Abbath - Puts Immortal To Rest, Moves On With Solo Band


It seems like the Legal Battles In The North over the Immortal's name/logo have ended without an agreement. The band's frontman Abbath has released a statement regarding the future of Immortal or rather the end. Essentially, Abbath will move on with a new band under his name and the name of Immortal, for the time being, will rest. Abbath will perform at Blastfest next year and already has announced a show in London this September as well.

Here is the full statement: "Immortal's frontman and founding member has been writing and rehearsing fervently, with a deluge of new material ready to be recorded; unable to come to an agreement in order move forward with the other members of the band, he has formed a new line up. Whilst grateful and respectful for the contributions of Demonaz, Horgh and Apollyon, the time is now right for Abbath to present his art to the world and continue to evolve the legacy.

"The next two years will see the release of a new album alongside select live performances - the first of these to be announced is The Forum in London on Friday 18th September. This will be Abbath's first time back on stage in the UK since triumphantly headlining Bloodstock Festival in 2011 alongside W.A.S.P. and Motörhead. Following this, February 2016 will see a return to playing on home soil as the headliner for the prestigious Blastfest in Bergen - on top of a 100% Norwegian line up.

"Abbath is a continued weaving of this artist's creative thread: new songs have been honed, ready to sit alongside classic Immortal material and rarely - if ever - played gems that will be unearthed from an epic catalogue spanning over two decades.

"Using his own name is a natural step for Abbath, having become iconic and synonymous with the band that he co-founded in 1990. That's 25 years of powering face first into the northern wind; a milestone for any band, and rather than exploit it by dragging Immortal's name through the mud, Abbath will instead carry his own on his back. The name of Immortal, for the time being, will rest; the essence, the power, the music - and Abbath - will not."

Such a sad sue, because Abbot needs Demonaz as Slash needs Axel, who will write a lyrics? Abboth has not wrote any single lyrics ... I have double feelings, show goes on, but quality ... we will see

I don't think the big blow is in the lyrical department (damn, he can write about so many things, or not necessarily he). The huge blow is the loss of Apollyon and especially Horgh who were two great musicians.

Nooooooooooo! One of my last remaining original second wave favorites. At least there's still Enslaved, but there isn't enough quality black thrash out there.

At least it's better than having two Immortals or something like Entombed or Queensrÿche did.

I love Immortal but it's been years since they've released something worthy.

Are they still going to take goofy promo photos together, though?

I have been pimping this like crazy though. If you like the same stuff I do, you'll probably like it. Hopefully we'll get the new Absu this year as well.

I agree. And that one album wasn't really that good either.

Only album I have from them is "All Shall Fall" and while I like the album, I won't call it a master of piece. So, sorry folks, but I won't miss the band.

I wouldn't worry about "Immortal" being put on ice. Give it some time and when the rest of the band starts hurting for some cash they will have another reunion.
