While I'm sceptical of the Darkthrone hype machine, this seems to be older material of value. Has anyone heard it yet?

Well, the demos have been bootlegged to infinity, in addition to having been in Audiofile for some time.  This release is there as well. 

The "live in Denmark" appears to be from the same (or a similar) show as appeared on The Roots of Evilness bootleg.  We all know where the Goatlord tracks come from, but they might be nice to hear without Fenriz's useless vocals.  Have little clue if the instrumental version has already been distributed widely or not.

There is nothing terribly pressing about their earliest material...DT are one of those bands who developed with time and age.  Given the general availability of most of this stuff, I think "hype machine" is a good way to characterize the motivation behind this release.
