Darkthrone - A Blaze in the Northern Sky (20th anniversary edition) (Double CD)
Darkthrone began in the late 80’s as a thrash/death metal act & progressed through technical death/doom metal experimentation to become legends of the black metal world & one of the original leading bands of the Norwegian scene, as well as inspiring a whole generation of metal bands.
’A Blaze In The Northern Sky’, Darkthrone's second album, was originally released in 1992 and was without question the blueprint release for the Black Metal scene, spearheading the evolution of the early second wave movement in Norway & beyond. It was hailed on release as an album of true scene-shifting greatness, following their more death metal centred debut, ’Soulside Journey’.
The album saw a whole new blacker than black Darkthrone, new names, new cold & stripped down sound and highly visual black and white artwork. Fenriz claimed at the time 'This is the new Darkthrone, the old Darkthrone is dead'. So great was the hunger and need for Darkthrone that it meant absolutely nothing to critics and fans alike that the band hardly ventured out to play live. On the contrary, this only added to the mystique of the band, and saw them, in the eyes of the fans as very much 'keeping it real' with their completely uncompromising approach.
This special edition of ‘A Blaze in the Northern Sky’ marks 20 years since the album’s original release, & contains an additional CD featuring Fenriz talking about his memories & recollections of the album’s construction as the music plays in the background. This edition is also presented in digibook format with extra liner notes from Fenriz & Nocturno Culto, plus rare & previously unseen images. Also contains video interview with Nocturno & Fenriz from 2003.
