Immortal "All Shall Fall" review
“All Shalll Fall”
1.All Shall Fall
2.The Rise Of Darkness
3.Hordes Το War
4.Norden On Fire
ALL SHALL FALL...!The Blacklords of snow and storm have return to spread destruction,darkness and hate after a temporary death that kept them in the abyss for 7 years.Their new sounds like a mix of “Sons Of Northen Darkness” and the blackened speed project of I .Tons of double bass drum kicking,great quitar riffing and of course...ABBATH screaming and singing the way that made him the most recognizing voice in Black Metal something that was missing those 7 years from the Black scene.
At the music part this release has many Thrash influences that are tide pretty well with the grim melodies of Immortal holding the Black and Icy Feeling that every Immortal fan loved.There are some blastbeats but not many and this thing gives a more Heavy Epic aura.The most Excited songs are “The Rise Of Darkness” a quite heavy song that drives you to break your neck from all the headbanging.”Norden Of Fire” who gives you the feeling that Quorthon never died and composed this Hymn for Immortal.A pretty good song based on Bathory like many other songs of the previus albums.”Unearthly Kingdom”...I have no words to describe it...Another Bathory-like hymn with a killer riffing and a feeling so cold that the north and south pole together cannot create such and icy world..The self titled is the most “In your face” song of the release with a hard as a rock tempo!”Hordes Το War” is like Immortal made a cover for Slayer because it sounds pretty thrashy and very aggresive.
“Arctic Swarm” and “Mount North” will not escape from the heavy epic influence.Horgh’s feet have set on fire at those two songs making the double bass drum to scream for mercy.Not to mention the killer riffing from Abbath And Apollyon.
Personally I believe that it was worth to wait for “All Shall Fall”.If you are stuck to the past releases or you are the kind of fan that likes only the 2 or 3 first albums of any band then you better go hang yourself and don't waste your money or time for this release.
