Fan-filmed video footage of Norwegian black metallers IMMORTAL performing the song "One By One" at Hellfest on June 19, 2010 in Clisson, France can be viewed below (courtesy of Dave Ingham a.k.a. YouTube user "triptykon").
IMMORTAL will release a concert DVD, "The Seventh Date Of Blashyrkh", this summer via Nuclear Blast. The disc will include professionally filmed video footage of the band's headlining performance at the 2007 edition of the Wacken Open Air festival, which was held August 2-4, 2007 in Wacken, Germany.
In a recent interview with About.com, IMMORTAL's Demonaz stated about the progress of the songwriting sessions for the follow-up to "All Shall Fall", "We already have three songs for the next album. We'll be working on the album this year. And we have material for a lot of other songs, so maybe in August we'll be finished with half the album. But we haven't come so far that I can see the end of the album."
He continued, "I think we'll try to work with the songs and make them classic IMMORTAL songs.
"The next album will be different than 'All Shall Fall'. I think the songs will come off as one package.
"Every album is different for us, but we won't try too many new things. We'll stick to the plan and make the music we like.
"Don't expect something revolutionary. (laughs)"
IMMORTAL "rejected" its nomination in the "Metal" category at this year's Spellemann awards.
The nominees for the largest and oldest Norwegian music awards show, which is often referred to as the country's equivalent to the American Grammy Awards, were announced on January 25 and included nods to IMMORTAL for the band's latest album, "All Shall Fall", as well as to the most recent releases from CODE, ÅRABROT and THE CUMSHOTS, all of whom were also nominated in the "Metal" category.
After receiving the news that they were nominated for a Spellemann award, the members of IMMORTAL issued a brief statement saying, "IMMORTAL says no to Spellemann nomination. IMMORTAL has registered that we are nominated to a Spellemann award for 'All Shall Fall'. We hereby wish to announce that we reject this nomination."
The Spellemann award in the "Metal" category eventually went to THE CUMSHOTS.
