DARKTHRONE – Transilvanian Hunger, [VINYL] 1994,($1200-$1400)

Darkthrone’sTransilvanian Hunger” is one of the diamonds of Norwegian Black Metal. Its’ first issue in vinyl has a very high collectible value which is increasing more and more as time goes by.

Transilvanian Hunger” was released in February of 1994 and it was Darkthrone’s 4th album. It is estimated that there was only a few copies printed, not more than 300 something  that makes it highly hard to find and expensive.

The highest price that the record has been sold is 1449 US dollars in October of 2013 from Discogs.

Transilvanian Hunger” has been characterized as “Cold as Ice” mainly because of the album because of its’ atmosphere. In 2017 the Rolling Stone magazine ranked it number 85 of the 100 best Metal albums of all time. It’s a creation of Fenriz who has written all the music and plays all the instruments. Nocturno Culto, added the vocals and in 4 songs Varg Vikernes, of one man band Burzum, has written the lyrics, who hadn’t been yet sentenced for the murder of Euronymous.

The original press had “Norsk Arisk Black Metal” (Norwegian Aryan Black Metal”) written on the back cover. Due to the  negative responce  by distributors, the phrase was replaced with “True Norwegian Black Metal” in all later pressings.

We estimate that the price for “Transilvanian Hunger” will raise more within the next years. We believe that in this period a good price for an NM copy is from 1200 to 1400 US dollars.
