One of my latest and proudest projects of the year is the reworking of the infamous Darkthrone - A Blaze in the Northern Sky - 2CD 20th anniversary edition. I’ll be working on expanding the album to become the sexiest edition yet!
Pre-order here http://bit.ly/QEaYnZ
Available as a digibook with extra liner notes & rare photos.
Darkthrone began 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.
’A Blaze In The Northern Sky’, Darkthrone’s second album, was originally released in 1992 and was without question the blueprint release for the Black Metal scene, spearheading the evolution of the early second wave movement in Norway & beyond. It was hailed on release as an album of true scene-shifting greatness, following their more death metal centred debut, ’Soulside Journey’.
The album saw a whole new blacker than black Darkthrone, new names, new cold & stripped down sound and highly visual black and white artwork. Fenriz claimed at the time ‘This is the new Darkthrone, the old Darkthrone is dead’. So great was the hunger and need for Darkthrone that it meant absolutely nothing to critics and fans alike that the band hardly ventured out to play live. On the contrary, this only added to the mystique of the band, and saw them, in the eyes of the fans as very much ‘keeping it real’ with their completely uncompromising approach.
This special edition of ‘A Blaze in the Northern Sky’ marks 20 years since the album’s original release, & contains an additional CD featuring Fenriz talking about his memories & recollections of the album’s construction as the music plays in the background. This edition is also presented in digibook format with extra liner notes from Fenriz & Nocturno Culto, plus rare & previously unseen images. Also contains video interview with Nocturno & Fenriz from 2003.
Pre-order now for 5th November release date

Finally get to share the artwork for the Bilocate ‘Summoning the Bygones’ album. The art was completed in September 2011. For a host of reasons it took time to get released. Finally inking a deal with Darkwave Art friends Code666 with a June 11th release date its all been worth the wait.

THE BLACK LOCUST PROJECT, the Norwegian band featuring former THEATRE OF TRAGEDY drummer Hein Frode Hansen, ex-THE CREST guitarist Kristian Sigland, and TO CAST A SHADOW guitarist Marcus Granlien, has made its debut demo available to the general public. There are two versions available: a limited-edition hand-numbered physical CD (limited to only 50 copies), and a free digital copy with MP3s and printable cover artwork (not handnumbered).

THE BLACK LOCUST PROJECT’s demo features the following four tracks: “Gallows”, “We Remain Strangers”, “Funeral Pyre” and “Wounded Sky”.
THE BLACK LOCUST PROJECT was formed in late 2010 after the demise of THEATRE OF TRAGEDY. The music can be described as a mix of progressive rock, industrial, doom, death and thrash metal with melodies.
