      Dirty and chaotic punk/black metal

      Released in 2004, legendary norwegian black metal band Darkthrone's eleventh full-length 'Sardonic Wrath' continues the band's trajectory into raw and dirty up-tempo punk territory, in many ways being the band's last 'serious' album after which they would descend into the more light-hearted style of subsequent albums 'The Cult is Alive', 'F.O.A.D'. and 'Dark Thrones and Black Flags'.

      As with all of darkthrone's efforts, 'Sardonic Wrath' is both simplistic and raw, though here the chaotic riffs have a distinct Motorhead feel about them, managing to be simulatneously upbeat, coarse and decidedly cynical. There are plenty of great, catchy punk riffs and choruses throughout, accompanied by the band's trademark rasping growls, though there is also a playfulness on offer, with songtitles such as 'Sjakk Matt Jesu Krist', ('Checkmate Jesus Christ' in English).

      The album remains wholly engaging throughout, with no filler material to be found, its effectiveness lying in its crude and unsophisticated nature. The Romantic-era black-and-white artwork depicting a group of (fallen?) angels hunting a great herd of damned souls with swords is great too, and completely in keeping with the attitude and general aesthetic of the music. A cracking raw punk/black metal album.
