Unrepeatable ocurrence in the timeless frost that is black metal

Total cult and nowadays even a bit forgotten because of the worshipping of the new releases of the band..

'The Shadowthrone' is easily my favourite release by these (relative) late-comers to the Norwegian fold. While the debut and 'Nemesis Divina' are absolute classics in their own right, I feel that this is criminally overlooked in comparison to the aforementioned releases: it's decidedly unorthodox in its composition, what with it's long, unwieldy, off-kilter riffs. It's also one of the first black metal albums to incorporate authentic Nordic folk melodies, and is all the better for it.

One of the greatest Black Metal albums of its time, and without a doubt Satyricon's magnum opus along with "Nemesis Divina". I'll never forget these amazing days...when masterpieces were being released one after the other.

This is my favourite black metal of all time and what I consider to be the perfect black metal album. Artistic structures, swinging rhythms, tasteful keyboards and an atmosphere that conjures up the Norwegian forests, this to me is perfection. 100%.

A mid paced, black metal album with a unique dark folklore atmosphere and epic, brooding riffs overlaid with excellent vocals. A true masterpiece.

If you are ever driving up north at night through the woods this album should
Be played on your car stereo and a feeling will be captured within you that
Can only truly be understood as "transcendent".

This is no sophomore slump, I can tell you that.
This is True Norwegian Black Metal Art for Dark Souls!
