Fakes / Bootlegs

The "Fakes" section and its gallery are meant for information purposes only. Their primary function is to warn people about the multiples fake records around that might be advertized on the web or in fairs as the real Black Album. We do not support bootlegers. This website is not intended as a shoppingmall for bootlegs. See our disclaimer for more on the subject.
