      Immortal's second album (1993).

      Immortal are one of the more contentious bands of Norwegian black metal, as praised as they are ridiculed inside and outside the metal community, the latter being largely for their corpse-paint obsession. 'Pure Holocaust' is the band's second album and a defining work of second-wave black metal of the early nineties, even if it's not an album I could comfortably sit through for its entire thirty-odd-minute length.

      The classic duo of Abbath on bass, vocals and drums and Demonaz on guitar makes for an effective combination that remains roughly the same throughout the album, songs mainly being distinguished by the occasional melodic lead guitar melody, especially good in 'A Sign For the Norse Hordes to Ride' before 'The Sun No Longer Rises' lets rip with the album's most memorable riff. The songs are short and to the point, and while I wouldn't go so far as to call the minimalistic sound "epic," it's heavily atmospheric and evocative of harsh, frostbitten landscapes.

      1. Unsilent Storms in the North Abyss
      2. A Sign For the Norse Hordes to Ride
      3. The Sun No Longer Rises
      4. Frozen By Icewinds
      5. Storming Through Red Clouds and Holocaustwinds
      6. Eternal Years on the Path to the Cemetery Gates
      7. As the Eternity Opens
      8. Pure Holocaust
