The Top Ten

1 One by One

It's got this laugh in it. It's a laugh that...oh man, it's just incredible. This song is grey and thy laugh gives me chills every time - MetalFoREVer1228

This is a killer track with great growling, snarled vocals that got me into extreme metal.

Love the killing riffs and the blast drum beats!

Heaviest black metal song ever - Caleb9000

Superb song! The title track from their latest album.
Just listen to it for a perfect mindblow and some very special Black metal essence!

This song is simply epic

Stronger than the Gods we fought, triumphant for the Dark Prophecies

The best song from Immortal - NikoX

The Kashmir of Immortal. The similarities are endless. Besides, ask Abbath and he'll tell you

"Crowned upon our gilded thrones" immortal are the kings of black metal. <~ note the period

My personnal favorite nothing else to say

4 Withstand the Fall of Time

I was really expecting this to be higher on this list. Sure there are many songs that are equally good or even better but this one has such an epic title.

Most epic black metal song ever written. Period.

This song made me love black metal. The riff is epic, the voice fits perfect for the story that it tells and the recording is very clean.

Best black metal song!

5 The Sun No Longer Rises

The riffing in this song is so cold your ears might suffer from gangrene after you've listened to it enough.
"Pure Holocaust" is Immortal at their finest moment.

This song has one of the coldest black metal riffs

Name a better song... I'll wait.

6 Solarfall

Very clean song, with ambience and kick ass speed riffs

This is the best black metal song, nothing more must be said

Not only the best of Immortal, but also the best of black metal in my opinion

7 Blashyrkh (Mighty Ravendark)

I dare to say, This IS the best song, it picks up where its predecessor Pure Holocaust left off, with extreme speed and lowfi production and lyrics about coldness and wintery landscapes. Like Pure Holocaust, Battles in the North is also one of the classic albums in black metal, or should I say RAW black metal! AND this one is the best of it!

One of the scariest metal songs ever recorded. It's just beautiful - Shake_n_Bake13

Was the best live set

This should ' ve been at least #2 - Ananya

8 At the Heart of Winter

The riffs in this song are just simply amazing! The bass really adds to the riffs and gives the song an amazing atmosphere as well as the vocals.

My favorite Immortal song! M/

When I first heard this song I felt chills all over me. That's how you distinguish a true Masterpiece.

The title song from their best album... And the first ever Immortal song I heard.
The dark atmosphere in this song will take you to another world beyond mortality.

Orgasmatic riffs, vocal.. Everything. A Masterpiece

9 Beyond the North Waves

This song is so amazing. Not the heaviest but it has such an evil cold feeling. Love it!

This song creates the atomosphere you can completely connect with. The way it starts and ends, vocals, lyrics, guitars, bass, drums, so on and so fore, its just unspeakable.

This song is very underrated. Some fans do not respect this track because it's not agressive like immortal normally is, but damn this song sounds so dark and cold. - Metalmaniakkk

10 Sons of Northern Darkness


The Newcomers

? As the Eternity Opens

The Contenders

11 The Call of the Wintermoon

Its primitive, awkward and beautiful. Its long but worth waiting for. Its ground breaking, it sounds rubbish and yet its transcendent and difficult to listen to. It's been a gateway drug into death/black metal. I can hear the call... Of the wintermoon.

Yes this isn't number 1 because people voting this list are more interested in ambient style, but I'm sure if true Norwegian black metal fans were here this could've peaked the list.
Don't just forget those violent infernal guitar riffs and blast beats that defines black metal.

One of the greatest music videos I have ever seen. Watch it for a good laugh. Band and song are great!

12 The Rise of Darkness

Best song I’ve ever heard.

13 Against the Tide (In the Arctic World)

I can't believe I had to add this, this is probably my favorite Immortal song. - Metalmaniakkk

14 A Perfect Vision of the Rising Northland
15 Battles in the North
16 Unearthly Kingdom

This song is just great! I love it! One of the best Black Metal songs out there. The rhythm guitar, drums, vocal, everything seems so perfect and flawless.

17 In My Kingdom Cold

Metallica - Phantom Lord / Megadeth - This was my Life

It defines "immortal".very much underrated.

18 Nebular Ravens Winter
19 Pure Holocaust

Blackened death riffs from hell! Better than The Sun No Longer Rises! Should be number 1. - joshapkin

20 Storming Through Red Clouds and Holocaust Winds
21 Tragedies Blows at Horizon

I agree "Withstand the Fall of Time" is the best song from At the Heart of Winter. This song comes next, and is much better than the underwhelming and overrated Solarfall, which is shockingly higher on this list. - Vip3r

22 Unholy Forces of Evil
23 A Sign for the Norse Hordes to Ride
24 Frozen by Icewinds
25 Antarctica
26 Damned In Black

Metal at it's finest

27 The Darkness That Embraces Me

Total evilness, awesome vocals, and total thrashing riffage

28 Within the Dark Mind


29 Where Dark and Light Don't Differ
30 Mountains of Might

Awesome intro and riff!

Great song that shows the transition between the Demonaz period with more fast songs, and Abbath's with more melodic songs.

31 Mighty Ravendark
32 Unsilent Storms In the North Abyss

My first favorite immortal song - InsanityJoe

33 Year of Silent Sorrow
34 Demonium
35 Norden on Fire
36 Arctic Swarm

Heavy song with good music and lyrics.

37 Grim and Frostbitten Kingdoms
38 Blacker Than Darkness

A perfect black metal classic

39 Cryptic Winterstorms
40 Cursed Realms of the Winterdemons
41 Gates to Blashyrkh

Such a great song, love the new album - InsanityJoe

42 Suns that Sank Below

Dude, just hear it.
