I heard the title track and man is this crap
boring ass riffs and even roger-over effects on the vocals.
all shall fail, how appropriate
now tell me if the rest is better and i might give it another try after i'm done with at the heart of winter if yes

I think the title track is great, and I really like the entire album at the heart of winter

At the Heart of Winter is the last great album they made. The track "Solarfall" is killer.... (Even though they stole the main riff/drum pattern from Maidens "where eagles dare")

I got this today, and after first listen I was abit bored. Its a mix of old Sodom era Agent Orange and early Bathory on the speedy tracks + the obvious Bathory viking era on the majestics again, but in a regurgitated way. I know Abbath plays from his heart and dont care. Main thing is that he likes this album for himself. For the general fan its great probably, but nothing which inspires, which differs this from the roots of it. They play from the heart, but the pulse is not there anymore. Trust me...I was excited as hell and wanted to feel this album but it failed. Having said that...maybe the album will grow, but I doubt it. I hate the fact that I feel this way about it so far.

I, on the other hand, have nothing but bad expectations for this album...so perhaps I will enjoy when I hear it at some point!

For me Immortal ended on At the Heart of Winter - cool album but surely not black metal. It's more heavy metal to me but had inspiration. After that I don't know they sounded a bit monotonous to my ears...
Nevertheless first 3 albums can't be topped by any way

I didn't expect anything from All Shall Fail. I heard a few tracks and... I think they should split up Laughing

I like it. Not a masterpiece, but not bad at all in my opinion.

The only Immortal album I really like is Sons of northern Darkness... Embarassed

Not a that essential band imho.

I haven't heard it yet. I am not any rush to check it out, at all. The last few Immortal albums were pure shit (in my opinion). So I do not have high hopes for this one.

immortal lost me with blizzard beasts . . . it was weird, but not in a good way, or maybe not weird enough. i will listen to battles in the north and pure holocaust until death though and, fuck, if you can make two albums that great in your life, you really did something, so HAILS!!!

you can tell that this is honestly what abbath wants to do though. that's true. he was always into kiss. when i saw them on tour with satyricon in '99 or '00 the first thing i thought was "fuck, abbath really thinks he's gene simmons!"

it makes me wonder, once again, if most good groups' greatest albums are mistakes? once they tighten up the concept, they lose the magic???
