Staff review by
A new album from Immortal, and as we could thougthfully wait, a new step in their evolution. No matter to talk about the production, as a matter of fact the Abyss Studios (and Peter Tagtarten) are the best recording studios now, and the collaboration with Immortal is close to perfefction.
So let's look to the news in this album. Frist of all we have a new bassist: Iscariah, coming from Enchanted wich made a great work and gives a new weigth to the bass lines troughout the seven songs performing a spectral sound (listen to the first minute of "Against The Tide" to understand what I mean). Than we have a good inspired Horgh behind the drums that made the usual precise and speed rithmic.

Underrated.... Overproduced, but still, it's a great thrashy effort from Immortal.

Not sure why this isn't as highly rated as Sons...It's very similar.

So far weakest Immortal album(to be honest I dont remember ''All Shell Perish'' so well) but from 1th till this, this is weakest, seems to me band lots ''winter'' thematic, but still its Immortal, whit little bit softer sound , but still 95% bands when reach such level, degredeted and play shitty music, Immortal even whit week album still kicking and creating chaos and winter storms and play good black metal , what is true
Life is to short for LOVE, there is many great things to do online !!!

I like it more than at the heart of winter cause it's more powerful and not that slow..

This and Sons of the Northern Darkness are like a double album. Very similar, but the latter gets far more attention. This is one of their best (of the later stuff).
