Norwegian black metal legends one and only Darkthrone, after a long time released the album. I can say that this album has some interesting moments, band itself is known for that all of thier releases are different from another, still it has the unigue atmospehere, that will surely hypnotize all of the listeners.

For the start, there are some influences of doom and heavy metal, all of the album is not typical black metal album, it’s something like black metal but it’s not completly. Riffs are very good, vocals are unigue as usual like on all of thier releases. I can say that there is too much heavy metal influence on this album, it’s more like heavy metal with old school black metal, it made it very unusual, but actualy it’s sounds very good, it has power to it.

Tehnical compliace is very good, as usual this bands has tehnical skills that are more than good, acoustic is great, production is awesome. This band stayed true to themeself’s with this album too. Trough out the history of Darkthrone every album was different. This album has it all, it’s dark as black metal record show be, it has some traditional heavy metal riffs and pure devastation of doom metal, typical great metal record.

Darkthrone as a band, has always be misunderstood, they always liked to experiment with their music, it’s they trademark, that got them to where they are now on metal scene. Quite unusual album, but awesome in many ways. You can like it or not, but this record is evil and wicked in very specific way.

Legendary Norwegian black metal band Darkthrone announces their new album “ Arctic Thunder“, and it is going to realease it in October 14 th via Peaceville Records. The band announces their new on thier Facebook page, and revealed the album cover.  On this record  vocals were performed by Ted Arvid Skjellum, better known as Nocturno Culto. The band labeled the album as “more serious and primitive”. This is a suprise for all the black metal fans, the master of darkness and blakness are back, trough the  crusty, grave-like thrash sound, band is going to seriuosly kick some ass.

Here are the bands annouchment and comments about thier new upcoming album:

Darkthrone, Arctic Thunder

Hi folks, it’s time to talk a bit about our new album – and as I don’t like to talk or write about music much I can say that it is more serious and primitive than usual. Vocals are only done by Ted as I thought this would create a more solemn/introvert atmosphere. The album is called ARCTIC THUNDER because it is my fave bandname (old mega-obscure Norwegian band from the 80s that I asked the permission from to use as an album title). Meanwhile here is the cover, it is from the personal camping archives from a trip some years ago to SPÅLSBERGET in Nordmarka. IT has the usual spruce-tree skyline and also a bonfire – there will be another limited colour version with orange logo and title, because that was MY favourite colour, but the usual release looks like this in silver – as this was Ted’s favourite version.
