This is great black metal, Immortal is one of the finest black metal bands out there.
Dead_Girl
Overall, this album is an A+ masterpiece, and one of the best Black Metal releases I've ever listened to.
Jeremy Brackeen
Much has been inferred concerning this album's direction since it was Immortal's first without Demonaz.

Now, I already reviewed the first version of this album, and being that it is in my top 5 favorite albums of all time, I figured I might as well add my review to the re-release. Also,don't mind the amazon review, that is for their first album released many years before this one.

Few albums come along in ones life where the music leaves you so speechless. For me, this is one of them. This is not only Immortal's best work in general but one of the greatest Black Metal albums ever to be released. Nothing can top Abbath's brutal riffs and his throat ripping vocals. The atmosphere of Darkthrone is here and the talent of Emperor. However, between all that makes this cd a masterpiece is some true beauty. Such as the main riff in Solarfall and the intro in At the Heart of Winter for a few examples. This is a true masterpiece of winter beauty and winter carnage.

1. Withstand the Fall of Time (8:29) The first track begins with a single riff before the rest joins in, while the riff not really memorable will grow on you. The first minute is spent gearing up before the song gets into full speed. About 3 and a half minutes into the song it slows down before getting a second wind about 4:15 into it and doesn't stop until the song quietly dies out. WOnderful opening track. I could not think of a better song to open up this album. 4.5/5

2. Solarfall (6:02) Immortal's best song of all time. A short drum roll falls in follwoed by one of my favorite riffs of all time then hell is broken loose upon an unsuspecting listener. The song does not let up for one second and has some of their best drumming as well. The vocals are enough to make you wish to conquer all you face.

The song does not let up for one secodn and has some of their best drumming as well. The vocals are enough to make you wish to conquer all you face. The vocals are almost dreadfully slow in a good way, almost like you wonder how he isn't tearing all of his vocal chords. The song slows down2:20 into it with some slow drumming but soo returns with that crushing riff. Best song here. 25/5

3. Tragedies Blows At Horizon (8:55) This song is 8 minutes and 55 seconds of pure magic.

Immortal's ridiculously fast approach to their special frostbitten brand of black metal gets a slight overhaul on this album. the production becomes a bit more crystalized and the tunes get a bit more melodic. the pace has slowed down a bit with a focus more on a mid paced thrashy kind of groove that suits them well. the same lyrical themes are present as on past records: epic battles atop frozen mountaintops and tributes to the fictional kingdom of Blashyrkh adorn these songs. but which icy warlord approved this particular photo session? oh my. heehee...no matter, a small misstep (albeit a hilarious one) that only adds a whole new level of fun to this album. At The Heart Of Winter may not appeal to the diehard Immortal fans who think that they are no good without the non-stop blur of blast beats; but for those who like a bit of melody with their grim blackened metal should not hesitate inspecting this colossal masterpiece.

This is not my first Immortal release, nor shall it be my last, but when I first heard At the Heart of Winter, I could not believe how majestic and cold the melodies were! They were simply fantastic! The musicianship is absolutely awesome, Horgh is a great drummer and his work is very good on this album, although I don't think it's the greatest drumming I've ever heard on an Immortal cd. Abbath's vocals are cold as usual, they don't really change much, though, the riffs on this album are simply FANTASTIC! The technicality presented here is among the finest guitar work I have ever heard in Black Metal, every riff is cold and beautifully melodic, where some BM riffs are simple and utterly pointless, without naming names. The guitar fills are simply fantastic, Abbath does a great job replacing Demonaz as lead guitarist, who left due to Tendonitis in his arms. I jsut can't stop saying it.... the riffs are so fast, so cold, so melodic, so perfect and so technical..... This cd really inspires me when writing music.

The bass mainly just follows the guitar or drums so there's not much to comment on there.

Every song is simply fantastic, my favourite being Withstand the Fall of Time, only by a hair, the rest are simply amazing anyway. The only moment that this cd dropped off are in Tradgedies Blow at Sunset, which I believed went too long.

Overall, one of the greatest cds I have ever heard, I would recommend this to anyone who like Melodic Death Metal (not saying it is, I'm saying you'd like it!) or Black Metal.

P.S, This is not Death Metal, they are not DM masters as it says in the Product Description! Do not be fooled! :)
