‘Total Death’ was the sixth album from the black metal legends Darkthrone and was originally released in 1996. After recording the previous two albums at Fenriz’s Necrohell portable home studio the band reverted to a traditional studio set-up for recording; this time it was Ancient Spectre Ruins with the songs recorded in two sessions there in August and October 1995. The song-writing on ‘Total Death’ was split equally between the 2 members Fenriz and Nocturno Culto with Nocturno supplying lyrics to his own songs whilst Fenriz gave the honour to notable members of the Norwegian metal scene: Garm from Ulver Ihsahn from Emperor Carl-Michael Eide from Aura Noir/Ved Buens Ende and Satyr from Satyricon. The album delivers a classic dose of mid and up-tempo black metal along with thrash such as on the track ‘Blasphemer’. Also included on this edition of ‘Total Death’ is the bonus track God of Disturbance and Friction which itself was recorded around the same period and subsequently included on a low-key compilation for the band’s label at the time Moonfog Productions. This mid-price edition is presented in jewel case packaging complete with an 8-page booklet and OBI card.
