Regain Records has set a June 19 European release date for the new album from Norwegian black metallers GORGOROTH, entitled "Ad Majorem Satanhas Gloriam". The CD will be mastered next week by guitarist Infernus (real name: Roger Tiegs) at the Cutting Room in Stockholm, Sweden.
As previously reported, GORGOROTH will hold a listening session for "Ad Majorem Satanhas Gloriam" during the Inferno Festival in Oslo, Norway. The press is invited to listen to the album and do interviews with all members of GORGOROTH at the Rock In bar on Friday, April 14 beginning at 1:30 p.m. After the listening session, an unmastered MP3 sample will be available for download from the group's official web site.
GORGOROTH bassist and songwriter King ov Hell will take off for New York this week to sit in on another listening session for the new CD and to give interviews.
GORGOROTH reportedly recorded several shows on their fall 2005 European tour with 1349 for an upcoming live album, entitled "True Norwegian Black Metal". Scheduled for a late autumn release in 2007, it will mark and celebrate GORGOROTH's 15-year anniversary.
GORGOROTH were most recently signed to Nuclear Blast Records, who released the band's last three efforts: "Twilight of the Idols" (2003), "Incipit Satan" (2000) and "Destroyer" (1998). The band's first three albums — "Pentagram" (1994), "Antichrist" (1996) and "Under the Sign of Hell" (1997) — were re-released last year in a remastered, digipack version via the French label Season of Mist.
