CHOICE CUTS

BLOODY CHUNKS OF THE CULT. THE KVLT AND THE FRESHLY DEAD

“I WAS HATING SOCIETY AND PLAYING A LOT OF GUITAR TO FIND SOLACE”

“I was hating society and playing a lot of guitar to find solace and mental space away from its destructive and brainwashing stranglehold on the mind,” begins guitarist David Tobin, who those of you in tune with this little island’s drone/ doom scene will recognise as being one half of Ommadon. “Some of the riffs were written in Glasgow, a city that could be beautiful but is run by corrupt and small-minded men, some were written years earlier in Ürümchi, a city under martial law run by even more corrupt and small-minded men. I had a lot of riffs together which were written during those moments that were slightly more energetic and less morose than the soporific nature of Ommadon. Me, Tanya [Byrne, of Bismuth, Megalodoom, ex-Diet Pills] and Henry [Davies, of Moloch, ex-Army Of Flying Robots] had been friends through music for a long time and I thought, ‘who is my favourite bass player and favourite drummer in the UK (that I’m not already in a band with!)’ and they were both into it. I’m lucky.”

About Terrorizer Magazine

It’s always a pleasure to feature Darkthrone on the cover of Terrorizer. They are a truly reliable band that not only continue to deliver utterly awesome songs, but fly the flag for the metal underground. New album ‘Artic Thunder’ doesn’t disappoint and we hope you’ll enjoy our cover feature as much as I enjoyed reading it when it landed in my inbox. September is always a time when the music industry recovers from the summer festivals and starts to look forward to closure on the year, and believe it or not, start to think about 2017 and next year’s releases. On the horizon there’s new albums from a newly reformed The Obsessed and Obituary just to whet your appetite already. Next year marks the 30th anniversary of Celtic Frost’s ‘Into The Pandemonium’, so I hope to see some kind of reissue. Noise/Tom G – if you’re reading! In the meantime, the rest of the year will see an awesome line-up at this year’s Damnation Festival in Leeds and a fuck load more releases to look forward to – including amazing albums by Venom Prison, 40 Watt Sun, Lucifer’s Chalice and The Dillinger Escape Plan, to name just a few. I’ve also just finished reading former Cro-Mags bassist Harley Flanagan’s biography which is utterly fantastic. It’s out at the end of this month, we’ll be bringing you an interview next issue...
