Immortal is a prominent black metal band from Bergen, Norway. The group began in 1989 as "Amputation", a death metal band. Immortal's early full-length releases were of a traditional, yet complex black metal style, but their acclaimed album At the Heart of Winter saw the band begin to experiment with a fusion of black metal and German thrash. The resulting sound was a style which characterized Immortal's later works. Immortal has been influential to many modern metal artists. Immortal's founders; Abbath and Demonaz, have attained a legendary status in the Scandinavian heavy metal scene. Out of these many bands Immortal has arguably maintained the most occult-mysticism image and way of life traditionally credited to black metal. Their peculiar music style of melodic black metal has guaranteed them a spot on the list of the best bands in the history of the genre, and has most definitely triggered the rise of read more...

IMMORTAL Sons of Northern Darkness

Album · 2002 · Black Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
voila_la_scorie
Not long ago I said to a friend that I was not interested in Norwegian black metal but that I had ordered Peter Beste's coffee table book of the Norwegian black metal scene because I was interested in the photography and the culture. A month later I was trying to decide which would be good albums as starters into this notorious and dark music scene. Another friend suggested Immortal's “Sons of Northern Darkness” and I decided to take his advice and added it to my first four black metal albums.

As it has turned out, I have become interested in Immortal. Abbath is such a character, and Immortal's fantasy northern winter world is a little more comfortable to me than all the hail Satan lyrics that I imagine are lurking out there in the world of Norwegian black metal. Not that I am offended for religious reasons but rather I quickly tire of any pontificating in music lyrics, be they religious or political. When I read that many of the lyrics of Immortal's songs were inspired by the Norwegian winter scenery, the forests and the mountains, I felt I could understand that much better.

First off, I like the sound of this album. The guitar tone is not really heavy but together with the bass the two instruments weigh in together pretty heavily. The drumming is solid and the double bass is put to good use without being relied upon too much. The opening track, “One by One” is a great way to kick off the album and grab my interest as a new listener. It's a great thundering, epic-sounding track. The album continues in a similar vein with “Demonium” offering some blast beats and a speedy tempo in parts, a style I think is more like their older work based on what I have heard from “Pure Holocaust” and “Battles in the North”.

Each of the eight songs here has its own sound and style, making it easy to differentiate between tracks even after the first couple of listens. I find some extreme metal bands follow the same recipe for destruction song after song and sometimes I wonder what ever happened to making albums like “Screaming for Vengeance” or “Number of the Beast” where each song was a creation independent of other tracks and sounded that way. The songs on this album are distinct enough from one another and I am glad for that.

I will say that by the time we are half way through “Antarctica” the fascination with frost, ice, snow, coldness, and bleakness is starting to wear a little thin for me. This track and the album closer, “Beyond the North Waves” are good enough on their own but listening to the album through, I find myself approaching the “meh” stage before “Antarctica” is over. Still, a consistent album in sound and atmosphere.

Finally, I want to comment on Abbath's vocals. I was surprised at how similar they are to Quorthon's of Bathory. Then later I checked out more black metal bands and I have come to the conclusion that Quorthon inspired a whole movement of vocal style. In one part of “Demonium” when the song is charging along, Abbath vocalizes something that immediately reminded me of Popeye the Sailor. That has stuck with me now, too. And so if death metal vocals can be called Cookie Monster vocals then I think black metal vocals could be called Popeye vocals. Or perhaps they already are. Well, if anything, Immortal made me want to go out and buy another Bathory album.

Anyway, “Sons of Northern Darkness” is good enough that I want to get a couple more Immortal albums. And Abbath is such a funny character to see in interviews!

IMMORTAL Blizzard Beasts

Vim Fuego
Black metal has proved to be an enigmatic music form, constantly being redefined and recreated, while progressing little from the original blueprint. The genre's beauty and brutality make uneasy partners, and often multi-instrumentalism creates the former, which can detract from the latter. Immortal however, use aggression to generate the atmosphere on `Blizzard Beasts', rejecting subtlety and embracing ferocity.

The sound on `Blizzard Beasts' is understated rather than the usual necro black metal low fidelity buzz. The vocals are buried deep, little more than a whisper over the raging metal maelstrom. The band's initial impact harkens to a less technical Morbid Angel, and second track "Nebular Ravens Winter" revisits Morbid Angel's "Maze Of Torment" in it's blast sections. The Morbid Angel reference is only fleeting, but it appears more than once, reoccurring on "Battlefields". That's not to say Immortal did not have their own sound - far from it. In places, there is a groove of sorts, and the band was a lot heavier than their peers in a traditional metal sense. While Darkthrone and Mayhem stripped their sound of bass, Immortal weren't afraid of a bit of bottom end.

