The lyrical theme of the Norwegians’ tenth studio work follows a philosophical concept, dealing with the illusion of time and Luciferian codes.
This latest offering is full of hooks and technical brutality that both old and new fans of the band will enjoy.
De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas is widely considered one of the most influential black metal albums of all time and this is the first time that fans will be able to own a live copy of the album
Darkthrone remains one of the few bands for whom purity of expression is everything
If we were to mix all the records in the same way as for example the ‘Isolate’ album, I think people would’ve accuse us for not progressing.
He thrives on pushing the envelope of what is acceptable in the world of metal, as seen on the track “South Winds”…
To define Circus Maximus, is to define an intertwine and intricate wall of sound very subtly structured and refined
My only complaint about the album is that Tony Harnell didn’t sing it all. Much respect to Mr. Mills, but he simply doesn’t have that level of abilities. It’s made very evident when he sings “Everyone’s A Star.” I’m so glad to have, more or less, the version of TNT that I have loved for so long back together. Now for some new music and hopefully making the dream come of actually getting to see them live finally, that would make me very happy. I’m not typically a fan of live albums save for certain ones. 30th Anniversary 1982-2012 is a wonderful celebration of such an amazing band that is far more deserving of acknowledgment and respect in this business than they get on this side of the globe that it’s worth a spin. Even with my issues with it I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this album.
I guess I wanted to go back to basics, that’s all really. The guys
are great guys, I have known them for many years but sometimes people
grow in different directions. They always stayed in that German power
metal kind of bubble I would say. Not to say that in a negative
way, that is their trademark and they wanted to keep that. I think I am
more of a free bird somehow
Quantity rather than the quality of the actual music. That’s what i think happened in the old era, Ronnie was a part of that and that’s also why
a band could put only the best eight,nine or ten tracks on an album….
