According to a letter sent via ABBATH, vocalist/guitarist for Norwegian black metal legends IMMORTAL to the NORWEGIAN INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY OFFICE , DEMONAZ and HORGH left the band earlier this year as they failed to pay rent on the bands rehearsal studio, usually split between the three band members. ABBATH was under the impression, due to band turmoil, DEMONAZ and HORGH wanted to take a longer break from the band as ABBATH payed for the rehearsal space.
ABBATH states IMMORTAL are contractually obligated for another studio release for NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS as the new material is completed with other musicians.
IMMORTAL front man ABBATH has claimed rights over the bands name via EIKOMO COMPOSITIONS. However, the application has been stopped by lyricist/guitarist DEMONAZ and drummer HORGH whom want the IMMORTAL trademark to be shared by all three members as the matter will stand before civil court (NORWEGIAN INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY COURT) JANUARY OR FEBRUARY 2015.
DEMONAZ has stated to DAGBLADET.NO. that "he is familiar with the contents of ABBATH's letter, "I've read it, and our lawyer read it. We will come back with a feed back letter it contains incorrect information".
IMMORTAL won the trade mark lawsuit over the bands name as ABBATH has split with the band for a solo career.
IMMORTAL unleashed "All Shall Fall" 9/25/2009 via NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS.
ITP V.09 REVIEW: IMMORTAL: "All Shall Fall":
IMMORTAL will start recording their ninth album in January 2017.
"The songs have been ready for some time, but we wanted to record it at the right place and time. We will once again work with Peter Tägtgren at Abyss Studio who produced our four last albums. The band will enter the studio during wintertime to have the right atmosphere.
The tracks that will appear on the album are: 'Northern Chaos Gods', 'Into Battle Ride', 'Gates To Blashyrkh', 'Blacker Of Worlds', 'Where Mountains Rise', 'Grim And Dark', 'Called To Ice', and 'Ravendark'.
Blashyrkh, December 2016
