* BaseBreaker: The band reuniting, but Abbath not returning has been this for fans, especially considering Abbath is the FaceOfTheBand. On the other hand, Demonaz was the primary songwriter/lyricist of the band, even after he stopped playing guitar, and Abbath hired King Ov Hell for his solo band, who's infamous for a similar trademark dispute within Music/{{Gorgoroth}}. The [[RashomonStyle differing accounts]] regarding what happened during the recording sessions for the band's ninth album prior to their second breakup hasn't helped with this either.

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeMusic: Basically, all of it. Even the band's "lesser" albums would still be highlights in most other bands' discographies. The most loved albums among fans tend to be ''At the Heart of Winter'', ''Pure Holocaust'', and ''Sons of Northern Darkness'' in roughly that order (some fans may swap the latter two). Listeners who enjoy the band's sound should not overlook the work of side project I, either.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation - Some have speculated that the band is actually a massive StealthParody of the black metal genre.

* 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".
* FaceOfTheBand - Abbath.
* {{Narm}}/{{NarmCharm}} - Take your pick.

* MemeticMutation - [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/immortal The band itself.]]
* 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.

** 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.
