Limited Special Edition Multi-Format Set Of The New, Stellar And Eclectic Journey Of Old Metal In The Darkthrone Odyssey. Contains Exclusive Clear Vinyl, Along With CD And Cassette Editions Of The Album, Plus Exclusive 6 Page Fold-Out Art Print Booklet And Letter Print From Fenriz. From their formation back in 1986, to becoming one of Norways's finest musical exports (with a number of highly revered black metal masterpieces released in the early 90's helping to solidify their legacy), Darkthrone has continued to evolve and challenge in equal measure, throughout their illustrious recording career spanning over three decades. And now, the ever-productive duo of Nocturno and Fenriz continue their own metallic saga with a new selection of fine, vintage sounding headbanging classics in the making. 'Astral Fortress' is itself a swift follow-up to 2021's 'Eternal Hails' opus, as a result of Darkthrone's consistent and ongoing writing process, which has been in force for some years now. For Darkthrone does not sleep - it only waits. Carried on the brisk wind of eager rock, with foundations in black, thrash, doom and heavy metal, 'Astral Fortress' is the latest album of stellar, eclectic old metal in the Darkthrone odyssey. With a seemingly endless dungeon full of heavy metal influences channelled through Darkthrone's dynamic riff-machine, plus also with many increasing inspirations taken from their own past catalogue, Darkthrone has truly become it's own beast within the metal world. Even though sprinkled with atmospheric touches such as synthesizers and mellotron on 'Astral Fortress' to great effect, the Darkthrone sound remains stripped down to the core; always primitive and organic. 'Astral Fortress' was recorded at Chaka Khan Studios in Oslo, the same location used for the 'Eternal Hails' album, with Ole Ovstedal and Silje Hogevold. This limited special edition multi-format boxed set includes 'Astral Fortress' on exclusive clear vinyl, plus CD and cassette tape editions. Also includes an exclusive 6 page fold-out art print booklet and letter print from Fenriz.
