Biography

Most know him as one of the founding members, guitarist and lyricist for legendary IMMORTAL – but now Demonaz strikes hard and fast with his first solo album, March of the Norse! Aiding him are Ice Dale (I, ENSLAVED, AUDREY HORNE) on guitars and bass, and Armagedda (former IMMORTAL drummer, I) on drums. The result is a breathtaking and epic slab of unrelenting and pure 80’s ... Read more in Amazon's Demonaz Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Triumph for Demonaz 7 May 2011
By Paul McNamee TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
There's no doubt about it: with Armagedda on drums and Ice Dale handling the guitar work, Demonaz's March Of The Norse sounds an awful lot like I's Between Two Worlds. The songwriting's similar, the production's similar, the lyrical content's similar. Naturally, I'm over the moon.

For you see, curious Amazon metal fan (?), Between Two Worlds (lyrics courtesy of the man in question) is, in my rarely-humble opinion, the best album of 2006 and one of the best five of the last decade. It's no small wonder then that I'm as excited about March Of The Norse being released as I was for Immortal's last opus (2009's admirable All Shall Fall), as it's clear from the opening moments that this album is that's spiritual sequel: as Abbath is Demonaz's 'demon brother', so too are Between Two Worlds and March Of The Norse siblings of metal majesty.

If you've heard that album, you'll know what to expect: pounding rhythm driving remorseless guitar work. Demonaz (whose vocals here aren't a million miles removed from Abbath's, mercifully sparing us from the spectacle of witnessing a talented guitarist failing horribly whilst trying his hand at fronting a record) deals in fierce metal only, and March Of The Norse sees him on top form, crafting furious slabs of icy riffing without a moment wasted on retrospection or rock balladry.

The record opens with "Northern Hymn", a song that does not belie its title. Demonaz's soulfully intoned vocals and a simply strummed acoustic section make the triumphant onslaught of "All Blackened Sky" all the more exciting. If that opening riff wasn't enjoyable enough, the simplicity of the overlaid second melody instantly hits you with the notion that this album is going to be stuck on your, er, music program for some time to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding album from Demonaz!!! A++ 9 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD
This album is solid through and through!!! Demonaz has once again created a masterpiece (aside from his usual magic touch with his main outlet: Immortal... His (1st) new solo album: March Of The Norse stands on it's own 100% Yet it is a perfect fit with the Immortal catalogue, as well as "I" release. Horns raised to Demonaz! Cheers! \m/!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Between Two Worlds II" 14 April 2011
By L Salisbury - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you loved the Immortal 2006 side-project "Between Two Worlds" as much as I did you'll enjoy "March of the Norse" as much- if not more so! Demonaz' solo album is a more creative and atmosphearic follow-up to the "I" CD. I highly recomend playing them back-to-back! Best songs: "where gods once rode", "under great fires" and "over the mountains"... but there are NO filler tracks here!

One of the best metal CDs of 2011 (so far) along with Beloved Enemy's "Thank You For the Pain" and Burzum" "Fallen"!

4.0 out of 5 stars Bathorimmortal. 4 Oct 2013
By ĸιng ov darĸneѕѕ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bathorimmortal... yes, I made a new word. This album is great! If you took a record written by Quorthon (of Bathory), and had this record played and (obviously) recorded by Immortal - you would have Demonaz's "March of the Norse." Quorthon has nothing to do with this release obviously. The music and lyrics are all written by Demonaz, who most of you know as the "chief song-writer" of the legendary black metal band, Immortal. He is also the former guitarist of Immortal.

Unfortunately Demonaz was diagnosed with acute tendinopathy, which prevents him from playing guitars the way the band is known for. So, as of 1997, Demonaz retired his role as guitar player, but continued to WRITE the music, and also assumed the role of Manager for the band. I had to put that in there because some fans (for whatever reason) think Demonaz quit the band completely, when all he did was stop playing guitar.

This record was released in 2011 after the relase of what (to many fans is speculated to be) the FINAL release from Immortal, entitled "All Shall Fall." It is a staple of the black metal sub0genre knows as Viking Metal (or Norse Metal). It is very Bathory, but also very Immortal. So if you like either of these legendary bands you're sure to enjoy this.

The lyrics are what reminds me most of Bathory. Not that Immortal never had any Viking themed songs, but Quorthon did it best with Bathory. No one can touch his legacy. But the music is pure Immortal. The guitars on this are performed by Ice Dale (I, Enslaved, Ov Hell) and he does a fantastic job. Armagedda provides the drums on this masterpiece, but this is where I must point out my first complaint. While Armagedda is a great drummer who plays flawlessly, his style tends to be repetitious at times. He is GREAT at what he does, but what he does (on this record anyway) is not very adventurous. He likes to play it safe it seems. I say this with all due respect, but I come from the type of black metal where Frost and Hellhammer dominate the genre. So I'm quite spoiled to blast beats and outrageously aggressive drum parts.

