DARKTHRONE To Release ‘Goatlord: Original’ In February

Darkthrone 2022

DARKTHRONE will release Goatlord: Original album on February 10 via Peaceville Records.

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, focus shifted towards black metal and a more primitive style of composition & so the album was shelved, while work commenced on what was to be a 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, and Dag Nilsen on bass.
