ABIGOR Split Up!

Austrian black metal outfit ABIGOR have officially split up, according to mainman Peter Kubik. "There are different reasons for my decision, mainly because I am pissed by the entire Black-Metal genre," Kubik explained in a statement announcing the group's decision to disband. "I simply can't identify myself, nor ABIGOR with today's Black-Metal genre anymore — it simply limits my creativity in so many ways, and I guess too many people and fans won't be able to understand the new material, because it's by far too untypical, technical and complex. Too many are addicted to old values, and our previous releases, while I hate stagnation and I am not willed to compose a copy of any previous record just to satisfy the need of the people, and our distributions!

"ABIGOR was deeply rooted within Black-Metal, within its true values — not addicted to sale-rates, not addicted to the opinion & reviews of magazines, and fucking not addicted, nor interested in the views & opinions of x-hundred fans, that tried to tell us how we should create music that they like it. ABIGOR stud for individuality! We never set us any limits, it was the union of quite different and insane individuals that tried to realize their visions through music — self-realization — as I called it throughout the years — all on a very personal level. To sum it up, ABIGOR was the expression of extreme mental attitudes through extreme music, based on a satanic, blasphemic & misanthropic background. However, I won't discuss about decisions anymore, just accept it — ABIGOR is dead & gone!

"I'd like to thank all the current, new- and ex-members, and the Napalm [Records] crew for their 200% support. A last hail to all our die-hard fans that supported ABIGOR since 1993, and all the bands and individuals I am in frequent contact with, you know who you are — the flame's still burning, but the circle is closed...

"The website will still be online and updated from time to time, just to inform you about the new/other activities of the members, but be sure, there won't be a re-union!

"--- Peter
(ABIGOR 1993-2003)"
