If there was a Museum of Old Metal, Darkthrone’s Fenriz would be first in line for the curator position. Perhaps this quote would find its way onto his application: “My motto is the one who’s heard the most music wins. And I haven’t met anyone who can beat me yet.” The metal closest to his blackened heart is from the late 70s and early 80s and he has been an outspoken critic of modern metal. An avid collector and list maker, Fenriz will often share information on his new discoveries in liner notes and on the web. He will also contribute a "Band of the Month" feature to the Swedish metal magazine Close-Up beginning with the May 2011 issue. He is a legend of metal both as a performer and a listener. So, if he were to take the whole spotlight on a Kiss-style solo album, what would we get? The answer can be downloaded below. It came easy because the songwriting has been clearly divided between Fenriz and Nocturno Culto over the last several Darkthrone albums. If I could only release this in vinyl . . .
