Gorgoroth - Infernus Wins Trademark Case


The ongoing battle Infernus has been pursuing against Gaahl & King Ov Hell regarding trademark rights of the name "Gorgoroth" appear to have come to an end. A message posted on Infernus' myspace website reads as follows:

"Oslo City District Court has today delivered a verdict on the main question in the Gorgoroth trademark case, which took place at the end of January 2009. The court has decided that King ov Hell's trademark registration # 243365 of the band name Gorgoroth is NOT valid and shall therefore be deleted. The court states that King ov Hell and Gaahl excluded themselves from the band Gorgoroth when they tried to fire Infernus in October 2007. The court further states that Infernus cannot be excluded from Gorgoroth, unless he himself decides to quit. Infernus is very pleased, but not surprised, by this verdict. The remaining issues concerning financial matters and such are yet to be decided upon."

The Infernus Gorgoroth line-up is:

Infernus - guitar, bass, drums, vocals
Pest - vocals
Tormentor - guitar
Frank Watkins - bass
Tomas Asklund - drums

Ppfftt...
Half you punks donnae even know who Infernus is.

Yeah, Gorgoroth are soooo underground, and we all just listen to Metallica and Slipknot! I mean, it's not like I can walk over to the CD store in the old person mall near my house and pick up half their albums on any given day.... .

Why have you hidden this band from us for so long, oh mighty one? And what other great unknown bands are you hiding from us? Dimmu Borgir?


Dick.
All the comment's that existed before mine deserved a spanking, the feeling of pure shock that overcame me when I saw someone who was actually rooting for Ghaal is something you may never understand...
That of course wasn't the only thing/one that bothered me...
It's becoming more and more obvious to me how ill suited I'm am for this site with every post I read.

I do however have something to promote though, and I plan on making every one of my 100 posts (or whatever it is) relevant enough to avoid piggy-backing/troll status.
Being remembered as a simpleton wouldn't do much for my cause and it may inspire people to become dis-interested when I finally do reveal my exploits of Havy Matal grandeur...

wtf?? i don't know anything about laws or lawyers or anything, but how can a court decide what a band does with their members? anyway, i didn't know that this was going on, but imo it sucks that this kinda shit happens within a band

Great news for me. Infernus always represented the best part of Gorgoroth for me. He was there from the begining to the end and Gaahl and King have no right to claim anything. Always been a huge Infernus fan (check my avatar for proof lol). Hopefully this will result in bringing back everything that was once great about Gorgorth.

Haha, yeah. In our regular cd store I have only seen cd's by three different metal bands: Metallica, Volbeat and Gorgoroth. And I'm seriously not kidding on that one.

I think it is becoming more obvious to us just how ill-suited you seem for life. How old are you? 13? You have such an attitude problem. Insulting good members like this will only get you banned, and then you won't be able to promote your band. No one likes to see hostility in otherwise friendly forums so please try and keep a good temperament.

Also, there's talk in this thread about Varg Vikernes being released. Can someone please give me a link supporting that claim?

There's this, but they don't cite any sources - I have no idea where they get that news from.

A good day indeed, I don't mind Gaahl at all but will be good to hear Pest on vocals! And can't go wrong with Tomas Asklund.

Very just.

The whole affair over trademark was laughable as hell. Infernus started Gorgoroth. He's the only original member of it left in it. It's his damn band. End of story!
Good to see that judicial folks in Norway have their heads on straight and are sensible.

Pest on vocals? Obituary dude on bass? Gorgoroth are fucking back!!!

Better than ever before. Now we can draw a direct line between their beginnings and this consistent resurrection.

They actually do cite their source. It's the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet that brought the news. I've just read the article (it's the one I linked to) and it says pretty much what Blabbermouth writes.

Don't kid yourself, seeing all this praise for shitfake cockgaggery bands would make ANY fan of the real stuff have an "attitude" problem.
And no, not 13, and it's not a band I'm promoting.

I didn't directly insult anybody in my post either...
