DARKTHRONE — The Underground Resistance (review)

4.5/5 ·
Warthur
The arc of Darkthrone's ongoing genre meanderings curves away from the crust punk they'd been wallowing in on recent releases. Instead, The Underground Resistance comes across as a celebration of classic black metal - not the Norwegian wave of which Darkthrone were themselves pioneers, but the first wave in the 1980s which served as their inspiration. Hints of Venom, Celtic Frost, early Bathory and even Mercyful Fate (the latter particularly evident in some of the guitar solos) are replete throughout the album, which has a brash, dirty sound which at the same time isn't afraid to pull in some traditional heavy metal influence here and there.
