DARKTHRONE: Done Mixing Two New Songs

Nocturno Culto (a.k.a. Ted Arvid Skjellum) from the Norwegian black metal band DARKTHRONE has issued the following update:

"I'm done mixing two new DARKTHRONE songs, and in late February we giving birth to a couple of new songs again. Sorry, but we wimped out and isolated the guitar amp during recording, but it's still live drums and one guitar. Sound is now 'cleaner,' but I guess alot of people would argue that. It still sounds necro as it should, but the drum sound is way better in my opinion. Ahh, what the fuck, who cares anyway??? I find myself very much in the black heavy metal region these days, and the new material gets affected by that."

In other news, Thomas Berglie (KHOLD, OLD MAN'S CHILD, TULUS) contacted Nocturno Culto last spring to ask him to lay down vocals for Thomas' new band SARKE. Nocturno Culto says, "I ended up in a studio in Oslo in October and it feels great to be doing something different. We are even going to do some live shows in Norway this year."

DARKTHRONE's latest album, "Dark Thrones and Black Flags", was released on October 20 through Peaceville. The follow-up to 2007's acclaimed "F.O.A.D." LP was made available in three formats: a regular edition in super jewel case; a vinyl edition; and a special edition in a slipcased super jewel case package with exclusive new video footage featuring DARKTHRONE in the studio — "Fucking Around Version 1" and "Fucking Around Version 2."
