21 Years Ago: DARKTHRONE release Total Death (The envy of loosers we piss on)

DARKTHRONE released their sixth album on this day in 1996 through Moonfog.

We really didn't do a lot of interviews from 93 and onwards. We sort of came out nowhere with Total Death album, because we've been just keeping low profile.

Lyrical contributions from Ihsahn (EMPEROR), Carl-Michael Eide (AURA NOIR, VIRUS), Satyr (SATYRICON), Garm (ULVER, ARCTURUS). Artwork by Union of Lost Souls, who designed several Moonfog releases around this time (Nemesis Divina, Thorns vs. Emperor).

I was in charge of album covers until TOTAL DEATH album in 1996, then I lost interest in the visual thing. Unfortunately that meant that PHOTOSHOP technique snuck into the covers of darkthrone, and I didn’t care much until I took a bit charge of album covers again in 1997, with F.O.A.D. album...

I had a different mix I liked for total death but we went for another. I’d like my mix of it to be there in the future, but it’s lost.
