the punk rockers Darkthrone (Norway): "The Underground Resistance"
the punk rockers Darkthrone (Norway): "The Underground Resistance" 4 points on Darkthrone: 1.style 2.production 3.execution 4.talent 1.Style. There are 3 songs with King Diamond-imitation traditional, melodic singing, including high screams. There are another 3 songs with punk-crust yelling-growling, in a somewhat Tom G. Warrior-imitation. The guitar work is a dirty thrash sound, at times recalling 80s unpolished thrash/speed/death/black, but also traditional heavy metal, something like a combination of Celtic Frost and Judas Priest, and all thrashed up. Therefore, all is as it was, as it is, in the camp of Darkthrone. Now they decided to add a bit of Mercyful Fate/Judas Priest/New Wave of British Heavy Metal and Exodus/Metallica/Slayer in the salad.
