Finland's Get In The Pit TV conducted an interview with former GORGOROTH and current GOD SEED frontman Gaahl (real name: Kristian Espedal) at this year's Inferno festival, which was held April 8-11, 2009 in Oslo, Norway. The chat can be seen in several parts at www.getinthepit.fi. (Note: The Gaahl interview begins around the six-minute mark.)
Video footage of GOD SEED performing the song "Teeth Grinding" on July 25, 2008 at the Hortensfestivalen in Horten, Norway can be viewed below (clip shot by Harald Sleetrød). This track is a preview of footage that will be used on the forthcoming GOD SEED DVD, which is currently in the works.
GOD SEED's Gaahl and King (bass) entered the studio on August 25, 2008 in the their hometown of Bergen, Norway to begin recording eight new tracks composed by the bassist for an as-yet-untitled new album, due later in the year via Indie Recordings. Along with Gaahl, King and Frost (SATYRICON) on drums, the band's full recording lineup includes Teloch (guitar) and Ice Dale (guitar). ENSLAVED's Herbrand Larsen once again produced the group in the studio.
In a recent interview with the Imhotep webzine, King stated about the band's name, "GOD SEED represent a more spiritual side to us than what GORGOROTH would. 'God Seed' is also the title of a track from our last album released under the 'GORGOROTH' banner and in that respect it symbolizes what is brought from the past. GOD SEED represents the will to grow; the will to be the super man so to speak. I think it's a suitable name for what we will represent in the future. I am also aware of the fact that we use the word God in the name. It will challenge the weak minded in the respect that we in the past used the word Satan a lot, but it's all about the same thing. The God within man and the God within nature. I never believed in a Christian force named Satan. I believe in the God within man."
