Haha, I overlooked that in Respawned's post. At The Heart of Winter I hear more praise for than every other Immortal album combined.

It's not that absurd of a statement. I know different groups of people. Ones that won't touch anything after Blizzard Beasts. Ones that love most of their stuff, but At the Heart of Winter is their favorite (my group). Then there are those crazy ones that hate their older stuff, but can't get enough of Sons of Northern Darkness. In my experience, all of these groups are quite significant.

Most people I talk to about Immortal care more about the first three records than anything else they've done. I disagree and think At the Heart of Winter is their best record. We're all entitled to our opinions though (except for C.ghost).

Speaking of crazy opinions on Immortal, am I the only one that loves Blizzard Beasts? It's easily my second favorite album from them.

I have never heard that opinion ever. At the Heart of Winter is widely considered to be their best album.

For example, check out Metal-Archives: http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Immortal/75

Well one can only assume the kind of people Respond actually talks to.

Once again, I think you guys live in a bubble with reference to this. There are large groups of people that swear that either Pure Holocaust or Sons of Northern Darkness is their best. Looking at Metal-archives doesn't prove everything, but these other two albums have nearly the same average rating as AtHoW (these three being the highest), and also the most number of reviews (ignoring the newest one).

Side note: I'm surprised at how high Blizzard Beasts is. I thought everyone hated that one besides me.

If you go to rate your music they share the same opinion, At the Heart of Winter is the best. Tongue

So, since we can't shut about this album, I thought I would share that a friend of mine pointed out to me yesterday that the riff from Whitesnake - Love Ain't No Stranger is the same riff from the title track of At the Heart of Winter:

Jeff, the uploader has not made this video available in my country Sad Here's one that should work for North American residers -





Haha, you're right! They do sound pretty similar.

Just like Immortal's "Solarfall" is the same riff from Iron Maiden's "Where Eagles Dare", plus they do a couple other riffs too that I can't remember off the top of my head.

Thanks, Kurt. How odd, because that video does work for US people, but I guess you have to search for it and not use my link.

When my friend, from the US, linked me to the same video it gave me the same "can't view in your country". However, when I searched for it on my own through youtube, it played just fine for me.
