Since the fiery birth of its second wave in early ’90s Scandinavia, black metal has sought to be a portal to the otherworld, the beyond – and often, beyond The Beyond. Divergent strains have certainly cropped up since, but Sweden’s LUSTRE has long explored the hinterlands of the black metal imagination and consistently with breathtaking results. A lone dreamer, mainman Nachtzeit solidified his unique muse with his very first release, the Serenity EP in 2008, and never looked back once…only beyond.
“Another Time, Another Place (Chapter One)” is the first out of two compilation albums featuring the long awaited, never before released EP “The Ardour of Autumn” from 2013, as well as the well received EP “Welcome Winter” from 2009.
The two MCD’s featured on this release were specifically chosen to portray the autumn seasons transition to winter. With four tracks clocking in at around 40 minutes in total, “Another Time, Another Place (Chapter One)” consists of some of the most coveted material from the rather substantial discography of Ambient Black Metal pioneers LUSTRE.
