Immortal have risen from the white ashes to reclaim their throne as kings of black metal. Not many bands have been as important to a genre of music than Immortal have been to black metal over the years. Now the band are back with their first album in seven years, All Shall Fall.

The album carries on exactly where Sons Of Northern Darkness finished. Stylistically All Shall Fall is extremely similar, the guitars are very melodic and as a whole the album stays at the same familiar pressing pace without going overboard. The frostbitten trio show no signs of cobwebs, but there is also no apparent attempt to create something truly spectacular. All Shall Fall, although a brilliant come-back album, is a bit too steady and safe to be hailed as one of the band's greatest works.

Lost some of the awesome thrashiness that made Immortal so good and replaced it with generic melodic black

Preferred this by a margin to Sons of Northern Darkness. I say by a margin because there's not a whole lot in it, maybe that to me the predecessor is slightly bottom-heavy whereas All Shall Fall is more consistent in its track placements. The title track and very Bathory-esque "Hordes to War" for example are explosive, energetic and definitely display the band's thrashier side. On the flipside, closer "Unearthly Kingdom" is more melodic, bit of a slow-burner but has brilliant riff work throughout. Wonder if we'll ever get another Immortal album. If not, All Shall Fall will be one hell of a way to bow out.
