Totally forgot this was dropping this month! Stoked. Jamming the first track right now and it's a jam for sure. Doubt I'll check the whole thing right now cuz I'm running on E but it sounds promising

Last few minutes of the opener are nasty as hell. Love it!

I went back to page 1after reading your first comment and I thought wth? Hype doesn't seem to dislike it haha.



I'm basically in the same boat as Trey - never could get into these guys. A few decent songs here and there but that's about it for me. Def not bad tho. I think I'm in the minority in thinking the album cover is great lol

Album cover is cool as hell, and actually The Sea Beneath is a pretty quality track. First one I've actually really enjoyed so that's cool.

That one was a huge snoozer, for me at least. The last two tracks were the ones I dug the most

Fenriz thanks [...]

Thank you to friends and fans. Male and Female competitors of biathlon, nordic combined and ski jumpers (not xmas jumpers though).



Any ideas what he means by xmas jumpers?



Loved this record, can't decide if I prefer this one or the previous though.

"Best Darkthrone since The Underground Resistance."



That's a hot take, but I'll accept it xD

“but Darkthrone has the most obvious claim to the title of best long-running black metal band”. Certainly the most prolific. 20 full lengths in 31 years. I like their first the most but can’t say I’ve heard em all

Sowing checking out darkthrone is a wild timeline, love it. The first half of the single on this they released is soooo boring and then the second half is like some of the wildest riffs I’ve heard them play in a minute. Gonna be interesting to see how this stacks up

I find a lot of influences of thrash, punk and doom in their last four releases, which is also what made me listen to them. I started with Artic Thunder and just found out I missed Old Star...



The opener has somewhat a Metallica feel, with acoustic intro, riffs, faster riffs and killer riff outro :D

Check out Sumerlands! I think they’re the best doing that style revival right now

Darkthrone could do a christmas album, featuring Mariah Carey, and somehow they would make it work, LOL.

Edit: Speak of the devil, my physical copy arrived just a few minutes ago. m/m/m/

Alright album. Hopefully it will grow on me



I think Old Star was a perfect balance between doom/black and heavy metal. The last two lean too much towards doom for my taste
