Staff review by
Hate Them is perhaps an overlooked release in the Darkthrone discography. Their first three (or four) black metal releases are oft hailed, while the rest of their prolific output is dismissed by the few, the tr00, the corpse painted.

Hate Them features some of the aggression and speed of their earlier works, yet has some dynamics and significantly improved production values.

I guess this is really the first Darkthrone album which showed them beginning to embrace the crust punk influence and integrate into their core black metal style, though this album still favours the black metal sound for the most part. I prefer this to the band's last album, though not by enough to rate it any higher. The opening song for me dragged on a little too much towards the end to be fully enjoyed, but pretty much every other song is classic Darkthrone.
