Carpathian Forest - Through Chasm, Caves & Titan Woods MLP (Black vinyl)


Put out in 1995 on Avantgarde Music (mine being the CD release), this ones got a decade of influence in it, and is still a solid 2nd wave Black Metal outing. Its hard to gauge how influential a record like this is/was, but with out a doubt this is classic early 90's Norwegian Black Metal with clear old school roots, artistic embellishments, but with good style, and intelligence, and what I'd simply dub, "true". Now even though Carpathian Forest have since undergone many changes in style, and have changed their images completely, this album is a major release, and solidified a general view of them as a great band (no matter how much I might hate general views, this one seems to be in step with my thoughts).
