There is always a great expectation when Darkthrone is going to release a new album and this generates discussions between the fans of the band and such and "Arctic Thunder" it was no different. The first track I heard was "Tundra Leech", in which you could feel an influence of the Brazilian metal in this song (in this case they are Sarcófago and Sepultura). Other tracks that I highlight are "Burial Bliss", "Boreal Fiends", "Inbred Vermin" and "Deep Lake Trespass". The songs that make up "Arctic Thunder" have the same influences from the last records, that is, the old black metal played by Celtic Frost, metal punk and crude heavy metal (although Fenriz is wearing a Napalm Death shirt on the back cover, the album has no grindcore influence). So, "Arctic Thunder" is better than "The Underground Resistance". The album's title was inspired by an extinct Norwegian band called Arctic Thunder and they played heavy/thrash metal. You can compare all the albums and stages of Darkthrone and choose which are your favorite records, but if you deny the essence and power of this album is a tremendous stupidity. Anyway, "Arctic Thunder" is a very good album!
