Immortal Announces Collaboration With Beyonce For New Single, Tour Dates

After "Lulu," the Korn and Skrillex combo, and similar collaborative efforts, it seems as though metal and the mainstream are destined to continue colliding. In one of the least expected collaborations, Norwegian black metal outfit Immortal has announced an upcoming single is due out with a guest appearance by none other than musical icon Beyonce.

Band members Abbath and Demonaz reportedly sought out the famous singer/songwriter on their own after an unflattering photo of Beyonce during her Super Bowl performance leaked online.

“When we saw the picture we knew she had a grimness in her struggling to be released, and we will be the vehicle of that kvlt apotheosis," said front man Abbath. "Honestly, it was like our photo shoots and videos from the '90s just staring right back at us. She gets what we are all about."

The new single will be titled "Diabolical Suga Mama in Black," and will follow the band's 2009 full-length "All Shall Fall" (reviewed here). Immortal and Beyonce have already been rehearsing for a string of special shows together, with further details to come.

Sad day for blackmetal.
According to jet magazine, beyonce and jay-z heard the term " black metal" and instantly were inspired to comprise some black persons version of a vegas revue show along the lines of rock of ages, only casting an all black cast.
Obviously no one in there camp googled blackmetal.
We heard they asked kiss to be involved initially but gene simmons doesnt like black people so thats where it ended.

Ok, you guys had me for a few seconds, only because my excitement about reading new Immortal news overrode my common sense. As for Gene Simmons.........he once dated Diana Ross, right?

SORRY SASHA FIERCE, BUT I'VE ALWAYS THOUGHT YOU WERE A WHITNEY HOUSTON/ MARIAH CAREY WANNABE. I'D RATHER LISTEN TO SATANIC SHOUTING FROM THE CRISP BLACK NIGHT THAN OVERDRAMATIC CATERWAULING EMANATING FROM THE GHETTO.

As long as Immortal doesn't let Beyonce sing everything will be fine. Post 5 "takes the cake" when it comes to ignorance. Immortal hardly has, if nothing at all to do with Satanism or even having Satanic lyrics.
