INTO THE UNKNOWN

NOT ONLY ARE CELEBRATING THEIR 30TH ANNIVERSARY, BUT THEY ARE SHOWING NO SIGNS OF STOPPING WITH THE RELEASE OF FORMIDABLE NEW ALBUM ‘FIRES WITHIN FIRES’. MOUTHPIECES SCOTT KELLY AND STEVE VON TILL DISCUSS ITS CREATION AND ADDRESS THE FUTURE

“I THINK IF YOU QUESTION WHAT YOU’RE DOING TOO MUCH YOU LOSE THE MAGIC”

Few acts can lay claim to a legacy like the one that Oakland luminaries Neurosis boast. Prior to celebrating their 30th anniversary with a glut of performances in the US and Europe (including two historic and unforgettable sets at Roadburn Festival in The Netherlands), the quintet finished their twelfth studio album, the mammoth and primal beast, ‘Fires Within Fires’.

“We got together in February 2015 for a couple of weekends in a row,” Steve Von Till recalls in his warm, gruff tone. “Normally we start with a few ideas but this time we had nothing. We put aside time outside of work to generate a few ideas and by the end of the following weekend we had the skeleton for the entire record. It’s never happened that fast. We didn’t have time to work again until that November but we felt confident that we were ready to book the studio with Steve Albini in December. We all knew the material and worked on our own parts, but the album almost presented itself to us. We don’t operate in a cerebral way. Our music is very instinctive.”

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...
