The cover artwork for GORGOROTH's new album, "Ad Majorem Sathanas Gloriam", has been posted online at this location. The CD is scheduled for release in Europe on June 19 via Regain Records and July 25 in the U.S. through Candlelight.

01. Wound upon Wound
02. Carving a Giant
03. God Seed (Twilight of tha Idols)
04. Sign of an Open Eye
05. White Seed
07. Untamed Forces
08. Prosperity and Beauty
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.
