It rules.

When Darkthrone announced their new album Old Star, they promised it would be "like the 80s never left!" and that the band is "back with the RIFFS and more metal than EVER!!!" Darkthrone was clearly not kidding around about the 80s part, as their new song "The Hardship Of The Scots" is straight up heavy metal goodness.

Old Star is out out May 31 and was mixed by Sanford Parker (LeviathanMinskIndian, etc.). The cover art is done by Chadwick St. John, and here's what the band had to say about the new single.

HI ALL OF YOU! As you may know we have a new album coming out (I am not on social media at all anymore so I don't know what you've seen or heard so far) and Ted said that this time our fans will hear a new song first. So guys here it is – our new track, “The Hardship Of The Scots” and since Ted and me always write our own songs, one song could not fully represent Old Star, but let’s start with this one. Normally the journalists and other scenesters get to check out new albums 2-3-4 months before fans get to hear it, but not this time .. you are first!
