5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing New Album From Abbath and Co., 24 Nov. 2006
If you like Immortal in any way, especially the latter albums like 'Sons of Northern Darkness' & 'At The Heart of Winter' and classic heavy metal in general you will really love this album. The first track 'The Storm I Ride' is a real scorcher and a great opener just like 'One by One' from Sons of Northern Darkness' minus the blast beats and with more lead guitaring from the excellent Ice Dale of Enslaved fame. Their are quite a good few standout tracks most notably 'Warriors, Between Two Worlds, Mountains, Days of North Winds and the very impressive 'Far Beyond The Quite' with its majestic and stunning guitar riff that is a tribute to Bathory and the late Quorthon. I would would really recommend that you buy the DigiPac of this album because both 'Bridges on Fire' & Shadowed Realms' are magnificent tracks and by no means filler. The drumming is pretty good as well and is courtesy of Armagedda who appeared on Immortals debut album back in 1992. Lyrics are excellent and imaginative as always with Demonaz who came up with the goods as always. So buy this album and you will be very impressed.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Gothic Album that was ever Created, 21 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Fields Of The Nephilim (Audio CD)
I only heard this album two two years ago when I got it on tape but once I got into it I was utterly amazed by the sheer excellence of the musicianship and the song writing, it was like finding hidden tresure it was that good. Since then I have been obssessed with the band and have bought all their albums including the excellent 'Mourning Sun'. It has some very beautiful and evocative epics like 'Love Under Will' and the majestic climax of 'Last Exit For the Lost' that will leave you both spellbound and stunned. If you are into old and classic gothic bands like the Sisters, Joy Division, The Cure & The Mission, this will be truly worthy of your time and money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crafted in the Meadows of Paradise, 20 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Elizium (Audio CD)
I first heard this amazing album a few years ago when I was only new to the band and I have never looked back since then. I didn't get into the it on my first listen, it took about 5 or 6 listens to fully appreciate the sheer majesty, beauty and the pure unrivalled genius of this album. It is definitely an album that you can lie on your bed with the lights out and imagine that you are on another plane of existence, or perhaps that you are back in ancient Sumerian times and listening to it from start to finish without skipping a single track. The only possible gripe I have with this awesome album is that 'For Her Light' is cut a bit too short and ends very abruptly: but its only a minor fault with a flawless and otherwise timeless piece of musical art like this. But if I was to burn a copy for a friend I would definitely put the full version of 'For Her Light' on instead of the cut version and possibly Psychonaut on as well. One unfortunate thing about this band of superb musicians is that not very many people have heard of them and would possibly be quite ignorant of great music like this and would rather listen to their bland and generic made for the masses top 40 charts music and what not. To all you goth wannabes who listen to fake so-called manufactured Gothic bands like Evanescence, My Chemical Romance & Aiden etc you should listen the true godfathers of the genre.
