23 Years Ago: DARKTHRONE release Transilvanian Hunger (if any man should attempt to criticize this LP...)

Released on this day in 1994. DARKTHRONE's fourth album and, after the controversy that followed, their last on Peaceville for about 12 years.

No other band has been boycotted to such an extent as DARKTHRONE. This feeble attempt to shut us up simply enables us to take this title: The worlds most hated band. We have no problems with that......

Lyrics for the second half of the album are written by Varg Vikernes:

I asked Varg if he wanted to do some lyrics so that he could unleash Nordic art through DARKTHRONE. ON our sixth album "Total Death" we will let 7 people from Black Metal Norway speak through us. Fenriz supports all antichristians. Maybe It from ABRUPTUM would like to speak through DARKTHRONE as well?
