Immortal finishes writing new album
Norwegian black metal act Immortal has completed the writing process for their ninth studio album. The band has issued this statement:
"This will be our darkest and coldest album in a long time: pure Blashyrkh metal the way our fans know it, with massive, majestic riffs, grim, frostbitten vocals and tales from our mighty realm. Fast and furious tracks, epic tracks and longer playtime than any of our previous albums. "The massive fan support has been very inspiring and we will not let down the fans. This last year, we have completed all the new songs and look forward to record our most passionate album in a long time. The songwriting process has been awesome and we are soon ready to start the recordings. "After the last year's incidents, it was time to go back to the roots to what this band is really about musically, and also to take the integrity of the band back to where it belongs. Cold, grim, uncompromising Blashyrkh metal with a true feeling is what we deliver. We had to focus on making a new album nearly from scratch, which is the main reason why things have taken this much time. We are now looking forward to record the new album and present it to all those who have shown their loyalty and support. Immortal have always been a unique and unstoppable force, and that goes for our fans as well. We will never change our music or attitude."Founding Immortal member, lyricist and guitarist Demonaz will handle vocals. The album title and song titles will be revealed soon.
