Staff review by
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.

For the first time in three years everyone's favorite demonic duo are back with another platter of new wave of blackened crust punk fun. Leave the detraction to lesser men, leave no cross unturned and no beer unopened.

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...

(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)?
"Another day, another Doug."
"I'll fight you on one condition. That you lower your nipples."
" 'Tis a lie! Thy backside is whole and ungobbled, thou ungrateful whelp!"

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

Does anyone else think Fenriz sounds like Doctor Teeth in parts of Leave No Cross Unturned? (like the bit where he says "Nocturno Culto!)
"Another day, another Doug."
"I'll fight you on one condition. That you lower your nipples."
" 'Tis a lie! Thy backside is whole and ungobbled, thou ungrateful whelp!"

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!
Don't look for solution - look for EXIT!

I never thought I'd hear the word "unprecedented" in association with this album

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.

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)?

Bad English
Tage Westerlund
Only I own from this one, BM days are over, and band still kicking ... 2 men and what they can do, but there goes prog and DT and progressive prog , 5-10 instremtalists, they just play and its getting boring , primitivism is the key, Ac/Dc is example. Band went evolution way and it was great, strong inficual characters , personalities, can make it happen.
Life is to short for LOVE, there is many great things to do online !!!
