    The quality of this bootleg is "what people expect to be a really good reissue". It’s really TOP quality that's for sure. Actually, it looks like the "official" issue. Fantastic quality of print/cover, poster, inner sleeve + sound - that's the truth. Maybe one of the best bootlegs I have seen in the past decade if we speak about quality!

      I bought two copies of this release, one from eBay (Sep 2022) and one from Discogs (Feb 2023). First has a matte jacket and second has glossy. The print quality is nearly-identical on both (the contrast is slightly better on the glossy, but you can only tell if you put them side-by-side). For those interested, I confirm that the quality of this release is amazing in all respects. You can immediately tell that a lot of effort has been put into this bootleg. I generally don’t recommend bootlegs, but in this case, I’d make the ("what they were thinking") official reissue a frisbee and stick with this one!

        Definitely a killer unofficial release and one you must get! All the artwork is super high quality and accurate to the original! I am someone who never goes for a unofficial release unless it is essential! This LP sounds good! Plenty of crackles and pops on my LP but they are pretty easy to ignore and expected from a unofficial release. Besides not like official releases are any better these days! So happy to own this classic Black Metal behemoth on wax finally in a good presentation! Every song is a great one, and the writing and production on here are perfect in my opinion! Grab them wherever you can find them before they are gone for good! I sure as hell know the official label will not be doing original stuff like this anytime soon or maybe ever again.

              I've both releases, Napalm's 2021 reprint and this oneand they sound the same on the turntable, except for some more flattened frequencies.
              The artwork is well reproduced unless for the sideprint that miss.
              A great choice to spend not a big amount of money to obtain a timeless masterpiece.

                2 different sleeve editions of same pressings: matte & glossy.

                I think the matte edition came first in early autumn 2022 September/October. I bought glossy edition in November/December 2022. Same layout but slightly different colour shades. The matte edition coversleeve is like
                same quality as Burzum 2022 replicas. Glossy is nice too, but my personal opinion the (first?) matte
                edition was looking more "professional".

                  Really well made bootleg! They really put effort into this. No need to make rainbow coloured double LP`s in gatefolds when the original wasn`t such either. I bet that most people would rather buy this one than the reissue. I really hope that they make more of these cause this album should not be expensive or hard to find.

                    So happy to finally have this album with the original album art, and it sounds damn good.

                      This is the one to get! Amazing reproduction of the artwork and mastered correctly for vinyl. Someone finally did the job that Satyricon/Napalm refused to do. Same goes for the Burzum/Burzum 2022 unofficial reissue, which is likely done by the same person/team.

                      I am not usually a fan of unofficial releases but these kind of "fan" reissues are a game-changer for high quality replicas that companies like Back on Black fail with. Their Burzum presses still use poor quality algorithmic upscaled artwork. I would like to see more effort put in to artwork reproduction. Now these AI upscalers are doing an amazing job of adding detail in high res we should hopefully see some improved reissues at some point.
