Darkthrone The Underground Resistance on Import LP
Norwegian legends Darkthrone have completed work on their latest album The Underground Resistance, which is set for release on Peaceville Records. The Underground Resistance is Darkthrone’s latest venture through the metal cosmos, and first new album since their 2010 opus Circle the Wagons.
A continuation of the free-spirited metallic lands the duo of Fenriz & Nocturno Culto have been roaming for a long time, The Underground Resistance contains Darkthrone’s trademark masterful riffing in a broad range of styles, effortlessly bounding through the annals of classic metal, taking in thrash, speed and black metal, and not forgetting a dose of punk.
All in all a ferocious and dynamic set of tracks drenched in Fenriz’s & Nocturno’s rich and diverse tastes in all things metal, primarily those rooted firmly in the spirit of the 80’s. 6 tracks long, and every one an epic in itself, this is undoubtedly Darkthrone’s strongest outing of late.
The Underground Resistance was written and recorded from the spring of 2010 to the summer 2012 at Necrohell 2 studios by the band themselves. The album was mastered by Jack Control at Enormous Door, Texas. Cover artwork also comes courtesy of the iconic and celebrated artist Jim Fitzpatrick.
Darkthrone began life in the late 80’s as a thrash/death metal act and progressed through technical death/doom metal experimentation to become legends of the black metal world and one of the original leading bands of the Norwegian scene, as well as inspiring a whole generation of metal bands.
"One of their best...a glorious return." - Metal Hammer 9/10
