Darkthrone emerged in the late-80's as a thrash/death metal act and progressed through technical death/doom metal experimentation to become legends of the black metal world inspiring a generation of metal bands in the process. Under A Funeral Moon, Darkthrone's third album, was originally released by Peaceville in 1993. The album is a bleak reflection of contemporary times, featuring harsh guitar riffage and hateful vocals in what was the band's first 100% pure black metal opus. This was aided by an intentionally lo-fi sound that is powerfully cold and entirely unconcerned with modern-day aesthetics. Under A Funeral Moon is the album that many Darkthrone fans hail as the ultimate manifesto for black metal. Marking 30 years of Peaceville and Darkthrone, Under a Funeral Moon is now available as a special limited picture disc vinyl with cut-out sleeve, featuring artwork from the original album inlay painting, with the cover photograph on the reverse side.
