Transilvanian Hunger (Pic Disc)
DARKTHRONE'S LEGENDARY 1994 BLACK METAL RELEASE PRESENTED ON LIMITED PICTURE DISC FORMAT MARKING 30 YEARS OF PEACEVILLE AND DARKTHRONE
Darkthrone began life 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.
Famously written and recorded over a period of just 2 weeks, 'Transilvanian Hunger' features primitive guitar riffs over a monotonous drum beat creating a feel of hypnotic starkness with its blend of Von, Burzum and Bathory. Over the years the album has become representative of the definitive 90's Norwegian black metal sound and style, often copied but never bettered. The album also contains lyrical contributions from Varg Vikernes of Burzum.
'Transilvanian Hunger' was recorded with Fenriz' 'Necrohell' studio, and was the first release where the band became a duo, following the departure of guitarist Zephyrous.
This edition of 'Transilvanian Hunger' is presented on limited picture disc vinyl format with special cut-out sleeve featuring cover artwork from the original inlay painting, plus the traditional cover image on the reverse side.
