The Underground Resistance
THE EARLY YEARS, AS WRITTEN BY FENRIZ:
"Since i rounded up people to play with in December 1986, there were many problems, the musical direction of people involved (that means, we really COULDN’T play, so any direction was a future hope HA HA HA), money for equipment, different level of involvement (i would ofcourse be a diehard dictator, tormenting the others and they’d taunt me back) and last but not least – too short hair.
In 1987 i struggled ahead with the band while ordering demos and tape trading my ass off, after the summer holidays that year i moved away from Tårnåsen, Kolbotn – to Vinterbro, where i was kinda secluded from the others because of necro public transportation possibilities. I delved furthermore into the magic abyss of 80s metal underground, and i had no other way than ditching members from my band, getting new ones and taking the name DARKTHRONE. We worked onwards and the first result was “Land Of Frost”. Finished in February 1988, i reckon, recorded at our second rehearsalplace in the cellar of the legendary Nagell residence.
