Worthless box set, was this really done by Peaceville? Because it looks more like Nuclear War Now! made it, they are specialized on creating box sets full of bullshit material.

Not completely sure as even by the cover alone as well as some contents, this release has some genuine things going for it. Box sets seem to go either way in aesthetics and content that is viable. This time this one has shown me how more live shows they performed and recorded (unless paying off or stealing back bootlegs) than previously known.

Lots of people back during Soulside Journey's release seem to cherish this out of their discography too.

I am, like any decent person with good taste, a big enjoyer of Darkthrone's Death Metal era but this isn't definitely worth it, specially not for that price they're selling it.

Yolo. At least it wouldn't be the end of the world if it doesn't work out. Or just go for the og material.

Best comment on Peaceville's post about this on Facebook:

Do you annually pick up Fenriz by the legs and shake him upside down to see if any more old demo tapes fall out of his pockets? "Come on Fenriz.. we need to pay the fuckin rent".

So a remaster - which generally sounds worse than the original, a demo and a bunch of crap for £150? Wow.

Their old stuff is better.

If they are doing this with Soulside Journey, imagine what's going to happen in the next three years when we'll have the 30-year anniversaries of the true classics. Peaceville will find the forgotten tapes of Fenriz farting during the recording of A Blaze In The Northern Sky and they will put them in limited edition wooden box, digitally remastered, and with liner notes of Fenriz himself explaining what he had eaten before each fart.

I wasn't expected so much hate in the comment section about this box-set!
If you don't like it - don't buy it - move along babies and stop crying!

This release is dedicated for serious collectors and Darkthrone fans.
Especially for those who are interested in the early period of Darkthrone music.

Personally I think it contains lots of cool stuff!
