Like other Norwegian black metal formations, Darkthrone started as a death metal band. This is their first and only death metal album, where the style is quite technical with good riffs and changes of speed. What i find interesting in this album is its atmosphere, very dark and overwhelming, created by the sound of the guitars, the reverb of the vocals and also the occasional keyboard touches. I personally love atmosphere in death metal, which is actually very rare in this style. Very good sound and good compositions.
