The masters of the riff are back again. So soon, you ask? Well, it appears that Fenriz and Culto have taken the whole old-school values thing completely to heart, and are going to give us a new album every year. But hey, who's complaining other than Transilvanian Hunger purists?

'Dark Thrones and Black Flags' follows on pretty closely from last year's 'F.O.A.D.', and if you enjoyed that last blast of black aggression, you're going to find plenty to love on this new disc. It's all still here: the low-fi "Necrohell II" production, the black metal-tinged with-old school metal-tinged with-punk-tinged with-whatever the hell the gruesome duo feel like, and the great 80s-esque cover. I'm wondering whether this fellow on the front is going to become some kind of Darkthrone Eddie...

Josefus have continued to remain on the fringes of rock greatness since their late-'60s and early-'70s flash-fire of regional popularity. Highly Zeppelin derivative, the band did nonetheless have a unique trajectory — something in that Houston water for sure — that married the plodding British blues with a healthy dose of Texas swagger.

During the period between '81 and '84 we all know well that Black Flag were involved in a legal battle with Unicorn/MCA that ended up keeping the band from releasing any new material or anything with their name on it throughout the battle's duration. But, when the dust settled in 1984 Black Flag rose once again, this time with a slightly heavier sound and a very muscular Henry Rollins. This was a major turning point for the Flag, and, although they lost many of their "Punker than thou" followers, they created an original, heavy, hardcore sound that to this day hasn't been recreated.

Centered around two chords, 1966's "Season Of The Witch" took the psych-folk direction of "Sunshine Superman" to new heights.
