The legendary "Memoria Vetusta I - Fathers of the Icy Age" capture BLUT AUS NORD in the remarkable embryonic phase of an evolutionary process that would culminate in one of Black Metal's great enigmas!
Nearly 25 years since its genesis, the sinister surrealism contained herein remains frozen in time; chilling, breathtaking and awe-inspiring. Universally hailed as a trailblazing classic of the genre, MVI is steeped in the tumultuous youthful passion threaded-red through the very best second-wave Black Metal – a mystical synthesis of soaring melodicism and avant-experimentation which protagonists Vindsval and W.D. Feld have exemplified throughout their storied career.
Finally available again with its original front cover, "Memoria Vetusta I - Fathers of the Icy Age" is canonical primeval Black Metal from another age.
