DARKTHRONE have announced a new album!
Title Goatlord: Original, the upcoming album from the iconic Norwegian band comes hot on the heels of last year’s Astral Fortress, and is scheduled to be released in February this year, via Peaceville Records.
Goatlord was the title of what was to originally be the band’s second album. The style followed very much in the vein of debut, Soulside Journey, however, DARKTHRONE‘s focus shifted towards black metal and a more primitive style of composition and so the album was shelved, while work commenced on what was to be the Norwegian black metal milestone, A Blaze in the Northern Sky, which incorporated some parts from the Goatlord tracks.
The intended second album contains these cult tracks in their original instrumental form, recorded in the band’s rehearsal space (vocals were added in the mid-90’s before an official release came through Moonfog Productions in 1996), with the classic line-up of Gylve ‘Fenris’ Nagell on drums, Nocturno Culto on lead guitar, Ivar Enger on guitars, and Dag Nilsen on bass. Taken from Fenriz’s original tape source and transferred/mastered by Patrick Engel at Temple Of Disharmony.
