Darkthrone - Old Star CD
The Norwegian Black Metal legends 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 and often infamous history. In their formative years, Darkthrone initially started making their mark with a strong concoction of thrash and 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 became history.
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 rift, the Norwegian legends cut through six new epic tracks, taking in the best of the old school of heavy and extreme metal plus a large dose of doom-laden riffing, and channelling it through the grime of the underground.
