Darkthrone are beyond legend and require no introduction. This most aptly titled album from their early transitional period is among my all-time favourites by Norway's most loyal, and totally crushes anything on A Blaze in the Northern Sky in every aspect if you ask me. It features some of the most crawling, ominous riffs the band has ever concocted, and the album rings with a triumphant, arrogant sadism. Of course, Fenriz and Nocturno - most charming figures the both of them - have much to be arrogant about, especially with this beast of cold and harrowing beauty... Ravishing Grimness, indeed.

  1. How do you feel about the most recent Darkthrone (Circling the Wagons)?
    I respect that it's not just the same old thing they've been doing for years, but it really feels boring to me.
