Extreme Metal Update 2010

I'll just leave this here...

New Tom G. Warrior! Triptykon's Eparistera Daimones (2010)

Tom G. was in the early extremers Hellhammer, and the seminal Celtic Frost. His new thing is Triptikon, and apparently this was intended to be the last Celtic album. First official Giger album art in quite awhile, but I think they're Swiss buddies. Warrior is curating a night at this year's Roadburn festival - which should be any minute now. Well, another few weeks yet... looks like fun!

New Darkthrone!! Circle the Wagons (2010)

I'd heard that Darkthrone had moved away from the Black Metal they helped establish, but I didn't realize it had gone so punk 'n' crusty. Pretty funny interview with Fenriz at Pitchfork of all places.

[Edit 3/27: Not worth its own post, but here is Fenriz listing his must-have albums. Can't find any previous list that appears to be continued...]
