The Norwegian black metal legend DARKTHRONE mark their return in 2019 with a sublime called ''Old Star'' & many relentless riffing in the true spirit of the underground. Since the release of the debut ''Soulside Journey'' 28 years ago, no DARKTHRONE fan had to wait more than 3 years for a new album by the cult duo. The rumbling machinery of Fenriz & Nocturno Culto is running and running ... and running. New material from both scene pioneers appears as reliable as the daily newspaper. DARKTHRONE are usually stable rock in the surf & musically lucky bag with many surprises at the same time. On the one hand, the inclined listener knows in advance what he can expect from a new DARKTHRONE record. On the other hand, it is always surprising how spontaneously and unbound the two freethinkers shape their musical heritage. With that, their 18th longplayer ''Old Star'' with his 38 minutes of playing time is once again not a decal of his predecessors & yet he fits into the overall picture as always. ''Old Star'' shows in its 6 epic tracks, simply a true masterpiece of reef art, recording the best of heavy and black metal in combination with a large dose of doom directed by the filth of the underground. The limited first CD edition comes with slipcase!
