Immortal

Of all the Norwegian black metal bands, Immortal has, arguably, stuck the closest to the mystical, occult-inspired vision of the scene: the bandmembers kept the evil-Kiss makeup throughout the band's existence, rarely experimented outside of the traditional guitars-drums-bass instrumental configuration, and never revealed their real names. Brothers in pseudonyms only, vocalist/bassist Abbath Doom Occulta and guitarist Demonaz Doom Occulta formed Immortal in Bergen, Norway, in 1990. Abbath was originally a member of Old Funeral, a death metal garage band that also included Varg Vikernes, who would later gain notoriety not only with his own project, Burzum, but for murdering Mayhem guitarist Euronymous; Demonaz had split from fellow Bergen scenesters Amputation. (Notably, Immortal always willfully separated itself from Mayhem's oft-felonious black metal "inner circle" scene in Oslo, and downplayed its relationships with its members.) Inspired by the robust Norwegian forests and bitter cold climate, Abbath and Demonaz conceived the fictional, demon-and-battle-filled realm Blashyrkh, a foundation upon which all of Immortal's lyrical journeys would rest.

The duo recruited drummer Armagedda and, briefly, second guitarist Jorn Inge Tunsberg, who left the fold after Immortal cranked out two demos, Suffocate and Northern Upins Death. Preferring to remain a three-piece, the band recorded the Unholy Forces of Evil/The Cold Winds of Funeral Frost 7" for the French label Listenable Records in 1991, which eventually led to Immortal's contract with another French imprint, Osmose Records. Their debut full-length, Diabolical Full Moon Mysticism, was released in 1992 (distributed in North America by JL America); a more atmospheric, slower-tempo release than the majority of Immortal's contemporaries. When Abbath and Demonaz began incorporating more blast beats in their songwriting, Armagedda quit, forcing Abbath to perform all drum tracks on Immortal's two highly influential albums, 1993's Pure Holocaust and 1995's Battles in the North. However, drummer Grim was pictured on the Pure Holocaust album cover, and would perform on Immortal's first full-fledged European tour in 1993, prior to being fired (he would go on to play drums for Gorgoroth and Borknagar, eventually committing suicide in 1999). Mayhem skinsman Hellhammer temporarily filled the drum seat for the band's live commitments and the home video Masters of Nebular Frost, until Horgh could be permanently added to the lineup.

It was after the 1997 album Blizzard Beasts was released that Immortal would be dealt its most serious blow. With an acute case of tendonitis in his arms, Demonaz could no longer play guitar with the speed and intensity Immortal required, and was forced to leave the band, although he remained the group's lyricist. Abbath switched from bass to guitar, and the group filled its bass slot with Aeturnus four-stringer Ares strictly for touring duties. Demonaz's absence left the band's songwriting burden purely on Abbath, who began penning more progressive, dynamic, and epic pieces. Abbath would perform all instruments except drums on 1999's highly acclaimed At the Heart of Winter full-length, which marked the beginning of the band's relationship with producer Peter Tagtgren (singer/guitarist for Hypocrisy), who recorded Winter and its two follow-up albums at his soon-to-be-legendary Abyss Studios. Bassist Iscariah was then permanently added to the lineup, which put out Damned in Black in 2000, and led to Immortal's first full-fledged North American tour with fellow Norwegians Satyricon. In 2001, the band, looking for better U.S distribution for its albums, severed its longtime relationship with Osmose and signed to Nuclear Blast Records, which released Sons of Northern Darkness in 2002. ~ John Serba

Carach Angren? Er… buh.

They look like the dudes and dudettes from Abyssos or Anorexia Nervosa (does anyone remember them?)… dainty and generic. The music isn't bad but it's not great either. Same goes for the corpse paint.

The corpse paint does look pretty cool but it seems like they like to be a bit ridiculous
Report as inappropriate
I think it's kind of a joke to them as in acting all serious and laughing at the fact that people think they're being serious they probably take their music respectively seriously but I think their image is a bit of a joke to them
Report as inappropriate
They look like retards and their so called music is just hack and noise and cliched metal riffs. I will once again give them a thumbs down in the hopes that Pandora does not subject me again to such an affront to my well trained ears. Corpse paint ? Seriously, Alice Cooper did it 45 years ago and did it better.

Kiss paint??? WTF -.- corpse paint dumbass.

@bobonnit- how is wearing corpse paint a gimmick?? I don't think they give a s**t about whether you take them seriously. They must have talent if they were a band for for just about 25 years. So that logic is just absurd, bud.

The whole purpose of the corpsepaint, other than tradition is much like their stage names, anonymity .... Go back to your linkin park and nicleback, it's quite safer especially for a p**sy like u.... I mean, u had to use the bio bullshit as a weapon. Not even bright enough to come up with a dis on ur own. Do your homework next time n**ga cuz there's always someone sharper than you... Not me per say... But the rest speaks for itself. Have a good one oh uneducated one

LMAO @ Anders- Offline…
I spent the first 21 years of my life in the northern part of Scandinavia and there are maybe a handful of true hard core black metal dudes out there who'd actually get into a fight. Most of them are just scrawny misunderstoo d high school kids with black hair running around in leather and spandex and je*king off to Euronymous' pictures. I love the metal scene there but there's no throat ripping or village burning going on. Silly Wannabe-Sata n i s t s … Wantanists lmao!

So, you want him to come all the way to Norway, so that you can kill him and THEN come all the way to the U.S. and burn his town?

Why not just come here and kill him and THEN burn his village.

P.S. It doesn't look like you would be killing anyone, unless it is with your comedy.
