17 Years Ago: DARKTHRONE release Plaguewielder


I knew that some of things around Plaguewielder, that it was going to be...some people might whine about it because we use colors and everything on the artwork but we won't do that again because I think that the Sound went out good but I think Plaguewielder as a musical piece...well I would consider it black metal but I think it has more of a metal feel to it than some of the previous albums maybe. At least some of the songs But I think today I am really satisfied. Some people who told me that they didn't think it was very good at the start and now come to me and say that they listen to it a lot lately and I think it's a fucking good album. I mean people always have different opinions. But I think overall I am satisfied with Plaguewielder I think it's a bit more impact on the sound also than Ravishing Grimness but we don't like to compare our albums.

I used a very good Marshall stereo amp, and my trusty ol' Fender with the crisp sound. Together it worked very well. It is a kind of effect on the Marshall, that's true, and I think it did the job well...

DARKTHRONE released Plaguewielder through Moonfog on this day in 2001.

On Plaguewielder I used Fenriz's girlfriend's bass guitar. She's a bassist and vocalist in a female band. That was a firebird Gibson form 67. That was a really good bass.
