Gorgoroth - Biography
After making a pact with the Devil in 1992, Infernus founded Gorgoroth, an early Norwegian black metal band whose contemporaries included Darkthrone, Mayhem, Immortal, Burzum and Emperor. Gorgoroth has released albums on labels such as Nuclear Blast, Century Media, Season of Mist and Malicious Records, and is now signed to Regain Records. Gorgoroth has toured extensively abroad, and the line-up has been subject to several changes - about 25 different musicians have been involved with the band since its inception, with Infernus being the only remaining member of the band's original line-up. After Gorgoroth's controversial gig in Poland in February 2004, massive media attention led to an increase in both notoriety and record sales for the already infamous band. The band also signed a record deal with Regain Records in the aftermath of this incident. Gorgoroth at present consists of Infernus and Tormentor on guitars, Pest on vocals, Tomas Asklund on drums, and Bøddel on bass. The band's latest album, Quantos Possunt ad Satanitatem Trahunt, was released by Regain Records in October 2009.
