Format: Audio CD
The prolific and enigmatic Darkthrone are back for another assault on ear drums worldwide. This legendary Black Metal duo have continued the stylistic change first heard on releases like 'The Cult Is Alive' and the 'Too Old Too Cold' E.P., moving from cold, impersonal Black Metal to a punkier, almost Black N' Roll sound. F.O.A.D. is the next step in this evolution, drawing inspiration from old Burzum, Iron Maiden and Manilla Road (more in spirit than in sound, it has to be said) and, of course, Celtic Frost and Venom. Opening track 'These Shores Are Damned' is a statement of intent from the outset, with it's grimly rocking riffs and melancholy key changes towards the end. 'Canadian Metal', a tribute to that country's metal underground and the bands it spawned is a suitable Black Metal anthem for it's subject matter, but the real gems of this album are the attitude-laced punk and rock n' roll influenced tracks. 'The Church Of Real Metal' is suitably malevolant and strangely melodic with it's duel-solo latter half, whilst the title track and the spitefully arrogant 'Raised On Rock' are satisfyingly spiky and elitist. The last two songs of the album are more conventional, more reminiscent of early Black Metal in style, but no less satisfying for that. 'Pervertor Of The 7 Gates' is a more traditional Black Metal dirge, with it's cold, sinister intro and fractured verse riff, whilst 'Wisdom Of The Dead' relies on embittered, Burxum-esque riffs to carry the listener back to the hallowed days of True Norwegian Black Metal. The music aside, F.O.A.D. is a unique outing for Darkthrone in the sense that the album sleeve features a full colour photograph on each page, with some great shots of Fenriz, Nocturno Culto and the Norwegian forests, along with a short description of the thought processes and influences behind each song. It may be a cliche but, like a fine wine, Darkthrone really do improve with age.

Stripped back Heavy Metal from the dawn of time and another perfectly formed slice of genius in the Darkthrone collection. This one can be loosely described as Venom and Motorhead having a drinking contest with Black Sabbath refereeing the whole thing, it may sound too good to be true but that really is what you get.

The tidal wave of sound and fury ebbs and flows in a way that makes you headbang like crazy loon, it may sound weird but it is truly life affirming stuff; the riffs, the vocals all combine to make you smile, to make you happy and to make you punch the air.

The lo-fi scuzz is a true joy in the face of so much overproduction on CD's today and actually ends up adding quite a bit of weight to the sound, and giving it a nice coldness. All Darkthrone albums are worth getting, even if it is just for the sheer excitement and rush you get from not knowing what they are going to do next. Well worth the investment. Rock on metal fans.

i bought this album as a first from dark throne it wasnt what i expected its not your typical norwegion death metal but still a damn good album mainly for fans of the genre which is why i give this a 4 star rating if the likes of maiden and metallica rock your boat then this album is not for you but if you appreciate good black metal then its a must . . good value and the production isnt bad either

Sorry, I forgot metal wasn't supposed to be fun to listen to 2 Oct. 2007
By Alexander M. Wynn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
So it's obvious at this point that every time Darkthrone puts out a new album, there will be those "tr00 cvlt" folks who hate everything that came after Transylvanian Hunger crapping all over their "new sound"...and by the way, there really is nothing more evil than - gasp! - intentionally misspelling words on the internet! But I digress; with their newest album, F.O.A.D., Fenriz and Nocturno Culto continue with their Celtic Frost/Motorhead/Sabbath worship that has characterized their sound starting when they decided it was OK for album covers to have color on them. Gone are the blastbeats and arpeggiated minor chords, the all-bloodcurdling-scream vocal style, the raw-to-downright godawful recording quality of Darkthrone's classic period. This does not evoke the images of frostbitten forests and Satanic rituals that they used to; instead, what we have here is beer-swilling, headbanding, leather, denim & spikes METAL, but still retaining that sick death-obsessed evil twist that Darkthrone has always had.

