Darkthrone further purified their black metal vision with Under A Funeral Moon, creating a music at once more minimal and more compelling in its nihilistic attack. Evoking the evil beauty of profane occult rituals enacted in a frozen graveyard at midnight, Darkthrone have become the corpse-painted black metal cult incarnate. Not released until 1993 (a year after its recording), Under A Funeral Moon would stand at the epicentre of Norway’s blasphemous new underculture as its influence started to seep across the globe, abetted by others such as Mayhem, Burzum and Immortal.
