Darkthrone began life in the late 80’s as a thrash/death metal act and progressed through technical death/doom metal experimentation to become legends of the black metal world. They were one of the original leading bands of the Norwegian scene, as well as inspiring a whole generation of metal bands. The Underground Resistance was another stellar venture through the metal cosmos and contains Darkthrone’s trademark masterful riffing in a broad range of styles, effortlessly bounding through the annals of classic metal, taking in thrash and black metal and not forgetting a dose of punk. Overall, a ferocious and dynamic set of tracks drenched in Fenriz’s and Nocturno’s rich and diverse tastes in all things metal, primarily those rooted firmly in the spirit of the 80’s. Six tracks long and every one an epic, this was undoubtedly among Darkthrone’s strongest material of the decade.
