8 Songs, 42 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

What a comeback. After recovering from tendinitis and a split with Immortal vocalist Abbath, Norwegian black-metal legend Demonaz lays down guitar tracks for the first time in 20 years on Northern Chaos Gods. He taps into newfound aggression and progression, particularly on swashbuckling songs like “Gates to Blashyrkh,” “Where Mountains Rise,” and “Called to Ice.” And drummer Reidar “Horgh” Horghagen sounds like he sprouted extra limbs on “Blacker of Worlds” and “Into Battle Ride.” Over this muscular cacophony, Demonaz relays tales of frostbitten apocalypse: “All light from worlds disappear/I lurk the paths where grimly woods near/Frozen gates call me from there,” he shrieks on the nine-minute closer, “Mighty Ravendark.”

This album is literal Norwegian magic, use with caution.

As I’m driving to Coloradon from Utah, 90-100 degree wether, I put this album on and I swear by the all father, my GPS went blank, it started down pouring rain and every tree I passed spewed out a murder of crows. As the last track Mighty Ravendark was wrapping up, the cursed midwestern sun came out of the clouds and it was back to horrible desert weather. This album is literal Norwegian magic and should only be played with the upmost caution. Or just play it all the time, I’m not your mother.

True 5 star

A big fan of Abbath's work, but Demonaz is unreal and brings back what Immortal truely is. This album from start to finish is amazing. So much depth and sound coming from these guys. Listen to the whole thing you won't be disappointed.
