Darkthrone to release album on vinyl first

Darkthrone welcome a new decade with a new album, as the unrelenting Norwegian duo deliver Circle The Wagons, a creative feast of metal & punk. For the first time, Darkthrone’s album will initially be released on vinyl ONLY – an exclusive taster for the legions of metal supporters out there who still care about great music delivered the classic way!

The vinyl will only be available from the Peaceville store. Orders shall ship from March 8th and will also include a link to download a digital version of the album which will be available when the regular and special edition CD versions of the album are released on April 5th.

The vinyl edition can be pre-ordered now at www.peaceville.com/darkthrone. The packaging and contents of the special edition CD will be announced shortly and this will be available to pre-order from the Circle The Wagons mini-site, which will launch on February 12th.

From their thrash and death beginnings to their ascension to the pantheon of black metal greats, Darkthrone have always refused to stand still. They continue to embrace and explore their roots and capture the real spirit of sonic greatness on CIRCLE THE WAGONS; recorded by the band themselves at Necrohell II studios.

Darkthrone sail against the tides of trend and disposable metal; uncompromising and defiant as ever – an ideology expanded upon by Fenriz when explaining the meaning behind the title:

The new metal decade starts with our album. It is a message to the invaders of our metal domain to circle their wagons!!!

With our own brand of heavy metal/speed metal-punk we are a constant ambush on the modern overground metal traitors. Join us in our fight against instant gratification…. and let’s see who stands when the smoke clears…

Album by album we gnaw away at the overwhelming mass of so-called raw metal out there – well, the only time i saw something raw wrapped in plastic was when it was DEAD meat. And so in the long run, all raw bands with old raw sound WINS – and your plastic paradise instant gratification sound vanishes with time.
