|Darkthrone A Blaze In The Northern Sky Limited Picture Disc Vinyl LP
SPECIAL LIMITED PICTURE DISC 12" VINYL EDITION OF THE ICONIC BLACK METAL CLASSIC FROM DARKTHRONE. 'A Blaze In The Northern Sky', Darkthrone's second album, was originally released in 1992 and was without question the blueprint 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 centered debut, 'Soulside Journey'.
The rawness apparent on the album (recorded at Creative Studios, the same location as Mayhem's legendary Deathcrush was put to tape), was unusual for the time and an antithesis to the usual metal production values & standards during the period. With this, Darkthrone's statement of attitude & intent was clear, and their status as masters of Norwegian black metal was set.
This limited edition of 'A Blaze in the Northern Sky' coincides with the 30th anniversary of the band & is presented on 12" picture disc vinyl featuring the iconic cover image set in a special cut-out sleeve.
