Darkthrone - Circle the Wagons (2010)

Holy shit, why did I never listen to new-era Darkthrone? I've been banging my head to Circle the Wagons and their earlier EP Too Old, Too Cold since this morning and I can't get over how enjoyable they are. The thrashing drumming, the blackened crusty guitar riffs, the gruff pirate vocals, the lyrical rantings on I Am the Grave of the 80s and I Am the Working Class (I never expected these grim overlords to sing about their day jobs) - it's fucking great, man! It just goes to show you how a talented band can keep things fresh and interesting even after 20 years at the grind wheel.

Definite bossery going on here.
