CULT RECORDINGS FROM 1989 & 1991 FROM THE SOLO-PROJECT OF DARKTHRONE'S FENRIZ, PRESENTED ON BLACK VINYL WITH THE ORIGINAL TAPE COVER ARTWORK.
Isengard was the solo-project started in 1989 by Fenriz - one the key driving forces behind Norwegian legends Darkthrone - because he had many musical ideas to explore that didn't strictly fit in with the style & music of Darkthrone. Under the Isengard moniker, Fenriz has a trio of releases, 'Vinterskugge', 'Høstmørke', & most recently the further collection of Fenriz's early & rare recordings, released in 2020 as 'Varjevndogn'.
The original version of 'Vinterskugge' consisted of 3 separate recording sessions conducted between 1989 & 1993 & covering a multitude of styles, including doom, rock, folk, death, black & viking metal. 'Vinterskugge' also demonstrated Fenriz's breadth of vocal styles, lending an epic edge to many of the tracks.
This vinyl release contains the second & third chapters of ‘Vinterskugge’, with 1989's cult 'Spectres Over Gorgoroth' recordings, followed by tracks made in 1991 & forming the 'Horizons' chapter.
This edition of 'Spectres Over Gorgoroth' is presented on black vinyl & features the original demo cassette cover artwork, plus additional lyrics.
