From Black Metal to Crustcore! (Darkthrone: Fuck Off & Die)
That's right, from purveyors of the blackest metal to crustcore! Although these Norwegians began life as a death metal act (see Soulside Journey), Darkthrone quickly jumped onto the burgeoning black metal scene and went on to release such lo-fi classics such as Transylvanian Hunger, Under A Funeral Moon & Panzerfaust.
But not content with making the fooking unholiest of lo-fi rackets whilst wearing tons of bad corpse paint, Darkthrone released this last year. Counfounding fans & critics alike, their new sound is more crustcore than black metal. Fuck Off & Die can best be described as Hellhammer duetting with Motorhead in a garage! Utterly in keeping with the lo-fi & unproduced feel of their records, Darkthrone is quite possibly the epitome of what underground metal should sound like - raw, uncompromising & fooking brutal!
