Darkthrone’s Classic Fifth Album Of Celtic Frost Fuelled Black Metal, Presented On Limited Picture Disc Vinyl With Cut-Out Sleeve’panzerfaust’, Darkthrone’s fifth album, was originally released in 1995 on the Norwegian label, Moonfog (the label previously owned by Satyr of Satyricon). The album was recorded similarly to their previous release, ‘Transilvanian Hunger’, in that it was written and recorded solely by Fenriz at his home ‘Necrohell’ studio, with Nocturno Culto later adding vocals. ‘Panzerfaust’ was largely inspired by the works of Celtic Frost, a long-time favourite of the Darkthrone members, and also includes a couple of fast songs in the Bathory style, a follow-on to the faster tempo of the tracks featured on ‘Transilvanian Hunger’. ‘Panzerfaust’ is also notable for including some of the most raw and primal vocals in black metal – completely well suited to the music on display and the misanthropic nature of the band at the time. With it’s feast of Frost-fuelled riffing, ‘Panzerfaust’ is rightly hailed one of THE classic Darkthrone black metal albums. It also features lyrics written by Varg Vikernes of Burzum.
