Darkthrone drummer and composer Fenriz introduces a new series of Peaceville Records podcasts with a retrospective on classic underground metal and influences on his own style. As usual, expect Fenriz’ unique sense of humor and eclectic but visionary taste in metal.

    He constantly mentions Bulldozer as one of his primary efforts even as much as Bathory and Hellhammer. What do guys think of Bulldozer ?

    I like their 1987 IX album. It’s a speed metal – death metal hybrid with a few black metal overtones typical of the time it was released. Their 2009 album is also quite fun. Just that. Fun.
    .
    In any case, to me Bulldozer seem irrelevant to the development of black metal.

      Will have to check them out since it’s not the first time I’ve heard him mention them either. Other stuff just kept coming up though.

    Wow! Crossing the Triangle of Flames was directly influenced by the opening riff in Mayhem’s Freezing Moon. Never noticed, but yeah, it makes perfect sense now that I listen to it.

    Well I like Fenriz (despite not liking Darkthrone since after Total Death, I doubt if he even truly does himself in all honesty) and I’ll definitely be staying tuned for more of these ‘podcasts’. I don’t even own any sort of i-pod or whatever but it’s just a little nostalgia perhaps as listening to late night metal radio shows was pretty much all I had access to back in the day, and the source of lots of great new material (sifting through for dross at the same time lol).

    Would love to have been able to check out other more famous radio shows for that matter; DJ Vijay had a show yeah? and NHV apparently ran an ambient show at some stage. It’s a pity none of this got recorded and archived etc but I guess that sense of it being something fleeting and novel is kind of what makes it special in way.

        Thanks very much for signposting this resource. Luckily I’m no audiophile but merely interested in the music. And the Goat’s somniferous sermonizing of course.
