Starfire Burning Upon the Ice-Veiled Throne of Ultima Thule is Bal-Sagoth's second full-length album, released in November 1996 through Cacophonous Records. This was the last album to feature Jason Porter on bass guitar, as he was replaced by Alistair MacLatchy in December 1996. As with the first album, the band only had around two weeks to record this album.

So yeah, Bal Sagoth are epic, and 16 years later I have yet to hear an album that out-epics Starfire. From the opening instrumental to the one closing it, it's purely epic, icy, barbarous, and galloping fury littered with tasteful breaks where the synths soar to paint you the grandest icy landscapes, hyperborean citadels, and battlefields. Prior to hearing this album, I thought Dream Theater had some pretty complex songwriting. Then came "Starfire Burning Upon The Ice-Veiled Throne Of Ultima Thule", which re-defined the idea of complexity for me. Though it's possible that there may be even more complex things out there, it sure won't be as consistently splendid and awe-inspiring as this and any subsequent Bal-Sagoth album. And by the way, it's epic, too.

Album Starfire Burning Upon the Ice-Veiled Throne of Ultima Thule. The Splendour Of A Thousand Swords Gleaming Beneath The Blazon Of The Hyperborean Empire Lyrics

I also love Fantasy and Bal-Sagoth take Fantasy (as well as Metal music in general) to a new and outstanding level. On a side not, if you're a Rhapsody fan and are thinking of looking into Bal-Sagoth (even if you hate Black Metal), Starfire Burning Upon The Ice-Veiled Throne Of Ultima Thule is a perfect place to start. I consider every single song on this album (including the keyboard intro, interlude and outro) to be absolute perfection. Everything about this release is incredible. From the amazing songwriting to the crisp production, I cannot think of one negative thing to say about this fantasic album.
