[[caption-width:345:Hearting mountains since the dawn of time.]]

One of the more famous BlackMetal bands, possibly the most famous behind {{Mayhem}} and the ones responsible for the genre's stereotypical image.

Immortal was formed by Abbath and Demonaz Doom Occulta after their previous band, Amputation, didn't take off. The band's beginnings can also be traced back to the death metal band Old Funeral, of which both Abbath and Demonaz were members.

Their earlier releases were in a more traditional black metal style, but as of the acclaimed ''At the Heart of Winter'', they have fused black metal with elements of German ThrashMetal. Euronymous of {{Mayhem}} is credited for getting Abbath into black metal and as a result, Abbath getting the infamous [[{{Burzum}} Varg Vikernes]] into black metal as well; however, despite these associations, Immortal's primary members have never been involved in the more controversial activities of some of their contemporaries in black metal, and their lyrics have also never involved the religious or political ideologies often associated with the scene.

The band split up in 2003 for various personal reasons. They reformed in 2007 for a string of live performances; after the reunion, the band decided to reform the band on a permanent basis.

Current lineup:
* Abbath Doom Occulta (Olve Eikemo) - vocals, bass guitar, guitar, keyboards, drums (1989–2003, 2006–present)
* Demonaz Doom Occulta (Harald Nævdal) - guitar (up to 1997), lyrics (switched to lyricist and band manager after his injury) (1989–2003, 2006–present)
* Horgh (Reidar Horghagen) - drums (1996–2003, 2006–present)
* Apollyon (Ole Jørgen Moe) - bass guitar (2006–present)

Previous members:
* Iscariah (Stian Smørholm) - bass guitar (1999–2002)
* Saroth (Yngve Liljebäck) - bass guitar (live, 2002–2003)
* Ares - bass guitar (live, 1998; lead singer of Aeternus)
* [[{{Mayhem}} Hellhammer]] (Jan Axel Blomberg) - drums (live, 1995)
* Grim (Erik Brødreskift) - drums (live, 1993–1994) (deceased)
* Kolgrim - drums (demo, 1992)
* Jörn Tonsberg - guitar (demo, 1989–1991)
* Armagedda - drums (1990–1992)

Studio albums:
* ''Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism'' (1992)
* ''Pure Holocaust'' (1993)
* ''Battles in the North'' (1995)
* ''Blizzard Beasts'' (1997)
* ''At the Heart of Winter'' (1999)
* ''Damned in Black'' (2000)
* ''Sons of Northern Darkness'' (2002)
* ''All Shall Fall'' (2009)

----
Tropes that apply to Immortal:

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation - Some have speculated that the band is actually a massive StealthParody of the black metal genre.
* BlackMetal
* CoverVersion - They covered "From the Dark Past" on the {{Mayhem}} tribute album ''Originators of the Northern Darkness''.
* CrowningMomentOfFunny - The video for "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VBdAY8eA9w The Call of the Wintermoon]]", which is also responsible for black metal's reputation among some as a "silly genre taken too seriously".
** As with many aspects of the band, though, "The Call of the Wintermoon" has been interpreted as a StealthParody of stupid black metal videos (generally featuring men in corpse paint running around a forest), of which there are many. It's just, "The Call of the Wintermoon" is the most [[strike:in]]famous.
* EpicRocking - Most of their songs.
* FaceOfTheBand - Abbath.
* HeavyMithril - Instead of focusing on Satanism like their peers, Immortal's lyrics focus on an imaginary world called Blashyrkh, plagued by war and suffering and ruled over by the Mighty Ravendark.
* MemeticMutation - [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/immortal The band itself.]]
* {{Narm}} - Take your pick. [[http://i187.photobucket.com/albums/x18/atsoyat/BlizzardBeasts.jpg Their]] [[http://www.immortal.nu/img/covers/big/2000_damned_in_black.jpg album]] [[http://images.uulyrics.com/cover/i/immortal/album-sons-of-northern-darkness.jpg art]], their lyrics ("These mountains which I heart"), their videos...
** Alternatively, NarmCharm.
* SeriousBusiness - Notably averted, at least for the band. Black metal bands tend to take themselves very seriously; Immortal do not.
* StageNames - Well, [[CaptainObvious yeah]].
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks - One of the reactions to their change to "blackened thrash" on ''At the Heart of Winter''; surprisingly, the reaction to the change is far less extreme than what happened with other metal bands that changed their style. Some of the initial reactions to ''All Shall Fall'' also had this attitude to them.
* YourMileageMayVary - Totally awesome? Totally awesome despite the {{Narm}}? Too {{Narm}}ful to enjoy? Take your pick.
