Sometimes articulating what it is you love about a band's music can, to an extent, damage the magic the music in question has on you. Sometimes. So, as a Darkthrone fanboy, it feels like I should approach all this delicately.

Cos Darkthrone's the fucking tits. All hail Darkthrone \ m /

Their previous four full lengths seem to have, in general, successfully split their fanbase in two. On one side you've got the fans of their old kvlt stuff exclusively, the "the fuck is this wannabe 80s punk shit" people, and on the other you have the "if you don't like this, you don't like real metal, so FOAD" types. I lean toward the latter side. Their newer stuff teems and sloshes with the kind of inebriated energy I love most from heavy music. Their older stuff? Some of it kinda did, some of it didn't at all.

Rating: 9 I have only had it for one day, but i have heard it 3 times already. It makes me sad that the kvlt kids are gonna give this really low ratings just because it isn't a "peaceville 3" bm style; this album deserves much better than that. From the standpoint of somebody who admires the newer more matured Darkthrone, I can say that this stands out as a high point in their career (for me at least). The musical structure is very reminicant of 80's first wave bm/thrash, with strong elements of Mercyful Fate thrown on top of Fenriz's songs and the raspy punk of Nocturno's songs. I really love this album so far, but like I said, this is the first day i have owned it. Only time will tell it's true impact on me, till then i will blast this album like there is no tomorrow

Rating: 7 I love how everyone seems to think there are elements of Mercyful Fate in it when in fact it is Agent Steel and Exciter. Fenriz even said so himself in a couple of interviews. The falsetto vocals and music there is much closer to that of Agent Steel and Exciter than Mercyful Fate/King Diamond. And it makes way more sense that they reference AS and Exciter and not MF/KD cause Fenriz wants to pay hommage to unheralded old school speed and not well-known bands such as MF/KD

Is Fenriz out of his mind ?? It's obviously Punk and Black, there is nothing similar to "Pure Thrashy -Exciter". As for the vocals, Exciter is in Countertenor but not Falsetto. Fenriz definitely does not possess the capability to produce Countertenor (as it's an inborn talent), he can only do Falsetto but his skills sucks.


the beginning of Leave No Cross Unturned is pure Agent Steel/Exciter worship. There is no black metal whatsoever on this album and almost no punk either.

Rating: 6 Yep to think this is black is almost as bad as thinking it's punk, of which there is nearly none.
Unhealer - 06.03.2013 at 20:26  
Rating: 8 I don't think there is black metal either, but I definitely hear what I would consider punk. Not that I'm a punk expert, but you can hardly hear anything else but a power chord from the guitars. Also the speed and the squarish drumming, it all summons punk in my mind.
Maybe it's not punk per se, but the more punk influenced branch of heavy/speed metal.

Rating: 6 I'm going to have to agree with Marcel and Joe. This album contains 0 punk and 0 black metal. It also contains close to 0 good material

I agree with the first two since those are facts. I dig this though.

I'm just not a fan of the style
I've liked some of their more punk-ish stuff however

The Cult Is Alive is probably their most crust-friendly.

And possibly my favorite of modern Darkthrone. It's been a while since I've listened to their newer stuff, but I remember enjoying TCIA and Hate Them quite a bit... and back to this album.

Sardonic Wrath is pretty decent too...

Rating: 7 (Vocally) better than Circle The Wagons. Sounds like heavy/speed metal. And what do they mean by "no A.N.D cut 'n' paste trickery" (I think it says A.N.D, it's in fancy writing)?

It's ANY, I think... at least it's what I understood and it makes sense

Rating: 7 Does anyone else think Fenriz sounds like Doctor Teeth in parts of Leave No Cross Unturned? (like the bit where he says "Nocturno Culto!)
Pelcu - 22.03.2013 at 13:25  
Rating: 9 Very interesting and unprecedented kind of metal, mix of styles. Even hard to classify as specific style. Is there any band even a bit similar? Interesting riffs and super vocal with specific parts when voice is going down the scale How this is possible to give "2" for that? In revenge or just by stupidity? As this is not garage shit but professional music and thus could not be interesting for someone as the style but it's not a shit for 2.
Previous DT albums were quite nice (I start listen from Dark Thrones And Black Flags) with some very good single songs but also with some others not so good or just boring as my wife... This time "The Underground Resistance" is very consistent and good album as a whole. With some pearls like Valkyrie or Leave No Cross Unturned, but there is not bad or average track recorded. I shall only regret that this is so short album (only 41 mins). I want more!
!J.O.O.E.! - 22.03.2013 at 14:10  
Rating: 6 I never thought I'd hear the word "unprecedented" in association with this album
God Alone - 28.04.2013 at 15:16  
Rating: 6 Fairly good but kind of a mixed bag. I still don't get why this should be regarded as better than the previous albums - which I still prefer.
Cunt_Destructor - 07.06.2013 at 15:28  
Rating: 10 Frankly speeking, I find this album PERFECT. I haven't expected that these guys have been able to release such energetic album... I liked their previous three or two crust-black-punk albums (he-he), but this one impressed me notoriously... Thanks them a lot. And I hope that the further works and albums will be even more energetic:yes:

  Am I the only one that see a total copy (others might say worship) of early Celtic Frost in here (even in the production)?
