I'm positive this Norwegian band isn't a mystery for
anyone. Gorgoroth will soon record its new fullenght album so I simply had to
do an interview with them. However, Infernus didn't do his best job on
answering this interview, to use his own words: "Sorry for not taking
too much time making the answers longer and more complete". I'm not
really sure if you'll learn anything about the album but you can always read
it if you have a few seconds left...
we could begin this with sorting out some rumors I’ve heard in the
underground lately. It says that Abbath from Immortal and Ivar from Enslaved
will participate on the new album you will record during summer, then again I
heard that they won’t participate on the recording etc. Explain this for me.
And how is
the current line-up then?
Can you give us a little guide around the album
”Incipit Sathanas”? Please tell us something about each song. How would you
say the new material differ from your latest album ”Destroyer”?
something about you doing a cover on Mayhem for some tribute album. What song
are you doing and what made you pick that one?
of Thrash Metal... How is it to combine Gorgoroth with your second band
To get back to Gorgoroth... I’m unfortunately not one
of those who have been able to witness Gorgoroth performing live so please tell
me how your shows usually looks like. Are there any chances for us in Sweden to
catch Gorgoroth live in the future?
I really hope so, as I would do nearly anything to play live now, and maybe especially in Sweden, since we after all so far haven't.
Certain of your songtitles have allready been used by other bands. ”Open The Gates” (Dark Funeral), "Revelation Of Doom" (Bathory) etc. Don’t you check this before you name a song?
Maybe we do, and maybe not! -so what?
Despite you have released relatively many albums since ”Pentagram” in 1996 none of them sound the same (But you can still tell it’s Gorgoroth). How do you do to come up with new ideas after each recording?
a) you have to want something (of interest), and b) you have to have a certain amount of talent. -and I have them both, rigth? 1000 times ' ha, ha'!
As you have written much material for Gorgoroth, Desekrator etc. (not all material but much of it), one can almost imagine you don’t do anything but play music. But what do you do besides of your bands?
I do for instance study religions science at the University of Bergen.
