Soulside Journey as their worst album? Seriously!? I’d put that within the top 5. Maybe it’s their worst if you only like black metal but to me that’s a release that can stand up with any Entombed album. That guitar tone killed my family.
I love how out of touch music press people insisted they were a flash in the pan and now they’re popular enough to literally open a store that only sells their merch which is attracting so many people that the district is “blossoming” just from selling the merchandise of one group. This is what I love about them – they’re successful while simultaneously pissing off the press. What more could any group with punk ideology ask for?
