Played at Graspop Metal Meeting




Abbath is a relatively new arrival on the black metal scene but any black metal fan will tell you that Abbath is the frontman of recently disbanded Norwegian black metal legends Immortal. Although disbanded may not be the right word: apparently Abbath’s former brothers in arms Demonaz and Horgh will carry on the Immortal name but there are still some pending legal issues. Whatever the outcome, Abbath will not be a part of the new line-up. Instead he recruited bassist King (ex-God Seed, ex-Gorgoroth) and masked drummer Creature to form Abbath. They played their first show last year and are currently working on a debut album of razor-sharp, spine-chilling black metal tracks played at breakneck speed. Just the way we like it.
