[Immortal's] set was varied and opened to the tune of the title track off of their most recently released disc All Shall Fall and it was superb... The band continued playing most of their post-At The Heart Of Winter material which included plenty of material off of Sons of Northern Darkness, Damned In Black, and All Shall Fall.... Immortal simply blew me away with a live rendition of... 'Solarfall' ...with all of its excellent riffs and beautiful interludes. The powerful 'Grim and Frostbitten Kingdoms' reflected the 33 degree weather outside along with 35 mph winds that Immortal had clearly setup for the entire city to endure.The incredible pairing of Immortal and now-trio Absu teamed up for a short stint of East Coast dates including Gramercy Theatre on Saturday (2/19). Pictures from NYC show are in this post. The trek concludes on 2/26 in San Antonio.
