Battles in the North is Immortal’s third studio album, released in 1995 this was definitely Immortal’s first turning point. This album is of the Black Metal genre but there are some strong elements of thrash metal as well. This is one brutal black metal album, when people think of Immortal they think of average paced black metal. That couldn’t be further from the truth and this album proves it. Battles in the North definitely has some distinguishable differences from their last album Pure Holocaust. First of all this album seems to sound a lot more raw and darker. Aside from all the linearity that almost killed this album, it still features some gut busting brutality in the music with some of the best blast beats in black metal not to mention it’s atmospheric side as well. This is all thanks to the awesome recording quality which puts all the components of the music together nicely.

Immortal's Battles in the North. Immortal consists of: Abbath: Vocals, Drums, Bass Demonaz: Guitars. What was good about the album: - For fans of melodic black metal, you'll probably be into this band. Immortal doesn't show any sign of changing from their original sounds. Every song is loaded with almost thrashy guitar riffs with a very distinct production. There are plenty of changes in the songs so you probably won't find yourself thinking that the song is the same thing, which is something that certain black metal bands like Darkthrone would do. - For fans of speed metal and thrash, you'd probably be intrigued by this album. Just about the entire time this album is simply beating you into submission with its blast beats and constant double bass drum abuse. Metal drummers out there wouldn't find anything really innovative, but it's still solid nonetheless. Abbath does a very solid job and gets a thumbs up from me. Album (Studio full-length).
