Darkthrone - Transylvanian Hunger

Posted on Friday, October 15, 2010

Somewhere under the 666 layers of tape hiss is Darkthrone’s 4th album, and sad to say, it’s the worst yet. I worshipped these guys’ first two albums, but this is just ridiculous. The first song, which is the title track, displays two riffs. Both riffs contain two notes a piece, and are repeated a combined 44 times (yes, I counted)! And this is the album’s best tune. I can’t understand why this LP only has one drum beat, or why the production is so horrible that it’s degrading at best. The only cool thing about this record is that Burzum mastermind Varg Virkenes wrote the lyrics for the last four tracks. Too bad he couldn’t have written the music also.
