Infernus, guitarist for Norwegian black metallers Gorgoroth, has posted the following update: “I am writing to inform you about the fact that there has been taken a decision to split up the band, Infernus on one side, Gaahl (vocals) and King (Ov Hell - bass) on the other. We can not continue working together any longer. What is still not agreed upon is who rightfully get to keep the band’s name, as it is both parts will to continue. Since this will be a question of legal affairs, I am afraid this might take time to get sorted out. I am sorry for that.”
This follow up statement was posted on the Gorgoroth website: "Vocalist Gaahl (lyrics) and King (bassist/composer) will continue the scheduled European tour in November under the name Gorgoroth with a replacement for Infernus. King and Gaahl will continue to work together musically, performing their art
live and recording in the future. This decision was reached by Gaahl and King as they have been the driving force behind Gorgoroth's music for the past eight years. Infernus has stated he will take King and Gaahl to court over future use of the name Gorgoroth."
