You know what's interesting? Taking a look at a band who has had a long career and how their new material can sound absolutely nothing like their older stuff. Darkthrone for instance! I just read a thread on the Metal Archives forums where most people posting seemed to believe the band still plays Black Metal.
I just listened to Circle the Wagons and it sounds so far from Transilvanian Hunger that a lot of people could probably unknowingly think it were a different band. Like someone in the thread mentioned, Fenriz sounds like he is doing the vocals drunk. Yeah early bands like Celtic Frost and Bathory had a lot of punk influence but I don't really see any of the faster riffing on this album that those bands used.
What a mess!