Now, don't come into this expecting black metal or anything "extreme." Come at this with an open mind and the expectation of being told a story, or several stories actually. This is truly like a great fantasy novel, mixed with real history. It's a real treat for those of you who want to hear some VIKING metal.

5.0 out of 5 stars "I call my world the Mountains of Fire!", Bathory meets Immortal with grand scale and imagery! 18 May 2011
By James Hall - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Let's be honest. "Demonaz" is straight-up Bathory worship with evocative overtones of Immortal drawn in and the outcome ... is absolutely amazing!

This is one of those album experiences that you walk away from humming aloud and drumming on your lap to. The songs are crazy catchy and really capture that old-norse tale, early Viking-metal sound that Quorthon mastered over 20 years ago! I'm on my 9th spin since I bought it this morning, May 17th, 2011 and I can't stop.

The album sets the stage with a solemn "Northern Hymn" painting the scene for the major theme of this album: What it means to be a Norseman! Track 2 sets a fiery blaze with "All Blackened Sky", a very rousing Norse battle song if I've ever heard one. The album then grabs you by the back of your shirt, throws you onto a horse, and encourages you to take battle to your enemies with spear, cold iron, and sheer Northern force via "March of the Norse", a crushing tune designed to wear an enemy down with intimidation via aural assault! A dictation to those unknowing of Norse determination and purpose with the repeated lyric "March of the Norse!".

This audible weapon of sonic steel continues to cut through the tracks with "Son of the Sword", an introspective battle-cry demonstrating the will to do what must be done, 'dead or alive'. You really feel energized by the music in each of these tracks. By track 4, you are ready to break everything you see in the name of Northern tradition!

But what is a Norseman without his gods to guide his path? The inspiration of a man's battle-lust and pride, "Where Gods Once Rode" is another rousing tune dedicated to those who came before. The warrior "gods" who lead the way, the paths of the gods, now walked by a soldier of fortune. This sentiment is echoed in "Under the Great Fires" with battle taken to the enemy, honoring the fate of warriors.

A man living by the sword and it's ways forever, traveling the path before him, "Over the Mountains" is a glimpse into the soul of a Norseman's warrior heart. My personal favorite on this album, it paints a picture of the journey the Norse must take, their paths always lying beyond mountains and the horizon.

Proclaiming their duty, once again, "Ode to Battle" is the poetry that these Norsemen keep in their souls. It's a very poignant moment in the album as it's somber tone carries weight with anyone who has had to face adversity but has overcome it through force of will and a "brother at side".

The album concludes with "Legends of Fire and Ice", another hair-swaying tribute to those who came before and the essence of Norse existence a man must discover on his own.

"March of the Norse" portrays a cold, icy landscape as befitting of Demonaz and Immortal's musical imagery. While there will undoubtedly be people who call this album repetitive, I think that those people obviously missed the point of this album. It's done this way on purpose. It's a tribute to Northern battle traditions and the meaning that carries with the "men of the mountains". Ice Dale's presence on guitar is absolutely amazing here! I wish Enslaved would let him go like this on their albums! Though I'm sure Demonaz wrote most of the riffs (as the music is attributed to him in the booklet), Ice Dale's fret-dancing style shines through with his usual aplomb! It's also good to hear Armaggeda (ex-Immortal, I) back on the drums. Though he doesn't really get much of a spotlight in the traditional sense, his drum work is poignant and direct. He doesn't need to be flashy here. The drum work really is utilized for the betterment of the tracks. As for Demonaz on vocals - he absolutely is the soul of this album, carrying the spirit of Northern pride and delivering it with incredible force and purpose. He will inspire you! In summation, there is not a thing I can fault this album for other than it being too short! I wanted more and you will, too!

TL;DR - Buy this album right now! If you like Bathory and/or Immortal you will feel right at home listening to these audible tributes to the Norns!

I just listened to this amazing album and I already cannot wait for more meterial from Demonaz. This album feels and sounds in the same vein as Sons Of Nothern Darkness but with it's own fresh edge. Love this album it is beautifully presented and gives me the images if icy mountains and epic battles like Immortal albums do. Well done Demonaz!!! \m/\m/

5.0 out of 5 stars Demonaz came first... 17 April 2013
By Chess Buddhist - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have been really enjoying this album and it hardly has any filler material. "Legends of Fire and Ice" might be my least favorite song, however the eight songs leading up to that track are riveting.

It should be noted that Demonaz, Armagedda and Ice Dale have been making this sound, if not originating this sound, for the last 25 years. It might be safe to say that I sounds like Demonaz, given his intimate working with the band, and not the other way around. So yes, if you like Immortal and I, you will certainly like "March of the Norse."

This album displays a diverse array of guitar progressions and slick drumming. The overall effect comes off as smoother than the Immortal sound. Lyrics evoke the Scan-Norweigen landscape and Viking culture.
