First European re-release on CD of the seventh full-length album by the cult Norwegian Black Metal band.
Darkthrone began in the late 80's as a Thrash/Death Metal act and progressed through Technical Death/Doom Metal experimentation to become legends of the Black Metal world and one of the original leading bands of the Norwegian scene.
"Goatlord" is the title of what was to originally be Darkthrone’s second album. It was a rehearsal tape recorded instrumentally, between "Soulside Journey" and "A Blaze In The Northern Sky", containing songs which were scrapped after the band changed direction from being Death Metal to Black Metal. The vocals were added in 1994. Although Fenriz claims the album was released in 1997 (in the liner-notes on the LP version released in 2002), it was actually most likely released late in 1996.
The style followed very much in the vein of the debut, "Soulside Journey", with a mid-paced melodic Death Metal style. After the recording of the tracks in 1991, however, Darkthrone’s focus shifted towards Black Metal and the album was shelved, while work commenced on what was to be the Norwegian Black Metal milestone, "A Blaze In The Northern Sky", which did actually incorporate some parts from the "Goatlord" tracks.
This 2CD re-edition includes the bonus track "A Blaze in the Northern Sky" in its original form (1991 version) and a bonus commentary disc with Fenriz and Nocturno Culto reflecting on the tracks and their inspirations at the time of writing the material. Also features new cover artwork, as selected by the band, which they feel better represents the band’s vision!
