Under a Funeral Moon is the cream in the Oreo of Darkthrone's Peaceville trilogy, a cream that seems to be overlooked by fans - most likely due to the change in ingredients. It's only a slight change, but a change nonetheless. Compared to her siblings, she's the ugly one of the bunch, but definitely the smartest.

I love this album. Either this or A Blaze In the Northern Sky is my favorite by Darkthrone.

Probably my favorite album from the Black Metal era Darkthrone.

They shake your hand and they smile and they buy you a drink
They say we'll be your friends we'll stick with you till the end
But everybody's only looking out for themselves
And you say who can you trust I'll tell you nobody

I wasn't expecting much from this album, considering that it was the follow-up to the monumental 'A blaze in the northern sky', but it certainly performs as well as that album. Obviously the songs are shorter and more 'immediate', but there is a lot to like about this album if you're a fan of Black Metal. 'Natassja in eternal sleep' and the aptly titled 'Unholy Black Metal' prove to be excellent slabs of raw Black Metal, whereas the epic 'To walk the infernal fields' (which resembles 'Enter the eternal fire' by Bathory to me) and brilliant title track shows the band's great songwriting skills. 'Summer of the diabolical holocaust' and 'Inn I De Dype Skogers Favn' don't impress me as much as the aforementioned tracks, but they're still generally solid.

This for me is the best out of the Unholy Trinity. Scandinavian Black Metal is Under a Funeral Moon. It's just the openness of the sound that was so striking when I first heard it. Transilvanian Hunger just did not give that to me as much as Funeral Moon did. It is Darkthrone at their most aggressive and brutal, every sound pierces you to the bone.
