Has anyone actually managed to keep tabs on what's been going on in the ever evolving Gorgoroth soap opera? I'm not entirely convinced that the assorted members and their lawyers know who's in the band, although the last I heard King ov Hell and Gaahl had won the latest battle.
Whatever happens with the legal shenanigans and the split with Infernus, at least they've left us with a live recording from the days when they were happy to share mascara and lipliner. Although I get the impression that the Gaahl / King Ov Hell camp aren't too happy about this release. Or maybe that's just because Infernus is in favour of it. And because the record company sided with Infernus. My head hurts. Oh, and now Gaahl and King are trying to stop this release. Give me a break.
Anyway, back to the live CD, recorded in Bergen, Norway. You won't grow old listening to it, as it only lasts 31 minutes and contains eight songs. What do you mean that's more then enough? Heathen. It's definitely one for the fans as they rattle through a bunch of old favourites like 'Bergtrollets Hevn ' and 'Revelation Of Doom' which live up to the albums subtitle of "True Norwegian Black Metal".
It's a riff frenzy with the diabolical shrieks of Gaahl lording it over and above the slightly deranged, raw and meaty sound with the live drums of Garghuf extremely well miked and mixed. Here's hoping it's still around for you to buy your copy.
