You know, I almost always hate these things because they don’t have any of the spirit or soul of the originals (see From the Depths of Darkness), but I did always think Thousand Swords is borderline genius music that’s kinda let down by its shitty cardboard sound. It can’t be replaced, but I’ll give this a listen.
Graveland hasn’t done anything to keep me awake since thousand swords. Even that is pretty boring.
Eternal hails to Celtic Winter though.
I don’t get DM.org’s obsession with that demo. I’d rather listen to any of the norse BM Celtic Winter was ripping off (come on, half the demo is variations on the first Funeral Fog riff) than Celtic Winter.
to add to this: In The Glare… is a lot better. Its shoddier sound gives it a saturated edge that’s much more powerful than the sterile Irish Winter album
It’s subjective, really.
But nothing beats ‘the gates of the kingdom of darkness’ for me
Mainly, it’s when Graveland went full NS (read: full retard) that they got shit. When it turned from the Majesty of darkness to the Majesty of some grossly0idealized picture of volkish history.
Sounds pretty cool. Old (post-Celtic winter) Graveland went too far with shitty productions anyway.
