DARKTHRONE – Demo Collection The Wind Of 666 Black Hearts To Receive CD Release
August 18, 2017, a year ago
Peaceville Records will release a compilation of demos from Darkthrone entitled The Wind Of 666 Black Hearts on CD on October 6th. The CD is available for preorder at this location. The 2LP vinyl edition was released in November 2016 and is still available here.
The album holds pre-album recordings from 1991 and 1992, created during Darkthrone's highly regarded transitional period as the band marched towards black metal infamy.
The Wind Of 666 Black Hearts contains tracks which would go on to feature on the classic A Blaze In The Northern Sky and Under A Funeral Moon albums. The A Blaze... rehearsal tracks feature the line-up of Nocturno Culto, Fenriz, Zephyrous and Dag Nilsen, while the Under a Funeral Moon rehearsal tracks saw Darkthrone narrowed to a 3-piece act, with Nocturno moving to bass and Zephyrous handling all guitars, with the recordings taken from the band's rehearsal venue in Vinterbro.
The Wind Of 666 Black Hearts also includes rare photos, lyrics, and liner notes from Fenriz.
