Darkthrone Premier New Track “Caravan of Broken Ghosts,” Off New LP ‘Astral Fortress’

Norwegian black metal legends Darkthrone are releasing their new album Astral Fortress next week (10/28) via Peaceville, and they’ve just shared its first single, “Caravan of Broken Ghosts.” It’s an eight-minute epic that starts out on the softer, slower side (by Darkthrone’s standards), but it does eventually evolve into heavy, high-speed black metal. Fenriz says:

There is a revisit vibe of ‘Quintessence’ at first, which is a total coincidence as it is Ted’s song and I wrote ‘Q’. The song then explodes into fiercer metal, pounding and catching there as well, with clever riff shifts. And then the classic doom ending. Thank you, Ted.
