5.0 out of 5 stars Black metal rebooted 15 May 2009
By R.B.
Format:Audio CD
For more than a decade Darkthrone were rooted firmly in the centre of the black metal genre which they helped to spawn. Then, at some point after the new millennium, they became utterly disenchanted with the movement and began instead to gravitate back towards the stripped-down hard rocking sound of the classic metal and punk bands from the 1980s. And so in 2008 we get the fine-tuned result of that shift: "Dark Thrones and Black Flags".

The new album is presented as a straight-ahead rock'n'roll album. Considering the dirty words that "Rock 'n' Roll" have become in elite metal circles, the stripped-down 3 minute song approach is probably the greatest piece of rebellion from the band since they handed the pre-masters of "A Blaze in the Northen Sky" in to Peaceville, so many years ago.

Vintage techniques are rendered modern in every track on the album. VENOM-ous death gallops pull up sharp for ringing, plectrum-hand-in-the-air Thin Lizzy power chords, which in turn flatten and bend under their own Candlemassive heaviness for a brief introspection of overcast doom riffage. Throw in some boxy garage-space percussion, and a spartan eight-channel mix, and you have an authentic mid-80s demo tape. Bottled, stored, and buried in the cellar, to be exhumed and released as vintage goods in 2008.

And here lies the strength of "New" Darkthrone: the absolute emphasis on versatility, coupled with an understated expertise in their chosen field. As old bands jump the now overloaded black metal ark to reinvent themselves in new musical spheres, Darkthrone have instead taken what they know already and shifted it on its axis.

4.0 out of 5 stars metal-punk 22 Oct 2008
Format:Audio CD
This album is darkthrone continuing with the style in FOAD it does however take more listens to really get into than FOAD. its still quite a refreshing and enjoyable album and isnt depressing which black metal can be. standout tracks for me so far include hiking metal punks and hanging out in haiger every song has something about it the title track is a instrumental piece. this isnt 'trendy' metal this is filthy metal with a punk vibe

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect party music, purchase now 12 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Now I was excited when I heard `A Blaze in the Northern Sky' and `Under a funeral Moon' but this... this is absolutely knock you back amazing. This is music to play at parties, it really is. Sure it is violent but it swings, it has groove, it is what rock n roll would have sounded like if it had evolved in a dank and dirty pit.

Why more bands don't go along with this punk attitude of doing what they like is beyond me, this is what it should be about. I got into metal and rock because it was meant to signify freedom and celebrate difference not to be conformist sheep who wallow in genre boundaries, as so many do Darkthrone excel at being themselves by going in whatever direction they want, so much so that even if they did a duet with Britney Spears on x factor and then recorded an album of pop songs, they would still sound better and more true than a bunch of conformist, make the same black metal album thirty times, idiots.

So this album is basically unwashed rock n roll dripping with punk, held down by black metal, perfect for a right jolly night and a must for fans of music.

The Winds They Called the Dungeon Shaker: This has a dawn of metal type feel to it, early Sabbath, Judas Priest and Motorhead, mixed in with the power metal type cry of `the dungeon shaker' make for a stunningly exciting track.

Death of all Oaths (Oath Minus): The drums pound on this track and the vocals recall black metal progenitors Venom. The guitars give a nice pulsing drive to the songs initial stages and a nice early Doom feel towards the latter stages of the song before finishing with those pulsing drums again.

Hiking Metal Punks: Darkthrone's ode to hiking is a full speed ahead squealing beast, its... dare I say it?... fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is Darkthrone...plain and simple. 27 Jan 2009
By R. S. Ravenwolf - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I find it difficult to believe that anyone listening to a Darkthrone album would be offended or put off by any sort of change in their sound. Darkthrone have always done what they wanted to do, when they wanted to do it. First they were death metal, then they tried black metal and now they play what is really a hybrid of both styles with some thrash and punk mixed in. And what is wrong with this? The band that never seemed to change was changing all of the time. The faithful Darkthrone fans saw this and never cared. "Darkthrone is Darkthrone" they would say. Others, who were on the outside of the beast, would sit and stare, wondering what the appeal was.

"What is the appeal?" you ask. The appeal is this: Darkthrone play for themselves. They play music that is real and genuine, without any pretense or cloak of glamour. If you don't like them, they really don't care. This is why they have never really made it out of the underground but, as they have spoken many times, they don't care. This is the kind of attitude you will get with this album. It's punkish, brash, heavy and alltogether enjoyable. The songs and production are all very primitive sounding, much like F.O.A.D., but even more primitive. Fenriz and Nocturno Culto have transcended the "black metal" scene and become a style of music all their own. Some may hate it, some may love it, but Darkthrone are Darkthone.
4.0 out of 5 stars Darkthrone 28 Mar 2013

What can be said about Darkthrone, pioneers of Norwegian Black Metal.
Alot of people dont know but Darkthrone really really early in their career had a big punk influence and alot of the songs on this album if not the whole thing has that again.
I'm not sure about the masses but I really enjoyed this album it was nice to hear that these guys after all these years can still pull off something new and fresh.
Now for those who are true fans will enjoy this album but for those who just enjoy the the Thrashy/Deathy Black Metal that thses guys made famous they may not enjoy this album as much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Freacking Finally!!! 7 April 2009
By Lukeflesh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Don't want to 'tout' myself because I can't stand arrogant pud's, but I remember banging my head and raising the fists to Soulside Journey on cassette! Darkthrone's Soulside and A Blaze were absolutely revolutionary years ago and still hold the same torch today! I personally couldn't find much of the same luster in all the albums in between. Don't get me wrong there has been some good songs released here n' there, but nothing quite like a complete new album, sound, and direction that this one has taken me on! I love this new stuff! Don't care what they call it - It's rock n' roll for the soul! Fenriz' mix on vocals are so welcomed - you know he was a wizard with the Isengard projects! I have a hard time finding any metal that is worth 2 cents! This stuff is the bomb! Thank you Throne - Eternal Hails!! WAR ON!! \m/ ^ ^ \m/
