I Band Photo black metal friday

After yesterday’s not so surprising announcement from Immortal frontman Abbath that he is disbanding that pioneering Norwegian black metal band due to an ongoing disputes with his longtime bandmates, I started thinking about the absolutely exceptional record that he crafted in 2006 with his metal supergroup I. In addition to Abbath the band features his Immortal bandmate Armagedda, along with Gorgoroth bassist TC King, and Enslaved’s Ice Dale.

Abbath has always said that the group is not a one-off despite the fact that their one and only record thus far, the mind-blowing Between Two Worlds, is nearly ten years old. The singer and guitarist has stated multiple times that he is working on songs for a sophomore effort. Now that he seems to have some free time on his hands, let’s hope that that comes to fruition sooner than later.

So, I stand corrected; I told you all that the Ghost B.C. parody song “Hail Santa” was the best X-mas parody of the year. I was wrong!

I just stumbled across this amazing video by Sock Puppet Parody called “Immortal Christmas.” This one really had me busting up. The video is a funny take on the infamous Norwegian black metal band Immortal and their frost-bound homages to the dark lord. Once again, the praises of Satan are replaced by ones for Santa and hilarity ensues. I have to think that Immortal frontman Abbath would approve of this, as he seems to have a very tongue-in-cheek sense of humor about his band and their schtick. Anyway, check it out for yourself here below and let us know what you think.

Immortal Band Photo

Immortal come from (where else?) the hotbed of black metal, Bergen, Norway, and is one of the most iconic and polarizing bands in the genre. They are revered by many as one of the first bands to emerge in the second wave of black metal and reviled by others who see them as “the KISS of black metal,” perhaps due to the fact that the band has proven to be one of the most commercially successful black metal outfits ever and can often be seen playing the main stages of major European festivals.

Love them or hate them, there is no denying that black metal as we know it today might be a very different animal if not for the contributions of Immortal. Here, from their iconic 1995 album Battles In The North are Immortal with the official video for the song “Blashyrkh (Mighty Ravendark).”
