While Darkthrone retain the roots of their black metal origins, they don't release out and out black metal albums anymore (nor have they for a very long time). Their latest, Old Star, sees them move into more doomy territory. Sounding like a cross between Bathory and Black Sabbath they have unleashed some of their best riffs in ages. A mention must also go to the meaty production job on this album, producing one of the best-sounding albums of their career (and which also suits the more doomy material on offer here).
