Nocturno Culto of the long-running Norwegian black metallers DARKTHRONE has issued the following update:
“We have recorded four songs for the next album, ‘Dark Thrones And Black Flags’. We sort of tried to keep the title ‘hidden,’ but my mouth ran over talking to Metal Hammer (damn!!!), so anyways, that’s the title, and NO, it’s not punkish you bastards, it’s METAL TO THE BONE!!! I tell ya, what we allow ourself to do these days…. riff-wise, I mean. IT’S A BLOODY FEAST!!!! The plan is to have the final recordings ready in July at latest. I know, I know, this album comes fast, but not to worry, we’ll use just a tad more time on the album after that.”
DARKTHRONE’s latest album, “F.O.A.D.”, was released in September 2007 via Peaceville. An EP, “NWOBHM” (New Wave Of Black Heavy Metal), preceded the full-length CD on July 23.
