THULE "Anthology 1995-1997" CD
Discography of mid-90's recordings of Icelandic Black Metal pioneers THULE recorded during the lifespan of the group anno 1995-1997.
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.
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 tape with ASMODEUS. Raw, yet high-calibre Black Metal with unmistakeable genius.
