Watch Darkthrone’s “Transilvanian Hunger” played acoustic, get new LP on oxblood vinyl
Darkthrone's 1994 LP Transilvanian Hunger is one of the most classic black metal albums of all time. It's a raw, lo-fi, evil record, but what if it actually sounded gentle and beautiful? As Metal Injection points out, YouTuber mirusbella has answered that very question with a gorgeous, spacious, acoustic cover of the album's title track. mirusbella performed the song in what appears to be an old, abandoned building, and the natural reverb gives it a real haunting effect. It's genuinely cool, as you can see for yourself below.
Meanwhile, Darkthrone have a new album called Eternal Hails on the way, and you can pre-order it on limited edition 180g oxblood vinyl from the BrooklynVegan store. Our stores are the only place in North America to get this colored variant, so grab one before they're gone.
