Darkthrone: Arctic Thunder

Arctic Thunder is Darkthrone's 16th studio album and their first since 2013's The Underground Resistance. It was recorded and produced by Fenriz and Nocturno Culto themselves with the help of producer Jack Control and after those three weeks since its release, it's safe to say that it's one of the most impressive albums the duo has put together in the late part of their career.

Described by Fenriz as "more serious and primitive than usual," Arctic Thunder goes back to the band's trve black metal background, kind of simplified from the more complex punk sound of their recent previous efforts, although it is still packed with heavy riffs, rock 'n' roll attitude and eighties speed metal energy.

It's been thirty years since their formation, twenty-five since their death metal debut, but those two guys, still living as outcasts outside the boundaries of the mainstream, have managed to keep sounding spirited, being productive and remain young, at least regarding the excellent records they steadily produce.
