Norwegian act Darkthrone has completed work on its latest album "The Underground Resistance," which is set for release on Peaceville Records on February 26th. The following press release was issued about the album:

"The Underground Resistance is Darkthrone's latest venture through the metal cosmos, and first new album since the 2010 opus Circle the Wagons. The Underground Resistance contains Darkthrone's trademark masterful riffing in a broad range of styles, effortlessly bounding through the annals of classic metal, taking in thrash, speed and black metal, and not forgetting a dose of punk. All in all a ferocious and dynamic set of tracks drenched in Fenriz's and Nocturno's rich and diverse tastes in all things metal, primarily those rooted firmly in the spirit of the 80's. Six tracks long, and each one an epic in itself, this is undoubtedly Darkthrone's strongest outing of late.

"The Underground Resistance was written and recorded spring 2010 to summer 2012 at Necrohell 2 studios by the band themselves. The album was mastered by Jack Control at Enormous Door in Texas. Cover artwork also comes courtesy of the iconic and celebrated artist Jim Fitzpatrick."

Commented Fenriz, "Three songs each, Ted's are flown from the universe of metal with his strongest voice ever so far. Songs of mine are torn from the wombs of the riders of rohan of metal, safely cradled in 1985 style."

It takes 3 years to release 6 new tracks? Don't get me wrong, I've loved every one of Darkthrone's past 4 albums... but I could write a few Darkthrone punk-era albums in a day if I really wanted too...and anyone else could too. Hopefully this will be worth the wait.

this new darkthrone record looks pretty awesome....six songs seems to be more of an EP than a proper album though...it would be pretty cool if they actually toured this one....are any of you guys getting tired of all the true kvlt 14 year old keyboard warriors who constantly b**** about darkthrone selling out because they didn't just remake transilvanian hunger continously? They are probably my favorite black metal band....mayhem and burzum got all the media attention but Darkthrone had the real talent for tunes and lyrics....

Oh and since we now have one week left of civilization left according to the mayans I'd like to wish you all happy holidays despite the tragedy and chaos of the world...Despite our fearsome reputation it wasn't us metalheads who brought the world to the brink of the abyss...oh and anyone who doesn't like the almighty Darkthrone doesn't like black metal.

Darkthrone tour? ain't gonna happen brother....just two understated bad asses in Norge who happen to not give a flying fvck! :)

Ya just gotta blow off the super hardcore rip-so-hard "kvit svart" fvcking PRETENDERS and their flaccid b!tching

Vikernes deserves whatever 'accolades' have been over-begrudgingly given him...fvcking MAYHEM has sucked the major smoke pole ever since the Swede blew his noggin off...and THAT was a LONG fvckin time ago...

NP---Fvck Off and Die---got that, poseur fvcking b****es? :)

Greetings brother hellrat....FOAD is a great darkthrone tune...I'm 34 and married with a kid so I could trulg give a rats behind about the opinions of some pimply faced virgin in his mother's basement b****ing about how some black metal band is no longer true or kvlt...I'm not a big fan of burzum(some of the music is ok, vikernes is and a$$hole of a human being in my book) Sorry to be a square old man but I don't think murder and church burning are necessary to sell records...leave the mayhem to the rappers and their entourages. I like a lot of early mayhem but none of the stuff from the last 6 years will ever touch De Mysteris Dom Sathanas...Varg is lucky he committed his crimes in Norway...he'd be locked up forever here, or riding the lightning in old sparky if he burned a church in Texas. Happy Holidays dude...Are you planning on seeing the hatebreed, dying fetus, shadows fall tour next year(if civilization still exists?)

a$$hole eh? hmmm...

well, I'm an a$$hole also, so Vikernes is not really repugnant to me, but I am likewise not fragile minded nor easily shocked...i neither have ANY issue with his killing of that fvcking rodent Aarseth...THAT piece of human sh!t was the a$$hole :)

Anyway, Happy Holidays to you as well my friend, may your Hanukka be Heavy \m/

and NO! if that damn tour was the Earths final event before the Grand Combustion, I would yet decline...I don't think much of any of them bands ;)
