Norwegian black metal veterans DARKTHRONE will release their new studio album, “The Underground Resistance”, on February 25, 2013 via Peaceville Records.
In a recent interview with Terrorizer magazine DARKTHRONE guitarist/vocalist Nocturno Culto stated about the band’s new CD: “I can’t speak for Fenriz, but I think he’s going for more epic lyrics. I can only speak for myself and this time around they are very personal lyrics. It’s the first time I’ve ever tried this and it’s difficult to do it nicely and put it into good words. There was a lot of hate and people trying to ruin your day and I had stuff to say for my sake.”
He added: “Our music now is basically just metal. It will be a step away from the last album as usual.”
DARKTHRONE‘s last album, “Circle The Wagons”, sold around 500 copies in the United States in its first week of release back in April 2010. The CD landed at position No. 120 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
