Added DiffLines:

* SincerestFormOfFlattery: They've made no secret of Music/{{Bathory}}'s influence on them, dedicating one song on I's ''Between Two Worlds'' to Quorthon. With ''All Shall Fall'' they take this UpToEleven as several songs sound like they could have been outtakes from ''Blood Fire Death''. This is hardly a bad thing; it's hard to imagine a better tribute to Quorthon's influence over black metal.

* LoudnessWar: This has affected all their releases from ''Blizzard Beasts'' onwards, and ''Battles in the North'' got a remaster that also somewhat falls into this trope. ''At the Heart of Winter'' is probably the worst example of this in their discography, though I's ''Between Two Worlds'' is arguably even worse. Abbath's solo album is also affected, although by modern standards it's actually fairly quiet (it's still moderately clipped, but many listeners will probably not be able to tell). Their early work remains unaffected even in modern issues; ''Pure Holocaust'' in particular stands out as a sterling example of the way black metal still ought to sound.

* EpicRocking: Most of their songs, especially since they shifted their style to Melodic Black/Thrash Metal on ''At the Heart of Winter''.

to:

* EchoingAcoustics: This started to be a major element of their sound with ''Pure Holocaust'' and they haven't toned it down much since.
* EpicRocking: Most of their songs, especially since they shifted their style to Melodic Black/Thrash Metal on ''At the Heart of Winter'', which consisted exclusively of this trope. All of their albums since ''Blizzard Beasts'' have contained at least one example of this, with ''Sons of Northern Darkness'' taking the prize for largest number of epic songs after ''Heart of Winter''.

* UncommonTime: One They like this trope a lot. As an early example, one riff of "Cold Winds of Funeral Dust" has a measure of 6/4 followed by a measure of 7/4.7/4. An exhaustive list would take a long time to compile; they generally use it at least [[OnceAnEpisode once an album]] and often times more than that. It's one of the reasons they have a reputation as one of the most technical and musically complex second-wave acts.

The band split up in 2003 for various personal reasons. Abbath formed the {{Supergroup}} I with various other musicians from the Norwegian black metal scene (including members of such groups as Music/{{Enslaved}} and Music/{{Gorgoroth}}) after Immortal's first disbandment; the group released the album ''Between Two Worlds'' to critical acclaim. The band's style is generally considered to be a fusion of BlackMetal with the style of Music/{{Motorhead}}, also referred to as "black and roll", and has been considered an influence on the later work of other bands, notably Music/{{Satyricon}}. I is currently on hiatus. Immortal reformed in 2007 for a string of live performances; after the reunion, the band decided to reform the band on a permanent basis, releasing the album ''All Shall Fall'' in 2009.

However, internal conflicts between the band members resulting from tumultuous recording sessions for the band's ninth album resulted in a second disbandment in 2015. What exactly occurred during the sessions [[RashomonStyle seems to depend upon whom you believe]], but in the wake of the disbandment, Abbath started a new band [[EgocentricTeamNaming in his name]] (which admittedly is a well known quantity in the world of black metal, so it's a sensible business decision) with bassist [[Music/{{Gorgoroth}} King ov Hell]] and drummer Baard Kolstad. Immortal's ninth album was apparently largely finished before the band's second disbandment, but it's not clear what will become of the material from these sessions.

They reformed in 2007 for a string of live performances; after the reunion, the band decided to reform the band on a permanent basis, although the band has broken up once again due to conflict with the band members and the overall idea to move forward.

In 2015, the band temporarily disbanded again due to internal conflicts between members, with Abbath starting a new band [[EgocentricTeamNaming in his name]] with bassist [[Music/{{Gorgoroth}} King ov Hell]] and drummer Baard Kolstad.

However, on August 14, 2015, Demonaz and Horgh announced that the band will continue without Abbath.

Abbath. Abbath's first, self-titled album was released in January 2016 through Season of Mist; Immortal's ninth album has been announced for release later in the same year through Nuclear Blast. It currently remains to be seen how much of the material on Immortal's upcoming album dates back to the sessions from when Abbath was still in the band, whether his contributions from those sessions will be subjected to an OrwellianRetcon, or indeed whether any of the material from Abbath's solo album is based on any of the material from the earlier sessions.
