Darkthrone began in the late 80’s as a thrash/death metal act & progressed through technical death/doom metal experimentation to become legends of the black metal world & one of the original leading bands of the Norwegian scene.
‘Ravishing Grimness’ was Darkthrone’s seventh studio album, originally released in 1999. The album contained more mid-paced black metal than some of their previous releases - with Celtic Frost-inspired riffs once again an important factor in Darkthrone’s music - as well as featuring more rock & punk elements than earlier albums. Most of the tracks on ‘Ravishing Grimness’ were this time written by Nocturno Culto, as well as guest lyrics on The Beast appearing courtesy of Aldrahn & Fog (Dшdheimsgard).
This edition of ‘Ravishing Grimness’ includes an extra disc featuring commentary from Fenriz & Nocturno Culto describing their inspirations and memories from the time of recording.
