Darkthrone - NWOBHM (New Wave of Black Heavy Metal)

Band: Darkthrone
Album: NWOBHM (New Wave of Black Heavy Metal)
Genre: Punkish Black Metal
Country of Origin: Norway
Year: 2007

Track Listing:
  1. Wisdom of the Dead
  2. Canadian Metal
  3. Hedninger Fra Helvete
  4. Bad Attitude (Testors Cover)

New EP by the legendary Norweigan Black Metal band Darkthrone. Continuing with the Punkishness of The Cult is Alive, NWOBHM is almost Black 'n' Punkish or even Black/Speed Metal, like Black Metal meets Motorhead. The EP ends with an appropriately placed Testor cover; an excellent cover of a Punk Rock song. A definite step up from The Cult is Alive and makes the wait for their upcoming 2007 album more exciting. Recommended.
