A 20th Anniversary double vinyl edition of Thelema 6 featuring four bonus tracks.
Presented on blue vinyl with a Side 4 etching and in a gatefold cover, Side 3 includes two tracks originally featured on The Anti-Christian Phenomenon EP in 2000, plus a cover of David Bowie's Hallo Space Boy.
Originally released in 2000, Thelema 6 stood as an important milestone in the evolution of Behemoth and introduced more elements from the death metal genre, all the time advancing and developing further from their black metal roots, both as composers and musicians.
Thelema 6 is the band's fifth album and a fair step away from its early raw and primitive beginnings.
Eternal Hails.... - the 2021 studio album of epic Black Metal from Norwegian legends Darkthrone - contains five sprawling masterworks.
With the highly revered Norwegians remaining ever-dedicated to the art of the riff after 35 years of existence, Darkthrone returns for album number nineteen and a new dose of Metallic godliness.
On the back of 2019’s triumphant Old Star opus, the duo of Nocturno Culto & Fenriz present a 41 minute maelstrom of Epic Black Heavy Metal across five sprawling compositions. Organic and dynamic, the album is an exploration of the finest vintage Metal and the best of Doom, all delivered in the unmistakable Darkthrone style (whilst also incorporating instruments such as the Moog to further expand upon these soundscapes).
180g Black LP
The paradigm-shifting fourth studio opus from Norwegian pioneers, Ulver.
Limited red double vinyl in gatefold with full lyrics/text, plus a new article from writer and journalist Jeff Wagner on the background, nature and triumph of such this ambitious release.
Themes from William Blake's The Marriage of Heaven & Hell includes guest vocal appearances from Darkthrone’s Fenriz, and Ihsahn and Samoth (Emperor).
Paradise Lost formed in Halifax, West Yorkshire in 1988 & are known for being the founders of the Gothic Death/Doom Metal genre; a style fully brought into existence with their genre-defining second album, the highly influential Gothic.
Lost Paradise was the band's debut album, released in 1990 & one of the early highlights in the formative years of Peaceville. Featuring more death metal influences, Paradise Lost created a dark & atmospheric style of brutal death metal, as opposed to one based on speed. The album was recorded at Academy Studios (My Dying Bride, Anathema, Cradle of Filth) in Yorkshire, England.
This edition of Lost Paradise is available on 180gm black vinyl.
Released in 1998, 'Alternative 4', Anathema's fourth studio album, quickly became the band's best-selling and most highly regarded release to date.
Containing evocative atmospheric passages and emotional Rock anthems, Alternative 4 represented a giant progression from the band's previous work and hinted at the massive changes to come.
Displaying a more mature sound than the band's earlier recordings, this is the album that gave birth to the more conceptual approach, that the band took further on such albums as a 'A Fine Day To Exit' and 'A Natural Disaster'.
Limited heavyweight 180gm vinyl edition.
Katatonia was formed in 1991 by Anders Nyström and Jonas Renkse.
Their debut album, Dance of December Souls, was released in 1993, gaining the band recognition for their eclectic brand of gothic doom/death metal & joining acts such as Paradise Lot & My Dying Bride as one of the genre's defining bands.
Originally released in 1996, second album Brave Murder Day is a true classic. The primitive structures and melodies give this album an unparalleled trance-like quality, by taking an early Paradise Lost influence and forming a completely unique sound and atmosphere. The majority of the vocal duties were carried out in his signature death-growl style by Mikael Åkerfeldt, while Jonas Renkse delivered the clean vocal passages, that he is known for today, on the ethereal track, Day.
180g Black LP
Solefald’s 1999 release Neonism available on vinyl for the first time!
Solefald was formed in Norway by members Lars Are "Lazare" Nedland and Cornelius Jakhelln in 1995.
Possessing a strong penchant for experimentation, Solefald were classified as avant-garde black metal.
Neonism was originally released in 1999 and ventured even further into the realms of genre expanding diversity than the band's debut album in what could be classified as an early example of ‘post black metal’.
Prog metal, black metal, punk, classical, jazz, as well as multiple modern styles and influences such as drum & bass and electronica were combined to make an incredibly varied album both instrumentally and vocally.
Double vinyl edition in gatefold sleeve.
20th anniversary pressing of Taake’s cult 1999 debut studio album of masterfully crafted true Norwegian Black Metal.
Vinyl in gatefold sleeve including rare images and a limited edition poster.
Nattestid was a stellar introduction to Taake's unusual brand of cold and yet surprisingly melodic, at times complex composition.
The album featured both grim and clean vocals alongside icy riffs and atmospherics creating a truly dark experience.
The lyrics were written and sung in old Norwegian and with an execution compared to the likes of earlier Darkthrone, Immortal or Satyricon, Nattestid was quickly acclaimed as a classic of Norwegian Black Metal.
A third album of unreleased vintage cult Metal from the classic solo project created by Darkthrone's Fenriz.
180g vinyl with liner notes from Fenriz (explaining the origins of the release, the recording process, and providing some background into his influences at the time).
Vårjevndøgn presents a monumental slab of epic Heavy Metal mixed with a sombre Doomy Rock/Metal atmosphere, bringing to mind bands like US Heavy Metal veterans Pentagram.
The album also includes 2 tracks previously only heard on the limited Traditional Doom Cult 7”.
Everything on Vårjevndøgn was performed and engineered by Fenriz himself.
The tracks were all recorded between 1989 and 1993 at Necrohell Studios (notable for birthing Darkthrone’s classic Transilvanian Hunger and Panzerfaust albums).
180g Black LP
Isengard was the solo-project started in 1989 by Fenriz because he had many musical ideas to explore that didn't strictly fit in with the style and music of Darkthrone.
Under the Isengard moniker, Fenriz released 2 albums, Vinterskugge & Høstmørke. Hostmorke, meaning Autumn Darkness, was the second Isengard album, (even though the debut, 'Vinterskugge' is a collection of sorts).
It was released in 1995 and featured a continuation of Norwegian folk elements mixed with some doom, with all instruments once again performed by Fenriz himself, as well as the now-trademark vocal delivery.
The latter part of the album also features a couple of black metal tracks which explore territory a bit more in line with Darkthrone.
180g Black LP
Originally released in 2000, ’Strange Old Brew’ is the second album by the ever-uncompromising Norwegians. It was recorded at Sound Suite Studios, produced & mixed by Terje Refsnes (Tristania, Gehenna, Sirenia).
Considered a cult Black Metal release, the album deals with dark themes of death & suicide, introducing stronger atmospherics alongside their trademark brand of raw Black Metal mixed with inspiration from the 80’s Black Metal scene & rock/punk genres.
Carpathian Forest remain one of the leading names from the infamous Scandinavian Black Metal Scene.
This edition of ‘Strange Old Brew’ is presented on 180gm black vinyl.
Recorded at Ghost Ward Studios and the City of Glass Studios in Stockholm, and mixed by David Castillo, 'Grand Morbid Funeral', Bloodbath's fourth full-length studio release, is undoubtedly the band's darkest and dirtiest opus yet; an organic collection of filth-ridden tracks straight from the grave, boldly eschewing the approach of somewhat over-produced modern death metal in favour of something altogether more rotten to the bone.
With doom-like melodies mixed with raw and savage riffing backing up new vocalist Nick Holmes of UK legends Paradise Lost, and featuring a number of guest appearances including Chris Reifert and Eric Cutler from US gore-masters Autopsy, 'Grand Morbid Funeral' is a new high-point of brutality for Bloodbath.
