Helstar's "The King of Hell" Back Track Listing Contains Misprint

Texas metal band Helstar brought up an important detail concerning a misprint on the booklets of their new album:

"It has come to our attention that the Locomotive Records North American release for the new album, 'The King of Hell,' contains a misprint. The CD booklets and back track listing include the following Bonus Tracks: 10. White Witch, 11. Tormentor (Sins of the Past version), 12. Caress of the Dead (Sins of the Past version). These songs are not on the Locomotive Records CD itself. Only the AFM Records European release was packaged with the three bonus tracks.

"Helstar apologizes to its fans for the mistake, although the error was on behalf of Locomotive Records and beyond the band's control.

The band and its label are thieves. I was the one who discovered it and no one gave a damn that I was out the money and no restitution was made. Here is the email:
Okay, if you paid $13.99 for the cd, that is definitely not the import price.
As of yesterday, a couple more cases like yours have arisen. The band as been alerted and their management company is being notified as well. "Bonus Tracks" 10, 11, and 12 should not be printed on the US release. It seems that Locomotive has misprinted the booklets and back track listing for the U.S. releases, although they followed through with pressing the cd's accordingly.
I am sorry you were mislead when purchasing this product. Apparently this is an error on behalf of Locomotive Records. Thank you for bringing this matter to my attention. Most likely a statement will be released concerning this issue in the near future.

I mean how many of these really made it out there? I should have been offered a replacement if only a couple more had arisen. In reality, these idiots want you to pay 25.99 for two demo tracks. Download it , Don't buy it!

At least it was the record company who screwed this up. That sucks. Hopefully this problem will get fixed somehow..?

Well, we don't know much about it being the band's fault. As far as I know, it's just a problem with the label.

Let me say this. The band does not have this "press release" on any of their websites and that goes for the label, as well!
