The album was released through Impure Creations Records in 1996. The original version was limited to 1000 copies. The album was re-released by Candlelight Records US division in 2005 with the shortened title "Fathers of the Icy Age". The music on the album is atmospheric and at times slightly experimental black metal. Though it's arguably less ambitious than Ultima Thul�e, Vindsval certainly put his late teens towards sharpening himself as one of black metal's strongest composers.
Pure beauty of witches emprisoned in a coffin of ice Pure beauty of their bloody eyes immobilized in the mirror of eternity. 6. day of revenge (the impure blood of theirs). War! Revenge's day has come, Let's spill the blood of the bastard. In front of us the vast towers of the Maganst's castle Pierced the nocturnal beauty of the starry sky The rays of the fullmoon enlighted The sinister gargolyes of stones
Blut Aus Nord’s abstruse style holds erratically on its own terms. To speak of preferences, Ultima Thulée and Memoria Vetusta I: Fathers Of The Icy Age (henceforth just called MV) are in a league of their own. MV constantly unfolds; it is a profound, modular maturation. Topping even that are the twin peaks of this album – The Territory Of Witches and Fathers Of The Icy Age. This is the limit of black metal - when it comes to the genre, I don’t think there is anything until the end of time that will beat these two. They are turbulent, grand songs with frenzied riffing and a vast scope.
Album Memoria Vetusta I: Fathers of the Icy Age. Fathers Of The Icy Age Lyrics. Fathers! From your mighty world Fathers! We saw your tears of gold Messengers in the night! We saw your drawing In the sky Wolves! We heard your song beyond the mountains. We eternally danced on the ruins, in a land of wisdom. We praised the magical knowledge. We were on the wat of blood and fire With a sea of corpses in the valley.
