Norwegian black metallers Gorgoroth have posted the following update on their official site:

''After a two-year absence from the live arena, Gorgoroth will once again perform their Satanic rituals on stage on August 29, 2009. Gorgoroth will then headline the last night of the 10th anniversary Hole in the Sky Metal Festival in Bergen, Norway, with none other than US doom legends Pentagram as co-headliners! More info on the festival can be found at www.holeinthesky.no. This exclusive Gorgoroth concert will be held in tribute of the band's former drummer Erik "Grim" Brødreskift (1966-1999). The setlist will include classic songs from the legendary "Pentagram" album - not played live for 12 years - and perhaps also brand new material from the upcoming album, "Quantos Possunt ad Satanitatem Trahunt". If and when any other Gorgoroth live appearances this summer are confirmed, they will be made public here on the official website.''

''The recording of Gorgoroth's new studio album "Quantos Possunt ad Satanitatem Trahunt" is progressing according to schedule, with a tentative October 2009 release date. The album will be released by Regain Records.''

Looks like they're denying everything that's happened under the name Gorgoroth in the past years At least I remember seeing a band called like that on stage no 10 months ago

I don't think so...I don't think they meant they would exclusively play songs from Pentagram. Besides, King wrote every riff on Ad Majorem. Their new release could be the album of the year if it lives up to the hype.

Of course not they wouldn't just play songs from Pentagram, but they very well should not play songs from Ad Majorem. That would be very hypocritical of Infernus, at least in my humble opinion.

Think about it, that was another band, that was the side with King and Ghaal, who now have lost the rights to be named Gorgoroth, this is the Infernus side now named Gorgoroth, therefor they haven't played 10 months ago

Still funny. I can't remember anything like that with any other band I know. And the way they insist on being the Gorgoroth now is a funny thing. From the commercial point of view, what you say is right of course, but many bands undergo huge lineup changes during their years, even complete all-member replacements but none have denied the own existence just because other people led the project. I have to admit that I don't know Gorgoroth much (musically) and for me it would have made no difference if Infernus' crew were on stage last year. The songs would have been the same and that is what defines a band.

But that's often over time, not every member at once. But I see what you mean

Gorgoroth will never have an album that will be the album od year. Seriously, i like em but they aint good enough bring up such shit

With all the crap surrounding this band I'll be surprised if they sell 10 tickets. More music and less politics would go a long way toward this band actually producing something worthwhile.

Hell yeah..hope that Gorgoroth will be in Belgrade.....

REALLY looking forward to the new album and to hear what Infernus has got since King ov Hell was the primary song writer on the last couple records (which consequently sucked).
