Darkthrone premiere track from new album, Astral Fortress
We’ve brought you news previously of Darkthrone‘s new album, Astral Fortress. Now, with the album release just a week away, we’re delighted to be able to share the lyric video for the track ‘Caravan Of Broken Ghosts’.
The video was filmed by Fenriz and created by Matthew Vickerstaff, Fenriz himself explaining: “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!” Fenriz offers additional insight himself right here…
‘Caravan Of Broken Ghosts’ will be available on all major streaming platforms from 20 October and the album itself will be released on Peaceville on 28 October. Astral Fortress follows on from 2021’s acclaimed Eternal Hails album, and maintains the band’s prodigious output of recent years.
You can check out the video for the new single here…
Astral Fortress was recorded at Chaka Khan Studios in Oslo, the same location used for Eternal Hails, with Ole Øvstedal and Silje Høgevold and the album was mastered by Jack Control. Astral Fortress is available to order here.
