Immortal have suffered for too long in the dreary melodrama of legal scrutiny. All Shall Fall was nine years ago already, and it was 21 years ago that Demonaz made his last appearance on an Immortal album. Abbath, amidst storms of public upset, returned to the music world in 2016 with a tumultuous dud. Northern Chaos Gods might just be the album Immortal needs at this moment.

China was a neat
All shall fall was kinda disappointing, hoping this is better.

I was disappointed in All Shall Fall when it first came out, but it's grown on me a lot over time.

It's going to be weird to have an Immortal album without Abbath on it, but I hope it's good. I loved March of the Norse, so I have no reason to think this won't be somewhere on that level with Demonaz at the helm. It's also pretty cool that Peter Tagtgren played bass for them on this one.

Congratulations. God hates your guts!

Sooo, after 9 years and no Abbath, this is what Immortal sounds like. Overproduced Battles In The North/Blizzard Beasts? Good enough for me consider it's 2018.
Btw, the single alone is better than anything on the Abbath solo album...

Fantastic album. Considered that Pure Holocaust is my fav album from Immortal, this is closely my 2nd favorite already. Fantastic atmosphere and riffs. Chaos and Blashyrkh! 10/10

I have to say it is a very good album, i was expecting something very average and here We are with a solid new record from Immortal despite Abbath's absence, nice!

It's not bad, a servicable replica of days gone, but the modern production and lack of Abbath on vocals sucks out some of the soul of this. There's just so much more exciting black metal around since this comeback. Arguably better than All Shall Fall though. Arguably.

I am the last person who would join a hype, but this album is damn good. Much better than All Shall Fall. If Abbath would've sung it, I would've given it full marks. Demonaz is not bad at vocals though. Abbath should learn from this. His album was kinda bland.

The major factor that makes me always love Immortal is it's original style while they are getting over themselves with every single album. This album is nothing more than Battles in the North\Blizzard Beasts with modern sound...
I was very excited but i think am gonna miss Abbath. Even All Shall Fall was more successful than this because of it's Immortalish uniqueness...

I've listened to this album... and then Winamp switched to the "At the Heart of Winter". The difference in style/quality is to me astronomical. The old albums are much more grim and frostbitten.

If you think this is the best black metal album of the year thus far, you need to listen to more black metal

I don't think my comment suggested that I don't think that, so I'll ignore the straw man and you implying that I'm somehow trying to police what people listen to/enjoy. I simply think that in this case the "whatever they like" you're mentioning is incredibly mediocre and generic

I prefer All Shall Fall, but everything else I totally agree with.

I relistened to that one and I'm not so sure now. All Shall Fall has much more of an "Immortal" feel to it than this one does so that would probably win out after all.

What a shame the rest of the tracks are not even comparable to the opener and that makes it the only song worth listening and hence this total album is slightly worse than All Shall Fall, what a waste. Should've rather released only a single.

If the staff vote it through it will win purely on popularity. Not sure what you think people are capable of doing to prevent that...

Staff nominating what they like. Yeah, that's how it's done and has always been done. There's no conspiracy.
