A seldom discussed Norwegian classic; which is your favorite album?

My vote goes towards the Curse of Mankind. Quite hefty in length but doesn't let up for a minute. The album is saturated in melancholy yet still manages to come off as epic and even grandiose at times (e.g., the third track, "The Starlit Waters / I, the Mountain"). But enough about what I think, I'm interested to hear your thoughts...

Definitely NOT the demos.

As the Wolves Gather gets my vote but the old trinity of Wolves/Sjel/Curse is pretty untouchable.

I concur about the demos - they are/were pretty poor in comparison to other things coming out at the time, and lacked anything that made them memorable in any manner.

The CD box that was released several years ago is worth trying to get a hold of, as the albums haven't been altered or remastered (to my knowledge at least), and listening to them in this context certainly makes "The Curse of Mankind" stand out.

I personally quite enjoyed "The Race of Cain", but that seems to be a minority opinion.

Joyless albums are a total write off - mainly due to the fucking awful female vocals. Just terrible.

Yes. The demos are what demos actually are: a demonstation of material. On the albums the songs show their true power.

Joyless is pretty weird band. Unlimited Hate is for sure one of the strangest albums I have, but the re-made versions of couple older classic FW tunes are quite bad.

Great band! No vote 'cause of confusion.
I have the Baklengs mot stupet 3cd box and haven't listened to that in a while. I couldn't say which is best because I tend to listen to that release in it's entirity.

As the Wolves Gather was one of the first more underground Black Metal releases I ever heard so it holds a special place in my record collection. The Curse of Mankind doesn't fall back at all though.

Sjell av Natten is good too but I listen to it rarely.

Such an amazing band. I love all 3 of their classic releases but I'll vote for Curse seeing as its the most ambitious and developed. Sounds more like Burzum than Burzum in places. Just a fucking brilliant album.

The Curse of Mankind shares a similar sentiment for me as it was the first black metal vinyl I'd ever purchased. Nice to hear I'm not the only one who started off on such a high note!

You are not the only one, personally I don't get why all the hate. The only thing I didn't like was the digi with such pixelated cover art

Amazing band, definitely one of my favorite Norwegian bands. Haven't heard the demos, but everything else is great. Voted for Curse of Mankind, but As the Wolves Gather is very much on par in terms of excellence.

Edit: Anyone know if they are working on anything new?

I think that I have both versions of the cover release, but yes, the original version is pretty poor. In saying that, however, high resolution art has never really been the band's forte, and even the demos, back when they were released, were very poorly done in comparison to, well, pretty much everything. The enlargements on the demo picture LP look really bad too.

I'm looking at the digibook now, what's the problem? Pixelated? I think you just don't get the point of the thing.
And I will say it once again - this is some perfectly executed norwegian black metal on this album. The sound si a choice.
