It was here, their second album 'Under A Funeral Moon', where Darkthrone truly mastered their diabolical craft and fully seized and brought forth the fundamental elements of "True Norwegian Black Metal", and it also showed the band's new found adherence to the old adage "less is more". Songs such as "Natassja In Eternal Sleep" and "To Walk The Infernal Fields" are completely absorbing and majestic in their simple nature, but they also have enough spark behind them to avoid being minimalistic, while the epic "To Walk the Infernal Fields" is pretty much a tribute to Bathory's classic track "Enter the Eternal Fire". On 'Under A Funeral Moon', DarkThrone was able to embody the total essence of the intentional definitive vision of the cold and dark ideologies that lies behind true black metal music.
