Bal-Sagoth - Starfire Burning upon the Ice-Veiled Throne of Ultima Thule

Elync's Recommended Winter Listening List Pt. II

Ah, epic black metal. Seriously my favorite form of the genre. This album gives off the feeling of marching in a war-ravaged snow field, sword and axe at your side, and blood on your hands.

Slay some dragons while listening to this album.

  2. "To Dethrone the Witch-Queen of Mytos K'unn (The Legend of the Battle of Blackhelm Vale)" – 6:45

It would have been a good download, if only the tracks didn't contain their full titles. Because of that you can't even extract the files to HD.
