Norwegian duo, Darkthrone, return with their first new studio material since 2013’s triumphant The Underground Resistance.
An eclectic mix of free-spirited 80’s fuelled blackened heavy metal, all executed in Darkthrone’s trademark raw and organic style, Arctic Thunder was recorded & produced by the band themselves, with the sessions conducted at Darkthrone’s old rehearsal unit, “The Bomb Shelter”, which they had originally used during 1988-1990.
