Black Dominion - Second edition clear vinyl with yellow labels
  • All items inside the box are hand-numbered, and so is the vinyl on the label.
  • The box itself is black (or dark grey) with the lid glued to it on the left side.
    It has the same glossy triangle stickers on the front and the back as the standard 12" cover.
    But the stickers on the box are way larger.
  • Basically, all vinyls of these box-sets are black.
    However, at least one box-set with clear vinyl has surfaced as well.

  • The second edition features the same tracks on clear vinyl with plain yellow labels.
  • This edition is also limited to 20 copies.
  • The thick black glossy cover has the same triangle stickers on the front and back as the box set,
    though in much smaller size.

  • The third edition, known as the Standard Edition is basically the same as the second one.
  • Vinyls are black with plain blue or plain yellow labels.
  • This is also a limited edition, but of allegedly 1.000 copies.
