Like many of the other bands that were so instrumental in shaping the sound of black metal's second wave, the wildly influential Darkthrone also walked away from the genre to explore other realms of heaviness. Now, 15 albums in, the band that helped to define a genre with a trio of stellar releases in the '90s returns with The Underground Resistance, an album built from the sounds that influenced them so many years ago. Combining elements of doom, thrash, and speed metal, the album takes the Norwegian duo further away from the gnarly crust punk sounds they've been working in and toward the elemental building blocks that live at the heart of so much modern metal. Filled with galloping percussion, grinding riffs, and a sense of reckless abandon, Darkthrone's reverence for the sounds spawned by the New Wave of British Heavy Metal comes through loud and clear (but more loud). This makes The Underground Resistance an album that isn't just for fans of Darkthrone, but for all those who dare to call themselves fans of heavy metal, and it's a celebration of the rawness and heaviness that has made the genre a cathartic touchstone for so many people.
YO WAIT WHAT
Every time the Throne releases an album, there's usually buzz. Some undeserved, specially with the last few.
But THIS? Fenriz and NC break down your front door with battle axes of speed and proceed to assault your pathetic "kitchen" with the righteous heaviness. Soon, you're all drinking beer in what used to be your backyard, now ravaged by flames of roaring blackness. No cross unturned, no head unsnapped by the relentless headbanging that started when you first pressed "play."
YOU NEED THIS IN YOUR LIFE YESTERDAY!
Yup. Just might be perfect. Such an amazing album. Buy this now, don't be dumb.
Buy on cd or vinyl. Great old school metal.
Formed: Oslo, Norway
Years Active: '90s, '00s
