(Metal Hammer) Darkthrone have announced they'll launch their 16th album Arctic Thunder on October 14. The Norwegian outfit say all vocals on the follow-up to 2013's Underground Resistance will be performed by singer and guitarist Ted Skjellum, also known as Nocturno Culto, to give the record a "solemn and introverted" atmosphere.

Vocalist and drummer Gylve 'Fenriz' Nagell says: "As I don't like to talk or write about music much, I can say that it is more serious and primitive than usual.

"Vocals are only done by Ted as I thought this would create a more solemn/introvert atmosphere. The album is called Arctic Thunder because it is my favourite bandname - an old, mega obscure Norwegian band from the 80s that I asked permission from to use as an album title.

"Meanwhile, the cover is from the personal camping archives from a trip some years ago to Spalsberget in Norway. It has the usual spruce-tree skyline and also a bonfire." Read more here.
