1994. Transilvanian Hunger

 is the fourth album by Norwegian black metal band Darkthrone. Transilvanian Hunger was the band’s first album to be recorded with just two members, Nocturno Culto and Fenriz, following the departure of Zephyrous. The band would remain a duo from this point onwards.

The back cover of the album states that “Darkthrone is for all the evil in man”. Fenriz appears on the cover artwork, which bears resemblance to Mayhem’s 1993 live album Live in Leipzig.

Lyrics for four of the album’s songs were written by the infamous Norwegian black metal musician Varg Vikernes. Vikernes was imprisoned in 1993 for the murder of Mayhem guitarist Øystein “Euronymous” Aarseth and for the arson of several churches.

The ending of the song “As Flittermice As Satans Spys” contains a backmasked message; when the voice is played in reverse, it utters the phrase “In the name of God, let the churches burn.”
