Complete your Marduk collection. This sounds awesome, I just picked this up yesterday at my nearby music store along with "Opus Nocturne" the following album by Marduk released just 1 year after this and produced by Dan Swano. Everything about this re-issue is great except that the cover art image is very dark and quite hard to see all the details even under a bright light.
Those of the Unlight is the title of the second studio album by Swedish black metal band Marduk. It was released in October 1993 by Osmose Productions, and reissued in digipak format on April 4, 2006 by Regain Records, with bonus videos of three songs performed live on August 12, 1993. It is the first album the band produced in a proper black metal style, as opposed to the blackened death metal approach of their 1992 debut, Dark Endless.
Tracklist: 1. Darkness Breeds Immortality, 2. Those Of The Unlight, 3. Wolves, 4. On Darkened Wings, 5. Burn My Coffin, 6. A Sculpture Of The Night, 7. Echoes From The Past, 8. Stone Stands It’s Silent Vigil. 2. Those Of The Unlight. 4. On Darkened Wings. 6. A Sculpture Of The Night. 7. Echoes From The Past. 8.
With their second album Those Of the Unlight, Marduk adopted a purely black metal sound before eventually shifting gears into war metal territory. But enough of that, let’s get down to business. Marduk play raw, savage black metal that is characterized by fast tempos, bruising riffs and Joakim Gothberg’s signature scream. However, Marduk isn’t afraid of implementing a few catchy hooks, heart whelming melodies or seven minute ambient instrumentals (Echoes From the Past) into their overtly aggressive sound. Although I arrived a few years late at Marduk’s Those Of The Unlight bash, I revel in my lost time by getting acquainted with their back catalog. This is a supreme black metal record that should be heard by just about everyone that considers him/herself a BM enthusiast. Not Carnifex though, GTFO.
Marduk " Those of the unlight " (full album). First album of these Fucks I bought was the double disc live CD. Thought the art was cool. And yet I still wonder why the pain death riders' head is covered by the logo on this album! God damnit! But this album is their best. 4 months ago. So much more true feeling with regard to black metal ethos than any bands releases in recent times.

While Those of the Unlight blasts Marduk's requisite evil riffs and classic black metal vocals, the album takes a more depressing tone lyrically. By the time the listener is drowned in the brooding despair that is "Echoes From the Past", it is clear that Marduk have evolved as a band. Where they actually trying to experiment with this album? Who knows but the next two tracks "Those of the Unlight" and "Wolves" are their best songs. Especially "Wolves" where it captures the archetype black metal riffing and doom-ish breakdowns and some wait, what's this? Psychadelic rock guitar solo?
But when Marduk recorded Those of the Unlight back in 1993, black metal wasn't as diverse as it would later become; therefore, the more abrasive and brutish black metallers didn't feel a need to tell you what set them apart from keyboards-loving black metallers. And the word "brutish" definitely describes Those of the Unlight, which maintains the spirit of rawness that characterized its predecessor, Dark Endless.
