Promo for 'Lesser Men', taken from 'The Underground Resistance', filmed, directed and edited by Lowe Seger.
'The Underground Resistance' is Darkthrone's latest venture through the metal cosmos, & first new album since the 2010 opus 'Circle the Wagons'. A continuation of the free-spirited metallic lands the duo of Fenriz & Nocturno Culto have been roaming for a long time, 'The Underground Resistance' contains Darkthrone's trademark masterful riffing in a broad range of styles, effortlessly bounding through the annals of classic metal, taking in thrash, speed & black metal, & not forgetting a dose of Punk. All in all a ferocious & dynamic set of tracks drenched in Fenriz's & Nocturno's rich & diverse tastes in all things metal, primarily those rooted firmly in the spirit of the 80's. 6 tracks long, & every one an epic in itself, this is undoubtedly Darkthrone's strongest outing of late.
'The Underground Resistance' was written & recorded spring 2010 to summer 2012 at Necrohell 2 studios by the band themselves. The album was mastered by Jack Control at Enormous Door, Texas USA. Cover artwork also comes courtesy of the iconic & celebrated artist Jim Fitzpatrick.
"3 songs each, Ted's are flown from the universe of metal with his strongest voice ever so far. Songs of mine are torn from the wombs of the riders of rohan of metal; safely cradled in 1985 style"
Fenriz, December 2012
Darkthrone began life in the late 80's as a thrash/death metal act & progressed through technical death/doom metal experimentation to become legends of the black metal world & one of the original leading bands of the Norwegian scene, as well as inspiring a whole generation of metal bands.
