Norwegian black metallers GORGOROTH have parted ways with bassist and songwriter King ov Hell."King has recently had problems fronting some of the ideological aspects of his band GORGOROTH's agenda," reads a posting on the group's web site. "As a result, it has now been mutually agreed upon that henceforth he is no longer a member of the band GORGOROTH." GORGOROTH's new album, "Ad Majorem Sathanas Gloriam", was released in Europe on June 19 via Regain Records. The CD will receive a U.S. release on July 25 through Candlelight. "Ad Majorem Sathanas Gloriam" is said to be "the logical next chapter for the highly decorated and controversial Norwegian black metal band; many already calling it their most accomplished work to date." The CD was mastered by guitarist Infernus (real name: Roger Tiegs) at the Cutting Room in Stockholm, Sweden. 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.
