Isengard - Vinterskugge

After last weeks thread with like a whopping 5 replies we return this week with Isengards Vinterskugge. What a great album. I bought the album when I felt that I needed more of that 90s Darkthrone sound but I had all the DT albums from that time and it still wasn't enough. This album satisfied that itch, but it was also an attempt by Fenriz to play Pagan or Viking Metal, which sounded totally different back then from what people expect when they hear those genres today. There's clean vocals, folky BM, even accessible stuff like this gem right here:

(on the Peaceville re-release, not at all representative)

The vocals can be really awesome at times here, but some of the riffs on this, man, shit rules so hard

It's not a regular album, but rather a compilation with Vandreren, Spectres over Gorgoroth Demo, and Horizons. I like it a bit more than Hostmorke.

Missed the first thread. I actually like this one better than the full length. Wonderful stuff indeed.
