Century Media Records is planning on celebrating Black Friday by making it a bit more metal! Dubbing it Black Metal Friday, the record label will be celebrating post Thanksgiving by re-issuing two classic black metal albums available on limited edition vinyl. On Nov. 23rd, you will have the opportunity to snag a copy of Borknagar‘s The Olden Domain as well as Mayhem‘s De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas.
Per the official press release:
“The Olden Domain is Borknagar’s second studio album, and their first to feature English lyrics. It also marks the beginning of the band’s transition to their trademark progressive/folk/black metal sound featured on later records. This would be the band’s last studio album to feature Garm (credited on this album as “Fiery G. Maelstrom”) on vocals. It is also their first album to feature Kai K. Lie on bass, replacing Infernus.”
“Songwriting for De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas began as early as 1987, but due to the suicide of vocalist Per “Dead” Ohlin and murder of guitarist Øystein “Euronymous” Aarseth, the album’s release was delayed until May of 1994. De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas is widely considered to be one of the most influential black metal albums of all time.”
