Good thing that these two have slowed down on that primitive and repetitive Black Metal! Since a few albums now, all they were doing was to count the year and the album. With this new release Fenriz and Nocturno Culto step into the more brutal side of Heavy Metal, with a lot of accents on the primitive Thrash that was played some 20 years ago, something like today’s’ AURA NOIR. The voices no longer seem as throaty, I’d say they’re more yelled, but the entire album seems to be recorded in a garage, or a barrel. The track that names the album seems somewhat more consistent, but nothing else. It must be mentioned that the booklet presents a few photographs of the two members and a few relatively interesting comments for that fans. Despite the cult band reputation, DARK THRONE are stagnating for years now from an artistic standpoint and all that they do today is based on their long gone glory days, the new albums being just another hope that something interesting could have been released… Hope dies last!
