Total Death is the sixth album by Norwegianblack metal band Darkthrone. It was recorded in 1995 and released in 1996. All of the album's lyrics were written either by members of other black metal bands or Nocturno Culto (this went against the band's usual practice, in that Fenriz is usually the main lyricist on other Darkthrone albums).
The album was released on CD and LP by Moonfog Productions. The LP has a different cover art. In March 2011, Total Death was reissued by Peaceville Records with an extra track and an extra CD of commentary by the bandmembers. The extra track was recorded around the same time as the album and appeared on a compilation for Moonfog Productions.
