Is Demonaz back on guitar for the new album? Thought his tendons were fucked and he couldn't play?

Pure Holocaust
Diabolical
Battles
At the heart

Use to love the last two albums when I was younger but not really into them now. Blizzard Beasts has some great songs but the production ruins the whole album.

I doubt any incarnation of the band will ever record anything similar to the earlier material.

‘Battles in the North’ tops the lot here. The most listened to, anyway. Certain fondness for ‘Blizzard Beasts’, too.

The band never broke up Abbath just left and they are suppose to record new material as a two piece or three? (Not sure if Apollyon is still a member)

It's a shame Abbath isn't in the band anymore.

Immortal basically have a drummer from the old lineup and a song-writer who can't play guitar.

Statement up on Facebook today from the band saying they've completed recording of the new album. Demonaz is credited with vocals and guitars so I guess he must be able to play some bit again. Peter Tagtren recorded bass for it.

It has been a pleasure to finish the studio process and most of all being stoked about the final result. Peter Tägtgren has done an outstanding job in producing and mixing it. We now look forward to have it released, and are excited to share our 9th full length with you all."

I'm very interested to hear something from this. I do find it odd that the producer is credited with their recent albums but they claim to be going back to their earlier sound.

Sounds a bit weird alright, at this point im just hoping for great record though not really expecting one. Ive a feeling that its gonna sound like the Demonaz album but with a Peter T production. We'll see..

At the Heart of Winter is my favourite , although there are a few feel-good choons on Sons that I still get wonderful enjoyment out of.

Pure Holocaust isn't as immediate but great album given sufficient time.

Blizzard Beasts, Holocaust, Battles.


I always thought the thing with Demonaz was that he just couldn't really play live or play the older, faster stuff?

Love, love, love Bliazzard Beasts despite the fact that it's clearly not their best album. Few factors - the first one I heard, being addicted to the track 'Mountains of Might' and having it taped with Primordial's 'A Journey's End' on the other side meant I listened to em a lot on the walkman.

It's completely batshit, like, but yeah. Never tire of it.

Got 'At the Heart of Winter' after that. The best of their Manowarblackmetal discs.

The best is easily 'Pure Holocaust' which for better or worse is their clearest artistic statement. Incredible album in that wave of BM generally, not just their discography.

The first one is a well worth digging into too. Little bit more wonky than '...Holocaust' but I love the piss and vinegar nature of it.

'Battles in the North' is also deadly. I thought it was a very moving gesture from them to dedicate an album to the troubles on this very island.

If I recall correctly David Hume mailed Martin McGuinness a taped copy of that album in return for the Masters Hammer demos and they say it touched his Fenian heart to such a degree that the wheels for the Good Friday Agreement were set in motion.

True story.
