Tsjuder will reissue their debut EP, ‘Throne of the Goat (1997-2017)‘ on June 8th, 2018. The EP will contain both the original tracks as well as a fresh re-recording of all songs and will be released strictly limited and hand-numbered on CD (2.000 copies) and 1000 vinyl records all editions combined.
As a reminder or introduction for the yet uninitiated, Tsjuder are releasing the re-recorded hellish title-track as a “teaser”-track.
When Tsjuder hit the black metal underground with their first EP, ‘Throne of the Goat‘ in the year 1997, the Norwegians quickly established a strong reputation within their scene. The EP’s ultimate rawness and demo character were balanced off with vitriolic fierceness and the spirit of “trueness” that adherents of this style seek for – rather than polished productions and glossy appearance.
Tsjuder are well aware of their proud heritage and once the trio decided to re-visit ‘Throne of the Goat’ it was clear from the outset that the black soul of the original could not simply be replaced. Therefore ‘Throne of the Goat (1997-2017)‘ comes with both re-recorded versions and the original tracks as a solution for the musicians’ desire for their early work to be heard and preserving the roots.
To this day, Tsjuder stand for Norwegian black metal in its classic harsh and rattling form, yet free from any tedious nostalgia. The venomous throaty vocals of bassist Nag and guitarist Draugluin combine with a relentless blizzard of icy riffing and the pounding hail storm unleashed by drummer Anti-Christian to shape those majestic melodies and sonic structures characteristic for the dark Nordic style.
