DARKTHRONE / Panzerfaust (1995)

This fifth release kicks the ass but confuses the head while doing so.  It starts off with a typically Norwegian sound as you’d expect but then it slows down and begins to sound like Celtic Frost without Tom G.  I love me some early CF, don’t misunderstand, but the repeating change from one to the other makes for a choppy listening experience, especially if you've been bathing in the ‘Unholy Trinity’ just prior to Panzerfaust.  To put it plainly, there's some excellent tracks but very little coherence; it’s more like a compilation.
