Delivering just five tracks in 45 minutes on their 19th album, Eternal Hails, these Norwegian black metal legends remain defiantly and eternally Darkthrone.
These longer, doomier songs reflect drummer Fenriz’s love of doom. What he and co-conspirator Nocturno Culto have concocted here stretches back even further than discovering black metal, to the sounds of the ‘70s and the sounds of bands playing with more expansive themes. These influences didn’t just make the songs longer, it made them an entirely different beast. However Darkthrone’s sound may evolve, they remain revered and respected with fans spanning every genre. Darkthrone remain unique.
