DARKTHRONE (Nor) – ‘The Frostland Tapes’ D-CD
A 2cd set, including previously unreleased material, Frostland Tapes is a fascinating glimpse into the early years of one of Metal's most ferocious ambassadors. The first official release to collect all 4 of Darkthrone's ultra-rare 1980s demos. Frostland Tapes also includes alive recording from Denmark in 1990 and the all-instrumental, and rightly infamous 1991 Goatlord rehearsal sessions. These songs were intended to feature on the proposed second album, before the band changed direction and the tapes were confined to the vaults. Vocals were subsequently added in the mid-nineties, but they are presented here as the recording sounded in 1991 an instrumental genius, showing the complexity and intricacy of a band with a great future ahead of them.
