Darkthrone's intended second album in its original instrumental form.
Taken from Fenriz’s original tape source and transferred/mastered by Patrick Engel at Temple of Disharmony, Goatlord: Original represents the pinnacle of Darkthrone’s more death/doom metal oriented direction.
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.
Featuring intricate arrangements, sombre melodies and a truly distinguishable style overall, Goatlord: Original represents a band performing well in advance of its young age.