Being a huge fan of those first four albums - Panzerfaust especially - I will say that I really like what these dudes are doing nowadays. There's no way to compare F.O.A.D. to Under A Funeral Moon, and no point in trying; Darkthrone do whatever they want, and at this point they want to pay tribute to the early metal gods who got them (and all of the original Norwegian black metal bands) into this in the first place. As far as the album itself goes, it sure isn't perfect. Lyrically it is often just plain dumb, and musically it is spotty at times. But when it works, as it more often than not does, it works real well. The guitars still have that deathlike distortion to them that you've heard ever since A Blaze In The Northern Sky, just put through a classic metal filter. The opener, "These Shores Are Damned" features some excellent, slightly doomy riffs that would have fit right in on Morbid Tales or To Mega Therion. The next track, "Canadian Metal", is one of the album's highlights, albeit with some pretty unusual (and specific) subject matter. Fenriz sings this one, I believe, although it might as well be Thomas Gabriel Warrior on the microphone. The chorus is a total fist-pumper, and Nocturno Culto even throws in a King Diamond/ Rob Halford-like falsetto wail toward the end! You ain't gonna hear that on the new Marduk album. "The Church of Real Metal" and "The Banners of Old" have some Sabbath-like dirges, and the title track, also sung by Fenriz (this time doing his best Lemmy impression), is a more upbeat thrasher that tells you exactly what you can do if you aren't with Darkthrone. "Splitkein Fever" has a really raw sound that harkens back to the band's early days, but musically doesn't do that much for me; I'd say it's a contender for weakest track on the album. "Raised on Rock" is another one championing the music the guys love, and has a definite Motorhead/ Venom feel. "Pervertor of the 7 Gates" reminds me a bit of Hellhammer's "Triumph of Death", and again showcases some uncannily realistic Tom Warrior imitation. The final song, "Wisdom of the Dead" ends the proceedings on a morbid, dirgey note, reminding potential naysayers that just because the band doesn't recycle the sound of their first four albums, doesn't mean they've turned into Stryper. This isn't gonna earn the band any European Grammy nominations (unlike their friends in Satyricon), but it's tribute music. It's not meant to be groundbreaking, just good, and that it is.

Metal (and Black Metal for that matter) wasn't always about professionalism and maturation, and this is a celebration of that rush of forbidden glee you got when you first heard those songs about sex, drugs, murder and Satan. Sure, Fenriz's attempts to impersonate Lemmy and Tom Warrior might be a little silly, as well as the 8th-grade level of intelligence in a lot of the lyrics, but that's the POINT! None of the classical music keyboard frills or the prog influence that so many BM bands adopted as they grew older. Darkthrone have gone the complete opposite direction, and obviously alienated a lot of their fans. I'm not trying to be one of those elitists who claims to "get" what they're doing, and if you don't like it you just don't understand. I just think it's really refreshing that a Black Metal band - and one of the most revered and influential ones at that - puts out music that is actually fun. That's right, fun. Brutal, raw, evil, stupid fun!

If you have any respect or knowledge of the roots of Black Metal, then at very least you can appreciate this album. If you are "tr00" as you claim and yet dismiss this album as garbage just because it rocks and doesn't simply blast its way into your brain, or because it is so blatantly derivative, then you need to go back to Metal school. Try and tell me Darkthrone's Celtic Frost influence hadn't already shown itself all over Panzerfaust. Try and tell me that Bathory's legendary first album wasn't total Venom worship, and for that matter try and tell me that you could take Venom seriously half the time. Try and tell me Hellhammer didn't sound like an amateurish punk band, and find ONE Mercyful Fate song with a blastbeat. Then maybe I'll change my mind. No wait, I won't. None of that made any of those bands any less great than they were. Darkthrone recognize this greatness, and they play the music they love. If you don't like it, you can...well, see the album title.

