Tsjuder – Desert Northern Hell (2013)
Season of Mist
Review by Jude Felton
If you were to imagine the perfect Norwegian Black Metal album, you could do a lot worse than to conjure up Desert Northern Hell. This beast epitomizes all that you could want from a BM album; bleak, brutal, raw and decidedly evil, it is quite the behemoth. Originally released back in 2004, this is the third album from Tsjuder and it has just been re-released by Season of Mist. Rather than any sort of cynical cash-in though, this edition also comes complete with 4 bonus live tracks, which were recorded in 2001, and the big addition is the inclusion of the complete Norwegian Apocalypse DVD.
