Darkthrone began life in the late 80s as a thrash/death metal act and progressed through technical death/doom metal experimentation to become legends of the black metal world and one of the original leading bands of the Norwegian scene, as well as inspiring a whole generation of metal bands.
"Under A Funeral Moon", Darkthrone's third album, was originally released by Peaceville in 1993. The album is a bleak reflection of contemporary times, featuring harsh guitar riffage and hateful vocals in what was the band's first 100% pure black metal opus; a work completely stripped of the death metal traces of former releases and in its place, a stark and primitive execution. This was aided by an intentionally lo-fi sound that is powerfully cold and entirely unconcerned with any modern-day aesthetics.
"Under A Funeral Moon" is the album that many Darkthrone fans hail as the ultimate manifesto for Black Metal.
