Darkthrone – Old Star review

leave a comment »

For the review of Darkthrone’s new album, Old Star, we decided to try something different at The Metal Wanderlust and get more than one staff member writing about it. Here are my thoughts on the album

Let me start by saying that I am partial to Darkthrone’s music starting from The Cult is Alive. Many pioneering metal bands have fallen into the trap of giving into the current trends and altering their sound, I’m glad that Darkthrone have not done so. The band decided not to care about their reputation as black metal legends and make music that they wanted.

On Old star, their now signature black and roll sound is still intact. Alp Man was one of the stand out tracks for me. Another being Duke of Gloat. Both songs have crushing riffs. The band continue to remain uncompromising in their sound and the production is raw, which will appeal to their casual fans and hardcore ones alike. The album will definitely be part of my “Best of” list at the end of the year.
