Additional notes
Euronymous of Mayhem is credited for getting Abbath Doom Occulta into black metal and as a result, Abbath getting Varg Vikernes (Burzum) into black metal as well. Despite these associations, Immortal's primary members have never been involved in the more controversial activities of some of their contemporaries in the second wave of black metal. Their lyrics have also never involved the religious or political ideologies often associated with the scene to any great extent, instead being concerned with darkness and evil in a fantasy setting.

Co-founder Demonaz Doom Occulta left the band in 1997 due to severe tendinitis in his arms that prevented him from playing the guitar. He has continued to write lyrics and has occasionally served as manager for Immortal since.

In 2003 Abbath, Demonaz, and Horgh decided to stop working with Immortal due to personal reasons. Abbath started playing in a Motörhead cover band called Bömbers, together with Tore Bratseth (Old Funeral, Desekrator) and Pez, and also started the more traditional metal band I.

Immortal reformed in June 2006 and later released one more album All Shall Fall but in March 2015 the band split-up once again due to disagreement between the members. Abbath went on to record a new album under his own name.

The band was reactivated again in August 2015, and features a lineup of Demonaz and Horgh. The justification for this was that because Abbath failed to secure the trademark to the band's name and was also pursuing his new solo project, Demonaz was free to use the Immortal moniker.
