A press release informs me that Century Media — as a way to celebrate Black (Metal) Friday — will re-issue two classic albums.
To be reissued are Borknagar’s The Olden Domain and Mayhem’s De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas. Damn. I mean…classic album is an understatement.
Limited to 1,000 copies each, these titles will be available only at your local independent music store starting on November 23.
The Olden Domain is Borknagar’s second studio album, and their first to feature English lyrics.
Songwriting for De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas began as early as 1987, but due to the suicide of vocalist Per “Dead” Ohlin and murder of guitarist Øystein “Euronymous” Aarseth, the album’s release was delayed until May of 1994.
The album’s widely considered one of the most influential black metal albums of all time.
