That said, partly because of the production and partly because this is alot heavier and faster than later releases I would suggest that if people want to get their first Immortal album go for one of the later ones like At the Heart of Winter, as they are easier to get into for casual metal fans.
If however you are into your black metal and know what to expect then I cant stress enough what a good album this is. Its one of the all time greatest black metal albums by one of the genres best bands.
You cannot get a harder start for an album, not only does this continue on to the end of the album, but you also see the progression from their last album - Pure Holocaust.
And the last song Blashryk - Mighty Ravendark is just brilliant.They slow the song down to bring a suffocating air to the song. This also gives the band a whole other feel, a much 'deeper' and personal feel.
To give a point -abbath - who took over the drumming from Eric, on the last album, had to slow down for his next album, as the bones in his arms were starting to give up.
This is definatley their best album to date, though At the heart of winter comes pretty close.
If you are thinking of getting any Immortal album buy this.

This is a good example of the better material of the nordic black metal scene. Its a short, intense maelstrom of an album, brutal as an avalanche from start to finish. Read morePublished on 10 Jan. 2004 by Gryph
Battles in the north was on first listen a major disappointment. I say this because the production of the recordings are poor and low quality. Read morePublished on 22 July 2001
