IMMORTAL, the pioneers of Norwegian black metal, recently released their long awaited 10th studio album “War Against All”, via Nuclear Blast Records. The band’s 10th studio album feature 8 new songs in the classic IMMORTAL style. Alongside the album, IMMORTAL also release da brand new lyric video for the song ‘Return To Cold’.  

The band’s founder Demonaz stated about the single: “”Return To Cold’ was the second song I wrote for this album. The guitarwork is in the old insisting, Immortal style with just a handful of riffs. To make it feel even more like a song from the earlier albums, there is no big breaks, guitar solos, or other distractions. A powerful open main riff together with the majestic harmony and gloomy clean guitars created the frame for another atmospheric, distinct and characteristic Immortal song. The lyrics was written outside, on my walk through the forest, up the mountainside, to the cold windy tops, embracing the power and the timeless feel from winter. – It is a definite return to cold, and like the rest of the album… a tribute to the longstanding Immortal fans.””

Demonaz also offered some more background on the process of making “War Against All”: “Even though the studio work is necessary to get an ultimate recording, the writing process is obviously my favorite. I still write all the guitar riffs/music at home with the same old vibe, and the lyrics as well. The early days of black metal inspire me the most. Cold nights in the woods, on the mountains under the winter moon. That’s what keeps the spirit alive, and the foundation of all our music”

“It’s actually the same studio where I recorded the guitars and vocals for Northern Chaos Gods. They also did a great job with the new album, and it was a pleasure to go back and work there again. I am especially pleased with the outcome of this one. It´s got that cold-biting guitar sound, yet powerful production.”

IMMORTAL have never compromised on the original vision, taking fans on a journey through Blashyrkh with our most grim and dark music, with every new release. These songs are no exception to this. I am proud of the final result, it’s got a distinct expression, and I can‘t wait to let the fans hear it!” 

The album’s cover artwork was done by the Swedish artist Mattias Frisk.

IMMORTAL, from the Norwegian town Bergen, established themselves as one of the most important black metal bands in the world. Formed by Demonaz (guitars) and Abbath (bass/vocals) in 1990, the band released their first three albums, “Diabolical Fullmoon” “Mysticism”, Pure Holocaust”, and Battles In The North” during the years 1992-1995. The very first records established and defined the musical style the band became infamous for.

The band then released the Blizzard Beasts” album in 1997. Shortly after, Demonaz was diagnosed with a shoulder injury. He still continued to work with the band but stopped playing guitar live. Abbath changed from bass to guitar, and the band continued with different bass players over the years, releasing the albums “At The Heart Of Winter” (1999),  Damned In Black” (2000), and Sons Of Northern Darkness” (2002). In 2003 the band was put on ice, but returned to the stage in 2007 and did several headline appearances and tours across Australia, New Zealand, and the USA. All Shall Fall” was released in 2009, followed by further massive festival shows and additional concerts worldwide.

In 2015, IMMORTAL and ex-singer/guitarist Abbath went their separate ways. In 2018, IMMORTAL returned with Demonaz performing on guitar once again, and as the band’s vocalist, releasing its 9th studio album, Northern Chaos Gods”, which was very well received by both fans and the press.
