Guitarist Infernus of the Norwegian black metallers GORGOROTH has posted the following message on the band's MySpace page:
"I am writing to inform you about the fact that there has been taken a decision to split up the band, Infernus on one side, Gaahl [vocals] and King [bass] on the other. We cannot continue working together any longer. What is still not agreed upon is who rightfully get to keep the band's name, as it is both parts will to continue. Since this will be a question of legal affairs, I am afraid this might take time to get sorted out. I am sorry for that."
GORGOROTH recently entered Grieghallen Studios in Norway with producer Pytten (ENSLAVED, TRELLDOM) to begin work on a new live album, "Live in Grieghallen 2007".
As previously reported, GORGOROTH vocalist Gaahl (also of TRELLDOM and GAAHLSKAGG) recently created his official MySpace page where fans are welcome to keep track of his various projects.
GORGOROTH's video for the song "Carving a Giant" has been posted online at this location. The track comes off GORGOROTH's latest CD, "Ad Majorem Sathanas Gloriam", which was released last year via Sweden's Regain Records.
