Norwegian black metal legends Immortal unleash Northern Chaos Gods, their first studio album in nearly a decade. Forging a collection without outside influence that takes the band back to their roots, it features eight massive new tracks of merciless speed and icy darkness which clock in at 45 minutes. "We are eternally dedicated to Immortal and our own musical past," explains the band. "The album is conceptual, and the first step in the reclaiming of our past grimness and attitude. Loyalty to the fans and our own musical history is very significant in this. Our new album [features] songs from the very gates of Blashyrkh - the realm of all darkness and cold."
