Black Vinyl Edition 12". Contains pre-album rehearsal recordings featuring songs which would eventually materialise on the iconic, genre-defining album, A Blaze in the Northern Sky.
The Wind of 666 Black Hearts Volume One sees a return to the early days of the highly influential Norwegian black metal legends, featuring tracks from rehearsals conducted in 1991, as the band forged their way to black metal notoriety with a vast transformation in style between their early death metal offerings to a stripped down, completely raw, cold and chaotic sound which was set to take the world of extreme metal to new unexplored depths.
Contained on this release are tracks which would go on to feature on the classic A Blaze in the Northern Sky album, with a rehearsal featuring the line-up of Nocturno Culto, Fenriz, Zephyrous & Dag Nilsen performing infamous tracks such as 'In the Shadow of the Horns' and A Blaze in the Northern Sky in their most raw form.
The recordings were taken from the band’s rehearsal place in Vinterbro, located directly south of Gjersjøen lake that separates Vinterbro from Kolbotn.
