An influential force in the world of black metal, Darkthrone helped to shape the genre with a masterful and chilling trio of albums at the beginning of the '90s. While digging through albums like A Blaze in the Northern Sky and Transilvanian Hunger is its own reward, anyone seeking a big-picture look at the band's work can check out the compilation Introducing Darkthrone. Over the course of its two discs, the compilation takes listeners on a journey through Darkthrone's entire history, starting with their early death metal phase and going all the way through to 2010's Circle the Wagons, giving newcomers a bird's-eye view of the band's innovative career.
