24 Years Ago: IMMORTAL release their self-titled EP (Unholy Forces of Evil)

We truly have the best scene… yes, especially the bands into “the black circle”. We have a war against the trend people… And of course we are ready to fight. We are vikings, but remember vikings were not nice men… They butchered people daily… So will we do…
– Immortal interview, Daemonium Aeturnus #2 1992

IMMORTAL’s transition from the strictly death metal demo in July 1991 to Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism, recorded only nine months later, was dramatic! Somewhere between those two extremes they recorded the Immortal EP, released on this day in 1991 by Listable Records. An intro and two tracks, both re-recorded for the first album.

Drink of the moon and spit on the winds of life… into darkness ride for the darkness of my spirit… for Satan my black soul… tragedies blows at horizon and I have to leave for another world… where the sun freezes to dust…
