As you may have noticed, a third of this is devoted to their much-revered "At the Heart of Winter" LP (except a pair of substandard tracks), a magnificent piece of, as they call it, "blackened thrash metal" that deserves its inclusion in the pantheon of most brilliant AND most important metal records of the 90s. When I listened to this for the first time I thought I was feeling the same thing that metalheads in the 80s felt when "Ride the Lightning" came out. Oh, well, that may be stretching it much, but I can't help it. The rest of this cd was quite hard to compile. Plenty of tracks were cut, but I'm happy with the results, as I think I gathered their best "pure black metal era" and post-ATHOW material, and almost all of their discography is represented here... alas, there is no track from "Battles in the North", as I thought no track from that album could replace the ones I choose. Have fun!
