I just had a very unpleasant experience with Adriano. We all know of his crazy prices, but that's not what concerns me. I was working out a trade with him, and he offered me some CDs. I asked for the matrix number on one of them (being that there is a bootleg pressing of it) He then replied saying that it might be a bootleg. I know that mistakes happen, but don't try and play things off that something is the real deal "unless it is specifically asked about" Just want everyone to know that if you deal with Adriano, ask specifically what pressing every CD is. Oh, and ask conditions too, I have had a problem in the past on this issue as well.

 

Last thing, he does a terrible job on adding up the prices on the CDs you are trading him and the CDs he's trading you, I'm talking like a swing of a few hundred dollars, not just a couple bucks. Anyway, just wanted to pass the info along.

I've traded with Adriano many times with absolutely no issues. I've never gotten a bootleg from him and really never would have expected to. We have had some trades fall through but it is has always been about his prices. I definitely agree they are pretty high, but I guess they are his CDs so he can ask whatever he wants for them. So I'm sorry you have been having bad luck with him lately. But as far as my experience with him, it has always been positive.

I ask to all top traders that know me to tell this trader how tough is to get top collectable cds nowadays...I have the right to ask the price I think it´s fair...you, to pay the price...tell him the bad experiences you had with me... I doubt anyone will say a word about I´ve been selling bootlegs...I was asking $25 for a Glasgow cd because I wasn´t sure about the authenticity, a very tough job to identify inclusiv to top sellers with so many bootleggers, that´s all he has to say....I didn´t accept your extorsive conditions, you went mad....stop your nasty game, Utah!

Adriano,i have done over the years many trades with you.but also we had many failed trades where we couldn`t agree the terms of the trade.i agree with you and know for fact its hard finding rare cds and i respect what prices they are even if it too much.i have a selection of rare cds with big price tags.i dont want to put that price,but thats how it is.we all share the same frustration together in regards to trading ,and selling and ,buying.most important is on heavy harmoines we can share the information on whats rare and whats a fair price.we all know our stuff on this subject.

I'm pretty sure I said "We all know of his crazy prices, but that's not what concerns me." I'm actually not complaining about Adrianio's prices. He is more than welcome to sell CDs for whatever he wants.

 

It's funny, because when I was negotiating with Adriano, he started getting rude with his comments. It was I that said there is no reason for this, we have had a lot of history trading with each other in the past and I'd like things to stay good between us. Things mellowed out until I told him that I was not going to make the trade with him, he then replied with a last desperate offer, but I was still not convinced (w/ a bootleg in the trade) so I told him "no" and he flipped out. Anyone who knows me, knows that I'm not afraid to speak my mind, but I was nothing shy of showing Adriano respect until the point of him flipping out and accusing me of saying things I clearly did not say.

 

Regardless of all this crap, the intention of this thread was not to throw Adriano under the bus. I still completely respect his knowledge for what he does. My intention of this thread was to warn everyone (not of his high prices, please take note) that you should ask for matrix numbers and conditions of EVERY CD you are getting from Adriano. I don't want to see someone end up with a bootleg.

MR. METAL 4 EVER:

 

STOP THE LIES, DO NOT DISTORT THE HISTORY: I CANCELLED THE DEAL MYSELF BECAUSE I WAS TIRED TO HEAR YOUR BULLSHIT. SO I BLOCKED YOUR EMAILS AND YOU WENT MAD BECAUSE WAS LOSING A VERY NICE DEAL.

 

NO PROBLEM TO ADMIT I WAS WRONG NOT CHECKING THE AUTHENTICITY OF THE CD. EVERYBODY HAS PROBLEMS WITH THE HUGE QUANTITY OF BOOTLEGS FLOATING AROUND (IN SOME CASES 2-3 DIFFERENT PRESSINGS, ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO COMPARE IF YOU DON´T OWN THE VERY FIRST ORIGINAL PRESSING). MY MISTAKE, I SENT MY APOLOGIES. IT WAS USELESSS.

