Hmmm... so which one's gonna start playing death metal, and which one's gonna start playing folk music?

More guitar, less Ultimate-Guitar.

They had a myspace? Haha. Grim.

It'd be good if Gaahl has his own one.

Official statement:

copy of bulletin sent out 21st of october 2007:

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 and king on the other. we can not continue working together any longer. what is still not agreed upon is who rightfully get to keep the bands 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.

infernus, 21.10.2007


That's bad news, I was going to see these guys with Shining November 10th. Ah well, Infernus is probably going to get the name and both Gaahl and King have enough side projects to keep themselves busy.

I want to be sad because Gorgoroth is my favorite band, but the Gaahl Journal stuff is too fucking funny.

22.10.2007 - Gorgoroth Part Ways, European Tour Goes as planned
Gaahl, King and Infernus have decided to part ways.
Gorgoroth have existed as a three-piece for the past several years but have ceased from this moment on in this incarnation.

Vocalist Gaahl (lyrics) and King (bassist/composer) will continue the scheduled European tour in November under the name Gorgoroth with a replacement for Infernus.
King and Gaahl will continue to work together musically, performing their art live and recording in the future. This decision was reached by Gaahl and King as they have been the driving force behind Gorgoroth's music for the past 8 years.

Infernus has stated he will take King and Gaahl to court over future use of the name Gorgoroth.

Guess I'm going to see Gorgoroth after all.

anyway, i'm sure you are aware of the soap opera that has emerged out of this
for all of you who believe gorgoroth is infernus band join groups.myspace.com/theallianceofinfernus.

if gaahl and king continue with the rights to the name
gorgoroth will only continue to produce mediochre and in-ventice black metal.
however, hopefully if infernus gets the name, we will start to see more authentic black metal, such as gorgoroths earlier work all of which infernus wrote.

and he came up with the idea of using gorgoroth as the band name and is the only original member left anyway?
why shouldn't he still hve the name.

WHY?! MY favourite BM band...

Yeah, Infernus should have the name. And maybe he could start a new Gorgoroth?

I absolutely fucking loved Ad Majorem Sathanas Gloriam. I probably prefer it to what I've heard of their older stuff - at least it's a bit different, and not just the same old black metal every Norwegian band was playing in the early 90s.

Yeah, it's a great album. But still, most of us like their older stuff better.

You're thinking of this exact band.

This thread is like half a year old.

I thought they had been split up for ages now, they're just arguing over who gets to keep the band name...unless this thread is really old.
#38
I got a little panicked when I first saw this thread today,
but then I noticed the post date of it, things still haven't
been resolved, but at least whoever gets the name is
actually going to use it, so Grogoroth will still be around.
#39
I think Infernus lost the right to the name, but he's appealing and has the label behind him.

Yep. GIVE INFERNUS THE NAME! IF he doesn't win this case then it's really weird. He IS Gorgoroth. He was the only original member and they kicked him out and want the name...
