i bought the original release of this back in '94 and dug it. strangely i dig it way more now.
what is particularly nice about this 10 year anniversary reissue is that it includes a bonus track 'mine heart doth beseech thee', which originally appeared on a compilation when horde was going as 'beheadoth'. fuck black metal (or the silly unblack in this case), but this bonus track has always been a fave of mine, no matter the genre.
'hellig usvart' was reissued yet again a couple of years ago with some tracks from the 'live in oslo' cd added on, but missing the beheadoth track..and quite honestly its better to have the entire live in oslo cd by itself. enjoy.
