While the first album "Soulside Journey" from Darkthrone clearly belongs in the Death Metal genre somewhere near other Scandinavian classics Entombed, Dismember, and Therion, the path of its evolution was connecting the breakdown of the rigid structuralism of Death Metal with a nihilistic and yet melodic and rhythmic sound, integrating the elements of "normal" music that manipulated listeners but were unused in the stripped-down, post-hardcore genre of Death Metal.
