Longstanding Norwegian band Darkthrone started in 1986, originally under the name of ‘Black
Death’, before their final infamous moniker was introduced. Although becoming known the world
over as a black metal band crucial to the legacy of the genre, Darkthrone began more as an extreme
metal band utilising element of thrash, death & doom metal into their early compositions.
‘Cromlech’ was Darkthrone’s final demo release before a deal was inked with Peaceville Records.
The demo was recorded in 1989 with the line-up of Gylve Nagell (Drums), Ted Skjellum
(Guitars/vocals), Ivar Enger (Guitars) & Dag Nilsen (Bass); a line-up which would remain in place for
the revered ‘Soulside Journey’ & ‘A Blaze In The Northern Sky‘ albums.
As well as the iconic ‘Cromlech’ demo itself – containing tracks which would go on to form part of
the ‘Soulside Journey’ debut - this release also contains additional tracks from the Bootleg TV Oslo
recordings in 1989, including a cover of Celtic Frost’s ‘Visual Aggression’.
Finally, this edition of ‘Cromlech’ also includes a trio of instrumental tracks from a rehearsal tape
originally made for Peaceville founder Paul 'Hammy' Halmshaw, sent to him in 1990.
This edition of ‘Cromlech’ is presented in classic black vinyl with a printed inner sleeve & includes the
original ‘Cromlech’ art/logo.
