DARKTHRONE – SHADOWS OF ICONOCLASM (box set trailer)

AN EXTENSIVE 6LP, 4 TAPE SET WITH 7”, DVD & BOOK, COVERING THE EARLY YEARS OF THE NORWEGIAN METAL LEGENDS, WITH EXCLUSIVE MATERIAL COMING 2ND APRIL 2021. Peaceville Records are set to release a glorious, limited edition Darkthrone box set – Shadows Of Iconoclasm on 2nd April.

This deluxe set marks the formative years of one of Norway’s finest & most celebrated metal exports, as well as highlighting the 30th anniversary of their ground-breaking debut opus Soulside Journey, this extensive vinyl and cassette boxset contains the full early works of the band, much of which sees a release for the first time, including restored material courtesy of Patrick Engel at Temple of Disharmony. From humble beginnings to revered gods of metal, Shadows of Iconoclasm unfolds the band’s early journey towards greatness.

The special cover artwork for this set is inspired by the early works of the band & comes courtesy of notable artist Zbigniew Bielak. This box set has been compiled and curated with the band and features content from their personal archives – Fenriz comments “We only had a few months to write what would become ‘A Blaze in the Northern Sky’ and we had to blacken up a whole song from the ‘Goatlord’ session, and here and there on ‘A Blaze…’ you can hear a few riffs from ‘Goatlord’. Ironically I ended up listening way more to the ‘Goatlord’ album than I ever did with ‘A Blaze in the Northern Sky’. Maybe because ‘Goatlord’ feels super-real to me and I want to thank Patrick Engel for cleaning up the rehearsal sound without manipulating it much.” He continues “The real sensation in this box is the live performance from Bootleg Stage Oslo 1990, soundboard sound with live performances of several of the tracks from our Goatlord album, I was so stoked when I discovered this (and no, I never had this on video myself so it was the first time I heard the audio now after over 30 years and it made me very happy. It was a non-alcoholic stage but we were pretty wasted too!)”

SHADOWS OF ICONOCLASM will be released on Peaceville Records on 2nd April 2021 and is now available to pre-order HERE (https://darkthrone.lnk.to/ShadowsOfIconoclasm)