Demonaz's guitars are the most outstanding feature of the album, all razor sharp rawness and spiky riffs. This is the final Immortal album Demonaz performed on, retiring from playing music due to a repetitive strain injury. Listening to his playing, the injury is no surprise. "Suns That Sank Below" is all cascading riffs and crashing percussion. In fact, Demonaz never seems to let up, knowing only one speed to play - flat out. The song even features a short solo, played at breakneck speed of course, and is well buried under Horgh's relentless percussion.

Horgh himself is a corpse painted, bullet belted, beer gutted wrecking machine. Laugh at the man's image and appearance all you like, but don't ever question his ability. Want to hear some of the hardest hitting black metal drumming you'll ever hear? Try "Winter Of The Ages", where the percussion simply lays waste to all else.

"Mountains Of Might" is a slight change of pace, providing an atmospheric introduction followed by a more traditional Metal song, with reasonably well defined riffs, and Abbath speaking rather than screaming. A semi-acoustic mid section proved the band could do more than just play fast, and even though the overall tempo is still rapid, it is slower than the tracks surrounding it. The sound is icy and bare, and clocking in at over six and a half minutes, "Mountains Of Might" has almost an epic feel to it. Almost.

Abbath's demonic croak is early Quorthon all over. Many passages of the album sound Bathory-esque, but at the same time the vocals sound almost chillingly inhuman.

While the moments of subtlety are few and far between, they provide enough contrast on this album to break up what could have been a monotonous half hour long blast beat. Immortal was never a band for delicacy and finesse, and fans wouldn't expect any. Sure, it's far from original, but so what? `Blizzard Beasts' is brutal, fast and unrelenting. That's what Immortal do so well.

All Shall Fall is the first Immortal album released since the band got back together and their eighth overall, marking the end of the seven year gap since Sons of Northern Darkness. Bassist Iscariah did not take part in the Immortal reunion and has been replaced by Apollyon but the core Immortal line-up up of Abbath and Horgh (with Demonaz behind the scenes providing lyrics) is still intact.

Compared to the three prior albums All Shall Fall sees Immortal's music returning to a less thrashy state. I still think that there is a small thrash metal element on the album but gone is the dominant blackened thrash sound of Sons of Northern Darkness and Damned in Black. Instead Immortal have taken a bit more melodic approach than is heard on their pre-break work and in some ways All Shall Fall is more comparable to the album Between Two Worlds that Abbath did under the name I. It's a solid comeback release for the band but ultimately hasn't stood the test of time for me the way the three previous albums and Battles in the North have and that's because much like their first two albums I just don't find the individual songs as memorable, though I'd personally still more likely spin this one than Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism, Blizzard Beasts and even the ever popular Pure Holocuast.

The seventh Immortal album Sons of Northern Darkness was their last to be released in their original run of activity (it wouldn't be followed up until All Shall Fall in 2009). Officially it bears the same three-piece line-up as performed on Damned in Black, however bassist Iscariah later revealed that he only actually played on the song One by One and the bass on everything else was played by Abbath.

Perhaps more so than with any consecutive two Immortal albums since Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism and Pure Holocaust, Sons of Northern Darkness really does seem to pick up where Damned in Black left off. This is black metal with very strong thrash metal elements. If this had ended up the last Immortal album though they'd have really gone out on a high as it's the closest they've ever come to matching the perfection that is their 1999 album At the Heart of Winter, to the point that despite my firm belief that At the Heart of Winter deserves the recognition as their best it's sometimes really hard to pick between the two. Damned in Black was excellent but Sons of Northern Darkness perfects what the band set out to do with that album and is excellent from the opening thrasher One by One to the lengthy closer Beyond the North Waves.

Damned in Black sees the Immortal line-up return to a three-piece with the addition of Iscariah on bass, making this the first Immortal album that the instrument wasn't played by frontman Abbath.

Damned in Black sort of continues with the black/thrash metal sound of the previous album At the Heart of Winter but in a more direct manner. The songs are shorter again and running time of the album isn't even a full forty minutes, so it's more like the standard Immortal affair of the first four albums in all but sound. I'd say that the real difference to At the Heart of Winter is that the thrash elements are even more pronounced this time. I'd even go so far as to say that Damned in Black is blackened thrash metal rather than thrash influenced black metal. The album is not as strong overall as either At the Heart of Winter or it's follow-up Sons of the Northern Darkness though, but all in all Damned in Black is another high quality Immortal release, possibly one of the more underrated ones along with Blizzard Beasts. Wrath From Above, Triumph and the title track are all particularly great.
