All Shall Fall is the eighth studio album by Norwegian black metal band Immortal. The album was released in Europe on 25 September 2009 and in the US on 6 October 2009. It is the only album to feature bassist Apollyon and the last to feature vocalist/guitarist Abbath Doom Occulta.

Recording and production[edit]

In January 2008, Immortal started rehearsing and writing new material for the album.[7] After spending much time performing live that year, the band entered both Grieghallen and Abyss studios in April 2009 to start recording the album.[8] A month later the band already completed recording the album and announced the album's title.[9] In June, Terrorizer was given the opportunity to listen to the just-recorded album and posted an exclusive track-by-track breakdown.[10]