 

AS I SAID, IF SOMEONE RECEIVED A RARE CD FROM ME AND DISCOVERED IT´S A BOOTLEG, I WILL REIMBURSE THE MONEY OR REPLACE IMMEDIATELY THE CD. I AM WAITING ANY MESSAGES SENT DIRECTLY TO ADBOIMEL@UOL.COM.BR. I AM 99,99999% SURE I WON´T RECEIVE ONE SINGLE MESSAGE.

 

FROM THE MOMENT I DECIDE TO REPLY THOSE MESSAGES HERE, I WILL NOT STOP UNTIL TELL EVERYONE WHAT IS HAPPENING USING MY REPUTATION AND KNOWLEDGE. AGAIN: I HATE TO WASTE TIME, BUT IN THIS CASE MR. METAL 4 EVER IS PLAYING A DIRTY AND DANGEROUS GAME TRYING TO DESQUALIFY ME. BE AWARE FROM ME, COME ON...IT´S A CHILDISH AND IMPRUDENT COMMENT. I WILL DEFEND MYSELF IF I SEE ANYTHING ISN´T RIGHT.

 

YOU LOST ALL MY RESPECT.

 

LIKE SAID "WHIPLASH72", I PREFER TO STOP THIS STATE OF WAR BEFORE THE THINGS GONNA BE OUT OF CONTROL.

Adriano, I could PM you our e-mail conversation if you want to show you who cancelled the deal, but the purpose of this thread was not to let everyone here know who cancelled the deal. As everyone here can read my postings, I had 1 intention of this thread, and that was to warn collectors of possible problems that could arise, such as what I was dealing with.

 

I'm not trying to ruin your name Adriano, in fact you can see in my postings that I actually complimented you and your knowledge (have not seen a single kind word from you in long time, or maybe ever) I am just letting everyone know what to watch out for.

With a title called Adriano and a subtitle called beware. Kinda hard to think someone is not trying to ruin someone elses reputation.

 

If I see an album or movie review with a negative word to describe it in the title bar, I'm sure not going to read the article hoping to find the positives.

 

It might have been better to focus on the cd in question and not the seller.

thanks, zacharyamelie! You read my mind....

 

I didn´t start this discussion, I would prefer do not fight in public, but i need to make the things clear. If Dan and the moderators decide to delete those messages, I appreciate. Otherwise I am almost done with cds...

 

I don´t have anything else to say for you, Josh: except I think everyone receive the treatment deserved. If I was rude, you ask for it.

 

I am waiting for moderators position.

So I deserved to receive a bootleg from you, why? And this thread was not to sing Adriano's praises, it was to warn buyers of possible problems. I don't need to go into more detail, this was a feud between Adriano and I. I wanted to give everyone a fair warning and nothing else...

I have traded with Adriano twice in the past. I can only report that he is a respectable and reliable trader who has helped me out with some very tough to find discs. Yes, it sometimes takes a bit of negotiating to strike a deal, but that is the joy of trading really. I have always found his communication to be excellent, and have always been very happy with the CD's that I received. Personally, I wouldn't hesitate to trade with Adriano again.

I agree. This topic comes across as an attempt to defame someone - that is clear from the very start.

Just an FYI - but matrix numbers are not a reliable way to determine if a CD is a bootleg...the numbers can match on a bootleg CD, the bootleggers can find out what the matrix numbers should be and put them on their CDs too. You need to look at what the matrix numbers look like, not what they actually are. Most record pressing companies have a distinct font they use (like Nimbus for instance).

Ah yes, the Nimbus! Nimbus 2000 to be exact...wise choice for the young wizard.

