After triumphant shows in LA & NYC (BB Kings) in 2007, Black Metal pioneers Immortal are returning to our shores. Norwegian black metal comes to NYC just in time for... spring. And Easter. March 30th, to be exact. The Blackened Music Series hosts the show at Brooklyn Masonic Temple and tickets are now on sale in two levels, regular and VIP, which includes a meet & greet pre-show, laminate, a poster, and many other goodies. The show is part of short tour dubbed "Blashyrkh in North America" according to the foursome:

"North American hordes, we are coming your way! After the fantastic experiences we had in New York and Los Angeles in 2007, we are returning next year, and this time we will make sure we visit our Canadian hordes on the East coast as well! We will see you during Easter 2010, which will be a dark and cold one!"
Immortal went back to the studio earlier this year and returned with All Shall Fall, their first rager since Sons of Northern Darkness in 2002. The reception for the record has been positive overall (including mine) and it did well on the Decibel top 40. Pick up a copy of that LP via the band/CM distro.

The only other US show is again in LA. A few Immortal videos with all tour dates, below...

Immortal at brooklyn Masonic is going to be rad. Serious rippers. Blackened Music putting together some really good shows.
Dude just has some winter weight.

that dude is actually fat because he sits at home with his hand down his pants watching football games eating chicken wings.

Black Metal is truly the lamest genre known to man, I don't understand how people fall for such a rediculous gimmick.

Perhaps they have some talent, but old men dressing in black with makeup is kinda gay in both the homo & nonhomo way.

Hey, black non-belivers...just turn up your shitty Pitchfork approved drivel and ignore us. We could give two shits about your approval.

But two US Dates? Big bummer. How tough would it be to squeeze in a few more?

Does anyone know who's opening for them?

I love how these non-metal pussies comment on music they neither listen to nor understand. If you're not a Metalhead don't fucking waste your time commenting, we are use to having the boring majority putting down our music, and thing most of you don't get is, we don't give a fuck what you think of it or us. This fucking album RULES!

All Shall Fall Is fuckin METAL!
you guys should come to houston Texas that would be fuckin killer
Keep up the good work Immortal!
and BTW all you little non metal pussies why don't you just go slit your wrist or go suck a dick or watever the hell it is you faggots do. your wasting our time

Thanks for the copy of Sons of Northern Darkness. I am really happy to receive the copy. Its really amazing to know that Immortal returning to North America. I am planning to see you in Brooklyn. I am sure it will be a great time with your band and love your music very much. The videos are wonderful and presentation is mind blowing.

The very famous Immortals having triumphed in LA and NYC are coming with a glorious return. The Norwegian Black Metal is coming on March 30th. The Blackened Music Series are hosting the show on Brooklyn Masonic Temple and tickets are now on sale in two levels. They are regular and VIP. It includes a meet & greet pre-show, laminate, a poster, and many other goodies. They went to the studio earlier this year and came back with All Shall Fall their first rager since Sons of Northern Darkness in 2002. It had an overall good reception.

The whole Snow LP is pretty solid. And these guys easily sold out 3 NYC shows already.

^^^Maybe these are scalpers upset about the T5 addition?

Black Metal is not about playing dress up or tour dates. It's the ultimate expression of metal as art: beauty in darkness, heroism in the face of death. This was the original spirit of the originators (including Immortal) circa 1992. The apparel etc. is a natural extension of this, unlike POSERS and HIPSTERS (Cradle of Filth) who dress up their image and sound as black metal, without understanding the content.
