God Seed - Former Gorgoroth Members Choose New Name


Former Gorgoroth members Gaahl and King ov Hell have chosen the new banner of God Seed to represent their art.

Posted on the band's newly created myspace page:

"God Seed was chosen for many reasons; it represents the will to grow, the god within man and nature, and the will to reach one's highest potential. God Seed is also the title of a track from the last album released under the "Gorgoroth" banner and in that respect it symbolizes what is brought from the past into a new beginning and a new future.

The album which has been in the works as a "Gorgoroth" album will now be released as the first God Seed album and should be in-stores in late 2009.

King comments: "The past 18 months has been a struggle on many levels. Therefore I'm very excited about God Seed - even on a personal level. Hopefully this will lead to growth to me personally and for the band as a whole. It's time to use my energy on something that wants to live, rather than to use my energy on something that wants to die and be part of my past!!!"

More details on the upcoming album - line-up etc will be announced shortly."

No, they mean that the album they were working on - which was intended to be a Gorgoroth album - will now be a God Seed album.

I guess the whole thing that happened to Gorgoroth is great...cause to see Pest back on vocals with Infernus is really such a great thing to looking for....and it same here with God Seed...i guess Gahhl and King ov Hell well make something great for the BLACK metal scene

In other news: Former Gorgoroth members Gaahl and King ov Hell will be touring this summer in support of Stryper's latest album, Murder By Pride. Some fans have been very vocal about God Seed touring with the American Heavy Metal band for the vast differences in their viewpoints. When asked about this odd pairing of bands Gaahl simply said "What is more Black Metal than touring with Oz Fox?" Rumors has also circulated that Michael Sweet may be a guest vocalist on the up coming God Seed album if everything works out well.

Odd choice for a name with odder connotations given that "Seed" is also used as a euphemism for sperm.

Strange name if applying its meaning to the legal battle with Infernus: as this band has spawned from another band, Gaahl and King's band might be considered as the seed. And Infernus' Gorgoroth as the god.

Let them do their thing without tainting the name of Gorgoroth anymore.. I'll certainly give it a listen so lets see what they come up with..

I agree. I would personally like to see more bands stick to their native tongue. "God Seed" just sounds unoriginal.

The last couple Gorgoroth albums that King ov Hell wrote sucked ass. I like how King ov Hell is playing this off as some "rebirth" shit when he tried to steal the Gorgoroth name.