Old school is back!!! 12 April 2008
By spacefreak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Following them from their early rehearsal demo days as BLACK DEATH, I've lost interest in DARKTHRONE after "Panzerfaust", just like with any other band of the by-then awfully standardized and sterile black metal scene. My attention was revitalized after discovering the crusty influenced "The Cult is Alive" between my daughter's CDs. And then, attracted by the punkish cover, reminding me of a BROKEN BONES album, I grab a copy of "F.O.A.D."... And I drowned within that sea of nihilistic riffing that brought memories of a long-gone era. What I most liked about the music is the demo quality of the recording, that lost beauty of a raw, primal, poorly-produced 8-track stuff that dominated most underground NWOBHM and early thrash albums. A dogmatically obvious choice and a tribute to those legendary times of the tape trading underground.

I'm not gonna go track-by-track here. I don't even believe that the guys from DARKTHRONE also give a f**@@k about individual tracks. I've been to heavy rock since the mid 70ies and NWOBHM plus the 2nd wave of punk bands during the early 80ies; then thrash metal, proto-death and early uncompromising blackness. DARKTHRONE have also been through all this; from URIAH HEEP to NECROVORE and "F.O.A.D." is the swan song of an era when purity and dedication to an uncompromised stance culminated the music.

MOTORHEAD, TANK, VENOM, WARFARE, PILEDRIVER, MEFISTO, ACID (Belg), KAAOS, PUKE, ANTI-CYMEX, MOB 47, SIEGE, DISCHARGE, REPULSION, AMEBIX, VARUKERS, DOOM, PARTISANS, SODOM, CIRITH UNGOL, CHAOTIC DISCHORD, VULCAIN, ANTISECT, CELTIC FROST, MORBID, AUNT MARY, POISON (Ger), WHIPLASH, ANARCHUS, DISORDER, CHAOS UK, RIISTETYT, HELLBASTARD, early SARCOFAGO... the list of purity is endless! New yet old DARKTHRONE pay homage to all of us raised on rock, who have been there and still haven't surrender to the corporate scum that rules most post-90ies modern metal.

In conclusion it's only rock 'n' roll as it always have been. Relentlessly old school. Sold my soul within its highs & lows for the 45 years of my life and listening to this sh#@t is getting personal. Musical qualities? Originality? Instrumental progression? Forget it, non-compromised regression is the key here. So what if you already have a cup of that stuff before? This album is not about music dudes, it's about attitude. An utterly personal affair. If you can't dig it then F.O.A.D.!!!

Smash Your Head Goodness! 4 May 2008
By Matango Luvr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Darkthrone does it again and puts out another tasty treat of a record. They've been doing this since their inception. I don't need to explain the content of this LP. If you've been listening to Darkthrone then you already understand why you should rush out to your nearest record store and buy this. Change is good - especially when done for the right reasons. Enjoy!

following the current trend 5 Nov. 2007
By D. A. Fortney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Darkthrone is among many Norwegian bands that have evolved themselves into a kind of black,gritty,rock n roll metal sound. It all started when Abbath formed the band I, and Shagrath formed the band Chrome Division. Both worship at the alter of Motorhead. Satyricon's Now Diabolical is also a heavy Metal sounding CD. All are exceptional recordings. Darkthrone's contribution to the blackened metal, F.O.A.D. and their last CD: The cult is alive, are fun, interesting, and a blast to listen to. Not heavy or serious, this is fun heavy party music. I like this new sound these guys have created. It beats the hell out of an album of non stop blast beats and screaming vocals. Not for the elite Kvltish Black Metal fan.

Best Darkthrone album 26 May 2008
By DevilsEve666 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Darkthrone are now older and wiser, and they can write whatever type of music they feel like. And I respect them a whole hell of a lot for that. Be warned this album is extremely different from the rest of thier catalog, but it's good material just keep an open mind...This was the best release of 2007 in my personal opinion of course.
