After De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas and In the Nightside Eclipse, the time has come…

TO BE DRAPED BY THE SHADOW OF YOUR MORBID PALACE
OHH, HATE LIVING… THE ONLY HEAT IS WARM BLOOD

Transilvanian Hunger
Over fjell og gjennom torner
Skald av Satans sol
Slottet i det fjerne
Graven tåkeheimens saler
I en hall med flesk og mjød
As Flittermice as Satans Spys
En ås i dype skogen

Or maybe I should have started with A Blaze in the Northern Sky, which I prefer in some ways.

Single-minded Darkthrone is a sight to behold but I have a soft spot for the comparative maximalism of their post-Dark Throne debut. I also tend to pick atmoblack over the rawer stuff when pressed, so that might have something to do with it.

DEVASTATION, BLASPHEMY, DESECRATION, UNHOLY HE
WHO BURNED THE FACE OF GOD WITH THE EYE OF OUR MASTER

Satan, who is obv. pretty cool, is also described in the song as the guy who 'disseminate[d] the races'. Given the… less savoury lyrical aspects of this album, I welcome its cognitive dissonance.

As Flittermice as Satans Spys is my favourite Darkthrone song from any album

which is the one that goes 'DAHN! DA-NAHN! DUN DA-NAH NAHHHHH!'?

That one

Just checked and it's the third track

I’m with pomenitul, hard to choose between Blaze and TH. Going with the title track, best memories, my old band used to cover it.

I suppose everyone’s heard the reissue with the Fenriz commentary track by now?

I have a 2003 reissue with some Quicktime (do they still exist?) video content. Requires Win95 or higher....

I confess I've never watched it.

crap, all I have is Deskmate here on my Tandy 1000 TX

Neanderthal, Friday, 11 September 2020 20:09 (one week ago) link

Title track is the easy choice for me.

My copy of UAFM is the 2013 issue with a second disc of commentary by Fenriz. Worth listening to. Xpost
