Does Darkthrone ever tour or play live anymore? IIRC the closest thing to a live Darkthrone concert recently was Nocturno Culto + Satyricon at Wacken 2004 playing all of 2 Darkthrone songs


No tours no concerts, despite the obvious demand. Fenriz "could have been a rich bitch" if he'd accepted all the money offered to him for touring DT, according to one of his video interviews.

Ah pulling a Burzum/Bathory (plus tons of other bands I can't think of) then. Oh well, it happens.

I would mortgage my house to go see them if Darkthrone ever did decide to cash out on a tour.

Darkthrone tour - if you havent heard about it its because your just not 'kvlt' enough. They have Secret necro underground Norwegian BM shows, to which only the 'true' are invited.

I actually have always suspected that! That is brilliant. Exclusive show for the who's who and in the know.

Yet, if they are just playing for their inner peers, wouldn't that just be the same as jamming? i.e. "singing to the choir? In other words, if a tree falls down in a Transilvanian Forest, does it still make a sound? Or is just that wind they call the Dungeon Shaker!!

Well, with the BM releases such a huge part of that music was the atmosphere that it would be in danger of falling really flat in a live setting.

Pure speculation, but I kind of suspect that this new DT direction over the last 3 albums might be them gearing up towards making a full set of tour-able "classics". Like Motorhead have earned 25 years' worth of beer tokens by playing the exact same material every year, I think that DT could be well suited to a sort of on-the-road retirement plan.

I agree with that, but there is something special about watchin those skater kids fall and bust their asses when you crank up some modern Darthrone.
