Ahead of the impending release of their 20th (!) studio album next week, legendary Norwegian Black Metal duo Norway Darkthrone have just put out one of the tracks from the album. Check out "Caravan of Broken Ghosts":


The new album is titled "Astral Fortress", and will drop next Friday 28th of October via Peaceville Records, who the band have remained with since their debut over 30 years ago. The label commented on the new track and the album as a whole:

With the song, Fenriz says “there is a revisit vibe of ‘Quintessence’ at first, which is a total coincidence as it is Ted's song and I wrote ‘Q’. The song then explodes into fiercer metal, pounding and catching there as well, with clever riff shifts. And then the classic doom ending. Thank you, Ted"


Carried on the brisk wind of eager rock, with foundations in black, thrash, doom and heavy metal, Astral Fortress is the latest album of stellar, eclectic old metal in the Darkthrone odyssey. With a seemingly endless dungeon full of heavy metal influences channelled through Darkthrone’s dynamic riff-machine, plus also with many increasing inspirations taken from their own past catalogue.

Even though sprinkled with atmospheric touches such as synthesizers and mellotron on Astral Fortress to great effect, the Darkthrone sound remains stripped down to the core; always primitive and organic. Darkthrone has truly become its own beast within the metal world.

"Astral Fortress" clocks in at exactly 40 minutes in length, with complete tracklist is as follows

  1. Caravan of Broken Ghosts
  2. Impeccable Caverns of Satan
  3. Stalagmite Necklace
  4. The Sea Beneath the Seas of the Sea
  5. Kevorkian Times
  6. Kolbotn, West of the Vast Forests
  7. Eon 2

"Astral Fortress" was recorded at Chaka Khan Studios in Oslo, which is the same location used for the band's previous effort, "Eternal Hails......".

Pre-orders for the album are available here:
