Description

Originally formed in 1989 by mastermind Snorre Ruch, Marius Vold, & B Yard Faust (Emperor), Norwegian band Thorns' has inspired a great number of acts such as Satyricon, Mayhem, Dissection, & Emperor, mainly due to Snorre's highly influential style of playing & creating riffs on the early Thorns' demo tapes. So impressed was Euronymous of Mayhem, that Snorre became second guitarist in the band for a while & his riffs were used in classic Mayhem tracks. Thorns' was the band's debut (& only, thus far) full-length studio album. It was released in 2001 & is a cult slice of highly individual Norwegian black metal, including experimental & sometimes industrial influences along with synth passages to create a chilling yet clinical slice of extremity. The album was notable for featuring Satyr of Satyricon on vocals, a duty shared between songs with the vocal talent of Aldrahn (ex-D dheimsgard) & the recording line-up also featured Hellhammer of Mayhem on drums. The outcome was a unique & original album which is today considered a cult classic release by critics.

This edition of 'Thorns' is presented on single black vinyl, including printed inner sleeve with lyrics.
