Staff review by

Two years only after the release of "Sardonic Wrath", Darkthrone is back with its new awaited release, "The Cult Is Alive". And this time, the band is doing a big turnover with a radical change of its musical orientation. Now, we cannot only talk about Black Metal, because now, Darkrthone plays something a lot more original (and tricky too), a mix of Thrash, Punk and Black Metal. Some of you will hate it some others (like me) will love it. Be ready for the Black/Thrash attack !!!

Rating: 7 A clear change in style which largely welcomes the gritty nature of Crust Punk, incorporated into Darkthrone's already raw BM approach. It's far from the band's best album, but in terms of their Crust Punk influence era (This and the next few albums I believe) this is definitely their best for me. Opener 'The cult of Goliath' is monumental and 'De Underjordiske' seems to have a slightly more BM-oriented sound than usual, but there are a few songs which prove to be boring and simply follow the same structure-But then I suppose that's typical of this particular genre.
