The Norwegian black metal legends Darkthrone mark their return with a sublime new slab of
relentless riffing in the true spirit of the underground.
Over the course of 30 years, Norway's Darkthrone has become a staple
of the global black metal genre, forging a legacy as one of the most
renowned and influential bands in its illustrious & often infamous history.
In their formative years, Darkthrone initially started making their mark
with a strong concoction of thrash & then death/doom metal experimentation,
before the debut album Soulside Journey was unleashed in
1991. Never ones to follow convention or stand still even then, the band
soon embraced a much darker, more primitive form of expression with
the now iconic second album A Blaze in the Northern Sky, & the rest
Now the longstanding duo of Fenriz and Nocturno Culto return with
their first studio album since 2016's hugely popular Arctic Thunder opus,
in the shape of Old Star. With a mastery and endless dedication to the
art of the riff, the Norwegian legends cut through 6 new epic tracks,
taking in the best of the old school of heavy & extreme metal plus a
large dose of doom-laden riffing, & channelling it through the grime of
the underground. Engineering and production duties were all carried
out by vocalist/guitarist Nocturno Culto, complemented with a perfectly
organic mix courtesy of Sanford Parker (Voivod) at Hypercube Studios,
& mastered once more by Jack Control at Enormous Door.
The stellar cover artistry comes courtesy of Chadwick St John, titled
'The Shepherd of the Deep'.