    • I like it plenty, they've always had this kind of gloomy side to some of their songs, and they do that really well.
    • I'm becoming the biggest fan of this band. I also like how they chose non-obvious covers. It shows they have a sense of history and must be genre fans like us.
    • I dig that new tune. Nice. 
    • New song is okay but I don't like their metal sound. Everything is too loud and hurts when you turn the volume up a little. Samples on Itunes of the rest of the album sound okay, too. Some moments that are worse than I ever imagined Wig Wam to be (The american dream chorus absolutely doesn't fit and only contains 3 notes and god by your side would be okay if Åge sang it, sailor and the desert sun screams anything but Wig Wam), some moments are quite cool (Forevermore is very different, uppercut shazam is hard hitting and a typical Wig wam anthem). In the end it's too much Trond Holter for me. He's writing good riffs but he can't be quiet for a second. It's just missing the effortlessness and the good vibe in my opinion.  
    • 'The Big Easy' out March 17th.   Press release: Already the first lines of the new John Diva song "Back In The Days" convey what feeling the band stands for. Spandex pants, youthful recklessness, party mood and full batteries in the Walkman: John Diva & The Rockets Of Love bring the carefree moments of the 80s into the present and make them sound like the new hot shit. And can't we all use a little carefree? John Diva & The Rockets Of Love stand for fat parties, passionate stage shows stage shows, but also for liberal messages in their lyrics. Bullshit? No way. So the five musicians give the genre-usual sexism in their lyrics a clear rebuff, for example in songs like "Boys Don't Play With Dolls". "With us, everyone is welcome and appreciated," frontman John Diva makes clear. Good thing. Because I think we can all use a little carefree attitude. TRACKLIST 1. California Rhapsody 2. The Big Easy 3. God Made Radio 4. Runaway Train 5. Thunder 6. Believe 7. Back In The Days 8. Hit And Run 9. Boys Don’t Play With Dolls 10. The Limit Is The Sky 11. Capri Style 12. Wild At Heart    
    • New song 'ln For The Count' (Balance cover)   Tracklisting: 1. In For the Count (Balance cover) 2. Dancin' in the Ruins (Blue Öyster Cult cover) 3. In My Dreams (REO Speedwagon cover) 4. Subdivisions (Rush cover) LINE-UP: Alex Falk - vocals Oscar Bromvall - guitars Rickard Gramfors - bass Freddie Allen - drums      
    • From Frontiers: Norwegian rock n' roll warriors Wig Wam have announced they will release their new studio album, "Out Of The Dark" on February 10, 2023. Coming on the heels of renewed, enthusiastic interest in the band thanks to their classic track 'Do Ya Wanna Taste It' being used as the theme song for HBO's popular Peacemaker television series, "Out Of The Dark" sees an already extremely talented band feeling truly reinvigorated and inspired.  Wig Wam, vocalist Glam (Åge Sten Nilsen), guitarist Teeny (Trond Holter), bassist Flash (Bernt Jansen), and drummer Sporty (Øystein Andersen), formed in Halden, Norway in 2001 and have been mixing '80s inspired glam metal with classic hard rock, with entertaining lyrics and over-the-top imagery thrown in, to create a good old fashioned rock n' roll vibe for over two decades. In 2005, the year after the release of their debut album (first titled 667.. The Neighbour of the Beast and later changed to Hard To Be A Rock N' Roller), the band had their first international breakthrough when they represented Norway in the Eurovision Song Contest, placing ninth with the song "In My Dreams". The band would go on to release three more studio albums, Wig Wamania (2006), Non Stop Rock 'N Roll (2010), and Wall Street (2012) before splitting up in 2014.  The band would reunite in 2019 and work on a new album, Never Say Die that was released in early 2021. In 2022, the band had a stroke of good fortune when film/television director James Gunn selected their 2010 song "Do Ya Wanna Taste It" (from the album Non Stop Rock 'N Roll) as the opening theme song for the HBO Max show Peacemaker starring John Cena. The show, based on a DC Comics character, showcased the band to a whole new audience who had been previously unaware of them and has seen the band taking on renewed interest and booking more and more live dates around the world.  With new album "Out In The Dark" in tow, Wig Wam is ready to show even more rock 'n roll fans around the globe their entertaining take on hard rock! Tracklisting: 1. Out Of The Dark 2. High And Dry 3. Forevermore 4. Bad Luck Chuck 5. Uppercut Shazam 6. Ghosting You 7. The Purpose 8. The American Dream 9. 79 10. God By Your Side 11. Sailor And The Desert Sun Line-Up: Glam (Åge Sten Nilsen) - vocals Teeny (Trond Holter) - guitars Flash (Bernt Jansen) - bass Sporty (Øystein Andersen) - drums
