Darkthrone have announced their new album Eternal Hails, set for release on 25th June 2021 via Peaceville.
The Norwegian black metal outfit’s 19th album is comprised of five tracks and comes in at 45-minutes long. Speaking about the release Nocturno Culto says: “When I was a kid growing up with metal I kept looking for bands with long songs. Black Sabbath had many, and Celtic Frost’s ‘Dawn Of Meggido’ had a long song, so I put that on in the record store and discovered another dimension of metal. Candlemass’ ‘Epicus Doomicus Metallicus’ had only long songs, so I think I bought that without even listening, and it was one of my best buys ever – an eternal inspiration for my entire career..”.
He continues: “For us it has become a bit logical, hard to explain, but you get to build up for a different kind of listening. A three-minute song is nothing we think of at the moment. We like it this way. For now.”
