I only had 50 copies produced of Merciless Night I back in 2002. It went incredibly fast of course, leading me to believe that I could double the order this time around to meet the demand (which worked, after 1 week of availability, I'm down to the last 7 copies!).
For many, the original album was only available online through Markus's site (now through Xeper's I see), though sans booklet.
(glad to see copies are finally arriving for everyone)
