Gorgoroth was founded by Infernus in 1992 as a strategy to perpetrate sonic and spiritual violence upon the world in order to bring forth change in peoples perception of being therein. Thus, through metal music, Satans minister on earth summoned an avatara of the forces of darkness and did let it manifestate through a variety of attempts on creating what was perceived as ultimate black metal taking form on stage as well as in a variety of studio recordings.

During its first period Gorgoroth went through a lot of line up changes due to a much too prevalent lack of focus and of low will amongst the members. Also musical and ideological incompatibility as well as even suicide and imprisonments has been taking its toll. Nevertheless, the band came strenghthened through it with a fair amount of live performances as well as the albums Pentagram, Antichrist and Under the Sign of Hell on the curriculum vitae.

From the end of the 1990's the band changed and grew more mature, musically as well as consciously. With the devoted presence of the new full time members Gaahl and King, as well as a not a day too early achieved social and mental fundament for future work, a deal was inked with the german label Nuclear Blast and the band to a bigger extent adopted the position as a live performance act taking upon them several tours worldwide bringing its sinister presence and the word of Satan to new territories, all from countryside Norway Hell to El Salvador and even Poland. After the release of Destroyer, Incipit Satan and Twilight of the Idols plus some more courtcases and other hassle Gorgoroth are still standing and proving to be a force to be reckoned with.

Now, going through the most productive period in the bands history the synthesis of hard work and legal problems seems to have brought forth the best in these men, and anger levels and a wanting for a better result now seem higher than ever. With Ad Majorem Sathanas Gloriam it's again time for philosophizing with the hammer. It's a sign of an iron fist and a warning of another and more darker period to come.

In the name of terror and fear, fear of the powers of darkness: prepare for a coming of a modern day inhuman and non-secular Satanism channeled through the vehicle of metal music as only these infernal servants are able to.

Current (live) line-up:
Gaahl - Vocals
Infernus - Guitars
King - Bass
Dirge Rep - Drums
Eihwaz - Guitars

My take:
HuhHuh?Christianity is based only on stolen souls and lies. And, so, of course every trace of them should be erased,?HuhHuh the words of Gaahl Gorgoroth. Gaahl, the Aleister Crowley of Metal, is the most forthright Black Metal Artist on the scene. HuhHuh?You don?HuhHuh?t perform Black Metal without being a warrior. Black Metal is a war against?HuhHuh what everyone knows,?HuhHuh more of Gaahl?HuhHuh?s words. HuhHuh?What everyone knows?HuhHuh? Christianity? From listening to Gaahl, surely he speaks of a war against the religion of Christianity. Shocking to most of the World yet realistic to others, one cannot deny the rash of Christian Churches being torched around the World. Whether, Black Metal is the motive behind Church burnings it has been subjected to accusations of blame. Gaahl?HuhHuh?s responses to Church burnings: HuhHuh?Church burnings and all these things, are of course a thing that I support one hundred percent. It should have been done much more, and will be done much more in the future. We have to remove every trace from what Christianity and the Semitic roots have to offer this World.HuhHuh? This idealism is the most brutal outlook in the Black Metal genre.

For more incite on Gaahl, here is a video that is a candid look at the singer. Two Journalists actually visit Gaahl's home in Norway.

I love the new CD, it's stunning. I wish they'd tour the US, I don't think they've ever had a North American tour.::pouting

I wonder what Gaahl's prison stent was like... I'm guessing Norway's prisons are like Mountain Retreats, since they are so liberal.

Finally, some true black metal.

Gorgoroth has done much for my musical tastes and evolution into what i am today. Their distorted style of music as well as obvious messages have sculpted my as well as many others into the cult music fans we are today. I am not saying that i owe everything to them (mostly its been burzum and judas iscariot), they have played their part.

What gets to me sometimes though is some irony....Gaahl went to jail for beating a man in order to drink his blood at a show, yet he is a vegitarian...

in the words of gaahl himself....

"Satan...." & "Freedom..."
