Track: Darkthrone – Hate Cloak

Jørn Steen

Following the announcement of the bands new album, ‘Eternal Hails’, read the news here, which is due 25th June, the band have shared the track ‘Hate Cloak’. This is to be the only track to be revealed ahead of the album’s release. The 9min 17 seconds, Fenriz penned, hallowed epic “Hate Cloak” is steeped in the majestic thunder of vintage heavy doom metal.

Fenriz comments 

“Hate Cloak is certainly the slowest song on the album, there are plenty of “fast” parts on Ted’s songs, middle tempos and slow as well. The whole point of us having long songs is variation in tempos/pace, hence the epicness”

Dragging chords from the early days of Black Sabbath through some heavy doom and into the present day. Switching gears to become a heavy grinding riff, ‘Hate Cloak’ is epic in length and epic in sound. A building crescendo of guitars and scratchy vocals, this is as good as it gets from these legends of the metal scene.
