Staff review by
I you're a fan of Darkthrone and cannot find their first demos then maybe "Frostland Tapes" will be a good replacement for you. Actually, this nice digipack is a compilation of the four demos of the Norwegian cult band including the first instrumental version of Goatlord plus a short live show recorded in Denmark in 1990. It's of course not so new and not perfectly recorded but this part of Metal history must be discovered in my opinion and I think that the fans of the band will find something interesting for them here.

This also comes as a 2 disk version. All the songs are on here, but Cromlech demo is on the 1st disk and Live from Denmark and Goatloard are the 2nd disk.
"Another day, another Doug."
"I'll fight you on one condition. That you lower your nipples."
