Immortal Throne of Blashyrkh: Russian Tribute to Norwegian Black Metal band Immortal


Interview with Abbath from "Rock Hard" magazine (2006)

I and Immortal are two different stories, to make that clear, once and for all", it [Abbath's voice] croaks out of the phone. "At present I'm rehearsing nearly daily with Armagedda, and Demonaz has already written lyrics for seven songs. We will most probably begin with the recording for the I debut this year".

The fire seems to be burning anew.

"More than that. I am composing hard and intensive, as I didn't in the later years. The time out has done me good, my head is clear, my liver is working perfectly again; I'm feeling totally recovered and ready for attack".

Then that's the end of the premature retirement?

"I think of it like Ozzy. His tour in 1995 was called "Retirement Sucks". A good motto, I think".

So then an Immortal reunion is no longer out of the question?



"I didn't really want to say it, but I don't give a shit. We will come back, stronger than ever. I've met with Horgh for the first time in over a year. He's built his new house here, right around the corner. In the next few days we will begin to rehearse our old "Blizzard Beasts" classics. I'm already really hot on the idea".

And you're certain we should print that? Then there's no way back...

"I'm a little out of practice, this being my first interview in two years. But somehow feeling good, that it's out now. Iím mostly glad for our fans".

The petty cash rattling should be good again also.

"Don't say that! To clear that up: we're not coming back for the money. If we had been going for the cash, we wouldn't have allowed Immortal to split".

Then only the date is missing.

"Immortal are timeless frost. One year more or less doesn't make a difference. We have all the time in the world".
