Black metal legends Darkthrone have officially announced their next studio album, the band’s 17th. “Old Star” is currently available for preorder, with a May 31st release date. No music has yet to be released, but the album art has been released, and is pretty damn cool.
The official announcement reads as follows:
“Okay people, soon comes a new serving of Darkthrone! So get ready for the arrival of the Old Star. It’s like the 80s never left! Pre-order here darkthrone.lnk.to/OldStarFA
We are back with the RIFFS and more metal than EVER!!!
