The Underground Resistance

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Gregory Heaney
Like many of the other bands that were so instrumental in shaping the sound of black metal's second wave, the wildly influential Darkthrone also walked away from the genre to explore other realms of heaviness. Now, 15 albums in, the band that helped to define a genre with a trio of stellar releases in the '90s returns with The Underground Resistance, an album built from the sounds that influenced them so many years ago.

Like many of the other bands that were so instrumental in shaping the sound of black metal's second wave, the wildly influential Darkthrone also walked away from the genre to explore other realms of heaviness. Now, 15 albums in, the band that helped to define a genre with a trio of stellar releases in the '90s returns with The Underground Resistance, an album built from the sounds that influenced them so many years ago. Combining elements of doom, thrash, and speed metal, the album takes the Norwegian duo further away from the gnarly crust punk sounds they've been working in and toward the elemental building blocks that live at the heart of so much modern metal.
