Former GORGOROTH Drummer To Publish First Novel

Former GORGOROTH drummer Erlend Erichsen (who played on the "Incipit Satan" album) has finished work on his debut novel, entitled "Nasjonalsatanisten", which is scheduled to be released in October via Damm Forlag (major Norwegian publisher).

The story of the novel is set in the early/mid-Nineties, when Norwegian black metal started to expand. Although the story is fictional, much of it is based on Erichsen's own experiences and observations as an active member of the scene.

GORGOROTH's new album, "Ad Majorem Sathanas Gloriam", is tentatively scheduled for release in late 2005/early 2006 via Sweden's Regain Records. The band 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).

GORGOROTH last year inked a deal with the French label Season of Mist for the reissues of their first three albums: "Pentagram" (1994), "Antichrist" (1996) and "Under the Sign of Hell" (1997). All three were re-released earlier this year in a remastered, digipack version.
