Dark, Heavy and Iconic !
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 31/05/2008 13:38:37
This album opens with "One By One", which straight from the word go.....charges forward and stands out, Brutal and thrashy sections of the song introduce to what is going to be one hell of a ride as you progress through the album. - The bridge of "One by One" is genious song writing - Sorry ...I meant the whole album is genious song writing !
The Album has Fast and thrashy aggression aswell as Meatgrinding Heavy sinister songs (such as "Tyrants")
The album isn't too long, and it isnt too short, Its so easy to sit and listen to without getting bored -Most albums it can be hard to sit through because they are so long and repetitive- But Sons of Northern Darkness Doesnt !
In terms of Sound Production, Wow !
Most albums these days are so studio polished that they sound flat and lifeless, but this has the perfect balance..it sounds polished AND has alot of depth ! The song has room to breathe.
This is one of these albums that just stand out !
For example :
Metallica's stand out album is Master of Puppets ...Slayer's stand out album is Reign in Blood....and Immortals stand out album...is Sons of Northern Darkness !!!!
This album.....Is Awesome !!!

This album is simply amazing, thick production which is strange for black metal, amazing riffs all over the place and grisly, grim lyrics sang by Abbath (written as per usual by Demonaz, great storys of the north and the cold). The drumming by Horgh is also excellent, just listen to the beginning of the title track, simply stunning.
My fav tracks are 'Sons Of Northern Darkness', 'Antartica' and 'Beyond the North Waves' but EVERY song on this album is pure and at times beautiful, awe inspiring Black Metal. Buy this album now, you won't regret it!

You cant go wrong with this album if you're into true norwegian black metal. Immortal are legends in the genre and this album is simply pure genious with heavy hitters such as "one by one", "sons of northern darkness", "tyrants" and of course the incredible "beyond the north waves". You simply can not go wrong with this album if you're into metal at all...
