Warthur
Immortal's experiment in blending their classic black metal style with thrash metal gets back on track on Sons of Northern Darkness, a confident and intriguing album which on In My Kingdom Cold presents what might be the perfect one song introduction to the frostbitten and fantasy-inspired Immortal aesthetic. Sweeping, epic and majestic (to the point where I could swear they were listening to a lot of Bal-Sagoth at some points, such as on the closing Beyond the North Waves), this is the sort of followup the classic At the Heart of Winter truly deserved. Along with Pure Holocaust and At the Heart of Winter, this is top tier Immortal.
