Norwegian metal veterans Darkthrone are working on their album, the follow-up to The Underground Resistance (read The Underground Resistance review). According to Fenriz, the duo is half way finished on the record and Nocturno Culto will sing on the entire album which is more on the “heavy/black metal” side.
Fenriz commented: “Yes we have half way finished our new album. Yes we have our old rehearsal place back (recorded there: Snowfall/A New Dimension demo + Thulcandra demo). Our style this time is as usual from Ted, stern heavy/black metal. Personally I changed the style from speed metal before to Slow Heavy Metal, and I have four albums representing that: first Dream Death album, Black Sabbath Mob Rules, first Candlemass album and second Sacrilege album. Ted will sing on the entire album and that was a decision made by me after hearing the Anguish Mountain album from last year. What am I listening to right now? The vinyl of Mercenary by Bolt Thrower. YES it has annoying bass drum sound, but all the riffs are great.”
