Darkthrone album review – Arctic Thunder

Album Review

Norway’s capricious duo Darkthrone play musical chairs with new album

Three years ago, The Underground Resistance closed an important phase for Darkthrone – their ‘back to their heavy metal roots’ period, characterised by their heavily referenced riff policy and Fenriz’s howling vocal performance. So the fact that they’ve decided, for the first time since 2003’s Hate Them, to let Nocturno Culto monopolise the microphone and have returned to the old rehearsal room they used back in their demo days to record Arctic Thunder suggests initially that they’ve returned to serious and extreme hunting grounds.
