Description:

“As bracing as a
shot of super-chilled vodka downed in an ice-storm, this 'best of'
anthology from Icelanders THULE hits on all cylinders.” --
Liz / Metal Maniacs Magazine

The long-overdue 'Official' CD release of the Pre- CURSE / FORTID / POTENTIAM mid-90's recordings of Icelandic Black Metal pioneers THULE(!),
who many of you should remember from the "Fire and Ice" compilation.
This essential anthology excavates seminal tracks rescued from early
recordings without alteration, faithful to the original mid-90's
Scandinavian Black Metal sound and atmosphere now copied by countless
bands today-- with raw, utterly 'cult' production, yet the spark and
energetic aggression shines through via high-calibre songwriting and
crushing ensemble execution.


THANKS to Eldur for bestowing upon us the honor and privilege of
releasing these hallowed, timeless tracks of True Nordic-influenced
Black Metal!


Orthodox BM genius inspired by the early advances of classic EMPEROR,
ENSLAVED, IMMORTAL, MAYHEM, KVIST, and DARKTHRONE, but also with
preliminary hints of progressive icelandic elements that would later be
fully developed in current CURSE and FORTID recordings.


This Anthology CD includes tracks from the "Fire and Ice" compilation
and THULE's now-rare split [K7] with ASMODEUS. The last song on the
album is actually a new recording by CURSE, a cover-version of one of THULE's best! Raw, yet high-calibre Black Metal with unmistakeable genius!
