Omega Music

Vinyl LP pressing. The intended second album of technical death/doom metal from the Norwegian legends in it's original form. Darkthrone began life in the late 80's, experimenting with thrash, death & doom metal before eventually delving into the black metal genre & becoming synonymous with the style as one of the most highly regarded acts. Goatlord was the title of what was to originally be Darkthrone's second album. The style followed very much in the vein of debut, Soulside Journey, with a mid-paced melodic, yet technical, death metal style. After the full completion of the tracks, however, Darkthrone's focus shifted towards black metal & a more primitive style of composition & 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. Goatlord : Original 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, Ted Skjellum on lead guitar, Ivar Enger on Rhythm guitar & Dag Nilsen on bass.
