Circle the Wagons is the 14th album by the Norwegian band Darkthrone. The album was released on 5 April 2010. Fenriz, the band's drummer, described the music as Darkthrone's "own brand of heavy metal/speed metal-punk"[4] and declared it a further shift from their old black metal style.[5] About half of the album was written by Fenriz and half by Nocturno Culto.

The catalog number "ANTI-KING OV HELL 001" appears in the liner notes of the album.[6]
