Fan-filmed video footage of the Gaahl-fronted version of the Norwegian black metal band GORGOROTH performing the song "Prosperity and Beauty" last night (Saturday, November 29) at the Asylum in Birmingham, England can be viewed below (clip uploaded by Dave Ingham a.k.a. YouTube user "triptykon").
GORGOROTH entered the studio on August 25 in the band's hometown of Bergen, Norway to begin recording eight new tracks composed by bassist King ov Hell for an as-yet-untitled new album. Along with Gaahl, King and Frost (SATYRICON) on drums, the full recording lineup includes Teloch (guitar) and Ice Dale (guitar). ENSLAVED's Herbrand Larsen once again produced GORGOROTH in the studio.
According to Gaahl and King, the Swedish appeal courts (Hovretten in Malmö) recently upheld the decision by authorities at Tingretten in the matter concerning Regain Records' unauthorized release of GORGOROTH's "True Norwegian Black Metal - Live in Grieghallen" album. Regain Records was once again found in violation of copyrights and agreements made with Gaahl and King and was ordered to cease distribution of this release.
"Live in Grieghallen" was released in June via Regain. According to a press release, the CD was recorded live at Grieghallen in Bergen, Norway by Eirik "Pytten" Hundvin and features Infernus on bass and guitar, Gaahl on vocals, and Garghuf on drums.
