Panzerfaust, DARKTHRONE's fifth album was originally released in 1995 on the Norwegian label, Moonfog (the label previously owned by Satyr of SATYRICON). The album was recorded similarly to their previous release, Transilvanian Hunger, in that it was written and recorded solely by Fenriz at his home Necrohell studio, with Nocturno Culto later adding vocals. Panzerfaust was largely inspired by the works of CELTIC FROST, a long time favourite of the DARKTHRONE guys, and also includes a couple of fast songs in the BATHORY style, a follow-on to the faster tempo of the tracks featured on Transilvanian Hunger. Panzerfaust is also notable for including some of the most raw and primal vocals in black metal - completely well suited to the music on display and the misanthropic nature of the band at the time. With its feast of Frost-fuelled riffing, Panzerfaust is rightly hailed one of THE classic DARKTHRONE black metal albums. It also features lyrics written by Varg Vikernes of BURZUM.

Review

...a refreshing blast of black energy, completely anathema to the trend of the day, which involved more melodic guitars, an increased symphonic presence, and trying to bridge the 'accessibility gap' to bring new listeners into the fold. It was clear that one band (at least) would survive all this change and keep things to a minimum, and here is the proof. - 5/5
