I, the new band featuring former IMMORTAL frontman Abbath (real name: Olve Eikemo), original IMMORTAL drummer Armagedda, ENSLAVED guitarist Arve Isdal and GORGOROTH bassist King ov Hell, has completed work on its debut album, "Between Two Worlds", due this fall through Nuclear Blast Records. The CD was recorded at Bergen's Lydriket Studio with Geir Luedy, and was mixed by PAIN/HYPOCRISY mastermind Peter Tägtgren. "Between Two Worlds" — which will feature lyrics written primarily by former IMMORTAL guitarist Demonaz (real name: Harald Nævdal) — is scheduled to be mastered in early August.
I will make its live debut at Bergen's Hole In The Sky festival on August 26.
As previously reported, IMMORTAL will reunite for several exclusive shows next year, including the Wacken Open Air festival, which is scheduled to take place August 2-4, 2007 in Wacken, Germany.
In a recent interview with Germany's Rock Hard magazine, Abbath said of the band's reunion plans, "We will come back, stronger than ever. I [recently] met with Horgh [ex-IMMORTAL drummer, curently in HYPOCRISY] for the first time in over a year. He's built his new house here [in Norway], right around the corner. In the next few days we will begin to rehearse our old 'Blizzard Beasts'  classics. I'm already really [excited about] the idea."
