DARKTHRONE – UNHOLY BLACK METAL A LIMITED EDITION FIVE CASSETTE BOXSET!
As we mark 30 years since the release of the genre classic, ‘Under A Funeral Moon’, the True Black Metal era of the Norwegian pioneers is also commemorated with this special limited five cassette boxset. Featuring what was always considered the unholy trinity of Darkthrone albums; namely 1992’s iconic ‘A Blaze in the Northern Sky’, along with ‘Under a Funeral Moon’ (1993) and ‘Transilvanian Hunger’ (1994), this collection also notably includes the often considered “missing link” in the form of 1995’s legendary ‘Panzerfaust’, to now proudly and rightly sit alongside those opuses, for what can be deemed a quartet of timeless and highly regarded black metal masterpieces. As an added bonus, the set also includes the ‘The Wind of 666 Black Hearts’ release, containing Darkthrone’s rare ‘A Blaze in the Northern Sky’ and ‘Under a Funeral Moon’ rehearsals. The accompanying 40 page booklet features rare photos from this period of the band, as well as text chronicling the early-mid 90’s chapter of Darkthrone from the prior ‘Black Death & Beyond’ book release, along with extra compiled articles on this period. Additionally, ‘Unholy Black Metal’ includes two posters in the shape of the ‘Taakeferd’ and ‘Ferdasyn’ paintings from ‘Under a Funeral Moon’ and ‘TransilvanianHunger’ respectively, plus eight photo prints and a certificate of authenticity. This set is strictly limited to 1000 copies worldwide and will be shipping within days of you placing your order .. when it’s gone it’s gone!
