Norway | Death (early), Black (mid), Punk/Black/Heavy (later)
Darkthrone originally formed in the late 80's as a thrash/death metal act & progressed through a period technical death and doom metal experimentation to become legends of the black metal world & one of the original leading bands of the Norwegian scene. "Sardonic Wrath" was initially released in 2004 and was Darkthrone's final album for the Moonfog Productions label. With a suitably raw sound courtesy of Lars Klokkerhaug, the album delivers a wholly grim selection of black metal greatness courtesy of Nocturno Culto and Fenriz, with a dose of pure 80s metal influence as ever coursing through their veins. Regarded as a particular highlight of Darkthrone's Moonfog era albums, "Sardonic Wrath" also features guest vocals from Apollyon of countrymen Aura Noir/Immortal. This LP edition of "Sardonic Wrath" is presented on 180gm heavyweight black vinyl.
