Buy this masterpiece!!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sons of Northern Darkness (Audio CD)
After purchasing and loving All Shall Fall I wanted more Immortal! At the recommendation from a number of people and several reviews of others I finally purchased Sons Of Northern Darkness. I knew that One By One was a live favourite and hoped it would live up to my expectations and it certainly did. One By One is truly amazing as an album opener, a black metal track and a bonafide metal classic that WILL stand the test of time! And we're still on the first track of the album!!! Sons Of Northern Darkness just continued to blow me away with its icy melodic black metal. Tracks like Tyrants, In My Kingdom Cold, Antarctica and Beyond The Northern Waves are quite simply amazing! My personal favourites are Tyrants, with its slow tempo melodic mid section, and Antartica with its chilling polar wind/synthesizer intro giving way to bombastic rhythm and guitar harmonising.
The only negative (and its a minute negative) I have is that I find myself skipping Demonium and Within The Dark Mind to get to other tracks on the album as I simply like them more. Thats it. Nothing major to worry about.
I cannot praise this album enough! Not only has Sons Of Northern Darkness made me a massive Immortal fan it has changed my life. I know that sounds cheesey but it truly has! I knew little of black metal until I encountered Immortal! May they continue onwards for many years to come!
Just buy this metal masterpiece!
