Unknown being an anomaly altogether guitar wise and H.E.A.T II being a phenomenal return to the stage for Dave Dalone, Force Majeure is the first time I've really thought to myself, "Man, there could really be another guitar track here," which might be why they felt the need to compensate with the over-the-top production?   All in all, is it bad? No, I wouldn't go that far. But as far as H.E.A.T albums go, it falls extremely short of the ridiculously high standard they've set for themselves over the course of their career.   But hey, it's better than Into the Great Unknown.
    • Yeah, a few times. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to all the hype. 
    • Ok the title was clickbait, first dislike and then later like would be more accurate but hey, you clicked on the topic, so it worked! 😬
    • As a few others mentioned, musically it isn't too far off from their early material, but the song itself doesn't do much for me unfortunately.   In watching the video it looks like they've got a new drummer.
    • White Lion's Big Game was a massive letdown after Pride but over the years it's grown on me. Cinderella's Heartbreak Station was always way too bluesy and too far removed from the debut but again the quality of the songs sunk in after about 15 years. Spread Eagle's Open To The Public was a bit of a letdown compared to the debut but there's enough strong stuff on it once it gets under your skin to enjoy it. Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue was another real letdown post 1987. Vai didn't do the songs any favours but again there's a pretty good collection of songs once I got over my disappointment. Anything by Harem Scarem after the debut. Still there best for me by a long shot but heaps of solid albums in the mix. Shotgun Messiahs 3rd industrial album. On first listen wtf but songs are fkn awesome. Same goes with  Wasp's KFD.
    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time.
